More Information On Our Eye Exams

  • A comprehensive eye test - vision assessment, determination of spectacle prescription, internal and external eye disease assessment, assessment of depth perception, colour vision, eye muscle co-ordination, pupil function and eye pressure. At the conclusion of the exam we'll explain the options for improving your vision and whether there are any signs of eye disease. We'll also discuss how soon you should have your eyes re-examined.
Woman Putting On Contact Lenses
  • Contact lens fitting - determining the characteristics of the contact lens that will meet your needs, including the size, shape, power, material, colour, and wearing schedule.
  • Contact lens aftercare- progress checks for new contact lens wearers We assess vision, comfort, eye health, lens fit and lens condition. We monitor lens cleaning and disinfection regimes and discuss care products and eye drops.
  • Short consultations - to remove foreign bodies, treat red eyes or eye infections, syringe your tear ducts, assess sudden new developments with your vision, sort out a vision certificate for your drivers licence, find lost contact lenses and so on.
  • Retinal photography - providing a digital photographic record of the inside of your eye for future reference.
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) - the latest technology in eye disease detection. The OCT uses light waves to scan the retina and optic nerve and provides a very detailed assessment of structure and function. 
  • Visual field exams - assessment of your peripheral visual function - helpful for diagnosing glaucoma, and other eye disease.
  • Civil aviation exams - dedicated exams for pilots. Richard is an accredited CAA examiner.
  • Dilated retinal exams - eye drops are used to make your pupils larger, allowing a more detailed inspection of the inside of of your eye.
  • Low Vision Assessments - when your vision can't be improved with glasses or contact lenses, low vision aids such as magnifiers, telescopes or digital equipment may help. This is Natalie's specialist area.

At the end of your consultation, you'll get a recommendation from  the optometrist (Anne, Natalie or Richard) for a course of action. This could include glasses or contact lenses, eye drops, eye exercises, a visit to a medical doctor or specialist or just an instruction to go home and stop worrying.

All our optometrists are members of the New Zealand Association of Optometrists.
