Eye Tests

Why Eye Tests are important

It’s easier to notice changes in your vision, and it’s often the reason people book in for an eye exam. But changes to the health of your eyes are less obvious, allowing conditions to progress undetected.

A routine eye exam is a yearly or biyearly occurrence. It provides an opportunity to not only check your vision, but also screen for any underlying eye conditions.

Most eye conditions initially progress without symptoms, but are more effectively treated in their initial stages.

For this reason, Adam gives every patient, regardless of age or symptoms, a thorough assessment of both their vision and their eye health at every eye examination.

When you have an eye exam with Adam, it will involve the following.

Your Vision

      • Distance and near phorias,
      • Convergence ability,
      • Stereopsis, colour vision, saccadic, and pursuit eye movements
      • Eye tracking
  • Assessment of your distance and near vision
  • Determination of your perception (used for glasses and contact lenses). 
  • Discussion of applicable treatment options – glasses, contact lenses, prescription medicine.

Your Eye Health

  • Taking a detailed history of your eye and systemic health.
  • External and internal examination of your eyes using:
    • Digital Retinal Photography to see and take photos of the inside of your eyes,
    • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to see and scan the inside of the eyes,
    • Slit Lamp reviews to check for cataracts and view the surface of your eyes,
    • Non-Contact Tonometer to measure the pressure of your eyes.
  • Advice and discussion on any further testing required (if applicable), such as a visual fields assessment or referral to an ophthalmologist.
You'll also receive a recommendation on when to return for your next examination
