We really believe in offering you top quality eye care and taking our time to do it properly. Rest assured that if there are any problems, we will spot them. Firstly, you’ll be asked some questions about your overall eye health, family history and any changes in your vision since your last check-up.
You’ll then have a series of checks using the latest, advanced eye care technology. As well as advising you if you need help with your vision, we’ll check your eyes for signs of serious eye conditions, like glaucoma or macular degeneration.
Advanced Retinal Photography and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
Taking the time to listen, learn and offer comprehensive solutions.
We Value Patient Relationships.
No two sets of eyes are the same, so to help this we tailor our eye exams to suit different age groups.
OCT – The Ultimate Eye Examination
With certain eye conditions, the faster you act, the more you protect. That’s why we recommend OCT as part of your regular eye test in Perivale. It can help us detect sight-threatening issues up to 5 years before traditional testing methods, and many years before you notice any change in your vision yourself.
What is OCT?
Optical Coherence Tomography technology is used to scan the back of the eye using a laser that takes 50,000 scans per second so we can capture a 3D model of the retina, enabling us to see things that the human eye cannot – including our eagle-eyed optometrists!
This means we can spot abnormalities up to 5 years before a traditional test.
It can spot early signs of:
Common eye conditions such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Glaucoma, Diabetes.
The sooner we detect them, the sooner we can help you treat them.
That’s not the only clever bit, for patients that have regular repeat scans the software then does a lot of clever calculations and can spot trends to further aid early diagnosis.
Honest Professional Advice
Once the tests have been completed, Jaimin will discuss the findings and relate these to any symptoms you may have. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
If you need help with your eyesight, Jaimin and our Dispensing Optician Ruqayya (or Ruqs as we know her) will discuss a suitable solution to meet your visual needs.
Of course, we hope there won’t be any serious problems, but if there are, you can be sure we’ll discuss them with you clearly and sensitively.
Not everyone’s sight changes from year to year, so we’ll give you honest advice about this too.
