You can't spot eye disease
Checking you vision to see if you require glasses or contact lenses is only one aspect of the eye examination. We have the latest state of the art equipment to help detect eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic eye disease. Over 80% of preventable vision loss can be avoided by early detection and diseases such as glaucoma give very little early symptoms.
Topcon Digital Retinal Camera
Digital Retinal Photography is the most up to date technology to detect and monitor the health of the Retina. This camera is invaluable in the early detection of macular degeneration. Our Optometrists will show you the images on our purpose built monitors. All Diabetic should have digital retinal images done every 12 months.
Humphreys FDT Visual Analyser
The Humphreys frequency doubling visual field analyzer can be utilized to detect diseases of the optic nerve such as glaucoma. This equipment examines the peripheral vision and detects loss of vision or blind spots. Our Optometrists have detected many early signs of glaucoma and have subsequently referred on to our trusted ophthalmologists for treatment.
