What To Expect During An Eye Test

Our senior optometrist, Amnah Noori recommends going for an eye test once a year, even if you don't need a pair of glasses. Your age or health condition may impact the frequency of your eye test, so please check with us and we will be able to guide you.

Our standard eye test typically lasts around 45 minutes. Our skilled optometrists will assess your vision and evaluate the overall condition of your eyes. This process includes gathering information about your general health, personal and family medical history, and your eyewear experience, such as any prior use of glasses or contact lenses before your visit to Eye Connexion. We will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes, both externally and internally, to ensure their well-being.

In case further tests are deemed necessary, we are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide accurate diagnoses. We highly recommend scheduling appointments for eye examinations in advance, and you can do so by calling ahead or using the provided online booking option.

Regular eye tests are essential for maintaining optimal eye health. The recommended frequency of these exams can vary depending on your age and individual risk factors. Generally, individuals under the age of 55 may benefit from an eye test every few years. However, if you are aged 55 or older, it is advisable to have an annual eye test.

It's important to note that even if you do not wear glasses or contact lenses, having regular eye exams is still crucial to assess the overall health of your eyes. This becomes especially significant if you possess certain risk factors that make you more susceptible to eye diseases. These risk factors include:

  1. Family History of Eye Disease: If there is a history of eye conditions within your family, you may have a higher risk, and regular eye exams are vital for early detection and intervention.
  2. Diabetes: Individuals with diabetes are at an increased risk of eye-related complications, such as diabetic retinopathy. Regular eye tests can help monitor and manage these issues.
  3. Visually Demanding Job: Occupations that involve extensive computer use or prolonged near work may strain your eyes. Frequent eye tests can ensure that your eyes remain comfortable and healthy.
  4. Contact Lens Wear: Contact lens users should have regular eye exams in addition to comprehensive evaluations to ensure that their eyes tolerate the lenses well and remain free from complications.
  5. History of Eye Surgery: If you have previously undergone eye surgery, such as LASIK or cataract surgery, regular follow-up eye exams are essential to assess the outcomes and address any potential issues.
  6. Allergies: Allergic reactions can affect the health of your eyes. Regular eye exams can help manage symptoms and identify any complications arising from allergies.
  7. Worsening Vision: If you notice a decline in your vision, even if you don't wear corrective lenses, it is important to schedule an eye test promptly to identify any underlying causes and address them as needed.

In summary, regardless of whether you wear glasses or contact lenses, routine eye exams are critical for safeguarding your eye health. The recommended frequency of these exams should be adjusted based on your age and individual risk factors. Consult with an eye care professional to determine the most appropriate schedule for your specific needs and ensure the continued well-being of your eyes.

Even if you don't wear glasses or contact lenses, it's still important to have regular eye tests. Eye tests serve several purposes beyond determining if you need corrective lenses:

  1. Eye Health: Eye exams can help detect eye conditions and diseases early, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more. Detecting these issues early can often lead to more effective treatment and better outcomes.
  2. General Health: The eyes can provide valuable insights into your overall health. An optometrist may discover signs of systemic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, or even neurological disorders during an eye exam.
  3. Vision Changes: Even if you've never worn glasses, your vision can change over time. Regular eye exams can identify subtle changes in your vision that you might not have noticed on your own.
  4. Preventive Care: Eye exams are a form of preventive care. They can help ensure that your eyes remain healthy and that any potential issues are addressed promptly.
  5. Prescription Sunglasses: Even if you don't need corrective lenses for everyday vision, you may still benefit from prescription sunglasses, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. These can help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays while also providing clear vision.

The standard eye test and the advanced eye test with OCT are very different and provide different type of information about your eyes.

Standard Eye Test

A standard eye test is primarily focused on assessing your overall eye health and visual acuity (how well you can see). The optometrist will examine the external and internal structures of your eyes to detect signs of eye diseases or conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal disorders. Lastly, the eyecare professional will provide recommendations for vision correction or addressing any eye health concerns

Advanced Eye Test with OCT

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a specialized imaging technique that provides detailed, cross-sectional images of the various layers within the eye's structures. It is primarily used to diagnose and monitor eye conditions, especially those affecting the retina and optic nerve.

During the advanced eye test, your eyecare professional will use an OCT machine, which emits light waves to capture high-resolution images of the retina and optic nerve.

To learn more about the OCT and how the OCT eye test can benefit you, visit the OCT Scan page.

An OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) eye test is a specialised diagnostic imaging technique used to obtain detailed, cross-sectional images of the internal structures of the eye, particularly the retina and the optic nerve. It provides high-resolution, three-dimensional images that allow our eye care professionals to assess the health of your eyes and diagnose various eye conditions.
