Eye Health at OCULA: Beyond Vision Checks

We take the health of our patients very seriously. When you book an eye assessment with OCULA, we don’t just examine your vision. We also look for every possible eye condition and disease that modern technology can detect.

Good vision doesn’t necessarily mean you have healthy eyes. Eye disease can be invisible, without any obvious signs something is wrong until it’s too late. 

However, many eye diseases and conditions are preventable and treatable if caught in time. The key is regular eye assessments to ensure your eyes are healthy. 


Each eye assessment lasts 45 minutes, and includes:

Eyesight evaluation

Ensuring clear vision for short and long distances.

Eye-teaming evaluation

Ensuring both eyes are working as a team.

Visual processing

Understanding how your brain is making sense of what you see.

Deep eye health evaluation

The most thorough eye health examination available, to detect diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal detachment.
