General Eye Screening

Eye screening is important as it helps to detect potentially sight-threatening eye conditions such as cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and refractive errors. It is recommended that eye screening is conducted around the age of 40, or earlier if there is a family history of eye disease.

Our clinic has comprehensive eye screening packages which involve dilating the pupil by using the eye drops, allowing more thorough examination of your eye health and visual system.

  1. Comprehensive Eye Examination
    • History taking for eye and general health
    • Visual Acuity
    • Refraction
    • Intraocular Pressure measurement
    • Slit lamp and biomicroscopy of the front and back of the eye
    • Binocular Ophthalmoscopy of the retina
  2. Where required, your ophthalmologist will order other specialized tests. The following are examples of such tests. As not all tests may be needed, it is better and more cost effective to only have tests done as ordered by your eye specialist than to undergo “packages” which may have to commit you to all of the tests which one not necessary
