The Abra & Co Eye Test: Our 12 Different Assessments & Evaluations

21 May 2024
Eye Testing

Our eyes are our windows to the world, and they deserve personalised care that goes above and beyond generic opticians’ services. Here at Abra & Co., our local opticians don’t perform routine eye tests. We provide a comprehensive experience that is uniquely tailored to your personal eye health and individual needs.

The Abra & Co. eye test includes 12 different assessments and evaluations to ensure we leave no stone unturned in helping you achieve optimal vision. But what is included in these 12 different assessments and evaluations, and what can they do for your sight?

Our 12 Assessments & Evaluations:

Eye Examination

1. Eyewear & Eye Health Discovery Phase:

Your journey with us begins with a discovery phase where we take the time to understand your lifestyle, preferences, and unique vision needs. We delve deep into what matters most to you to make sure that every aspect of your eye care experience is completely tailored to you and exactly what you’re looking for.

2. Assessing Condition of Current Eyewear:

Your current eyewear tells a story, and we’re here to listen. We carefully examine the condition of your glasses, from signs of wear and tear to lens type. This helps us ensure your eyewear is not only comfortable but is also performing at its best.

3. Pupils:

Our eyes are a reflection of our health, and the way your pupils function can reveal important insights. In this assessment, we examine the pupil reflex to detect any signs of nerve damage, offering early detection and prevention.

4. Vision Assessed for Distance and Near:

Clear vision is essential for navigating the world around us, and through monocular and binocular assessments, we uncover any issues that may affect your vision, setting the stage for further personalised tests.

5. Ocular Motility:

Healthy eye muscles are crucial for seamless vision. This part of our eye test involves the careful examination of the six eye muscles to make sure they’re working properly. This assessment can also help us address any abnormalities that may lea to discomfort or double vision.

6. Cover Test for Binocular Vision:

By assessing how well your eyes collaborate to provide a single, clear image, this test works to promote optimal binocular vision performance. Our eyes work best when they work together.

7. Refraction:

Finding the perfect prescription is both an art and a science. When you book an eye test with us, our refraction assessment involves the use of advanced techniques and modern equipment to precisely determine your prescription for the best possible vision clarity.

8. Duochrome Test:

The duochrome test is performed to make sure your new prescription distributes the visual effort evenly between your eyes to enhance comfort and clarity.

9. Cross Cylinder Test:

Astigmatism is a common vision issue that requires specialised care. We can perform the cross-cylinder test at your optician’s appointment to correct astigmatism and optimise your vision quality.

10. Slit Lamp Examination External Eye and Internal:

This assessment involves a thorough examination of the external and internal structures of your eyes, which can help to detect early signs of conditions such as glaucoma and diabetes. 

11. Dry Eye Assessment:

In today’s digital age, dry eye is a very common issue. In this assessment, we assess your tear film and ocular surface to effectively diagnose and manage dry eye.

12. Meibomian Gland Assessment:

Healthy eyelids are essential for preventing dry eye and maintaining optimal eye health. This assessment involves the evaluation of the function of your meibomian glands, addressing any issues that may compromise your eye comfort and health.
