Eye Exam Perth 

An optical examination involves more than just checking your vision on an eye chart and prescribing lenses. Our Optometrists perform a non-invasive, comprehensive eye test to fully assess the vision, health and function of your eyes.

How Do I Find the Right Optometrist?

What to Expect During an Eye Exam?

An eye exam is one of the best ways to protect your vision because it can detect eye problems at their earliest stage — when they are most treatable. Regular eye exams give your Optometrist the opportunity to detect early changes in your vision and help you correct or adapt to vision changes.

When you book an eye test, our dedicated Optometrists will provide a thorough eye examination to assess your vision and eye health status. Your eye exam results will be reviewed along with your current vision needs and health history, your lifestyle, career and hobbies, in order to recommend the best eyewear solutions and vision care options specific to your needs.  

How Often Should I Have an Eye Test?

Nearly fifty per cent of patients found to have an eye disease had no symptoms at the time of diagnosis . Even if your vision is great, every adult should have their eye health checked at least once every two years. More frequent visits are required if you use contact lenses or suffer from certain medical conditions and your Optometrist will advise you of the most appropriate schedule for you.. Eighty per cent of learning is visual, therefore it is best to monitor your child from an early age and get their eyes checked if you notice any problems such as squinting or eye turns. It is also a good idea to book your children in for a through examination once they start school. Age increases our vulnerability to eye disease, so have your eyes examined every year after age 65.

If you are noticing any of the below symptoms, you should book an eye test immediately:

  • sudden onset of reduced or loss of vision
  • flashes or floating material in your vision
  • eye redness or pain
  • eye strain or headaches
  • discharge from the eye
