Every Optical Express clinic features the laser technology that led NASA to approve the surgery for its astronauts.
Fundus photography allows us to capture a high resolution image of the retina, the back surface of the eye. A specialist camera is used to capture the central and peripheral retina, the optic disc and the macula.
The Clinician will review the photograph of the fundus and use this in conjunction with a detailed slit lamp examination of the retina to understand the patients’ retinal health. The health of the retina is a good indicator of not only the patients’ eye health but also their general health.
The Zeiss Clarus Wide Angle Fundus Camera is able to capture clear ultra-widefield images so that the clinician can view parts of the retina can’t be viewed with standard Fundus photography.
The OPMI Lumera Dual Scope Microscope gives our Surgeons crystal clear visualisation during the procedure and gives them the option of using live OCT images intraoperatively. This means our IOL surgery is quicker and more precise than ever before.
The LASIK treatments at Optical Express are carried out using the IntraLase method, which creates a protective flap at the beginning of treatment. This is an all-laser technique, which utilises the advanced technology of the IntraLase iFS 150 femtosecond laser. Optical Express is the only nationwide provider to offer this in every treatment clinic.
The iFS 150 offers increased speed and control, superseding the laser technology offered by other providers. Since providing this technology, with its heightened precision, reduced treatment time and faster results, our patients are more satisfied than ever.
