While there is no substitute for the skill and experience of our Optometrists, modern technology has greatly enhanced the humble eye test. At Adrenaline Optometry we have invested in the latest technology in order to provide outstanding results. Our Optometrists use wavefront aberrometry, a device that takes a digital fingerprint of your eyeball to improve the accuracy of our prescriptions.
Your exam is controlled by your Optometrist using sophisticated equipment, so you don't have to worry about giving the wrong answer when we are determining your prescription. This process is different to a traditional eye test where lenses are flipped manually by the Optometrist and helps us get your glasses right the first time around!
Your ocular health exam will also include digital imaging which assists in the detection of conditions such as Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. We know your eyecare standards are high and we do not cut any corners. Your exam will never be rushed.
A comprehensive eye exam is recommended every 1-2 years in healthy individuals. People with diabetes, hypertension and other chronic issues should have an eye exam annually.
Children should be tested at the age of 4 and again at commencement of kindergarten, primary school and high school.

We assess how good your natural vision is and whether there is any need for glasses at all.
Your ocular surface is carefully examined in the order of lids, lashes, cornea, conjunctiva, anterior chamber, iris, crystalline lens. We look for any sun damage or changes such as Pterygium (surfer's eye), cataracts, dry eye, skin cancers, inflammation or infection.
Then your posterior eye is examined with a bright light where we check your: macula, optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, peripheral retina. Here we check for glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease or hypertensive eye disease.
We take a digital fingerprint of your eye, then use that data as a starting point to meticulously determine which prescription gives you the clearest and most comfortable vision.
In children we sometimes need to instill eye drops which relax their eye muscles in order to obtain an accurate prescription.
You are given the opportunity to trial your prescription in a mock frame so that you can make sure it feels clear and comfortable. This is a crucial step which is sometimes skipped in busy corporate optometry clinics.
We take scans of your macula, optic nerve and retina to aid in diagnosis and comparison for the future. Some eye conditions are extremely subtle and slow to show up, so the best way to diagnose them is by comparing scans over the years. That is why it is important to find an Optometrist that you trust and stick with them over time.
If there are any suspicious or interesting features on your ocular surface, we will also take scans of these.
We use the gentlest machine available in the world to take your eye pressure. No more puffs of air or numbing liquid necessary. This is an important test to screen for glaucoma. Based on your results so far, you may also be asked to do a computerised Glaucoma test known as a Visual Field.
Your Optometrist will summarise their findings and answer all of your questions. If needed, we can provide a report which contains your prescription, significant findings and retinal scans to forward to your GP or specialist.
We can also provide a referral to an Ophthalmologist if there are any other concerns.
If you end up needing glasses, we will assist you in finding the perfect solution.
You will also have the option of trying contact lenses and specialty eyewear.
