Our professional optometrists do all they can to make your eye test an enjoyable experience. An eye test at Albany Optometrists takes an average of an hour – this ensures you have time to talk about your specific eye care needs. The entire eye test is conducted by the optometrist – so you can be sure that your eyes will be in safe hands.
Diagnosing Eye Conditions
Eye testing can quickly and simply diagnose common eye conditions such as myopia (short-sightedness) hyperopia (long-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia. We can also diagnose eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Early detection and treatment of these sight-threatening diseases is of the upmost importance. Many general health concerns such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes can also be detected during a thorough eye test.
We are committed to providing the best technology available to ensure an accurate and thorough diagnosis. Our Digital Retinal Imaging enables us to take pictures of the inside of your eyes to assess eye health. Retinal photos are essential for keeping a regular picture of any changes over time that may affect vision and eye health. We have two visual field machines to assess peripheral vision. In addition, we have a topographer to map the surface of the cornea, and an auto-refractor.
In addition to general eye testing our practice also offers Behavioural Optometry assessments and testing for Irlen Syndrome. In conjunction with this we also offer specialised contact lens treatments such as Orthokeratology and treatment for keratoconus.
