Yes.  Visual examinations look at the clarity of vision and screen for eye diseases that can be asymptomatic.  Eye strain is a common symptom for people working on screens all day and often visual intervention can relieve the eye strain and tiredness.

The examination will take approximately 30 -45 min and 45 – 60 min for children.  The optometrist will ask you questions regarding  your medical and ocular history and you can explain your visual needs to them.  The visual examination does not hurt and you will be asked to look at lights, small objects, letters or picture charts and into optometric machinery.

The aim of visual screening is to identify patients that need to be referred for a comprehensive visual examination. A visual screening is not an optometric eye examination and during the visual screening the optometrist do limited investigations regarding eye movements, colour vision, basic eye health and possible prescriptions to identify possible vision problems.
