When you get an eye test in Garstang at The Spectacle Factory, we are not just testing how well you can or cannot see. We are also checking the overall health of your eyes. We may dilate your pupils which will give us the best view of your eye. Signs of cataracts, macular degeneration, corneal ulcers and diabetic retinopathy, and more are eye diseases and disorders that we will be looking for. Our technicians will also be testing for glaucoma which is actually a group of diseases that can damage the optic nerve. Glaucoma can lead to permanent blindness but there are no obvious warning signs to the patient until they begin to experience vision loss. Our technicians can spot it early which allows for treatment to slow the progress.
Other tests we may undertake will reveal colour blindness, your depth perception and how well your eyes work together. For many in Garstang, eye test for visual acuity is their primary purpose. This is the test that will determine if you need corrective lenses for your best possible vision. The process actually involves a group of tests which will ultimately define the correct prescription for you. We spend the time it takes to get it right. We create your prescription from the finest products in our own lab by our technicians that work with precision. About 99% of our prescription lenses are ready the same day. Our clients like the convenience of one appointment and done.
