We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our practice.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
An OCT is often likened to an MRI scan of the eye. It takes cross-sectional images of the retina, optical disc and cornea. This procedure is currently the only one that shows in-depth images of the eyes internal surface, making it a powerful diagnostic tool. It detects early signs of eye disease and helps monitor disease as each image is stored and used as a baseline measure against future scans. Zeiss Cirrus machines are regarded as the goldstandard in OCTs.
Ultra-wideﬁeld retinal imaging
Our Optos Daytona gives us a 200° range within a single scan capturing highly detailed images of your retina. It captures up to 82% of your retina while traditional retinal imaging captures only 15%. This enables us to get a comprehensive view of the back your eye and identify any blood vessel abnormalities that could indicate early signs of disease such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, ocular cancers and diabetic eye disease. We recommend an annual retinal scan for all adult patients
Visual Fields Analyser
The Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyser provides the gold standard visual ﬁeld test. Combined with our OCT this instrument is essential in the diagnosis and management of Glaucoma. It can also detect other conditions such as strokes and pituitary tumours in the brain, which can cause visual ﬁeld loss.
The DNEYE scanner is used to take over 7000 measurements of the eye, this gives us an incredible amount of information in regards to the focusing of your individual eye, we can then incorporate this as measurements into your lenses giving you incredible improvements in contrast and vision.
Rodenstock ImpressionIST 4
Optical lenses need to be fitted precisely for clear vision. Because every frame and every face is different there is no point in having the best lenses on the market unless they are precisely fitted to your frame. This used to be done by hand. We now utilise the latest in measurement technology to determine the precise centration of your lenses in your frame, as you wear it. The Rodenstock ImpressionIST 4 utilises threedimensional video measurement to give you the perfect fit to allow you
lenses to work properly.
Once these measurements are taken, Rodenstock incorporates them to the calculations in order to optimise the optical characteristics of your lens. The ImpressionIST uploads the data directly to the optical lab in Germany where your lenses are manufactured. With German precision, the lenses are digitally cut in a process known as freeform production.
You will receive precisely optimised lens designed just for you with maximum near and distance vision and minimum distortion.
