Perfect vision does not always equate to healthy eyes.
An eye test allows changes to be noted before you do.
COMMITTED TO EXCELLENT EYE CARE
Mrs Best has 30+ years of experience in every aspect of Optometry including Hospital, Research, General Practice and Screening in the Community and Schools. This allows her to optimize the quality of vision and ensure healthy eyes for the whole family.
We use the latest diagnostic instruments including digital photography and OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography).
Checks for optic-nerve integrity and measures how well you see out of each corner of your eyes.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)
Scans the back of the eye to check the health of each layer of the retina and optic nerve for conditions such as Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration.
This modern technology, that does not even require drops to dilate pupils, allows me to go beyond a standard eye test to detect subtle changes years before they become sight-threatening
Glaucoma type damage may be detected before non-reversible peripheral vision changes occur.
Small changes at the macula, the critical seeing part of the eye, may be found early to avoid visual loss.
This irreversible disease, that affects peripheral vision gradually, may be thought of as “The thief of sight”. Early detection allows prompt treatment and better long term outcome.
This common condition may affect both central and peripheral vision. Early detection reduces risk of sight loss in 90% of patients with diabetic retinopathy.
Loss of detail in the central portion of what you see may affect face-recognition and DVLA Driving requirements.
COMPUTER VISION SYNDROME
Digital eye strain is increasingly associated with ocular fatigue, chronic dry eyes and inability to maintain focus on the screen
