Eye Test

Regular eye examinations are essential for clear, comfortable vision. They are an important health check too – the optometrist checks the health of your eyes and can find indications of other medical conditions.

There are hundreds of different ways to do the tests in your eye examination. This guide shows a typical example of each. You may not have all the tests described, because your optometrist will tailor your eye examination to suit your individual needs.

1 – Visiting the Opticians

The optical assistant makes sure that your confidential customer record is accurate and up-to-date.

If you are wearing contact lenses, you need to remove them before your eyes are tested.

2 – Using a non-contact tonometer

Using a non-contact tonometer, the optical assistant (or the optometrist) blows a few puffs of air at each of your eyes in turn. The air bounces back at the instrument, giving a measurement of the pressure inside each eye.

This is an important test, as high pressure can indicate the early stages of glaucoma, a sight-threatening condition.
