The practice

The practice contains consultation and dedicated ancillary equipment rooms extensively equipped with state of the art instruments including:

  • Zeiss Humphrey field analyser 3 computerised perimeter for investigating visual fields.
  • Topcon computerised auto-refractor for measuring spectacle refraction.
  • Slitlamps for examining and imaging the anterior segment of the eye.
  • Computerised Medmont C-100 for testing colour vision deficiencies.
  • Digital Goldmann applanation, Perkins, i-Care and non-contact puff tonometers for measuring intra-ocular pressure.
  • Fundus camera for digital retinal imaging.
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) which enables high resolution cross-sectional retinal imaging for the comprehensive management and diagnosis of glaucoma, retinal disease, and in particular macular degeneration. OCT enables our optometrists to more readily distinguish between the dry and the wet form of macular degeneration.
  • Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) which is a non-invasive technique for imaging the microvasculature of the retina and the choroid.
  • Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) which provides information about the health and function of the retina. 
  • Intense Regulated Pulsed Light (IRPL) therapy with TEARSTIM IPL for dry eye treatment.
  • Computerised topography for keratoconus management and miniscleral contact lens fitting as well as orthokeratology (ortho-k) lens fitting. 

Our on-site workshop also means you don't have to wait weeks before you can get your spectacles, and our purchasing staff always ensure we always have the best ranges of spectacles at lowest prices.
