Discuss your needs – covering any problems you may be having, for how long and how any changes to your vision have taken place.

Review your medical history – both visual and other medical history.

Examine your eyes – both internally and externally to establish the general health of your eyes and identify any underlying problems.

Assess your vision – measurements will be taken when you are not wearing any spectacles or contact lenses to establish if any vision correction is required.

Measure your eye movement and co-ordination – to ensure your eyes are working together.

Discuss your lifestyle – additional information regarding your work and leisure activities will help us to make an accurate assessment of your needs.
