Eye Test

Not all eye exams are the same. Book our comprehensive exam today.

At Vision Centre, we believe in the importance of thorough and personalized eye care. Our comprehensive eye test is a meticulous process, typically lasting up to 40 minutes.

It encompasses a holistic assessment, focusing not only on your vision but also on the health of your eyes. During this exam, our fully qualified registered Optometrist, guides you through a series of key steps designed to ensure your visual well-being. We begin with a discussion about your family’s eye history and general health, followed by an exploration of how you use your eyes in various aspects of your life, be it work, home, or leisure activities.

When was the last time you had your eyes tested?

Every exam is unique to you

At Vision Centre we believe that no eye test should be the same, just as no individual the same. Every eye test is conducted from start to finish by your optometrist and may include:

  • Advanced Pretesting of Colour Blindness, Focal length, Eye fluid pressure, Corneal Shape & Thickness, depth perception and Peripheral Vision
  • Assessment of pupil function, eye muscle coordination and alignment, as well as an evaluation of visual comfort and function, a thorough examination of the external eye, including the lids, lashes, conjunctiva, and cornea, while also assessing any UV or sunlight-related damage.
  • We meticulously inspect the lens, retina, optic disc, macula, and blood vessels.
  • Our eye exams may also includes measuring the pressure inside each eye and evaluating the risk of glaucoma, with advanced techniques such as ganglion cell and nerve fiber layer analysis.

Following this comprehensive examination, we provide a detailed diagnosis and discuss the best management options tailored to your unique eyes and lifestyle.

Some of the equipment you may see at our clinics

All of our clinics have state-of-the-art equipment that supports our optometrists perform an eye test and look after your vision.

Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO)

Look clearer and see more detail

A Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) is a medical imaging device that uses laser technology to create detailed, high-resolution images of the retina, enabling the visualization of the eye’s internal structures and aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of various eye conditions. This imaging provides far more detail than traditional retinal photography.

Scanning Laser Widefield Retinal Analysis

Look further and see the periphery of your retina, to get a more comprehensive view of your eye health

Scanning Laser Widefield Retinal Analysis uses laser technology to create a detailed view including  your peripheral retina, allowing for a wider and more comprehensive overview of your retinal health. This is great information for everybody, especially if you are at risk of macular degeneration, diabetic eye conditions or hypertensive retinopathy.

Zeiss 4D Retinal Assessment

Look deeper, below the surface

Our Zeiss 4D Retinal Assessment allows us to look below the surface of your retina for early detection of macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic eye problems and other retinal eye problems. The scan is quick, painless and precise. It detects eye conditions up to 5 years earlier than other technology. Early detection saves sight.

This assessment enables us to see through the retina to the underlying internal layers which are usually invisible to the eye or photography. It is a fundamentally new type of medical diagnostic technology, more precise than ultrasound or MRI. Each of the ten important layers of the retina can be identified. It is the ultimate technology for precise diagnosis and treatment.

Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. Since the cornea is responsible for around 70% of the eye’s refractive power. its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision. The three dimensional corneal topography map is a valuable aid in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions including keratoconus and corneal degenerations. It is invaluable in assessing the fit of contact lenses, and in corneal refractive therapy where the cornea is reshaped giving vision correction while you sleep to correct nearsightedness.

Frequently asked questions

How long does the eye test go for?

A Vision Centre eye test is 30 minutes, allowing for a tailored examination of your eyes, a lifestyle consultation and detailed discussion of our findings. Some procedures require additional time.
