Our Eye Examinations
We believe an accurate and safe eye examination takes 45 minutes and that all clinical tests including fields and pressures should be carried out by an Optometrist (rather than an unqualified optical assistant).
We have invested in an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer), a fantastic piece of kit which can image both the anterior and posterior eye, measure corneal thickness, the layers of your retina and much more. It can detect and monitor eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The images will be stored against your file and can be compared at subsequent visits.
In our Hove, Dulwich and Clapham branches we have invested in an Optomap ultra-wide retinal imaging camera, which is able to capture an image of 82% of the retina (rather than 15% with a standard fundus camera). This allows us to detect and monitor retinal disease much more accurately and thoroughly.
