Comprehensive Eye Examination
For over a century and a quarter, Mullers has consistently provided the highest level of eyecare. Our team of professional and experienced Optometrists provides thorough eye examinations to ensure not only an accurate prescription but a detailed assessment of eye health.
The comprehensive eye examination includes:
- Assessment of the lids, lashes and anterior segment (front part of the eye)
- Internal eye health examination using direct and indirect Ophthalmoscopy and Fundus Photography
- Tonometry (Measuring the pressure of the eye for Glaucoma screening)
- Refraction – to determine the spectacle prescription
- Contact lens assessment and advice
- And other tests if necessary such as Corneal Topography, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Visual Fields, Stereopsis, Colour Vision, Low and Binocular Vision checks
What to bring with to your eye examination?
If you are a new patient to Mullers Optometrists then it is a good idea to bring the following with on the day of your eye examination:
- Medical aid card/details
- Current spectacles that you use most commonly
- Details of current contact lens prescription and the lenses themselves.
Specialised Contact Lens Fitting
Our eyes come in various shapes and sizes and some eyes may have “irregular” prescriptions due to genetics, diseases or injury.
At Mullers Optometrists we strive to provide you with the highest level of vision using the latest technologies and contact lens designs.
We offer specialised contact lens fittings for conditions such as:
- High astigmatism
- Presbypoia = bifocal contact lenses
- Post-surgical complications
- Corneal graft patients
- Irregular corneas
- Pellucid Degeneration
- Severe dry eye syndromes such as Sjogren’s syndrome
The optometrist will determine which type of contact lenses would best suit your prescription and lifestyle and works closely with your Ophthalmologist to ensure the overall health of your corneas are maintained.
What is Low Vision?
Low vision exists when your eyesight is permanently reduced to such a level that everyday visual tasks such as reading, writing or watching television become difficult to perform.
This low vision is caused by eye diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa and Diabetic Retinopathy. These eye diseases cause permanent damage to areas of the retina resulting in small patches or “islands of vision” within the visual field. These residual windows of sight are utilised during vision rehabilitation.
Our Low Vision units are based at our Claremont and Tygervalley branches where a low vision assessment is performed. The optometrist determines which specialised magnifying devices and modern digital devices may be used to allow people to read small print again or watch TV – often something that they thought would not be possible!
Steps to follow before your low vision assessment
- See your Ophthalmologist to make sure he/she agrees that you are done with medical treatment and are ready for low vision assistance.
- Make an appointment with our Low vision Optometrist at Claremont or Tygervalley for a low vision assessment.
- Bring current pairs of spectacles and magnifiers along and be well rested for the appointment.
- Think about what your main goals are to improve your lifestyle for example cooking, reading, watching television etc.
We offer screenings for Drivers and Skippers licences at no charge. Certain occupational eye screenings may be at a cost depending on the tests required. We provide you with the official Drivers Licence eye test report. For Skippers licences, you will be required to bring in the necessary forms to be filled in.
Other screenings and services that we offer include children’s vision screenings, colour vision assessments, pathology screenings and glaucoma screenings.
Frame Adjustments and Repairs
Our Optical Dispensers and front office staff are ready and able to assist you with any frame adjustments you might need, whether you recently purchased the frame from Mullers or purchased them elsewhere, feel welcome to pop in and bring your frame for an adjustment.
We are also able to handle most frame repairs but in the case that the frame is irreparable, we will offer the most effective replacement options.
