If you want a comprehensive eye examination and prefer to see the same optometrist every time your eyes are examined - then talk to us. We do not measure our success in number of glasses sold. At Glenfield Optometrists you will be treated as a valued client - not just another customer. We are totally New Zealand owned and operated. Before we make any decision together we listen carefully to your needs.
Examinations and screenings
We recommend that you have your eyes examined at least every two years, or more frequently if advised. Each examination takes around 45 minutes and you will be left with a thorough assessment of your eyesight, explained in straightforward language. Should glasses be recommended, you can take your time choosing a new style or we are happy to use your own frame.
- Comprehensive eye
examinations- and good medicine takes time !
- Dilated pupil examinations
- Dilation, or opening of the pupil of the eye, helps see inside the eye when pupils are too small, as normally happens with ageing . It is painless, and the pupil returns to its normal size in a few hours. Dilation is always optional. We recommend this is done on adults over about 50 years of age and occasionally younger.
- Digital retinal photography
Our digital retinal camera allows for detailed inspection of the back of your eyes, detecting subtle changes and early signs of eye conditions, and possibly general health concerns . Repeated photography allows us to compare new photos against old to estimate the speed of changes over time.
- Computerised visual fields-
an especially useful tool in glaucoma and for unexplained headaches.
- Glaucoma, macular degeneration
- Diabetic eye disease
and hypertension screening.
We can also arrange further assessment with an Ophthalmologist (eye doctor) if needed.
