General Eye Screening

General Eye Test

Some eye disorders may develop without any symptoms. A classic example is glaucoma. This condition causes optic nerve damage silently and is one of the leading causes of blindness. Patients are unaware as the initial visual loss occurs in the peripheral visual field. If detected late, the visual field loss cannot be reversed. It is therefore important to have your eyes screened.

There is no universal agreement on how frequent one should go for eye screening. By and large, it would be logical to have an eye screening done at 40 years of age and to have this repeated every 1-3 years, depending on the findings of the screening.

Common conditions that can be picked up during eye screening include: dry eye disease, meibomian gland disease, cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.
