Can I drive after the examination?
Due to the pupils being dilated, your vision will be a little blurry for about two hours after the examination. During this time, you will not be capable of operating a motor vehicle. We therefore recommend that patients come to this examination accompanied by someone or that they use public transportation.
How often should I see the ophthalmologist?
There is no general rule on how often you should get your eyes checked. Recommended frequency depends on age, whether there is already a known eye disease or any other afflictions that also affect vision. Regular examinations are recommendable to those who suffer from diabetes, higher intraocular pressure (glaucoma), some chronic diseases of the eye fundus (retina), chronic diseases of the cornea (for example, keratoconus) and anyone who regularly uses contact lenses.
How much time do I need for the examination?
You will spend approximately one hour at our clinic. After the dioptre value and intraocular pressure are measured and the anterior parts of the eye are examined, it is also necessary to dilate the pupils using eye drops, which lasts about 15-20 minutes. This is followed by an examination of the fundus and in some cases, other types of additional examinations, depending on our findings.
