Eye Health and Conditions

Discover what to expect from your eye examination, why eye health is so important and learn about some of the most common eye conditions and what they mean.

 

Why is your Eye Examination so important?

 

During your examination appointment, we not only check the prescription required for any spectacles but give your eyes a thorough health check at the same time.

 

As well as any eye health issues, we can also detect signs of high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol.

 

 

Myopia 

 

Myopia (short sightedness) causes blurred distance vision. Spectacles are usually required for tasks such as driving or watching television.

 

Hypermetropia 

 

Hypermetropia (long sightedness) causes blurred near/intermediate vision in its most common form. With this condition, spectacles are required for tasks such as reading and computer use.

 

 

Astigmatism

 

Astigmatism, sometimes known as "rugby ball shaped eyes", causes distorted vision for both distance and near. Spectacles may be required for both distance and near tasks.

 

Presbyopia

 

Presbyopia or "arms not long enough!" causes reduced near vision. It becomes apparent for most people in their mid-forties onwards. This can occur in isolation, or with myopia, hypermetropia or astigmatism. Spectacles are required for tasks such as reading.
