We have been committed to providing the most advanced eye examination possible for over 30 years. That’s why we have invested in the best ophthalmic technology from the world leaders in eyecare, ZEISS.
Exactly 175 years ago, ZEISS was founded. Carl Zeiss’ small workshop for precision mechanics and optics in Jena has grown into an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in the fields of optics and electronics.
With a wide variety of products and innovative solutions, this enables us to keep providing you with the most advanced testing facilities possible.
This revolutionary procedure is similar to an MRI scan for the eyes. The OCT takes a 3D image allowing the optometrist to see, sometimes for the first time, problems within your eye that could not have easily be seen before.
What can you see with the OCT?
The retina can be damaged by many common diseases such as: Glaucoma, Diabetes and Age Related Macular Degeneration. Damage to the retina can lead to visual impairment or even blindness. Using OCT we can pick up any problems at a much earlier stage, usually allowing you better treatment options and a better visual outcome.
The test is very simple, takes just a few seconds and is completely non-contact; there are no sudden puffs of air or light flashes. Any areas that may be unusual can be measured and later repeat scans can be lined up with the original and any changes can be seen and measured.
The Optomap Daytona scanner is the latest addition to our specialist equipment. It produces a full wide-angle view of your retina in a quarter of a second, enabling us to identify the smallest potential problem.
Using Optomap puts ZEISS Vision + Eyecare into the top 5% of optical practices in the UK.
Traditional retinal photography has been a useful tool at ZEISS Vision + Eyecare for many years but it has a very limited application. These more advanced instruments allow us to check the health of your eyes much more thoroughly and with unparalleled precision. The Optomap takes a photograph of 80% of your retina. A ‘normal’ retinal photograph captures a max of 15% of your retina.
The Optomap consists of several retinal photographs each will take just under half a second to take. It is completely non-contact; there are no sudden puffs of air or light flashes. It is not painful or intrusive. Any areas that may be unusual can be measured and later repeat photo’s can be lined up with the original and any changes can be seen and measured.
As the gold standard of perimetry, the Humphrey® Field Analyser provides us with trusted diagnostics.
The HFA is an automatic perimeter which is intended to be used to measure the visual field of the eye. The HFA will identify visual field defects for
the purposes of screening, monitoring, and assisting in the diagnosis and management of ocular diseases such as glaucoma and related neurological disorders. The results allow us to offer the highest standard of care in the detection and management of glaucoma.
In particular, Guided Progression Analysis (GPA™), provides an overview of your entire visual field history. The results are invaluable when detecting any abnormalities like glaucoma.
The i.Profiler plus by ZEISS provides all the necessary data to fully evaluate the refractive status of your eyes.
This provides us with a detailed visual profile unique to your individual visual needs. The result, ZEISS lenses with i.scription technology.
The i.Profiler plus enables us to prescribe ZEISS Lenses with i.Scription Technology, using the generated ‘fingerprint’ measurement of each eye. To find out more about i.Scription lenses.
The i.Profiler plus consists of several measurements to be taken usually in less than 30 seconds. There is a general requirement that the patient be able to sit upright and be able to place his or her face on the chin and forehead rest of the instrument.
