Eye Examinations – Checkup Plus
About Your Checkup Plus™ Eye Examination
At Rolfe Eyecare Plus Optometrists, our experienced optometrist will take the time needed to provide a thorough eye examination. It’s called Checkup Plus™.
Your Checkup Plus™ examination with our optometrist will take between 30 to 45 minutes. During your examination, a health history will be recorded. It is important for you to provide all information, regardless of how insignificant you might think it is.
A Checkup Plus™ examination includes testing for the following:
- Eye health
- General physical health
- Clearness of vision (Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism)
- Colour vision
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Focusing ability (Presbyopia)
- Eye muscle control
- Amblyopia (lazy eye)
- Macular degeneration
- UV Damage
- Suitability for refractive laser surgery and other areas as appropriate for each individual.
Following the Checkup Plus™ examination, our optometrist will carefully explain the results and discuss their recommendations regarding any preventive or remedial care required.
Sometimes further examination or treatments might be needed depending on our findings. These are typically covered in a second examination. Extra testing can include:
The early detection of eye diseases leads to better outcomes
Your eyes can be the window to your health

- Don’t hesitate to say so if you are unable to answer some of the questions
- Don’t be alarmed if, for a few minutes during the examination, you find your vision getting worse instead of better.
