Wills Street Eyecare is a proud local business, and we love it when familiar faces pop back in for their regular check-ups.
It’s important to have your eyes comprehensively re-examined every 1-3 years, depending on your age and eye condition. Please allow 30 – 40 minutes with the optometrist for a review visit.
What happens during the test?
Your vision and focus will be measured, in order to provide an accurate glasses prescription
You will receive a comprehensive health assessment to check for eye diseases such as cataract, macular degeneration and glaucoma
Digital images of the front and back of your eyes will be recorded as a baseline reference for future comparison
We promise not to confuse you with jargon. Your results will be explained in clear and concise language, and we will prescribe glasses or contact lenses if necessary. You may also be recommended eye exercises or eye drops, or referral to an ophthalmologist if further treatment is indicated.
At the end of the consultation we’ll let you know when your next check-up is due. It’s about making things as simple and straightforward as possible.
Please note: Some eye examinations require the use of eyedrops to dilate the pupils, which may result in temporary blurry vision and light sensitivity. We advise against driving immediately after these examinations, and recommend the use of sunglasses and a hat for glare protection.
Review Eye Tests
You may require a ‘review eye test’ in the period between comprehensive eye tests. These tests take 20 – 30 minutes to complete and are designed to review specific issues that require regular monitoring, such as certain eye conditions or prescription updates.
