We are committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of eye care available.Our job is not only to ensure that you have the best vision possible, but also to check the health of your eyes and consequently your overall well being.
We have installed a state-of-the-art Topcon digital retinal camera in our test room. This will allow us to take photographs of the back of your eye (the retina),and enable us to carry out a far more detailed examination than was previously possible. The image we take is simillar to the one shown here and we can use this photograph to diagnose the health and condition of your eyes.
This retinal examination is comfortable and the image is captured in just seconds using flash photography-nothing touches your eyes. Because pupil diameters decrease with age it is my normal policy to instill dilating drops for the over 60's so it is important to arrange not to be driving at the time of the test.
We will then have a permanent and accurate record of the condition of your eyes stored on our computer, allowing us to compare images and look for any changes, year on year - which could prove to be invaluable in monitoring your eye health.
