Free vision examination is performed by the owner of optics Nataša with a degree at the Polytechnic of Velika Gorica, Department of Ophthalmic Optics and officially since 2015 an optometry engineer (bacc.ing.opt.)
The main task of an optometrist is to determine visual acuity and to detect eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. We mostly rely on visual acuity testing and determine diopter height. The biggest advantage of vision control with an optometrist is that you do not have to wait in line at the hospital or pay for a private examination by an ophthalmologist. When we find that diopters cannot help improve visual acuity, we direct our clients to a detailed examination by a doctor (ophthalmologist). Also, if the client has a history of the disease, such as glaucoma, we refer him to an ophthalmologist, who is in charge of monitoring glaucoma (eye pressure), while the optometrist can check the client’s visual acuity and whether there is any change in diopter .
We perform a free vision examination every day with a previously scheduled appointment in order to comply with current epidemiological measures.
