CLINICAL PROCEDURES

 Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina which is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

 

Fluorescein Angiography

A fluorescein angiography is a medical procedure in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the bloodstream. The dye highlights the blood vessels in the back of the eye so they can be photographed. This test is often used to manage eye disorders.

 

Fundus Photography

Fundus photography involves capturing a photograph of the back of the eye i.e. fundus.

 

A-scan Ultrasound / IOL Master 500 & IOL Master 700

A-scan ultrasound biometry, commonly referred to as an A-scan, an essential diagnostic test used in ophthalmology. The A-scan provides data on the length of the eye, which is a major determinant in common sight disorders. This test is necessary for cataract surgery.

 

B-scan Ultrasound

B-scan ultrasonography, or B-scan, is a diagnostic test used in ophthalmology to produce a two-dimensional, cross-sectional view of the eye and the orbit.

 

Corneal Pachmetry

A pachymeter is a medical device used to measure the thickness of the eye's cornea.

 

Corneal Topography         

Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.

 

Computerised Field Analysis (Visual Fields)

Visual field tests are used to detect blind spots, which could be a sign of eye diseases. The size and shape of a blind spot offers important information about the presence and severity of diseases of the eye, optic nerve and visual structures in the brain.
