Eye Examinations

Eye Examinations in the London practice

At Zacks Eye Clinic in central London W1 we recommend that regular eye examinations are a vital part of any health care programme. They are essential to ensure normal visual development in children and for the early detection of conditions affecting the eyes and general health.  We provide specialist eye examinations, specialist contact lens fitting, a corporate scheme for local London based companies and screening tests using the latest imaging technology for diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Same day appointments are usually available for patients who need to be seen urgently.

The Eye Examinations

Every new patient is given a full eye examination which takes approximately half an hour. The spectacle prescription is ascertained by different objective and subjective methods and the eyes are examined externally and internally for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal detachments. Retinal photographs and OCT scans are stored for comparison on future visits. The effects of conditions such as diabetes and raised blood pressure can be detected and monitored with our imaging systems.  Additional tests for binocular vision, intra-ocular pressures, visual field analysis and colour vision are performed when necessary.
