Welcome to the Institute of Medical Retina
We would appreciate your collaboration with the following recommendations.
At every appointment, please ensure to bring:
Your Medicare card with valid expiry date
A current list of all medications you are taking at each visit (if any)
If you wear glasses, please bring them to your appointment
If you wear contact lenses, you must remove them prior to your visit
Eye Procedures completed in the clinic
If you are in need of an eye injection or a laser procedure at the clinic, we do not recommended you drive yourself home. Please arrange for alternate transportation.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
This is an important device in the management of diseases of the retina. OCT imaging often provides detection of certain conditions sooner than a conventional or basic eye examination. Early detection will minimize chances of experiencing permanent vision loss. This device can detect ocular conditions such as:
Central retinal disease, Retinal Holes or thinning, Optic Nerve Disease such as Glaucoma, Pre-cancerous lesions, Macular degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy
Angiography is a diagnostic test in which a rapid sequence of images are taken to identify whether the blood circulation of the retina/choroid has any blockages.
Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy
The optomap produces a digital image of the retina using scanning laser technology. It can capture an 82% view of the retina in one session. It can assist with earlier detection in diseases of the retina.
B-scan ultrasonography is used to provide information about the lens, vitreous, retina, choroid, sclera and orbit. This exam is completed by applying a probe over the eyelid to detect certain abnormalities which are not easily captured on other devices or to provide complimentary information to confirm a diagnosis.
