* EXTRA TESTS *
- Retinal Imaging- We take a photograph of the back of the eye (Retina) which enables us to closely examine the health of the vessels that supply the eye, the Optic Disc where the vessels come together and the Macula (which has a high density of cone cells for Colour Vision) In addition to this we can also detect conditions such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol.
- Glaucoma Risk Assessment- We have designed a simple questionnaire that we go through together to ascertain your risk to Glaucoma. In addition we use the Latest Technology to measure the Pressure within your eye on every patient. This is a vital test in detecting Glaucoma.
