Comprehensive Eye Examination for Hong Kong Customers
Eyes are our windows to the world and Swisscoat optometric clinic in central provides professional comprehensive eye care examination to help safeguard your eyes. Comprehensive eye examination not only provides you with an in-depth understanding about your eyes, but also different eye care tips and professional advice. It includes:
Case History Taking
History taking is crucial for letting us understand your best interests. Detailed inquiries into chief complaints, daily habits, visual demand, personal general and ocular health history, medication and family health history will be made.
Vision and Refraction Assessment
Various visual acuity charts (including letters, numbers, E charts and pictures) which meet international standard are used to examine the vision of patients over a broad age range.Refractive error (including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia) are measured precisely by professional optometrists with the assistance of the latest refractive instrumentation. Amblyopia (Lazy eyes) can be picked up easily by careful vision and refraction assessment.
Binocular Vision Assessment
Assessing the binocular function (how well both eyes work together) can identify strabismus (squint) and even some of the rather serious ocular or systemic complications. Therefore, it is an indispensable part of the comprehensive eye exam.
Colour Vision Assessment
Ishihara and other colour vision tests are used to rule out any congenital or acquired colour vision deficiency. Appropriate counselling will be given accordingly.
Intra-ocular Pressure (Eye pressure measurement)
It is a preliminary assessment which aids in diagnosing glaucoma.
With the state of the art fundus camera, high definition retinal photos (including optic nerve head, macula, retinal blood vessels, etc.) are taken for the purposes of diagnosing retinal diseases and monitoring pathological changes.
Ocular Health Assessment
Thorough ocular health assessment on various eye structures such as cornea, crystalline lens and macula is performed with the use of advanced ophthalmic equipment. Peripheral retinal exam is performed with pupil dilation drops as a routine for most patients, while it is performed for children based on indication.
Diagnosis and Professional Advice
Our optometrists will analyse the eye examination results and provide you with appropriate recommendations based on your ocular conditions. A detailed eye examination report will also be given for your own record.
Swisscoat Vision Center and Primary Eye Care Clinic is equipped with a variety of advanced ophthalmic instruments. We recommend adults to undergo an eye exam at least once a year, and every 6 months for children.
