This highly advanced technology allows us to closely examine your retina, using the Wide View ZEISS Clarus. The Clarus allows us to see up to a 200% larger area of your retina than older technology. Any eye examination should always screen for abnormalities or disease including a careful look at the retina, it’s blood supply, and the optic nerve. The retina and the optic nerve are located at the back of the eye and connect the eye to the brain.
They are susceptible to a variety of diseases including macular degeneration and glaucoma, which can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness.
Early detection of any retinal abnormality is crucial, and this is usually done by dilating the pupils and recording the information gathered on your patient record. The increased information that can be gathered and stored by this new technology enables us to detect subtle changes earlier and diagnose disease sooner.
Any changes to your eye heath are easier to recognise and should you relocate, this data can be supplied to your new practitioner.
We will discuss the results of this revolutionary examination with you. We are dedicated to offering you the best eye care possible using the best tools. We look forward to seeing during your next visit – and providing the most comprehensive and advanced vision care available. In children it enhances our ability to detect and record degenerations caused by nearsightedness, infections and injuries.
