Private eye exams are conducted by independent optometrists or ophthalmologists in practices. These exams usually involve a comprehensive assessment of the patient's visual health and include various tests to determine visual acuity, assess refractive errors, check eye muscle function, and evaluate overall eye health. Private eye exams may also include additional services such as retinal imaging, specialised screenings, and personalised eyewear recommendations.
