We recommend all adults, especially those over the age of 40, have a comprehensive eye examination every 2 years.
At Mt Annan Eyecare, you can expect that a comprehensive eye examination includes thorough eye health assessments and determination of how your visual system works.
Functional evaluation also establishes how your eyes team, or work together, to help you see.
Regular eye examinations also play an important role in the early detection of eye diseases. If you are diabetic or have a family history of age-related macular degeneration (MD), glaucoma or cataracts you may be at a higher risk for developing these conditions.
Several key signs of eye strain include sore or tired eyes, itching and burning sensations in the eyes, sensitivity to light, dry or watery eyes, focusing difficulties, headaches, back and neck aches.
21st century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Given our highly technological society, many adults constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Intensive school and job related tasks can create great visual stress.
Mt Annan Eyecare has invested in state of the art optical equipment to provide you with the most comprehensive eye health testing available today.
Mt Annan Eyecare offers Digital Retinal Imaging, where a high-resolution digital photograph is taken of the back interior portion of your eye called the retina.
The screening can show abnormalities that may threaten normal vision such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
It also provides invaluable baselines, that become part of your record so we can closely monitor even the slightest progression of any abnormalities, from one exam to the next.
We offer OCT scanning, which is a sophisticated scanning system that provides highly detailed images of the internal structures of the eye.
Whilst other testing procedures show the surface of your retina, an OCT scan differs in that it reveals what is below its surface. An OCT scan also measures the thickness of your retinal nerve fibre layer, a measurement that is a reliable indicator of the health of the optic nerve.
We use this technology as part of our consultations ,as we can detect eye disease early and monitor your eye health optimally.
