Why is eye screening important?
Eye screening enables early detection of potentially sight-threatening eye conditions.
Many eye conditions go unnoticed in their early stages. It may be too late for treatment when your vision becomes affected.
Early detection and timely treatment of these conditions can often prevent any permanent vision loss.
This is especially important if you have:
Take care of your eyes. Have your eyes checked today.
Things to take note:
What are these tests?
Air puff tonometry
Checks the eye pressure using a non-contact device for basic glaucoma screening.
Amsler grid test
Screens for abnormalities or distortion in the macular area responsible for central vision.
Measures the refractive power of your eyes using a computerised device.
Basic glaucoma screening test
Screens for obvious glaucoma changes using a series of investigative eye tests.
Measures the corneal thickness of your eyes using a computerised device.
Detects squints (misaligned eyes) which may cause amblyopia (lazy eyes).
Dry eye evaluation
Checks for the presence and the severity of dry eyes, a common eye condition in computer users, contact lens wearer, post-LASIK patients and elderly.
Heidelberg Retinal Tomography III scan
Three-dimensional imaging of the optic nerve head using an advanced computerised equipment.
Humphrey Visual Field
Detects visual field defects in advanced glaucoma using a computerised instrument.
Ishihara colour vision test
Checks for colour vision defects.
Ocular motility evaluation
Evaluates eye movement abnormalities associated with squints (misaligned eyes), nerve and muscle diseases.
Optical Coherence Tomography scan
Three-dimensional imaging of the retinal nerve fibre layers around the optic nerve head using an advanced computerised equipment.
Red reflex examination
Screens for abnormalities in the ocular media such as cataract and retinal diseases.
Tests the refractive power of your eyes for the prescription of spectacles. Refraction with cycloplegia is a similar test for young children whereby their ciliary muscles (eye muscles) are relaxed by eye drops to obtain a more accurate reading.
Retina & optic disc evaluation
A detailed examination of the back of your eyes to detect diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
Detects eye conditions affecting your optic nerve, macula and retina by assessing photographs of the back of your eyes.
Detects abnormalities such as corneal diseases and cataract by performing a detailed bio-microscopic examination of the front part of your eyes.
Measures the ability to perceive depth and visualise objects 3-dimensionally (stereo vision). Stereo vision may be abnormal in certain eye conditions such as squints (misaligned eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eyes).
Tests for distance vision using a Snellen chart or Sheridan-Gardiner cards (for children) and near vision using an N-notation near test chart.
