EYE EXAMINATION

A thorough and comprehensive eye examination with a comfortable and relaxing experience.

ABOUT THE EXAMINATION

The eye examination at Mallon+Taub is a relaxing and comfortable experience, and it usually lasts 45 minutes. We use the most sophisticated, state of the art optical equipment that helps us provide a thorough and comprehensive eye examination.

During the eye examination our optometrist will assess your vision and overall health of your eyes. We will screen for conditions such as cataract, blepharitis and dry eyes, diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration. We will test your intraocular pressures and use a Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer for the visual field analysis.

RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY

We will take a retinal image using our Optomap Retinal Imaging System. The system can produce an instant, ultra-wide field digital image of the back of the eye (right image).

OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)

OCT is a non-invasive imaging technology used to obtain high resolution, cross sectional images of the retina.

OCT is similar to ultrasound, as the layers beneath the surface of the retina are visible, this allows for the earlier detection of eye conditions like Glaucoma and Macular degeneration.

If the OCT scan is reccomended, this will be discussed by the Optometrist conducting the eye exam.

CARE AND ATTENTION

At the end of the examination we will explain the results of the tests carried out and determine whether you need prescription spectacles or not. Should you require them, we will recommend the correct type of spectacles for you, whether you are shortsighted, long-sighted, astigmatic or presbyopic.

We will also advise on the best ophthalmic lenses for you, recommend a spectacles frame that is appropriate for your visual and, of course, aesthetic requirements. Naturally, we will ensure that during your eye examination you are treated with the highest degree of care and attention.
