Since 2008, Maison Declerck offers an optometry service (visual test). The service can be provided every day of the week (including Saturdays) by appointment.

An optometric test takes about 40 minutes. This guarantees the accuracy of the determination of the dioptric of ophthalmic glasses and increases the visual performance that each client can expect.

Each sight test is completed by Dylan LECLERC (the only graduate Optician – Optometrist from Paris-Sud XI University in Optometric and Contact Lenses Sciences in the city of Liège). To help his work Maison DECLERCK has the best measuring instruments (retinoscope, ZEISS aberometer, ZEISS slit light, etc…)

[Link what is optometry]

Optometric is the measure of sight (gr. Optos: visible & metron: measure)

Examens de vue

An optometrist is considered as a first line practitioner, and has two major responsibilities, namely the sight and the health of the person consulting him. The latter is shared by all health professionals.

When he starts a test, the optometrist will ask himself the following questions:

  1.       Does the subject suffer from visual disorders? Is his visual performance optimal? Can the quality of his sight be improved by optical compensation, and/or visual exercising, and/or appropriate advice?
  2.       Might the subject have a pathological injury? Does he/she have a medical opinion? If an eye pathology is identified or suspected, or if a systemic anomaly is suspected, the patient should be referred to an ophthalmologist or another competent doctor of medicine.

The optometric test should not limit itself to a « sight test » more commonly known as « refraction » in professional jargon. At the end of the visit the optometrist should have an answer to the following 5 questions:

  1.       What was the reason for the visit? The main complaint? What other significant symptoms have been reported by the subject?
  2.       Is an eye or systemic pathology suspected?
  3.       What is the subject’s ametropy? What is the level of dependency on optical compensation?
  4.       What is the level of binocularity?
  5.       What is the best treatment option?

Organisation of the optometric test                        

The organisation of an optometric test is necessary.

  1.       Analysis of symptoms and case stories.
  2.       Preliminary testing.
  3.       Determination of distance and close refraction.
  4.       Inspection of binocular sight.
  5.       Additional tests as needed.
  6.       Analysis of eye structures.
