We allow up to 45 minutes for a sight test and eye examination. There are many elements in a sight test, which are tailored to suit the individual. We always start the sight test by finding out about you. Do you have a family history of glaucoma or diabetes? What medication you are taking? Some medications can affect the eyes. What are you visual needs? Do you use a PC? Do you play any specific sports? Do you drive? Are you having any problems with your vision? Any headaches?
