DILATED EYE ASSESSMENT

 

A child’s eyes is very different from an adult. 
Firstly, the brain (Visual Cortex) develops during the first 7 years. If a child vision does not develop then his/her vision will be impaired throughout adult life (Lazy Eye).
Secondly, a dilated examination is necessary as per International Guidelines. It is only performed by a medical doctor (Ophthalmologist) who has been trained. The drops are safe and painless. We have a fully trained pediatric pathway and team which ensures that it is least stressful to both child and parents.


Most importantly, the drops allow for two assessments:
(1) Accurate eye examination to exclude any sight-threatening diseases.
(2) An accurate assessment of any spectacle prescription. 
(3) We are the only service with Zeiss Intelligent Automated Technology.
(4) Digital imaging can also be performed to determine the eye health and serial assessments.
