Every patient of Clear Optometry receives a comprehensive and detailed examination of the health of their eyes, along with a thorough assessment of their vision. An initial examination usually takes around 45 minutes and can includes tests such as the following:-
Digital retinal photography - Retinal photography, or scanning, provides a highly detailed and accurate view of the retina, including the macula, optic nerve and retinal blood vessels. It is a vital tool in assessing the health of the eye and in tracking subtle changes over time. All retinal images are stored for future comparison purposes.
Optical Coherence Tomography - OCT scanning provides a deeper, even more detailed view of the eye than digital retinal photography. Using a special wavelength of light, the OCT scanner can provide detailed 3D images of the delicate tissues of the eye, assisting greatly with the early detection and assessment of diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Measurement of intra-ocular pressure (tonometry). This is one of the tests performed to check for glaucoma. At Clear Optometry we have both non-contact (which uses a ‘puff’ of air) and contact (which requires anaesthetic drops) tonometry. Both options are non-invasive and will cause little discomfort.
Auto-refractrometry/keratometry. Our advanced Nidek Tonoref II provides an accurate approximation of the spectacle prescription, which assists in determining your final prescription. It also measures corneal curvatures which are useful for fitting contact lenses.
Subjective refraction. This is the process whereby we determine the prescription by showing a series of images and using various lenses to find the correction that provides the best vision.
Binocular vision testing. As well as seeing clearly individually, it is vital that the eyes work in conjunction with one another. Binocular vision testing involves performing a series of tests to assess how well the eyes coordinate and to determine whether corrective lenses or vision training may be beneficial. Binocular vision testing is important at all ages. However, it is particularly vital for children as the visual system is still developing and is significant in a child’s ability to learn effectively.
Slit lamp examination. The slit lamp provides a highly magnified view of the structures that make up the front of the eye, including the cornea, iris and lens. It is used to assess conditions such as cataracts, corneal dystrophies, ocular infections and allergies. With the addition of a fundus lens it is also used to obtain a detailed 3D view of the retina at the back of the eye.
A range of other tests may be conducted when indicated, such as the following:
