As part of the work up for eye disease we often measure the strength of glasses that are required to correct your vision. This enables us to work out whether glasses or contacts might be an appropriate treatment for you, and also gives us important information to help inform decision-making about potential surgical interventions.

However being fitted with a pair of glasses is more than just obtaining a ‘refraction’, and we recommend that you see an Optometrist as they specialise in providing glasses for people on a regular basis, and have insight into the whole process from refraction to dispensing.
