OCT – (Optical Coherence Tomography)

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a non-contact, non-invasive technique that scans the structure of your eye and creates a 3D image of every detail.

This includes aspects of your eye that can’t be determined by any other methods.

An OCT assists in the diagnosis and monitoring of many retinal conditions. OCT is invaluable in monitoring and assessing glaucoma risk such as macular degeneration, macular holes, macular swelling and diabetic retinopathy.

It can also be used to scan the cornea, iris and other structures at the front of the eye.

OCT angiography shows moving blood within the retina. If blood is leaking where it should not be, then angiography highlights this serious problem and can potentially save your eyesight.


Keratograph 5M

The Keratograph 5M is a multipurpose instrument used for diagnosing and evaluating the front of the eye using topography, photography and other imaging.

This assists the evaluation and management of eye disease, planning for surgery and contact lens fitting.

Utilising white diodes for the tear film dynamics, blue diodes for fluo-images and infrared diodes for Meibography, it enables us to examine the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluating the lipid layer.

The K5 records digital images which we can show you during your consultation to help you better understand your condition.


Visual Fields

The visual field test carefully maps a patient’s central and peripheral vision to assess the health of your eyes.

Visual field testing enables us to diagnose and monitor many different neurological and retinal disorder such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, multiple sclerosis, stroke and tumours.


Digital Retinal Camera

Digital Retinal photography is performed with specialised technology that takes a high resolution, digital image of the retina (light sensing tissue at the back of the eye).

It is an important tool for helping us screen for, and monitor many different eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes.
