Eye Care and Vision

The Eye

Vision is the most important of human senses and it is essential to look after your eyes. As the diagram shows, the eye is a complicated organ. Your Optometrist and Optical Dispenser can help you better understand how your eyes work. Visual errors are mostly caused by out of focus light reaching the retina. Many people report this as difficulty seeing close up, far away or a combination of the both.

Eye Health

Optometrists are a primary eye health care provider, professionally trained to assess and advise on vision and eye health. Eyes and vision can be easily affected by a person's general health, so it is important to have an eye examination once every two years or annually if you wear contact lenses.

Some of the more common eye health issues that are assessed and prescribed for are:

  • Blurry vision
  • Short sightedness
  • Long sightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Diabetes effects on the eyes
  • Cataract
  • Glaucoma
  • Floaters
  • Flashing vision
  • Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD)
  • Keratoconus (Corneal disease)

Following an examination our optometrists may refer you to an Ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) or another health care provider for extended or specialised care if required.
