OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
In modern health care, focus has shifted from treatment of disease to early detection to promote the best possible outcome . With our state of the art Ocular Coherence Tomographer (OCT) we are able to detect abnormalities which cannot be seen using the basic retinal photograph or in a standard eye examination.
Using the OCT we can automatically identify small changes over time using a 3D scanning technique which scans through the layers inside the eye. This is the next generation of diagnostic equipment and has superseded retinal photography as the gold standard of care.
We are the only practice in the area that has invested in such advanced equipment and it is available as part of our superior eye examination to all of our patients.
The Optomap uses non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers to create ultra-widefield retinal imaging. It allows us to see up to 82% of your retina in one panoramic image and detect ocular problems more quickly and easily compared to traditional methods which typically only show 15% of your retina.
This service is not at any other practice in Warwickshire and is available exclusively for our customers as part of our comprehensive and superior eye exams.
The iProfiler plus helps us deliver futuristic levels of accuracy for our spectacle and contact lens wearers above and beyond the industry’s standard by taking 1500 measurements of each eye. Our patients are screened using this revolutionary device which allows our optometrists to produce prescriptions which give optimum vision in all lighting conditions. For our contact lens patients, the iProfiler plus ensures the highest degree of accuracy possible in contact lens fitting.
Its main features include:
Precise custom made contact lenses offering unparalleled levels of comfort and vision.
Each patient’s prescription can vary according to the level of light available eg sunlight or dusk. This means traditional spectacle lenses have not always provided ultimate vision in conditions such as driving at night or in very bright daylight. The combination of iProfiler technology and Zeiss iScription bespoke lenses lenses can improve this.
Since the dawn of optics, lenses could only be as accurate as the hand that measured them, until now.
All our custom made lenses are measured within a tenth of a millimetre using the i.Terminal. This ensures the most optimal lens fit every time resulting in more comfortable vision, a wider field of view and superior levels of satisfaction compared to traditional hand measured lenses.
This highly accurate service is included at no extra cost with all our tailored lenses.
