About The VDU Eye Examination

The examination is a comprehensive full Eye Examination and not just a quick VDU vision test:

  • It checks all aspects of ocular health and function, screening for glaucoma and other abnormalities such as diabetic eye disease and dry eye disease
  • It investigates all visual complaints both VDU and non-VDU related.
  • It utilizes specially designed software based tests, produced by Top Vision Professional and Rodenstock to investigate common problem areas.
  • It incorporates Optimized VDU Prescribing. This is the calculation of the specific prescription required for each individuals work station set up, to ensure the best display screen comfort and clarity.

Optional Additional Tests

As well as checking for focusing defects, we investigate other common problems associated with computer use, such as Dry Eyes.

Initial screening for these conditions is done as part of every examination. Employees can also elect to pay separately for more extensive investigation for specific more complex problems or for advanced screening.

Dry Eye Analysis

One of the most common complaints of VDU users are that of ‘dry feeling’, sore eyes. Contact lens wearers especially suffer from this problem and we can give advice on ways of improving comfort. Our Optometrists keep abreast of the latest research in this area including new contact lens material technology, specifically designed to counteract dehydration.

Visual Field Examination

Is one of the advanced techniques used to screen for eye diseases and neurological defects.

A permanent record is created of all the visual field, which is used to compare against at future examinations.

Visual field examination allows for the detection of subtle visual loss and neurological changes, which can lead to much earlier disease detection and management.
