An eye examination is dual purpose. It not only determines if you need spectacles or contact lenses to maximise the clarity of vision but also assesses the health of your eyes.
Not every eye examination is the same. Our highly skilled eye care professionals will tailor the test depending on the individual patient’s requirements. With the aid of our latest diagnostic equipment our optometrists will always spend the time they need to make sure they have a thorough assessment of the condition of your eyes. Your examination will normally last around 30 minutes.
You’ll be pleased to hear we no longer measure your eye pressure using the “the puff of air”. We have invested new equipment to assess your pressures more accurately and it creates a more pleasant experience for the patient.
Retinal photography a specialized check that is usually the preserve of hospital eye departments, it is now available at a small additional charge here at Drage and Tozer. It assists us to detect the slightest change in eye health, which leads to early diagnosis of certain eye/general health conditions. In some instances, our optometrists may recommend retinal photography, but it is available to everyone. Please ask for advice when making your appointment.
At the end of the appointment we will explain and discuss our findings with you and advise you of the next course of action. Should you require a new prescription one of our dispensing team will be on hand to offer advice on all of the frames, lenses, tints and coatings that are available to improve your vision.
