The first examination
When you first come to us, the examination will begin shortly after the time fixed for your appointment. The first step will be to assess the state of your eyesight, and, in the event of eyeglasses being required, how strong they should be. As a precaution, we also measure the intraocular pressure of all patients over the age of 40.
If you have come to us as a result of a deterioration in your eyesight, it may be necessary to dilate your pupils with eye-drops. Once the examination is over, we will talk the findings over with you, establish the course of action to be followed and fix appointments.N.B.
A first examination in all take a good hour to complete and none of the procedures causes any pain. If it has been necessary to dilate your pupils, then you are recommended not to participate in road traffic afterwards your pupils will still be dilated and you could very easily be dazzled by bright light. Please bring a pair of sunglasses with you in any case, to protect your eyes after the examination.
