As very experienced professionals, we understand how the right technology can significantly help in detecting, assessing and monitoring eye conditions and eye conditions can be a sign of underlying health issues such as hypertension, diabetes, thyroid conditions, tumours, autoimmune diseases to name a few. It really is not just about “a prescription check”. As such, we have invested in the latest technology including:

Pre-Screening Equipment: Topcon TRK1P

  • Non Contact Tonometry –measures intraocular pressure to screen for glaucoma
  • Automated Pachemetry– more accurate assessment of: the intraocular pressure to screen for glaucoma; corneal thickness to assess suitability for laser eye surgery and corneal swelling due to contact lens wear
  • Automated Refractor –more accurate prescription for eye wear and contact lens correction
  • Automated Keratometer –more accurate assessment of corneal curvature, needed for contact lens fittings

Examination Room Equipment: Topcon CV5000 and DL 1P

  • CV5000 – allows us to determine your astigmatism to the exact degree, not possible with convential dials and allows an instant comparison between new and old prescription
  • DL 1P – this latest digital microscope, allows us to examine and photograph all eye tissue including the cornea, lens, retina, optic nerve and macula area
