Comprehensive Eye Examinations
COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMINATIONS ARE BULK BILLED
Comprehensive eye examinations are conducted using an array of cutting edge diagnostic equipment to assure the highest professional service possible.
A comprehensive eye examination takes up 30-45 minutes of your time.
(Not 15-20 minutes at large optical chains)
Specialty Eye Tests
Dialated Fundus Examination (DFE)
Dilated Fundus Examination (DFE) This is a diagnostic procedure that employs the use of eye drops to dilate or enlarge the pupil in order to obtain a better view of the internal surface of the eye (i.e. fundus). DFE has been found to be a more effective method for evaluation of internal ocular health than non-dilated examination.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Zeiss oct cirrus
- Optical Coherence Tomography is the one of the latest technologies that takes a topographical map of the back of your eye . Depending on the area that your Optometrist wishes to concentrate on, the test can look at your macula, optic disc or general retina.
It is particularly useful in the diagnosis and management of eye conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic macular oedema, macular hole, epiretinal membrane, vitreo-macular traction syndrome and glaucoma. It has also become a gold standard in monitoring these conditions.
An OCT scan is very quick to perform and it is completely painless and non-invasive. Results are available instantaneously and it is a great way for patients to gain a better understanding of their eye condition.
Digital Retinal Imaging
This is a painless process that uses advanced digital photography to record detailed photos of your retina. The photos are used for comparison, documentation, and to diagnose certain sight-threatening eye conditions such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Tumours, Holes and Detachments.
ZEISS i.Scription® Technology / i.Profiler
The next Generation of Lens Optimisation
i.Profiler®plus does not only provide you a better prescription, it gives you access to an optimised individualised lens solution with i.Scription technology for improved colour and contrast vision as well as improved night vision. i.Scription involves an innovative patented algorithm which combines the subjective refraction values with the i.Profiler plus ocular wavefront aberrometry data to calculate an individualised prescription to 1/100th of a dioptre – especially for lower light situations.
Visual Field Testing
Humphrey;s visual field analyser.It is a simple, painless procedure and takes only about 15 minutes. This test is invaluable in diagnosing, and monitoring the treatment in patients with glaucoma. It is also useful in certain neurological conditions and in some conditions affecting the optic nerve of the eye.
VISUAL FIELD TESTING IS BULK BILLED
Visual Acuity Test
Colour Blindness Test
Manual refraction with a phoropter.
A tonometry test measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure (IOP).
This test is used to check for glaucoma, an eye disease that can cause blindness by damaging the nerve in the back of the eye
Many other tests are available in practice for the correct diagnosis of your eye condition
