Eye Test Abu Dhabi

Regular eye tests are essential to maintain our eye health and quality of vision.

When it comes to your annual eye examination, you may be surprised to find that it’s a team work and you will not just need one eye doctor (ophthalmologist), but a group of expert specialists in their particular fields.

For example, if you already wear glasses or contact lenses, need special examinations or treatment, or even surgery, then you are likely to meet specialists in each area.

There are also different specialists for adults and children.
