An eye examination is a series of tests performed by a qualified optometrist assessing vision and ability to focus on objects, as well as diagnostic examinations with regards to the eyes.
Everyone should have regular eye examination as part of routine care by the optometrists, especially since many eye diseases asymptomatic.
Early detection during eye examination like blinding eye diseases and ocular manifestations due to systemic disease, tumours or other brain anomalies can often be treated.
Adults who wear prescription glasses or contact lenses should have a test every one to two years. Those who are not experiencing vision problems should do it every three to five years.
Individuals who have diabetes should have an eye examination every year. Diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are associated and they are at a higher risk for blindness.
Individuals over 40 or those with a family history of glaucoma should also have a test every year. Regular monitoring will help us to screen for glaucoma and other eye conditions associated with aging, and if possible, treat them early.
An eye test is a vital health check for your eyes. Every adult needs an eye test every two years, and some people may be advised to have a test more often.
During the eye test the optometrist checks if you need glasses, but they do much more than that too. When you have your eyes examined, the optometrist checks for eye diseases like glaucoma that you might not be aware that you are developing. They can also see signs of conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes when they check the eye.
Many of these conditions are treatable, but it is best to get them detected before they start causing problems. An eye test can save your sight, and help you stay healthy too.

Glaucoma is a complicated disease where damage to the optic nerve leads to gradual, irreversible vision loss. It is the second leading cause of blindness. Glaucoma can be associated with an increase in the fluid pressure (Intraocular Pressure or IOP) inside the eye and result in vision loss due to progressive damage to the optic nerve and loss of fibres.
Age: People over age 60 are at increased risk
Race: Asian are more prone to develop angle-closure glaucoma
Family history of glaucoma
Medical conditions: diabetes and hypertension
Corticosteroid use: prolong use can put some individuals at risk of secondary glaucoma
In addition, individuals with high eye pressure may have a significant risk factor. Whereas individual with elevated IOP is referred to as a glaucoma suspect, as the increments in eye pressure might lead to glaucoma.
Glaucomatous vision loss is permanent, but with early detection, prompt treatment and regular monitoring, can help control glaucoma and reduce the chances of vision loss.
Everyone’s eyes are filled with fluid, known as aqueous humour. This fluid helps keep your eyeball in shape and circulates through a tiny meshwork round the edge of your iris. In some people the pressure of the fluid is raised and damages the optic nerve, which carries messages from your eye to your brain. In other people, although the pressure is not raised, there may be a weakness which causes similar nerve damage. In many people it can be a combination of nerve weakness and raised pressure which predisposes them to glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be treated. There are various different drugs – mainly eye drops – that can help you. However, if your sight has been damaged there is not yet a treatment that can regain your lost vision. Treatment can only protect the vision that you have.
Here at Eyes Fusion Optometrists, we are able to perform a comprehensive eye exam to monitor your ocular health and intraocular pressure readings for early evaluation and detection.
