What’s involved in a Sight Test
You can rest assured that although having an eye test is a straightforward process, all our examinations are very thorough. Lasting approximately forty minutes, our highly trained optician will look closely at all aspects of your vision and eye health.
We’ll ask some questions about your sight, your general health, your family’s health and your lifestyle. There are lots of different tests that can be carried out during your eye examination, so your Space Healthcare clinical team will tailor this to suit your individual needs. While testing your eyes, we’ll look at the following:
- Vision quality
- Unaided and aided vision (with any glasses or contact lenses you already use)
- Eye muscle performance and health
- Internal eye health
- Front of eye health, including eye fluid pressure
- Further tests for depth perception, colour vision and your visual field may also be performed if required
All of our tests are carried out using the ultimate in eye examination technology and your Space Healthcare clinical team will provide step-by-step explanations so you know exactly what is involved at each stage.
