Eye test at Medical

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance has his medical in a couple weeks but has been having a problem with one of his eyes. Its something to do with the blood vessels behind his eye, so nothing contagious or life threatening, but not just a simple update to his glasses can be done. He is not seeing much right now because he's been waiting for an appointment with the eye Dr in Northern Ireland. His appointment just got scheduled because of the months wait - and I'm quite sure the eye will not be fixed by the time he leaves for the US (assuming all were to go smooth).

Our questions are: Do they do an eye test at the medical? He will not pass in the one eye right now, would you think itll affect the medical results?

I had my medical last week at the Knightsbridge Doctors. It's super simple and relatively quick!
So when you he goes in he'll need to:

  • Supply the documents requested
  • Fill in another questionnaire which gets handed back to reception
  • Provide a urine sample
  • Get a general medical check-up (They just look through your records and discuss anything of concern, weigh/measure you, take blood pressure, check reflexes, check lungs/heart and take blood.)
  • Speak to a nurse who will check through all previous vaccinations
  • Get a chest x-ray

Pay the not-so-fun fee and voila!

 

I was super worried and nervous but it was really easy to find and everyone was very nice.

They have you read an eye chart. He shouldn't "fail" the medical because it it. If he has seen anybody about this, then a short report and mention of the referral would be appropriate to take to the exam. This is a medical problem, not just bad vision needling glasses.

 

He might want to get it medically resolved on NHS if there are procedures needed to restore his vision. It could be VERY  costly to take care of in the US. Check out all the options.

Thank you for the replies. We'll make sure to bring his future appointment letter and records from his doc. Hopefully his condition doesn't delay anything. 

 

It looks like he's gonna get it fixed here, because there's no way we're waiting the 6+ months for the specialist appointment. Fortunately I work for our health care & insurance company and know the ins/outs very well.

... and our family has already met our OOP which makes it 'free' (& I knowingly use that phrase loosely) here too. :D
