Our Technology

At Eyes on Edward our Eye Examination Technology includes

The test is simple, quick and painless. In most cases dilation drops are not required for this retinal exam. A totally non-invasive eye test, you simply look into the machine and a comfortable flash is all that’s seen when the Optos machine takes its image. An Optos retinal exam is safe for all members of the family, in fact it is recommended due to the benefits of being able to thoroughly check the back of the eye. Things that may go undetected with conventional eye examinations can be picked up by an Optomap, especially important for early detection of vision problems in children.

Early signs of eye diseases or disorders can be detected on the ultra wide retinal scan long before any symptoms develop. These may include:

  • glaucoma

  • diabetic retinopathy

  • detachment or tears in the retina

  • age-related macular degeneration.

Since the blood vessels can be seen directly in the retina, other more general health conditions may be noticed, for example the potential for heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Irregularities in blood pressure can be picked up and even the conditions for a stroke might be seen in the eye and possibly avoided.

At Eyes on Edward, we are pleased to offer the Optos Optomap scanner as part of our commitment to bring you the best services and technology to take care of your vision. Come and experience the most comfortable and easy retina exam available.

Digital Photography

"A picture tells a thousand words". Recent technological advancements in eyecare now enable us to capture a digital image of the retina, blood vessels and optic nerve located at the back of your eyes. This simple, painless test takes a few minutes to complete and aids in early detection and management of diseases that can affect both your eyes and overall health. This includes glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, and hypertension.

Corneal Topography

Computerised corneal topography allows us to take a video image of reflections from the cornea and derive the shape and regularity of the surface.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

People often experience changes in their vision when they reach their 40s. To look out for the early signs of eye conditions, in case there’s a more serious problem, we use an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) device. This device is a non-invasive imaging unit that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

Field of Vision

Some eye conditions, such as glaucoma, will affect peripheral vision long before central vision is reduced. The most accurate evaluation of your peripheral vision is with computerised perimetry to measure the sensitivity of your field of vision.
