At Optical In Sight Doncaster, we offer numerous vision tests and services including:
Dry Eye Assessment, High Res Retinal Imaging, Eye Health test, Colour visual test and visual field.
General symptoms of dry eye include dryness, burning, foreign body sensation, stinging, grittiness, light sensitivity, and blurriness.
Our latest diagnostic machine (Oculus 3M) will help us continue to improve, properly diagnose and treat your type of dry eyes.
It takes into account your quantitative measurement of tear film, high-quality imaging with fluoro eye drops, quality of tear lipid layer, quality of glands that produces your tear film.
Eye diseases can often be detected at an early stage if high-resolution images of the retina are available.
Family history of any ocular diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma or other retinal conditions may warrant a visit to our office. On arrival, your retina can be assessed thoroughly. This can also be used to monitor the progression of certain eye conditions.
We use a trusted Topcon Zeiss with a Nikon camera to document retinal findings. We will recommend this for you should we feel that you need it.
As a standard of our practice, we perform comprehensive fundus and anterior eye examinations. Moreover, our staff routinely check your vision.
We prefer to focus on prevention, rather than cure.
All our doctors are trained at The University of Melbourne with therapeutical endorsement.
We also offer Orthokeratology, children’s eye assessment, as well as post-operative care, detection and management of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and managing diabetes eye problems.
Colour blindness can be difficult to detect. Particularly in children with inherited colour vision deficiency. The child may be unaware of any problems with their colour vision. A child with a severe condition, such as deuteranopia, may seemingly be able to accurately identify colours which they can’t see (e.g. red). This is because they have been taught the colour of objects from an early age. They will know for example that grass is green and strawberries are red even if they have no concept of their true colours.
There are many tests available to measure colour vision defects. The most common is the Ishihara Plate test.
During a routine eye exam, some eye doctors may want to determine through visual field testing the full horizontal and vertical range of what you are able to see peripherally. This range is commonly referred to as “side vision.”
Visual field tests assess the potential presence of blind spots (scotomas), which could indicate eye diseases. A blind spot in the field of vision can be linked to a variety of specific eye diseases, depending on the size and shape of the scotoma.
