2 SYMPTOMS, GENERAL HEALTH AND LIFESTYLE REQUIRMENTS
Tell us about any problems with your eyes, your health and what you do in your spare time that requires vision correction, e.g. Golf, Swimming etc. This will help us tailor the eye test for your individual needs and investigate any problems you may have.

4 VISION TEST
Your vision will be checked with and without glasses
5 CO-ORDINATION TESTS
Your eye movements and co-ordination are checked.
We shine a light into your eye to give us a starting point for your eyetest. In some young children this is how we work out there prescription even if they can’t speak yet.
7 CLEARER OR BLURRED TEST
Different lenses will be placed in front of your eyes while looking at the big chart with the letters on it. You will be asked is it better or worse? Is it clearer or blurred? Don’t worry, you can’t give the wrong answer!
8 RED GREEN TEST
Try to make the black circles on the red and green panels equal, it’s not easy.

To ensure maximum comfort with your new spectacles or contact lenses we may do a blur test on each eye depending on your prescription.

Your ability to see small print is checked and measured. If you are over 40 years of age you will probably require reading glasses or varifocals.

We may need to put drops into your eyes to make your pupils (black part of eye) bigger to allow us a better view of the inside of your eye.

We shine another light onto the front surface of your eye and using a microscope we can get a detailed look at the front of your eyes.

We might need to check your side vision by using a machine that flashes small lights and you can count them as they flash up around the sides of your vision.
