OPSM Eye Test Review

Earlier this month I was invited into OPSM to undergo a complimentary eye test. And given that I spend hour upon hour in front of the computer screen, it was quite possibly one of the best things I’ve done for my health this year!

After cross examining each eye with a ‘cover test’ and ‘visual activity test’, I then had an Ultrawide Retinal Display Scan (a near panoramic image of the retina of up to 200 degrees compared to the standard photo that takes only the central 45 degrees). This was to determine my eye’s long term conditions – allowing the Optometrist to pick up conditions such as melanoma and retinal detachments that they previously may have missed.  Now if you get a bit squirmish, you may not want to see the image of my eye below:

But basically the end result was that my eyes are very healthy with a slight correction. Therefore I was given my new Bulgari eyeglasses for reading and working on the computer.

And since wearing my eyeglasses, I’ve noticed that I can see the computer screen a lot clearer and my small headaches after several hours of work have now subsided…

I cannot recommend getting regular eye tests from OPSM more!

It’s actually hard to believe that one million Australians have never had their eyes tested before.

Grant Fisher, the National Eyecare Director for OPSM recommends regular eye tests, stating, “Regular eye tests are critical for all Australians to check both the health of their eyes and general wellbeing.

“The misconception is that only those who have corrective eyewear need to have their eyes tested. However, eye tests can also pick up on eye diseases such as glaucoma, as well as indicators for broader health issues such as diabetes.”

Each adult should be tested every two years. With children needing their eyes checked at the age of six months, three years and before first grade. For more information, you can head to the OPSM website here.

Shortly thereafter – upon discovering that a vast majority of the fashion industry were being out-shadowed by the commercial conglomerates of the world – Vicky (who equally grew tired of having no creative freedom herself) set out to create her own digital publishing platform that focused on promoting the incredible talents of all creatives within the fashion industry. Which is how The Fashion Catalyst began in 2009.
