Comprehensive Eye Tests

We understand that every patient’s eyesight is unique, and that’s why our optometrists use the most up-to-date diagnostic techniques and equipment to provide you with the best possible care. During your eye examination, we will thoroughly evaluate your eyesight and discuss your eye health and any prescriptions or follow-up that you may need.

At our clinic, we keep a personalised digital record of your examination for future reference. This allows us to track even the smallest changes and detect abnormalities quickly, providing you with the care, information, and support that you need.

OCT Scans

Experience comprehensive eye care with our full eye exam, which includes the cutting-edge OCT examination.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced eye scan suitable for individuals of all ages. It images the different layers that make up the structures at the front and back of the eye. The OCT scan, like its forerunner, the Fundus Camera, captures a retinal photograph and in addition it provides a cross-sectional scan of the eye. This revolutionary technology generates high-resolution 3D images that meticulously reveal the eye’s structure from the cornea to the optic nerve and beyond.

The OCT scan plays a vital role in early disease detection, allowing us to identify potential issues before symptoms manifest and vision loss becomes irreversible. It serves as an invaluable tool for monitoring disease progression and assessing the effectiveness of treatments. Trust in our expertise and leverage the power of OCT to safeguard your vision and maintain optimal eye health.

3D OCT Scans provide early diagnosis and monitoring many sight-threatening conditions including:

  • Wet & Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration

  • Vitreous Detachments
  • Macula Tears & Holes
  • Macular Oedema
  • Hypertension
  • Glaucoma

Early detection and treatment of some of these conditions can mean the difference between future blindness and healthy vision.
