eye examination

Auckland Optometrists’ comprehensive and affordable eye examination

did you know…


Did you know that an eye examination can also reveal if you have other systemic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol?

Did you know that when you are short-sighted (myopia) and is over -4.00 diopters, you are at a higher risk of developing retinal detachment and glaucoma?

  1. Refraction
    Tells your optometrist exactly what prescription you need in your glasses or contact lenses.
  2. Keratometry
    Measures your corneal curvature to diagnose the presence and degree of astigmatism.
  3. Tonometry
    Measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure (IOP). This measurement can help your optometrist determine whether or not you may be at risk of glaucoma.
  4. Pachymetry
    Measures the thickness of your cornea — the clear window at the front of the eye. With this measurement, your doctor can better understand your IOP reading.

For $49, our comprehensive eye examination includes:

  • Complete eye history to determine concerns and risk factors
  • Assessment of your internal eye health, including retina, optic disc, and blood vessels
  • Slit-lamp assessment of your external eye including lids and lashes
  • Assessment of your colour perception
  • Examination to assess glaucoma including a measure of the pressure in each eye
  • Assessment of visual functions including any refractive error
  • Tests of your eye muscles to check that they move and coordinate properly
  • Assessment of pupils’ function and response
  • Discussion of the diagnosis
  • Discussion of the management options and plan for treatment.


Your optometrists will advise accordingly if further tests are required (additional costs will apply), such as:
1. Visual field test to check for blind spots caused by eye disease or brain damage (e.g. glaucoma or stroke).
2. Gonioscopy to check the anterior chambers for any risk of angle closure that can lead to angle-closure glaucoma.
3. A dilated fundus eye examination to dilate the pupils if you have a small pupils or if you have cataracts restricting a proper examination of the retinal health, or if you are very short-sighted* or are experiencing flashes and floaters to ensure you do not have a retinal detachment, which requires immediate attention as this can cause blindness.
4. Punctal dilation if you suffer from watery eyes (epiphora).
5. Punctal plugs to help retain tears in your eyes to help reduce the symptoms of dryness.
6. Driver Licence Certificate DL12.
7. Maritime Eyesight Certificate.
8. Red eyes due to infections or inflammation. Our senior optometrists are therapeutically qualified to write prescriptions for antibiotics and anti-inflammatory eye-drops.
