Purpose of a routine eye examination
For patients with no risk factors for significant eye disease, routine eye examinations will involve asking questions about:
- The clarity of your vision
- Whether you currently or have ever worn spectacles or contact lenses and
- When you have had problems with your eyes in the past
- Your general health and any family history of eye problems.
It is also important to know about what activities you take part in day to day, especially how much computer / tablet / phone work you do and any hobbies or sports you might be involved in.
