A full clinical examination is carried out to ensure the health of your eye is maintained, and any early signs of disease (if present) are identified.
The clinical examination includes measurement of the visual acuity (Va), a detailed assessment of the eye lids, conjunctiva, sclera (white part of the eye), cornea, anterior chamber (front section of the eye), pupil, iris, and pressure reading. The back of the eye is also examined using a special lens or ophthalmoscope. This enable assessment of the retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels inside the eye.
A thorough examination is highly recommended. We therefore recommend that you visit an optician for an eye examination on a regular basis.
