What is an eye checkup? Our checkups are personalized since each person is unique and needs are unique. In general, during an eye checkup, we will take a bit of your history including any complaints or if you have other illnesses or on medications. You will then be asked to read some letters or numbers to get to know how good (or bad) your vision is. Thereafter we will look into your eyes with several machines depending on the findings. If need be, you will be asked to do some tests before treatment can be prescribed.
How long will a complete checkup take? A full eye checkup takes between 20 to 40 minute
