How do we do Mobile Screening?
We've utilised latest medical equipment and technology to compress the eye screening process into a mobile process. As we understand there might certain limitations for travelling or inaccessibility for whatever reasons, we bring the eye screening to you.
Who are these Mobile Optometrists?
Our Mobile Optometrists are health professionals providing the comprehensive eye screening. In Singapore Optometrists are required to be registered with the Board and have a valid registration certificate (RC) and practising certificate (PC). When we visit you, our optometrists will show you his/her RC and PC before setting up.
Our Optometrists are primary eye care providers who specialise in performing eye examinations. Through these tests, they can detect eye-infections and common eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, all of which may be treatable if detected early.
In general, optometrists are qualified to:
Perform refraction on patients who are adults, children or adolescents.
Prescribe optical appliances such as glasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems such as short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.
Perform visual examination on patients and refer them to other healthcare practitioners such as ophthalmologist for further management if any eye abnormalities/diseases are detected.
Perform any other type of practice of eye care which is part of the practice of opticianry (eg. dispensing and fitting of glasses and contact lenses).
