To maintain a high quality of eye health and very good vision, a comprehensive and in-depth eye examination is highly recommended on a regular basis at least every 1 1/2 to 2 years. The primary importance of such examinations are to assess the health of the ocular tissues, test for glaucoma, and macular degeneration, and to record an ongoing history of your eye health as well as updated prescription information. Additionally, the combination of a qualified eye doctor and advanced medical diagnostic equipment ensures detection of most visual conditions and disorders before symptoms arise. We are happy to assist you in book an eye examination with a qualified Optometrist..
Preliminary tests include assessing visual acuity, eye muscles, pupils, and colour vision. A careful refraction is performed in order to obtain the correct and most suitable prescription for eyeglasses, if required. Once this basic eye exam is done, biomicroscopy is performed to better assess your ocular health. Dilated retinal examination may also be required, and intra-ocular pressures will be taken.
Once your eye exam is completed, the helpful staff at Josephson Opticians can help you find the perfect set of frames.
