At Melton Optical, an initial examination may take 30 minutes or more. This always includes a detailed history covering your previous ocular history, your general health including medications, as well as your family history. As well as measuring and correcting your vision, we will carry out a thorough investigation of your eye health looking for eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and macula degeneration, as well as systemic  diseases such as diabetes and hypertension  which, if left unchecked , can have devastating  effects on vision.
