Eye tests and vision problems

Eye examinations are essential for assessing the standard of your vision and maintaining optimum eye health.
A standard eye exam is a relatively straightforward process and should take approximately 20-30 minutes, our optometrist will perform a thorough examination of your eyes to determine the strength of your vision.
We test for glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, dry eye and diabetic eye disease.
Eye tests can provide a broader assessment of your overall health and may even result in early identification of other health issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
We recommend you get your eyes tested at least once every two years. Children and people over the age of 65 should have a yearly check-up.

Typically, an eye exam every two years will keep your eyes healthy and your vision sharp. However, if you suffer from diabetes or other ocular abnormalities or have a family history of glaucoma or macular degeneration you should go for eye exams more frequently.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should arrange an exam with us.

  • Blurry vision
  • Eye strain/fatigue
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Squinting
  • Problems focusing
  • Headaches

Working with computers can strain your eyes. VDU Vision screening tests are important for anyone who spends more than an hour a day in front of a computer screen.

After your exam, we will have a detailed evaluation of your overall eye health. We can offer advice on prescription glasses or contact lenses if your vision needs to be corrected.
