As part of our commitment to provide you with the highest standard of eye care, we include Retinal imaging as standard in our comprehensive eye examinations.
A state-of-the-art Digital retinal camera captures photographic images of the back of your eyes. This technique is one of the most accurate and advanced ways of screening for many eye diseases, as it allows us to inspect the retina in far more detail than conventional methods previously relied on.
The detection of certain such conditions, including Glaucoma, Diabetes, Hypertension, and Age-related Macular Degeneration, to name a few, can be made quickly and earlier, thus limiting any unnecessary loss of vision.
The optometrist takes time to show and explain the images taken of the back of your eyes to you as we feel this will give you a better understanding of the health of your eyes.
The images taken are stored and can be recalled, enabling the optometrist to compare these from one visit to the next, allowing even the most subtle changes to be detected and aiding in early diagnosis.
