We really believe in offering you top quality eye care and taking our time to do it properly. Rest assured that if there are any problems, we will spot them. Firstly, you’ll be asked some questions about your overall eye health, family history and any changes in your vision since your last check-up.
You’ll then have a series of checks using the latest, advanced eye care technology. As well as diagnosing if you need help with your vision, we’ll check your eyes for signs of serious eye conditions, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration.
Our Ballymoney practice has as an OCT scanner, which is used by the Optometrist to assess more parts of the eyes than ever before. This new technology is allowing us to look after you even better by detecting change earlier. Our other practices have digital retinal cameras which again allow us to monitor changes over time and save an image of your retina on your personalised record.
Did you know your eye exam could also flag up other medical conditions – like high blood pressure, risk of stroke and even some brain tumours. We’ll look for any signs of these, as part of our routine examination of your eyes.
Once the tests have been done, you can discuss the findings with your optometrist and ask any questions you like. If you need help with your eyesight, you’ll be given a prescription for the lenses. Of course, we hope there won’t be any serious problems, but if there are, you can be sure we’ll discuss them with you clearly and sensitively. Assuming that everything is OK, after the eye exam you’ll have a chance to sit down and chat with a member of our dispensing team about your options for eyewear, if a new prescription is required. Not everyone’s sight changes from year to year, so we’ll give you honest advice about this too.
If you need some new glasses our team will listen to your requirements and select some beautiful glasses for you. Rest assured we guarantee everything we do and we give you time to make your decision.
