How often should I get my eyes examined?
We recommend that you have a comprehensive eye examination every one to two years, depending on your age, risk factors and whether you currently wear corrective lenses. Contact lens wearers should have yearly eye examinations. Regular eye examinations can do more than help you see better. They can identify issues of early on-set blindness, glaucoma and even certain kinds of cancer.
How long does it take to have an eye examination?
An eye examination usually takes about 30-40 minutes. If you're planning to pick out glasses on the same day though, give yourself a bit more time. You don't want to rush while picking out your new look!
What should I bring with me to my eye examination?
A list of any medications you are currently taking. Bring all pairs of spectacles you normally wear. If you wear contact lenses, please wear these to the appointment and bring a copy of our most recent contact lens prescription if possible. If applicable, bring medical insurance details (like Southern Cross) if you are seeking insurance coverage for a portion of your fees. Finally, bring your questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with your Optometrist.
