The very latest technological developments allow us to examine your eye health more thoroughly than during a regular eye examination and to a degree that would not have seemed possible just a few years ago. In keeping with our policy of continually monitoring and investing in the very latest optical products and innovations we have installed the following state of the art systems from Optos® who are leading providers of diagnostic and treatment devices for eye care.
The Optomap Retinal Exam is used to get an ultra-wide field view of the retina (the back of the eye). While eye exams generally include an examination of the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.
With our Optomap® 200DX Digital Retinal Imaging Scanner, we can not only examine the whole of the back of your eye in incredible detail, but we can show these images to you and email them to your consultant or doctor, together with any referral you may need. This can lead to early detection of common diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. The exam is quick, painless, and will not require dilation drops.

The Optomap story: In 1990, 5 year old Leif Anderson went blind in one eye due to an undiagnosed retinal detachment. He was getting regular eye exams, but conventional tests available at the time made a thorough examination difficult. Distressed by the diagnostic methods available, Leif’s father, Douglas, designed the optomap Retinal imaging scanner.

The Optos Spectral OCT SLO™ scanning system combines industry leading spectral OCT imaging with a confocal scanning ophthalmoscope (SLO) in one highly advanced instrument and allows the diagnosis and tracking of changes in the most complex retinal diseases, such as Galucoma and Macular degeneration, together with their treatments.
With our state of the art Spectral OCT SLO™ scanner, Your macular and optic nerve health can now be also monitored. The exam is quick, painless, and can sometimes be done without dilation drops.
