(Eye Power Test) for 4 years & above
- It is important to ascertain whether you are able to see as you should. We will ensure that you are prescribed with comfortable spectacle power to address your daily visual needs.
- Especially for young children who are unable to tell if they are developing poor vision, it is important to ensure that appropriate eye tests are done periodically and the children are closely monitored for their vision development and myopia progression.
- If you wear eye-glasses all day it is important to ensure that appropriate eye checks are done periodically. Overpowered or underpowered eye- glasses can affect your visual comfort hence your productivity or performance at work.
- Our refractive status assessments are very thorough giving you comfortable vision all day.
II. BINOCULAR VISION ASSESSMENT (Coordination of the Eyes)
Do your eyes work together well?
Having two eyes means that they need to work together well for you to see comfortably. Do you
find yourself experiencing tired eyes, fatigue, eye strain or double vision after a long day? If so, vision assessments of your eye coordination can potentially unveil the causes of these symptoms.
Particularly so for young children, their learning outcome may be affected if they do not have good visual skills. It is important to ensure that appropriate eye tests are conducted periodically to closely monitor a child’s vision and visual skills development. A child’s visual assessments during their developing years is crucial and essential for optimum learning outcomes.
Binocular vision assessment checks the coordination of your two eyes. Without good eye coordination, you may experience uncomfortable vision that will lead to symptoms like fatigue, eye strain, headaches, double vision or poor depth perception. Determining your binocular vision status is an important step in investigating such symptoms.
III. TONOMETRY (Eye Pressure Check) &
EYE HEALTH ASSESSMENT : ANTERIOR (Front) & POSTERIOR (Back)
1. Are your eyes healthy?
- If you have never had your eye health checked, you cannot be sure if they are. Some eye diseases can develop without any symptoms at the initial stage e.g. cataract, glaucoma, diabetes retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration.
- Our clinical assessment processes evaluate the health of both the front (anterior) and back (posterior) of your eye and this will give you an indication to the status of your eye health.
2. Do you understand?
- How often do you feel like you do not understand what is going on with the outcomes of your health checks?
- You can be assured that you will not feel that way at the end of your comprehensive eye examination with us.
- At the end of the process, you will be enlightened on your visual status and understand the common eye diseases that you will need to watch out for.
i. TONOMETRY (Eye Pressure Check)
Tonometry is a test that is commonly conducted during a routine eye check-up.
It can detect changes in eye pressure. As these changes within the eye are often painless, they can persist for years undetected. So, it is important to have routine assessment as it can help determine if you are at risk of developing glaucoma.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that arises from fluid build-up within the eye and damage to the optic nerve. If untreated, the pressure can eventually damage the optic nerve resulting in a loss of vision.
ii. SLIT-LAMP BIOMICROSCOPY EXAMINATION
Eye Health Assessment – Anterior (Front) Structures
1. SLIT-LAMP EXAMINATION – ANTERIOR (Front) Eye Health Assessment
A thorough assessment of the lids and anterior part of the eye, allows us to pick up conditions such as Inward-Growing Eyelashes which can be quite damaging to the cornea (eye surface). If left unmanaged, it can potentially lead to scarring of the cornea.
As you approach 30s or 40s, it is very important to monitor your eye health as this can affect how well you can see. There are various eye conditions that we can detect in an anterior eye health examination, such as dry eye, corneal degeneration, lids issues, growth on conjunctiva, cataract (lens yellowing) etc.
2. SLIT-LAMP EXAMINATION – CONTACT LENS FITTINGS
We conduct proper fitting of contact lenses and its necessary follow-up.
Contact lenses provide good vision without the hassle of wearing eye-glasses.
- Its interaction with the cornea (front surface) of your eye means that contact lens wearer bears a risk of infection.
- Our fitting process ensures you have the most appropriate contact lenses for your everyday needs, so it is important to find the right fit.
With the right contact lenses and healthy eyes, you can enjoy comfortable vision without eye-glasses.
iii. FUNDUS EXAMINATION (Retinal Photography / Ophthalmoscopy)
Eye Health Assessment – Posterior (Back) Structures
Fundus examination involves the photographic examination of the posterior structures of the eye, to document the condition of the eye and detect abnormalities.
It is used to evaluate vascular and structural changes at the back part of the eye and for assessing the progression of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy and macular degeneration.
It is also used to document changes at the back part of the eye due to the increasing short-sightedness.
As these changes within the eye are often painless, and does not affect vision at its initial stage, they can persist for years undetected.
Therefore, it is important to have routine eye health assessment of the fundus as it can help determine if you are at risk of developing eye condition.
It also enables you to monitor and manage the changes of eye conditions.
