Your Optometrist is trained to perform not only an examination of your external eye health, but also your internal eye health. He or she will check your eyes for abnormalities, which can include early warning signs of diabetes or hypertension.
Your Optometrist will also check for warning signs and indications that glaucoma could be present or could be a potential risk – Tonometry measures the fluid pressure in the eye.
Optometrists can also detect eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration, as well as tears in the retina, injury to the eye, bleeding, and even tumours.
