Comprehensive Eye Exam

The role of an optometrist has changed over many decades and continues to do so. Not all eye examinations are the same, and our consultations involve much more than just the prescribing of spectacles or the fitting of contact lenses.

Some of our optometrists are therapeutically endorsed, legally permitted to write prescriptions for eye drops, giving surety that your eyes are in safe hands for their vision and health needs.

Our number one priority is you the patient. We are ‘service oriented’ not ‘volume oriented’ and our optometrists will explain your eye conditions in detail, all your treatment options and answer any questions you may have. It’s first class eye-care with a friendly face.

At Central Coast Eyecare, we take very seriously our vital role in the early detection of eye conditions and diseases such as changes to vision, cataract, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. We use state-of-the-art equipment and focus on providing you with high quality optometric expertise and advice on eyecare to preserve and best enhance your vision.

Cutting edge technologies enable us to detect eye conditions at the earliest possible opportunity; this is all directed to achieving a better outcome for you, the patient. So, whatever your concern, be it glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataract or otherwise, you can be assured you will be well looked after.

What to expect

As eye care professionals we take full responsibility for determining what the appropriate procedures are for best looking after your eyes. We don’t believe in offering or performing inferior or “basic” eye exams by cutting out procedures that are important for detecting eye disease as early as possible. And on the other side of the coin, we will not perform procedures that are not necessary for your proper care. Your initial consultation and in many cases your subsequent consultations will include the following procedures:

Registration
here our staff will check personal details that will enable us to best look after you.

 Comprehensive history taking
conducting a proper case history is central to understanding your vision needs, and this can only be achieved by taking the time to listen and discuss your issues with you.

 Assessment of vision and your prescription
clearly an essential and basic part of your eye examination, and again this needs to be performed without undue haste to ensure your prescription is accurately determined.

 Reviewing your existing eyewear
(if any) and, in light of the vision and prescription results, determining after further discussion with you whether or not new eyewear is required.

 Determine your eyewear needs
where we discuss the circumstances in which you need to wear prescription lenses and whether some activities need specific eyewear.

 Most importantly
reviewing the health of your eyes both inside and out, to detect diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal disease related to systemic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.

Due to increasing relevance
screening procedures for ocular surface and dry eye disease are advised.
