Vision tests are important to ensure that you always have the best vision you can have. Through the tests, the optician can determine if you need aids to see the best possible, and if so, which aids (such as glasses or contact lenses) will work best for you.
In addition, a thorough vision test can also detect changes in the eye, which can be warnings for certain diseases such as diabetes.
What happens on a vision test?
The optician will start by talking to you about how you experience your vision today. If you have vision problems, it is important to map out which situations you find challenging.
Using various devices and tests, the optician then examines how well you see with the right and left eyes separately, and how well you see with them together. In addition, both the outer eye (cornea and eyelid) and the inner eye (lens and retina) are examined using a hand-held microscope or stand on a stand with a chin rest.
In some cases, the optician will too
measure the pressure on the eye
test color vision
check field of view
When all measurements and examinations have been done, you will get a thorough explanation of what the optician has found. You will also receive advice with possible solutions so that you can see the best possible. This can be glasses, contact lenses or other treatment.
