The binocular slit-lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions. A second, hand-held lens is used to examine the retina. A slit-lamp exam is usually done during a regular checkup with your eye doctor before the cataract surgery procedure.
NC Tonometer is used to perform Tonometry. Tonometry is a quick and simple test that checks the pressure inside your eyes. The results can help your doctor see if you're at risk for glaucoma. The pressure inside your eye is called intraocular pressure (IOP).
This lens provides ultra resolution with radinal image with the binocular indirect ophthalmoscope during clinical practice or in the operating room.
Ophthalmoscopy is a test that look at the back of the eye called the fundus. The fundus consists of the retina, optic disc and blood vessels.
A direct ophthalmoscope is a device that produces an unreversed or upright image of around 15 x magnification.
An indirect ophthalmoscope produces a reversed or inverted image with 2 to 5 x magnification.
Orthoptics is a profession allied to the eye care profession. Orthoptists are the experts in diagnosing and treating defects in eye movements and problems with how the eyes work together, called binocular vision. These can be caused by issues with the muscles around the eyes or defects in the nerves enabling the brain to communicate with the eyes. Orthoptists are responsible for the diagnosis and non-surgical management of strabismus (squint), amblyopia (lazy eye) and eye movement disorders.
The prism cover test has been in use for many years for measuring ocular alignment. The measurements obtained are used for both calculating ...
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an imaging method used to generate a picture of the back of the eye, called the retina. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. The OCT is an excellent way to visualize the different layers of the retina and optic nerve in the eye. OCT is routinely used during check-up of patients with glaucoma.
An operating surgical microscope is the most important optical instrument in the modern era of ophthalmic surgeries. It provides the surgeon with a magnified and illuminated high-quality image of the small ophthalmic structures. Being binocular the surgical microscopes gives the additional benefit of high-quality stereoscopy. Our microscopes are high-end with video recording facilities.
Several eye conditions can affect children. Signs that indicate a child may have vision problems include:
Any of the above symptoms or complaints from your child should not be neglected. Some eye conditions and diseases are hereditary and can affect your child as well. Consult your child’s doctor or an ophthalmologist at the earliest for early detection and treatment of eye disorders.
While the brain is 90% structurally developed by the time a child turns one year old, the functional development of the brain is a continuous process which also depends on learning and information. In a similar manner, a child’s eyes and the connections between the eye and the brain are also immature and still growing. This growth and maturity can get affected by poor vision due to various causes, and can lead to a condition known as lazy eye or amblyopia, where one of the eyes or less commonly both eyes do not reach its full visual potential. If the cause of lazy eye is not corrected in time, it can lead to permanent loss of vision. Treatment of the cause at a later age cannot restore vision in the lazy eye.
Causes for lazy eye include:
