For millions of Australians, fear of losing sight and eye disease is the worst of health concerns.
However, many of us still fail to be responsive to the eye diseases, eye problems and factors that can potentially damage their eyesight, causing vision problems, eye disorders and eye disease delaying to take appropriate steps to restore (if not improve) their vision.
What will a comprehensive eye examination involve? How is it different to a general check by a GP?
General practitioners, child care nurses and paediatricians do not perform eye examinations but sometimes conduct “vision screenings” which are a basic test looking for a difference in vision between the two eyes. Unfortunately vision screenings fail to detect a large number of eye problems that are readily detected in a comprehensive eye examination performed by the optometrist, and screenings do not check at all for any eye health issues.
