Patient examinations

Examinations and opinions for surgeries of laser vision correction, presbyopia and implanting intraocular lens without the obligation to perform surgery. 

Retinal preventive examinations for early detection of diabetic damage or degenerative diseases of the macula. Health check-ups for early detection of elevated intraocular pressure and prevention of the development of glaucoma. Consultative examinations after already performed surgery.

Examinations for glasses

We perform general ophthalmological examinations. Basic eye examination consists of determining visual acuity with prescription diopter for close and distant vision, the measurement of intraocular pressure, review of the anterior segment of the eye under the biomicroscope (eyelids, joints, cornea, anterior eye chambers, pupil and lens) and the spread of pupils with an overview of the posterior segment of eye – fundus (vitreous, optic nerve, retina and blood vessels).

If the eye is healthy and has only diopter the patient can be administered any glasses both for far and close vision, as well as progressive glasses.

If during the review any eye disease is detected (inflammation, cataract, dry eye, problems with the eyelids, yellow spot disease diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma)  then the patient is administered the required therapy or the patient is instructed to conduct additional tests and referred to a subspecialists ophthalmologist who specialized in the specific problem.


Examinations for contact lenses

We perform examinations for contact lenses. When scheduling your appointment, it is good to emphasize that the examination is for the purposes of wearing contact lenses because this way the patient can be referred to our ophthalmologists who specialize in administering contact lenses. Also at the day of the examination it is good to bring all of the previous medical reports from eye examinations and the old glasses or contact lenses if the patient has any.

Also when scheduling the appointment it is important to emphasize that the patient has already worn or still wears contact lenses and what type of lenses (soft, semi-hard or hard). If the patient has semi-hard or soft lenses it will be necessary to stop wearing contact lenses for a few days before the examination because wearing lenses can affect the accuracy of the report for the prescription of new contact lenses. It is recommended that semi-hard lenses are removed as many days prior to the examination as the number of years the patient has been wearing them while soft contact lenses should be removed three full days before the examination.

In addition to the general ophthalmologic examination during the examination for contact lenses it is specifically determined the curvature of the cornea and the quality of the tear film and trial contact lenses are placed to ease the choice of the optimum lenses for the patient’s prescription diopter and any specific needs.

In addition to the usual examination of contact lenses, we also prescribe special contact lenses for keratoconus as well as cosmetic contact lenses.

General medical examination as part of treatment for systemic diseases

The medical examination of the eyes can be lead to diagnoses or assist in the diagnosis of many systemic diseases. Very often medical doctors specialist in different fields such as internists, cardiologists, diabetologists, neurologists or family doctors in the treatment of their diseases also seek ophthalmological examination, this request has dual reasons. Firstly, the examination of the eyes and in particular of the fundus can determine the general condition of blood vessels of the body in arterial hypertension, atherosclerosis, diabetes or cerebrovascular diseases. The eye doctor within his findings will describe to his fellow internists, neurologists or diabetologists, the condition of blood vessels and will help in the assessment of the duration of high blood pressure, diabetes or a condition of sclerosis of blood vessels. During the follow ups of eye examinations it can be determined progress or the general improvement in the overall status of the patient.

Secondly, internists, neurologists or a diabetes specialists knowing that some systemic diseases can damage the eye as an organ such as in diabetic patients, send their patients who have trouble in vision to go for preventive examinations to determine if any damage to the eye has occurred as part of systemic disease.

Ophthalmic examination

We perform general ophthalmological examinations. Basic eye examination consists of determining visual acuity with prescription of diopter for close and distant vision, the measurement of intraocular pressure, review of the anterior segment of the eye under the biomicroscope (eyelids, joints, cornea, anterior eye chambers, pupil and lens) and the dilatation of pupils with an overview of the posterior segment of eye – fundus (vitreous, optic nerve, retina and blood vessels).

If the eye is healthy and has only diopter the patient can be administered any glasses both for far and close vision, as well as progressive glasses.

If during the review any eye disease is detected (inflammation, cataract, dry eye, problems with the eyelids, yellow spot disease diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma) then the patient is administered the required therapy or the patient is instructed to conduct additional tests and referred to a subspecialists ophthalmologist who specialized in the specific problem.

General eye examination on average lasts about an hour, if no additional examinations and tests are required. Due to the expansion of the pupil a few hours after the examination the vision may be slightly blurred and in that time it is not recommended to drive any vehicles.
