James Ernest Optometry boasts a comprehensive suite of advanced diagnostic ophthalmic imaging rarely seen in community settings. In addition we are also able to provide expert interpretation, evaluation and reporting.
Accurate measurement of key ocular biometrics such as axial length and anterior chamber depth is critical in cataract surgery as well in the management of myopia. We are proud to utilise the gold standard in optical biometry, the Zeiss IOLMaster 500.
Perimetry is the measurement of visual field function. Defects in central and peripheral visual fields may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, brain tumours and neurological deficits. We are proud to utilise the gold standard in automated perimetry, the Zeiss Humphrey Visual Field Analyser.
OCT is a non invasive imaging technique that uses reflected light to image the retina in great detail from the vitreoretinal interface right through to the choroid. It has become the standard of care for the detection and diagnosis of a variety of macula and optic nerve diseases.
We routinely use Goldmann Applanation Tonometry for the measurment of intraocular pressure (IOP). This method is both more accurate and comfortable than non contact, 'puff of air' methods.
Corneal Topography is critical in specialist medical contact lens fitting, Orthokeratology as well as the detection and management of corneal conditions such as Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration and Keratoglobus.
A picture speaks a thousand words. Digital retinal photography is an established retinal imaging modality to enable close monitoring of retinal details. It has become fundamental to modern day diabetic retinal screening.
