OCT or Optical Coherence Tomography, is an advanced technology used to examine the eye in great detail. It is particularly useful for examining the retina and optic nerve, especially in suspected macular degeneration and glaucoma cases.
An OCT scan works in a similar way to an MRI or CAT scan for the eyes and can form a three-dimensional image allowing the optometrist to see, sometimes for the first time, problems within your eye that could not easily be seen before.
The Intuitive Colorimeter was developed by Professor Arnold Wilkins and the Medical Research Council, UK.
Our Optometrist uses this equipment to logically and sequentially explore colour space to find the optimal Precision Tint for the relief of visual stress
With many colour combinations available (100,000) and the technology accessed by Optometrists and clinicians wordwide, symptoms such as difficulty reading and tiring easily when reading may be alleviated.
Our Optomap Retinal Exam is used by our optometrists to see as much of the retina (the back of the eye) as possible. Eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye as well as any changes to your glasses or contact lens prescription. However, a thorough screening of the retina is essential to check that your eye is healthy.
A retinal exam can help with the early detection of eye conditions, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration as well as other diseases like diabetes, hypertension and risk of stroke. The exam is quick, painless, and does not usually require any dilation drops.
