Having a regular full eye exam is crucial in protecting your and your family’s eyesight. These tests allow your Optometrist, Simon Kleyn, to detect changes in your eye so alterations can be made to your spectacle prescription.
You won’t be rushed: Most of our clients only require an eye examination once every 2 years, so we want to provide you with the most thorough eye examination available. That’s why we offer longer appointment times than frequently found at other opticians, with time to clearly explain the results of your eye examination and answer any questions you may have.
The extra time allows us to learn more about you, and what your needs and preferences are, meaning you’ll get the most effective advice and solutions because its tailored specifically to you.
We don’t do basic: We offer the highest standard of eye examination to our patients as standard as we believe everyone should be able to benefit from the most comprehensive eye care available, and the greatest peace of mind.
We examine the back of your eye with an Optos laser camera, there is no risk or pain and this test virtually never needs dilation eye drops.
Many eye diseases, if detected early, can be treated successfully. Regular eye care can uncover both eye and systemic (entire body) problems. If these problems are left untreated, there is a risk of disability, suffering, and loss of productivity. The goals of an eye exam is to avoid or minimise adverse effects on the eye and vision, as well as to identify potential problems early in order to prevent any problems, which may lead to vision loss.
There are also diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure which can be discovered by examining the eyes. Side effects of drugs may also sometimes be observed during eye examinations. Again, early detection is the key factor in treatment and sight preservation.
