At Eyes On Optometrists, we are committed to providing you with access to the latest in diagnostic testing. The services available will vary at each of our locations.
Digital retinal imaging is part of our standard comprehensive consultation. Using the latest Japanese and Italian technology we are able to capture wide angle images of the back of the eye. This enables us to more accurately assess the health of the eye and monitor changes. It is extremely useful in the diagnosis and management of macula degeneration and glaucoma.
Digital imaging is currently available at our our stores except Somerville.
Corneal topographers scan thousands of points on the surface (cornea) of the eye allowing us to build a map of the shape of the cornea. This diagnostic test has many uses such as:
OCT is a specialist diagnostic test which allows us to look deeper into the eye. Using an advanced laser system the OCT is able to scan through the various layers of the eye. It can even provide us with a 3D representation of the layers of the retina. In many ways it is like a MRI for the eye.
OCT testing is useful in diagnosing early glaucoma and macula diseases such as Macula degeneration, and fluid in the retina.
OCT testing is current performed at our Docklands specialist diagnostic clinic.
Dry eye is increasingly becoming a problem in our daily lives. We have a number of non invasive tests which help use solve those persistent dry eye problems.
Using advanced imaging systems we can now scan the glands on the lids (meibography) to look for blocked or damaged glands.
Tears are a vital component to maintaining moist and comfortable eyes. Tear film layer scans allow us to scan the surface of the eye to determine the stability of the tear layer.
Eyes On was one of the first practices in Melbourne to adopt the new Icare technology to assess the pressure inside your eye. Unlike traditional technologies, the Icare tonometer doesn't require drops or a puff of air. It is over in a matter of seconds.
