Testing with the Optometrist
When you see the optometrist they will discuss the eye health results with you then conduct the vision test.
Our optometrists are trained in general optometry along with further specialist training in specific disorders of the eye. During the consultation, we will go over the relevant parts of your ocular history, examine the results of the pretests and review your vision. After this we can discuss the best management of your specific eye condition, be it the need for general or specific frames and lenses or contact lenses . Occasionally, further tests will be required.
If you have keratoconus or require complex contact lens fitting. We will need to conduct extra scans and conduct trial lens fittings. The consultation could be up to 1 hour or more to allow us to get all the details we need before ordering your lenses.
If you are coming for orthokeratology lens fitting again we need to take a lot of images to get as much information on the eye shape. We also need to measure corneal thickness and eyeball length.
After the Consultation
If you need glasses you will proceed to our frame section and choose the frames that best suit your face , complexion and your prescription.
If you came in for contact lens fitting we will order your customised lenses after looking at all the results
How long will it take?
The eye test will take around 45 minutes and then the frame selection time will vary. On average it will be a further 15 to 30 minutes. So, give yourself 1 to 1 ½ hours.
