There are many different ways in which to assess eyesight, I select the most appropriate to the individual using the latest technology.
Some of the technology I use in my practice include:
Daytona scanner - Optos
Provides ultra-high resolution retinal imaging, capturing an Optomap in seconds. Five times more retina is visible, capturing 80% of the retina in one image, including the outer edges of the eye. Rules out numerous issues including retinal diseases, diabetes and retinal detachment or tears.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer) - Topcon
Produces a wide-angle high-resolution fundus image in a split second allowing us to rule out macular degeneration and glaucoma.
TRK-2P, Kerato-refractometer, tono-pachymeter
The TRK-2P combines a refractometer, a keratometer, a non-contact tonometer and a pachymeter in one compact instrument. Takes measurements of the eye, gives an estimated prescription and ????? the pressure test.
Used in conjunction with a biomicroscope, it provides a microscopic exam of eyelids, sclera, conjunctiva, iris and cornea,using a high intensity light source.
FDT Frequency Doubling Technology - Zeiss
Fast and effective test of visual field (peripheral vision), a key indicator to rule out glaucoma.
