Ophthometry

We perform both optometry examinations and screenings in our institute. The optometric examination consists of the diagnosis and treatment of eyesight worsening, eye inflammations and other complaints related to vision. A thorough examination also provides useful information on the general condition of other illnesses.

Ophthometry

We perform both optometry examinations and screenings in our institute. The optometric examination consists of the diagnosis and treatment of eyesight worsening, eye inflammations and other complaints related to vision. A thorough examination also provides useful information on the general condition of other illnesses.

The aim of a general optometric screening is to reveal the presence of eye disorders that do not cause complaints in an early stage (for e.g. glaucoma), allowing starting their treatment in time. We also have a specific screening for AMD (age-related macular degeneration), a disease that is getting more and more common worldwide.

On recommendation from specialists of other fields (for e.g. internal medicine, neurology) we provide medical opinion on the condition of the eyeground in order to rule out certain diseases or to assess the efficiency of an ongoing treatment.

During various types of instrumental examination, eye refraction and visual acuity are tested, intraocular pressure is measured, eyeground condition is checked, and if necessary, binocular and color vision are also examined.

The most accurate method to measure intraocular pressure is applanation tonometry: it is a contact method, meaning that the surface of the eye is touched with a small tool. The examination does not cause any feeling of discomfort, as the anesthetic eye drops applied beforehand completely turn off pain sensation.

Optometric examinations are painless. However, photosensitive people might experience discomfort due to the harsh light examination devices emit. During the course of testing, pupil dilation by eye drops might be necessary, which causes a temporary worsening of eyesight and reading ability for a few hours (occasionally for a day). Thus, driving is not recommended until your pupils return to normal.
