Comprehensive Eye Exam
1.Case History Taking
History taking is crucial for letting us understand your best interests. Detailed enquiries about your chief complaints, daily habits, visual demand, personal general and ocular health history, medication and family health history will be made.
2.Vision and Refraction Assessment
Various visual acuity charts (including letters, numbers, E charts and Lea Symbols) which meet international standard are used to examine the vision of patients over a broad age range.
With the assistance of the latest refractive instrumentation, refractive error (including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia) and amblyopia (lazy eyes) are measured precisely by professional optometrists.
3.Binocular Vision Assessment
Assessing binocular function can identify strabismus (squint) and even some of the rather serious ocular or systemic complications.
4.Colour Vision Assessment
Ishihara are used to rule out any congenital colour vision deficiency. Appropriate counselling will be given accordingly.
5.Intra-ocular Pressure and Corneal Thickness Measurement
Intra-ocular pressure measurement aids in diagnosing glaucoma. Measuring corneal thickness can ensure more accurate intra-ocular pressure measurement.
6.Digital Retinal Scans
With the fundus camera, high definition retinal photos (including optic nerve head, macula, retinal blood vessels, etc.) are taken for the purposes of diagnosing retinal diseases and monitoring pathological changes.
7.Ocular Health Assessment
Thorough ocular health assessment of various eye structures such as cornea, crystalline lens and macula is performed with the use of advanced ophthalmic equipment. Dilated fundus examination is performed with pupil dilation drops as a routine for most adult patients, while it is performed for children based on indication.
8.Diagnosis and Professional Advice
Our optometrists will analyze the eye examination results and provide you with appropriate recommendations based on your ocular conditions. A detailed eye examination report will also be given for your own record.
We suggested patients aged 40 or above, with high myopia (defined as equal or more than -6.00D) or with diabetes should perform comprehensive eye exam annually to ensure good ocular health. Appropriate treatment can then be made more effectively if any abnormalities are found at early stage.
