What to Expect
The General Eye Screening includes:
- Visual Acuity (Test for Distance & Near vision)
- Auto Refraction (Computerised measurement of the refractive power of your eyes)
- Tonometry (Computerised measurement of the eye pressure using a non-contact device)
- Refraction by Optometrist (Spectacles and/or contact lens prescription)
- Slit lamp examination (Detailed examination of the cornea, lens, vitreous, retina, optic nerve and macula)
Things to note:
- Please set aside 2 to 3 hours for the eye screening.
- Avoid wearing contact lenses on the day of your screening. We recommend that you wear your glasses and then put on your contact lenses after your eye screening.
- We may instil eye drops to dilate the pupils of your eyes and that may blur your near vision for a couple of hours. You will most likely resume normal vision within the next 12 to 24 hours.
- You are advised not to drive after your eye screening.
- Additional tests may be required based on the patient’s conditions. These additional tests may incur additional charges.
