State of the Art Optometry Technology
When Paul Brown purchased the practice in 2018, much of the equipment was updated to state of the art technology. Maleny Optometry are now able to offer the following pieces of technology to help detect and monitor a wide range of eye conditions.
Computerised Visual Field Testing
Visual field defects can be caused by anything that damages or interferes with any part of the visual system.
Causes of visual field defects include diseases of the retina, diseases such as glaucoma, strokes and other brain injuries.
Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT is a sophisticated system that produces highly detailed images of the internal structures of your eyes.
Whilst other testing procedures show the surface of your eyes, an OCT scan differs in that it reveals what is below the surface of your eye in particular the macular, retina and optic nerve.
Using this cutting edge technology Maleny Optical can more accurately identify and treat eye disease and conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and optic nerve damage.
Retinal imaging enables us to capture a digital image of the retina, blood vessels and optical nerve located in the back of your eyes.
Retinal Imaging aids in the early detection and management of diseases that can affect both your eyes and overall health. This can include glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.
Tonometry and Pachymetry
We have state of the art pieces of equipment to get an exact measurement of eye pressure, enabling us to detect your glaucoma risk more easily. This includes a gentle puff or if this is unsuitable, I care pulse tonometry – no puff required.
