CLINICAL EYE HEALTH SERVICES
We provide specialist eye health services for patients with specific sight issues.
Patients with certain conditions require more specialist treatment and careful monitoring of the condition of their eyes. Those diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma, and other ocular conditions are welcome to visit our facilities where our expert optometrists will take you through all aspects of prevention, treatment and care.
Glaucoma Referral Refinement Scheme
This involves a more comprehensive field test and we use a Goldman Tonometer (to measure the pressure inside your eye) this is the gold standard of equipment used in hospital eye departments. We also perform a dilated pupil examination of the retina.
Ocular Hypertensive Monitoring Service
This is available for people displaying the signs of a higher risk of glaucoma, you will be discharged by the local eye department into our care for monitoring of the condition.
Pre-cataract Assessment Service
We conduct direct referrals to patient choice NHS call centres for referral to a hospital eye department for a cataract assessment and possible operation.
Full Threshold Fields
Full threshold field tests are used when there is a need to accurately measure the depth of any visual field loss. Often, a consultant will ask for these measurements as part of monitoring visual field defects and we are able to establish if there has been any change in the defect.
