Maroubra Optometrist – Digital Retinal Imaging
We routinely use the “state of the art” Kowa retinal camera to document the state of health of the back (retina) of the eye. The camera has two angles for photographing the retina which can be magnified up to 200 times. This instrument, in most cases, eliminates the need for the discomfort associated with pupil dilation. This technology can reveal some retinal disorders that may otherwise have gone undetected such as glaucoma, diabetic complications and macular degeneration.
With our retinal imaging camera we are able to obtain valuable images of your eye analyse them and store them for future comparison.
Maroubra Optometrist – Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT is useful in diagnosing many eye conditions, including: age-related macular degeneration, retinal changes from Diabetes, central serous retinopathy. OCT is often used to evaluate disorders of the optic nerve as well. The OCT exam helps us to see changes to the nerve fibres of the optic nerve. For example, it can detect changes caused by glaucoma.
Maroubra Optometrist – Macular Degeneration
Is anything more precious than our sight?
Macular Degeneration (MD) is the leading cause of blindness in Australia, affecting central vision. MD is primarily age related and most frequently affects people over the age of 50. One in seven people over the age of 50 are affected by the disease and the incidence increases with age. It is sometimes referred to as Age Related Macular Degeneration or ‘AMD’.

Maroubra Optometrist – Lenses
These innovative lenses have the built-in ability to change from being clear to becoming sunglasses by automatically turning dark when exposed to sunlight. This reduces the need to carry around a pair of sunglasses or keep up with a clip-on sunglass attachment.
Polarized lenses work by blocking the components of light that cause glare. Come in for a demonstration and to see for yourself the difference these lenses can make to your visual comfort.
Glare is reduced even further by adding an anti-reflective coating on the back surface of your polarized prescription sunglasses.
