Eye Testing

Routine eye examinations, regardless of the status of your vision, ensure the health of your eyes and early detection of eye disease. Adults are recommended to have an eye examination every two years unless otherwise advised by your optometrist.It is recommended children have an annual eye examination to ensure healthy vision development.

At Vision West we are able to screen for eye conditions including glaucoma, cataracts, macula degeneration and keratoconus. Comprehensive examination of the external and internal eye is undertaken as part of any regular eye examination at Vision West using the most up to date and accurate equipment. At Vision West we provide screening for signs of Diabetic Retinopathy. All of our optometrists are therapeutically endorsed, meaning they can prescribe topical ocular medications. Should any signs of an eye condition requiring medical intervention be apparent we will arrange for referral onto a suitable Ophthalmologist for treatment and management.
