Latest Technology We use as Opticians

We’ve got the latest technology to measure your visual fields while your intra ocular pressures – the pressures inside your eyeballs – are measured using a tonometer. This may seem scary but it’s actually very fast and completely painless. Both of these evaluations help pick up early signals of glaucoma and eye disease.
Specially for customers who are older or 40, the optometrist will check your intraocular pressures and visual fields.

The process of assessing whether your eye vision may be made better with glasses or contact lenses is referred to as refraction. This is the part you’ll tell the optometrist whether you’ll be able to see more clearly with or with no lens in front of your eye and be most comfortable with, where you look at an eye chart. We’ll show you what difference could be made to you vision with a new prescription, if it is needed.
