Most would get a pair of spectacles or lenses with a general prescription of the degree of nearsightedness or farsightedness when the vision blur. However, a thorough and detailed examination by a qualified eye-care professional is uttermost important because it provides an insight on the real conditions of the eyes, yet is often missed out as most do not realize its importance.

At Eye & Glasses Optometrist, Vantage Point, Jelutong, the optometrist here gives a different level of care to the health of pair of eyes, the windows of soul. Focus is not solely on getting a pair of glasses but also the overall conditions of the eyes.

A peculiar experience at Eye & Glasses Optometrist, Jelutong

When we were invited to a visit to Eye & Glasses Optometrist, we thought it will be another usual eye check, then get a prescription of spectacles, followed by choosing a fashionable frame. 

However, we only had ourselves to be blamed for our shallow thinking. The experience here turned out to be a peculiar one, way exceeding our expectations. Not only we have been provided a complete eye examination (13 different tests), there were also consultation regarding the right eye wears and its specifications based on job needs, the suitable lenses to be prescribed, and the exposure to the much-lacking eye care.

All this would not be possible without the owner cum registered optometrist with Malaysian Optical Council, Miss Mary Chong (MOC Registration No. 0-01311), whom graduated from UK Cardiff with a Bachelor of Science in Optometry, and a Fellow of British Dispensing Opticians (UK).


Comprehensive Eyes Examination

Eye & Glasses Optometrist provides a complete eyes examination. All the while we thought eyes examination were just checking for degree but today we were astonished by the package that consists of 13 different tests it offers:
  • Visual Acuity (To measure how much one can see for both distance and near)
  • Color Vision Test (This test consists of different pseudoisochromatic plates; it is possible to check if one is suffering from some form of red-green colour deficiency)
  • Stereopsis Test (To measure ability to distinguish depth that usually happened if both eyes are properly functioning)
  • Refraction (This is what normally being tested before making a new glasses; it is to find out the manifest refractive error)
  • External Ocular Muscle Assessment (To examines the function of eye muscles)
  • Corneal Keeratometry (To measure corneal curvature)
  • Intraocular Pressure Measurement (Intraocular pressure is an important aspect in evaluating the risk of glaucoma)
  • Anterior Eyes Assessment (Eyelid, lacrimal system, conjunctiva, cornea, pupils and anterior chamber will be checked for any abnormalities)
  • Crystalline Lens Assessment (To detect opacity in crystalline lens - cataract)
  • Dry Eyes Assessment (To measure tear quantity and quality to see if one is suffering from dry eyes problems)
  • Fundus Assessment (To view the eye's interior, allowing assessment of the retina and optic nerve head)
  • Blood Pressure (To measure blood pressure during eye test is important because untreated high blood pressure will also affect eyesight)
  • Blood Glucose Test (To give a clue about glucose level and to detect diabetes earlier)

To get the facts right, attending to an optometrist is not limited to getting a prescription to a pair of spectacles to fix nearsightedness or farsightedness. These comprehensive tests will also allow the optometrist to detect any potential adverse conditions of the eyes such as glaucoma or cataract. In case the conditions needs such attention, the optometrist will refer one to a medical practitioner, in this case an ophthalmologist for further management.

At this modern era with the robust development of technology, a pair of lenses serve more than its regular function to correct the eyesight. Take an example, sometimes the eyes will feel fatigue after long hours starring at the monitor during works or playing games with smartphones.

Therefore, lenses are now configured differently to filter out UV light, or blue light from the LED screen from smartphones and monitors. 

On top of that, there are multifocal lenses customized for different lifestyles. Some are meant for daily usage such as reading for a close-eye look, then there are some specialized multifocal lenses for professionals that require extreme dexterity in working such as surgeons, dentists or architects. All these can be customized in Eyes & Glasses Optometrist.

Contact Lenses Myth - Just choosing the right power only? 

Contact Lenses Myth is now debunked here. When getting a pair of contact lenses, is it supposed to choose the right power of contact lenses only?

According to Miss Mary Chong, a right pair of contact lense will need to be customized based on eyes curvature to provide the best and comfortable wear. The optometrist will recommend certain suitable brands which suit the needs after running the necessary measurements. Thus, do not be be assumptive when making choices of contact lenses.
