Routine eye checks

At the very latest, starting at the age of 40, an annual routine exam is required, to diagnose chronic eye diseases such as glaucoma early on.


A routine exam typically includes an eyesight test, checking possible glasses, measuring intraocular pressure and an exam using the slit lamp, to examine important parts of the eye such as cornea, eye lens and retina.

Treating eye diseases

Chronic eye diseases require regular eye exams.


E.g. glaucoma requires an intraocular pressure check and a field of view exam, among other things, once or twice a year.

Therefore, visual performance and developing vision is very important to your children, not least for the development of the brain as well.
