Regular eye examinations ensure comfortable vision and early detection and control of eye disease. Sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma, cataract and vascular disorders are routinely detected in the eye examination. Our retinal imaging system gives a detailed record of the condition of the retina which helps in the early detection of diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration among others.
The new generation automated perimeters give a rapid and reliable evaluation of visual fields which helps to diagnose ocular disorders such as glaucoma, retinal disease and even neurological disorders.
Eye examinations are recommended generally every 2 years, but annually up to mid-teens and adults where there is a family history of eye disease. Extensive eyecare information is available at www.optometryireland.ie.
