With our computerized technology, our patients are thoroughly screened for all ocular and nano-ophthalmic pathology and any findings are treated appropriately.
Here are some of the advanced equipment we make use of:
COMPUTERIZED VISUAL ACUITY CHART – Easy and convenient chart, which easily eliminates the need for the manual chart. With the click of a mouse, the status of the patient’s visual acuity is determined. The chart allows for isolation, single letters and/or rows and also shapes. Contains charts for children as well as for children.
AUTO-REFRACTION – There is an instrument called the Auto-Refractor. A computer controlled machine which provides an objective measurement of a person’s refractive error in no time.
HUMPHREY’S VISUAL FIELD ANALYZER – A computerized tool used for measuring the human visual field. It is essential in detecting any damage to one’s visual field and equally serves as a confirmatory technique for glaucoma.
FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHER – This tool is used in capturing a photograph of the back of the eye i.e the fundus. It captures the main structures in the fundus such as the central and peripheral retina, optic disc and macula. It affords the patient the opportunity to see first hand, the back of his/her own eyes, especially in the event of any abnormal changes.
SLIT LAMP EXAMINATION – The slit lamp examination is usually performed during eye check-ups, with the aid of the slit lamp biomicroscope. It is used for detecting any diseases or abnormalities in the anterior portion of the eye, which includes the eyelids, lashes, lens, conjuctiva, cornea and iris. It also facilitates examination of the posterior segment of the huma eye. It provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions.
THE PHOROPTER – The phoropter is a common name for an opthalmic testing device. It is commonly used by eye care professionals during an eye examination and contains different lenses used for refraction of the eye during sight testing, to measure an individual’s refractive error and determine his or her eye glass prescription. It is also used to measure the patient’s phorias and ductions, which are characteristics of binocularity.
