At Zacks Eye Clinic in central London W1 we advise that regular eye sight tests are a vital part of any health care program.
Eye sight tests are essential to ensure normal visual development in children and for the early detection of conditions affecting the eyes and general health. Every patient is given a very thorough eye sight test, including scans of the eyes and retinal photographs which takes at least half an hour. Further appointments may be required for additional scans or specialist examinations.

Eye Sight Disorders:
Eye Sight Test Explained
At the first appointment, we aim to gather as much information as possible regarding ocular history, general health and family history. Details of previous prescriptions for glasses, contact lenses and medication are also extremely valuable along with information regarding lifestyle and specific optical requirements.
The Eyes are examined internally and externally for signs of abnormality or disease and the spectacle prescription is carefully measured using a combination of modern scans and old fashioned refraction techniques to give the best possible visual correction for distance, reading and other individual requirements such as computer screen distance. Additional tests to assess binocular vision, accommodation, intra-ocular pressure, visual fields are performed as necessary.
After The Eye Sight Test
After the eye sight test advice is given on the most suitable visual correction. Occasionally a second appointment is required for further tests, scans or specialist examinations and if necessary we will liase with a patient’s doctors and specialists.
