A tension series may be requested by your ophthalmologist for a patient suffering glaucoma. It is a test of your eye pressure at different times during the day. We need to test your eye pressure at 8.00 am, 10.00 am, 12.00 midday, 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. These tests do not have to all occur on the same day, but you must have had your pressure tested at each of these times prior to your next scheduled appointment. Please arrange the times and dates you wish to have your tension series done with reception staff and they will ensure we have staff available to do this test for you at times that suits you. It will take about between 5-15 minutes each visit, and you are able to drive afterwards, there is no charge for these tensions series visits.
