The Importance of an eye examination

In association with Oranmore Optometrists

Eye examinations are not just about assessing vision to determine if one requires spectacles. By examining the eyes thoroughly, Optometrists can detect serious conditions at an early stage. This means that any issues raised are more promptly managed and treated, thus reducing the risk to ones eye sight.

Oranmore Optometrists provide the very best in eye care. We carry out an eye examination that will assess your vision requirements including spectacles and contact lenses, but most importantly we determine the general health of your eyes.

At Oranmore Optometrists one can also avail of 3D Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT ). This technology takes both a digital photograph and a 3 dimensional cross section scan of the back of the eye. This means we can literally look beneath the surface of the retina in advanced detail. This is critical for the early detection and treatment of ocular conditions. It is a non invasive and painless scan. We highly recommend everyone to avail of an OCT scan to help safeguard their eye health. An additional fee applies to this scan but the benefits to your eyes and health are enormous.
