Standard Comprehensive Eye Examinations

A standard comprehensive eye exam usually takes up to 45 minutes. This includes a measurement of your vision and eyesight prescription and a thorough assessment of the overall health of your eyes.

For those aged 60+, we recommend booking in for a dilated eye examination which can take up to 1 hour. With a dilated exam, your optometrist will instil special eye drops that make your pupils temporarily larger, and by doing so, will mean they have a clearer view to check the back of the eyes and their health more thoroughly. The drops can blur the vision a little for 1-2 hours.

If required, your optometrist may advise further testing either on the same day or at an additional appointment. Extra testing may include retinal photography, OCT scans, corneal topography or a visual field test. These tests may have an additional charge.
