Any problem with vision or the eye that may include:
An ophthalmologist will take a focussed history asking questions about your eye problem, how it developed and how it affects you.
The ophthalmologist will examine your eye thoroughly. This generally begins by checking your visual acuity - how well you can read letters off a chart at a distance of 6 metres. They may then use a slit lamp to examine the front of your eye - the cornea, anterior chamber and then lens before looking into the back of your eye to examine the blood vessels and retina there. You are likely to require drops that dilate the pupil (make it bigger). These may make things seem a bit bright and blurry but it usually settles fairly soon. Ophthalmological examination may also include a number of other parts to the examination that are tailored to the individual presentation.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
