Are You Experiencing These Eye Problems?
THESE SYMPTOMS MAY BE SIGNS OF
UNDERLYING EYE CONDITIONS
THESE SYMPTOMS MAY BE SIGNS OF UNDERLYING EYE CONDITIONS
Glaucoma, eye infections, cataract, macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachments, bleeding in the eye, inflammatory eye disease or diseases affecting the muscles and nerves of the eyeball.
Some of these may need acute and urgent medical care, as they may be sight-threatening if evaluation and treatment is delayed. Others may still warrant an evaluation as they can progress in the longer-term and affect your sight.
During your consultation with an ophthalmologist, one or more of the following clinical assessments will be done:
|1. Visual acuity test
This involves getting you to read letters on a testing chart.
|2. Measurement of pressure within your eye
This may be tested either by an air puff, involving a small gust of air directed transiently on the eyeball for a fraction of a second, or a contact measurement technique using a device placed on the eye for 1 or 2 seconds.
|3. Measurement of the refractive status of your eye
It allows us to determine if your vision would be further improved with a spectacle prescription.
|4. Slit-lamp examination
Here your eye doctor will systematically examine your eyelids and eye lashes, conjunctiva and cornea, look for signs of allergy or inflammatory eye disease, and determine if you have cataracts.
|5. Dilated examination of the back section of your eye
After dilating eye drops are instilled into your eye, the ophthalmologist uses a special lens to examine the structures at the back of your eye, i.e. the optic disc, the retina, and the vitreous gel.
|6. Pupil assessment
This assessment evaluates for abnormalities in the brain-nerve-eye connective pathways.
|7. Eye movement and alignment testing
This test determines if there are problems in the eye muscles and nerves which control eye movement.
Further tests may be performed depending on your presenting symptoms and the initial assessments conducted by our eye specialist. Your ophthalmologist will then meticulously go through your test results with you and explain the treatment plan.
