Adult eye examination
Askew Eyewear in Stoke Newington advises you to take an eye examination regularly
Eye examinations take about 30 - 45 minutes. We don't just test for long or short-sightedness. We use advanced instruments to test for astigmatism, the distance between your pupils, your visual habits, even the way your eyes move around.
You end up with lenses that are an individual fit for you and provide you with the clearest vision.
Are your eyes healthy?
Your eye examination is an important health check too. We will check your eyes to see if there are indictions of other medical conditions. We will be looking for things like cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. Your eyes will also show the effects of other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure. We are also able to offer an additional check on the helaht of the eyes called OCT.
An OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography Scan) of the eyes is a 3d imaging technique that is similar to an MRI for the eyes which can help reveal earlier signs of eye conditions such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. Many of these conditions have a better prognosis (long-term outcome) with early detection.
