Our vision testing now includes checks for cataracts and glaucoma and is better and more effective than ever.
When was the last time you had your eyes tested?
Experts recommend getting an eye test every year to 18 months to identify any changes in your prescription as well as diagnosing or, hopefully, ruling out eye diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma.
There is no need to worry about an eye test – they aren’t scary in the slightest!
Every eye test is different depending on the individual but a typical examination more or less follows the same steps, which are described below:
To begin, if you are a new customer, we will take all of your details, including finding out if you already wear glasses or contact lenses.
If you have glasses, but cannot remember your prescription, we have a machine that can determine the strength of your lenses.
We will then test if you are long-sighted or short-sighted using our modern autorefractor machine.
The machine measures the shape of the cornea and also how light is changed as it enters the eye.
Afterward, you will be taken into the examination room.
Here, your optician will use a variety of tests to determine the patient’s exact prescription.
For example, during the test, the patient will also be required to read a test chart (a series of letters) through different lenses to determine the quality of your eyesight.
Here at Heiko by Heiko, your extended eye test is free of charge and, as stated above, it is best for you and your family to get tested every year to 18 months, so what are you waiting for?
