What is a sight test?
A chart for testing visual acuity, usually consisting of letters, numbers or pictures printed in lines of decreasing size that the patient will identify from a fixed distance. The optometrist will check the health of your eyes and look for signs of other medical conditions. They will ask you if you are experiencing any eye problems and about your general eye health and lifestyle. It is important to have a clear understanding of your needs so that we can select the best management plan and/or lenses for you.
