Our Eye Exams

It is important for everyone to have their eyes tested at least every two years as there are many conditions that may not be noticed by yourself, and can only be picked up with a thorough eye test. Our general examination lasts approximately 30 minutes and includes the following tests:

Visual acuity testing

We test your vision in each eye at both distance and near to make sure that you are seeing what is expected for your age group.

Refraction

This test is to calculate whether you require spectacles and the strength of the spectacles needed to improve your vision. This is what is commonly thought of as the 'one or two' test.

Binocular vision

These tests involves looking at how your eyes work together to determine how efficient they are. This is extremely important for classroom work, reading and playing sports.

Ocular health examination

This section is to ensure that the health of your eyes is okay. It consists of looking at both the front and the back of your eye under magnification to check there are no abnormalities.

Digital retinal imaging

Photography is the best way to record any changes in your eye and is also extremely important to obtain as a baseline image.

Intraocular pressure testing

This is a very fast test which checks the pressure within the eye. This is very important for detecting glaucoma and is important especially if there is a family history. We also have pachymetry testing which helps verify the measurement accuracy of eye pressures.

Visual fields examination

We have equipment to test your visual fields, also known as your side vision, to confirm that everything is in the normal range.

Corneal Topography

Our practice is equipped with a Medmont E300 Corneal topographer which is useful in mapping the shape of the cornea, the clear layer at the front of your eye. This is particularly important for treatment procedures such as Orthokeratology where the shape of the front of the eye is modified to give clear vision.

Colour Vision

Our practice is equipped with the Ishihara 24 plate diagnostic test which is used to assess for colour vision deficiencies.

Eye Health

Amblyopia

Amblyopia, or Lazy Eye, is a reduced vision, generally in only one eye. The condition usually results from poor eye co-ordination, from having a turned eye, or after having one eye which requires a far greater lens power.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an out-of-roundness of one or more surfaces in the eye's optical system.

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding or haze of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Opacities in the lens obstruct light from passing through and being focused on to the retina.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Approximately 4% of people have diabetes, often undiagnosed. Diabetes can damage many parts of the body, including the eyes, causing vision problems, glaucoma, cataract and diabetic retinopathy.

Floaters

Spots and floaters are semi-transparent specks of natural materials inside the eye, which sometimes can be seen floating in the field of vision.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease which slowly destroys the optic nerve at the back of the eye. In some cases in may move rapidly. It is usually caused by increased pressure inside the eye though it may be caused by poor blood supply or a weakness of the optic nerve. Over 300,000 Australians have glaucoma. It is more common as we age but it can occur at any age.

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or Long-sightedness, causes a person to see clearer at far than at near distances.

Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration (MD) is a disease that destroys the central vision that we use for everyday tasks such as reading and driving. It is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia. For patients older than 50 years, one in seven will have some sign of it. While there is presently no cure for MD if it is detected early enough we can slow its progression.

Myopia Control

Myopia or short-sightedness is increasing at an alarming rate. The onset of myopia at an early age brings with it the likelihood of life-long eye care, and there is a significantly increased risk of serious ocular health problems with high myopia, which can lead to vision loss and blindness. It is expected that 50% of the population will be myopic by 2050 and that 20% of those will have high myopia.

Pterygium

One of the most common effects of UV damage to the eye is pterygium. This is a triangular growth of thickened degenerative tissue on the white of the eye (the sclera) that may also extend onto the cornea (the window at the front of the eye).

UV Damage

In recent years, it has been shown that just like sunburn and skin cancers, exposure to ultra-violet (UV) radiation also causes eye damage.

Excessive UV exposure has become an increasing problem since the depletion of the ozone layer.
