Getting an eye exam can allow someone to assess the risk for developing vision-related health problems. In some health conditions, vision problems are not the primary symptoms, but can be a red flag for something else going on. Getting your eyes checked is just good medicine regardless of your age or if you have any special medical concerns.
Read this leaflet for more information on what to expect during your first appointment with our Hong Kong optometrist.
An eye examination is a medical assessment to detect vision disorders. Specialised techniques and instruments are used to examine the various functions of your eyes to ensure optimal performance and health. We are qualified to prescribe and supply glasses and contact lenses to improve your vision. Vision screening is a series of tests to identify if an individual has a problem seeing. These tests can be set up in schools or public buildings to test if a child can see while at school or allow someone to get a driver’s license to operate motor vehicles.
Does your child have difficulty seeing words when reading or do they mistake objects when they are further away? If so, they may need glasses. If you’re not sure, it never hurts to have an eye exam!

Retinal screening using optical coherence technology (OCT) provides a window into your general health. After 40, it’s recommended to get a baseline screen for future reference and diagnosis of pathologies which could lead to blindness.
In this leaflet Dr. Thai explains more about the importance of retinal screening.
A 20/20 eyesight test won’t tell you everything about your child’s vision. Some signs that there might be a vision problem include headaches, abnormal posture, loss-of-place when reading, and avoiding close-up work.
Dr. Thai explains more about children’s vision and signs that your child should have an eye examination in this leaflet.
