Cost of an eye test Dubai Dr. Wafaa al chaer Specialist ophthalmologist dubai

Why it is wise to visit the eye doctor

May 28 2018 By Dr. Wafaa Al Chaer - Specialist Ophthalmologist

Eye care is one of the most important and yet overlooked check-ups that the general public need to do. Whether it is due to general avoidance of medical conditions or the cost of an eye test in Dubai, Just because a person doesn’t have a visible and noticeable problem with their sight does not mean that they may not have problems with their eyes or eye sight. Prevention is better than cure, this is why it is wise to visit the eye doctor once a while before any problems may develop.

Eye exams can be taken at clinics, hospitals or even at optical centres. The doctors who conduct eye exams are known as Opticians, Optometrists or Ophthalmologists depending on their specialization. There are several tests that can be conducted to test your sight and your eyes themselves and these are part of what determine the costs of an eye test in Dubai.

A comprehensive eye exam includes but isn’t restricted to, the following:

  • A review of your personal and family medical history
  • Using an eye chart to test your near and far sight
  • This also is an evaluation of the existence of nearsightedness or farsightedness
  • Eye pressure tests to detect glaucoma
  • Eye coordination exercises to test how well both your eyes work together.

Be sure to confirm with your doctor on which of these tests and any other you need because they affect the total cost of an eye test in Dubai. Other aspects such as whether or not you have insurance coverage and where you go to get checked at also affect the cost of an eye exam in Dubai. Always answer any questions asked by the doctor honestly to prevent the chance of a misdiagnosis.

Eye exams are generally cheaper and less intensive if conducted by an optician at an optical store however, be wary of cheap eye exams from clinics as they may have hidden costs for any extra services or tests you may want to have. Tests conducted by ophthalmologists are more expensive given the fact that they are highly trained and specialized in the field of the eyes and sight. Also note that cost of an eye test in Dubai for contact lenses is more than an average eye exam. It’s also a good idea to get a referral someone you trust.

If you want to know the cost of an eye test in Dubai and are looking to get an eye exam, why not come by GMCClinics. With its top of the line facilities, highly trained and experienced doctors and staff and with competitive rates and the trust and reputation of years of good service, they are a great choice for your next eye exam.
