We use the latest optometry testing equipment as only premium eye care is acceptable for our patients – if your current optometrist has more toys stay there if not come here! Not that it’s a competition :)…. We treat your eyes like we would treat our own so we like to do our very best to get it right.
Visual acuity equipment including: Topcon auto-refractor, auto-keratometer, auto-pachometer (central corneal thickness), auto-tonometer and CV-5000 computerised refractor head and vision tester for extreme accuracy.
Optical Coherence Tomography using Ziess technology “the gold standard in OCT imaging” gives us fine details of ARMD and glaucoma detection, management and care. The retinal specialists trust Zeiss for this and so do we. We also have the latest OCT from OptiMed with OCT biometry for axial length measurements.
Our glaucoma patients are co-managed with specialist ophthalmologists and ARMD further care arranged if indicated when wet ARMD is discovered and/or has changed. Macular degeneration is important to monitor regularly with many of our patients seen regularly for scans in case dry ARMD turns to wet ARMD.
Our OCT’s can also image the anterior segment helping us with mini-scleral and scleral contact lenses along with other RGP designs for our keratoconic, post corneal graft and irregular corneal patients.
Digital retinal imaging using high definition Nikon (12MP) digital cameras and computerised imaging for early detection and monitoring of retinal pathology. This image is then carefully viewed with each patient on a 42″ screen which as they say – “a picture tells a thousand words”. Complimenting this is a stand alone Digital Retinal Scanner for fast and accurate posterior eye imaging. The OCT also has what is known as OCT Angiography (OCT-A) which images the peri-foveal retinal plexus. For our diabetic, ARMD and at risk of choroidal neovascular membrane patients we think that this is important.
Medmont corneal topographer with digital contact lens simulation for complicated eyes and specialty contact lens fitting and ability to send imaging directly to laboratory for lens manufacture. The Medmont Meridia is latest generation topographer also has infrared meibomian gland imagining, fluorescein imaging and tear analysis modules.
Myopia control clinic for our paediatric patients is complimented with axial length measurements with a Zeiss IOL Master and OCT with biometry capability. Myopia progression needs the length of the eye measured to help us tell whether myopia is being held a bay or getting worse.
Medmont visual field analyser with video feed for accurate field assessment and monitoring for issues such as glaucoma, age related macular degeneration (ARMD) and field loss.
We have an extensive range of contact lens trial sets in both soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. Whether the contact lenses be soft, rigid or hybrid when a new contact lens comes to market (often pre-market release) we position ourselves to get this latest technology and make it available. Many of our patients have been involved in clinical trial of new release contact lenses way before the world gets hold of them.
We love using cutting edge equipment and we are often involved in pre-release products and research so you may be asked to be a part of the future of eye care. On that note you might even see the opportunity to be involved in one of our clinical trials with our Ophthalmic Trial arm. We treat your eyes like our eyes where only the best will suffice.
