Vision Camberwell Optometrists - Melbourne, Vic: innovative technology

Innovative Technology in Eyecare

Vision Camberwell is equipped with the latest in digital imaging devices to better care for the health of your eyes. We are committed to continual upskilling and updating our practice with leading innovations in eye care. 

OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT) 

OCT is a diagnostic scanning imaging device providing high quality cross-sectional images of various structures of the eye. These scans are evaluated by our highly trained optometrists to provide unique information regarding ocular health. OCT scans are particularly important in the early detection and monitoring of diseases such glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.

Anterior OCT scans are an important part of the design process when fitting miniscleral contact lenses. 

DIGITAL SLIT LAMP PHOTOGRAPHY  

A computer-integrated digital imaging system incorporated in a slit lamp provides a detailed view of the front of the eye to clearly record your current eye health.  Slit Lamp Photography assists in the detection and management of problems such as pterygium, conjunctivitis, allergies, dry eye, foreign bodies, corneal ulcers, keratoconus, corneal grafts, contact lens fittings and cataract.  

DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY

A computer-integrated digital imaging system provides a detailed view of the back of the eye to clearly record your current eye health.  We recommend that all our patients receive this test.  Digital Retinal Photography assists in the detection and management of problems such as glaucoma, diabetes, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, optic nerve disease, retinal disease and unusual retinal pigmentation.

CORNEAL ULTRASOUND or PACHYMETRY  

Using the same ultrasound technology that we use on other parts of the body e.g. during pregnancy, we can accurately measure the corneal thickness.  An accurate measure of corneal thickness is important in assessing the risk of developing glaucoma, for assessing patients for laser refractive surgery and to monitor corneal thinning diseases.  

CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY

Corneal topography is measuring the shape of the cornea.  The cornea is the transparent dome-shaped window covering the front part of the eye and has the biggest effect on the focusing power of the eye.  Corneal topography is essential for fitting contact lenses and to monitor the corneal shape in keratoconus or after a corneal transplant.
