DIGITAL BIOMICROSCOPY

EYE IMAGING

Our consulting rooms are fully equipped with the very latest ultra- high definition digital biomicroscopes that allow us to capture unparalleled images of the front structures of your eye including the tear film and complex glands that contribute to its production.

Dry eye?

Using infrared imaging, we are able to examine the Meibomium glands that make up the lipid layer of the tear film. This technology allows us determine the severity of dry eye for each patient, and provide a tailored treatment plan to restore the natural production of lipids and tears.

Cataracts?

The decision on when to consider cataract surgery is always a difficult one, as no surgical procedure is without some element of risk. Using the latest digital biomicroscopy imaging we can now accurately photograph and document cataract development, ensuring that the right clinical decisions are made on when surgical intervention is appropriate.

Typical conditions requiring digital microscope imaging:

  • Cataract development
  • Glaucoma (monitoring special channels that drain the fluid in the eye)
  • Dry eye management plans
  • Abnormal skin changes around the eyelids – Basal cell carcinomas (BCC) are not uncommon on our eyelids, and using digital microscopy we can accurately and quickly diagnose changes to skin lesions.
