An eye test not only checks your ability to see well, it also checks for all kinds of eye diseases and is an invaluable part of an overall health assessment. Elite opticians have invested in state-of-the-art retinal cameras, visual field equipment, and digital slit lamp microscopes to enable them to screen for Glaucoma, Diabetes, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Cataract, Dry Eyes, plus many more eye conditions. Digital retinal camera takes a photo of the back of the eye (the retina) and this is stored on computer so we can monitor for changes with every eye test you have.
