Components of a Complete Eye Checkup

  • Visual Acuity Testing: This standard eye exam assesses your vision performance at different distances. The perfect vision is 6/6 or 20/20. This exam also aids in the diagnosis of conditions such as astigmatism, near-sightedness, farsightedness, and amblyopia (lazy eye).
  • Refraction Assessment: A refraction examination determines corrective lens prescriptions, ensuring that you receive an accurate and customized prescription that caters to your specific vision requirements.
  • Eye Health Evaluation: Prioritizing both vision and eye health, Atlantic Optical conducts a thorough examination of internal and external eye structures, helping to identify potential abnormalities like cataracts, glaucoma, retinal problems, keratoconus, colour vision deficiency as well as contact lens wear complication.
  • Eye Movement and Alignment: Evaluating eye movement and binocular vision is crucial for detecting disorders like amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (squints) near accommodation insufficiency etc, ensuring that your eyes function well for optimal vision.
