Unlike most of your body, your eyes do not usually hurt when there is something wrong.

We use a range of diagnostic techniques and equipment to build up an accurate picture of the health of your eyes and detect common ocular problems.

Our examination can pick up early signs of potentially blinding eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease or macular degeneration.

The earlier a problem is detected the greater the chance of successful treatment.

The eye examination can also detect a number of other underlying health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.
Examples of Equipment that we may use where deemed useful are:

TONOMETER measures ocular pressure
VISUAL FIELD SCREENER monitors field of vision
REFRACTOR HEAD checks refractive error
SLIT LAMP inspects the ocular surfaces and lids
KERATOMETER measures corneal curvature/ monitors tear film
COLOUR VISION TEST detects colour deficiencies
COLOUR OVERLAYS to aid reading in cases of Visual Stress/Symptoms of Dyslexia
*DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING photographs the retina

An eye exam checks whether your eyesight needs correcting with glasses and determines the best form of correction for your vision.
*Available at our Southampton Practice
