Eye Test in Weybridge and the Surrounding Surrey Area
Graham Johnson Optician Ltd provides innovative eye tests for Esher, Cobham and Weybridge clients as an independent team of opticians committed to the latest industry procedures and treatments. Our fully-equipped practice in Hersham offers free eye examinations and treatments under current NHS entitlements, but also provides eye tests by appointment at the request of private patients from the surrounding Surrey area.
We tailor our eye tests around the needs of each individual situation, and deliver a final, professional evaluation of your visual requirements to include the following components:
History and Symptoms – Prior to undertaking eye examinations for our Cobham, Esher and Weybridge clients, Graham Johnson Optician Ltd discusses any ongoing problems they may be experiencing with their eyesight. An eye doctor, or optometrist, also talks about general health because some eye conditions may relate to current medical treatments or personal lifestyle choices. Our experts also appraise the work our clients do and their recreational activities to build a picture of their visual impairments and requirements.
A Full Eyewear Assessment – The next phase of our eye tests determines the current use of spectacles and contact lenses. Our opticians make an accurate assessment based on your current visual aids and your symptoms, and determine whether the treatments used are exactly right for you. Assessments take place at our practice in Hersham, where we extend a warm welcome to new and existing patients in quiet, comfortable surroundings.
Refraction – Eye examinations include refraction testing to determine whether optical lenses will be suitable for correcting your current symptoms. Our eye tests include near-vision examinations for reading, distance-vision examinations for driving or watching television, and intermediate examinations to assess the suitability of optical lenses for work or computer use. Our opticians, eye doctors and optometrists cover all bases and give our Cobham, Esher and Weybridge clients a complete evaluation on current eye condition.
Oculomotor Balance – Oculomotor balance testing provides a thorough examination of the eye muscles to ensure they are coordinated, and that vision is comfortable over any distance. Oculomotor balancing is also used by opticians to check the condition of nerves relating to the eye, and makes up part of all eye examinations at our practice in Hersham.
Pupil Reflex – During our eye examinations, an irregular pupil reflex may be an indication of neurological issues so our opticians, eye doctors and optometrists must ensure the eyes of our Cobham, Esher, Weybridge and Surrey patients react normally when subjected to light.
Intraocular Pressure – An excessive pressure inside the eyes located during tests may be indicative of glaucoma, an abnormality that could result in blindness if left unattended. Under most circumstances, these eye examinations, which also check the retina, are only administered on the over 40s or on patients with a history of glaucoma in their families.
Visual Field Testing – Another symptom that suggests the presence of glaucoma is a deterioration within the field of vision. During eye examinations, opticians and optometrists analyse the all-round vision of our Cobham, Esher and Weybridge clients, in addition to checking their peripheral eyesight performance and their intraocular pressures.
Opthalmoscopy – Opthalmoscopy is a vital part of our eye tests, and evaluates the overall health of your eyes to determine conditions including diabetes, cataracts and hypertension. We safely and accurately monitor all of these conditions during our eye examinations.
Explanation – The final part of all eye tests is for our opticians to provide a clear, concise explanation of your vision and your overall eye health. Graham Johnson Optician Ltd also provides a detailed optical prescription for your consideration. We have our own optical goods retail department, and can help our Cobham, Esher, Weybridge and Surrey patients to choose from a full range of traditional spectacles, designer frames and contact lenses.
