Investing in Technology

Investing in you

New patients to our practice regularly comment on the sophisticated level of equipment we have within the consulting rooms and many of our regular patients often ask us to show them our latest purchase since their last visit!

Our on-going investment in the latest technology together with our clinical expertise means we are able to achieve a level of eye examination that gives very detailed results to help maintain and manage patients' optimum vision and ocular health.

It is a standard that reflects our commitment to the care and preservation of vision.

 

OCULAR COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)
OCT

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages, similar to ultrasound but using light rather than sound waves, that illustrates the 10 different layers that make up the back of the eye. A number of key conditions, such as glaucoma, age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy can be detected.

This particular 3D OCT captures a digital photograph of the surface of the eye at the same time and can then be cross referenced across any areas of concern allowing the Optometrist to see both the back of the eye and also a three dimensional image literary look beneath the surface of the regular retinal image.

RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Retinal Camera

Retinal photography is used to document the health of the eye and is useful in highlighting a range of conditions with an ocular effect such as diabetes and high blood pressure. The high powered lenses of the retinal camera focus on the structures of the back of the eye allowing the Optometrist to take detailed photographs of the optic nerve, macular, retina and its blood vessels.


TONOMETER AND PACHYMETER
Tonometer NT530

A tonometer is used to measure the internal pressure of the eye. It works by delivering a gentle puff of air at the front of the eye which briefly changes its shape. The tonometer then measures how long it takes for the eye to change to a calibrated shape from which the eye pressure can be calculated. Unlike most types of corneal contact tonometry, air puff tonometers do not usually require drops, and the results are available in seconds. Our latest tonometer/pachymeter also measures the central corneal thickness which is now recognised as being important in the interpretation of intraocular pressure readings.

HUMPHREY VISUAL FIELD SCREENER
HFA 3 Humphrey Visual Field Screener

The Humphrey Visual Field Screener is the gold standard of visual field screening used by eye hospitals. Field loss can be caused by Chronic Glaucoma or any condition that affects the nerve of the eye. Routine checks are carried out on those who are potentially at risk so that the peripheral vision can be measured and charted. The test may also highlight more serious conditions such as pituitary tumours. In 2016 we were one of the first practices in the UK to invest in the latest version of the Zeiss Humphrey Visual Field Screener (HFA 3) offering our patients the benefits of the improved state of the art technology.

FDT VISUAL FIELD SCREENER
FDT Visual Field Screener

The FDT Visual Field Screener is also used to check the peripheral vision and aids in early field vision loss detection and basic glaucoma management.

The peripheral vision is mapped each time the test is carried out and the results monitored so that any subtle changes are detected.


CORNEAL ANALYsER
Corneal Analyzer

The corneal analyser takes a three-dimensional map of the curvature of the cornea and is useful during both the design and fitting stages of contact lenses. It measures the position and height of several thousand points across the entire cornea which is critical for determining the quality of vision.

Corneal topography is also instrumental in diagnosing and monitoring keratoconus.

SLIT LAMP
Slit Lamp

With its rotating slit angle from 0 to 180 degrees and horizontal scanning capability, the slit lamp is used to examine the front surface of the eye, contact lenses and for checking any corneal abrasions and infections like conjunctivitis.
