State-of-the-art eye health and diagnostics.
by: Catherine Tromp on
As a locally owned & operated Optometrist in Noosa we don't pay any franchise fees. We would rather re-invested into specialized equipment and services for our clients. Here are some examples of where we've re-invested into eye health and diagnostics.
Each instrument has it's own specialized application. All together, they form a central and comprehensive eye testing and diagnostic facility.
Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT
A sophisticated scanning system (costing around the same as a luxury car), the Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT produces highly detailed 3D images of the internal structures of your eyes. It is particularly useful in assessing and recording macular health, but can also be used to view all the other structures of the eye in great detail.
OCT could be compared to MRI or an ultrasound of the eye and it allows our Optometrists to view the deepest layers of your eyes, not visible with other testing equipment.
Results generated by the Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT are accepted and preferred by Ophthalmologists meaning you won't need to repeat tests unnecessarily.
Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyser
The Zeiss HFA provides our Optometrist with specific information on the status of your vision, in particular, the parts of your peripheral or side vision that you may not even be aware of. Particularly useful in this machine is the ability to compare results over time and gain a better understanding of the progression of a patient's glaucoma into the future.
Unlike basic field analysers, results generated by the Zeiss HFA are accepted and preferred by Ophthalmologists meaning you won't need to repeat tests unnecessarily.
Canon High Resolution Digital Retinal Camera
Fundus imaging is essentially a digital photograph of the inside of the eye. It provides a clear and precise record of the retina which assists in better management and diagnosis of health conditions effecting the retina.
Our camera has a much higher resolution than standard cameras meaning better diagnostic capabilities along with smoother operation.
Topcon Autorefractor / Keratometer
Capturing a fast and accurate digital prescription is one of the first steps to achieving the best possible vision correction. This machine completes up to eleven different measurements of your eye's focusing ability and the shape of your cornea in a matter of seconds.
Our Topcon Autorefractor gives our Optometrists the ability to provide high quality patient care, starting with premium diagnostics.
Rodenstock Non-contact Tonometer
Non-contact tonometry (NCT) is probably the most memorable part of your last eye test with us - the puff of air! Still a very useful and quick test, this machine has the ability to quickly screen for abnormal internal eye pressures which is usually in indicator of an underlying eye health issue.
We love to be able to work with advanced equipment because it gives us confidence in what we do.
If you would like more detailed information or would like a personal tour of each machine, call us and we'd be delighted to show you around!
