What Is Involved In An Aviation Eye Examination?
1 hour is set aside for the eye examination. The eye test compromises a full assessment of vision, spectacle refraction, binocular vision and co-ordination, peripheral vision and ocular health assessment.
Will Any Drops Be Used?
Dilating drops will be used. A dilated fundus examination involves a review of the optic nerve and macula function. The type of equipment used is an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). This the latest technology in detecting eye disease. Bring along sunglasses and plan not to drive for at least 2 hours.
What Is Needed?
Please bring photo ID (e.g. drivers licence) and ARN.
Results will be automatically submitted electronically.
