Ocular Health Check
Early Detection of Eye Disease can prevent damage to the structures of the eye and prevent future blindness. At Granata Eyecare, as part of our comprehensive eye examinations we take high resolution retinal images of all our patients to assess for diseases such as Macula Degeneration and Glaucoma. Digital Retinal Imaging can also aid in diagnosing and managing changes to the back of your eye if you suffer from Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. The optometrists at Granata Eyecare are equipped with state of the art equipment, and use this technology in diagnosing and managing diseases such as Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma. For more information your Optometrist is happy to discuss the procedure with you.
Also known as OrthoK, Overnight Vision Correction or Corneal Refractive Therapy, refers to the use of a Rigid Gas Permeable contact lens to temporarily modify the shape of the cornea. The contact lenses are worn overnight, and removed upon waking, resulting in clear lasting vision throughout the day. Orthokeratology can be used as an alternative to glasses and refractive eye surgery. Recent studies have also shown evidence of reducing the progression of myopia (Short-sightedness) with the use of Orthokeratology. Please contact us for further information.
Myopia, or short-sightedness, is a condition where far away objects appear blurry. The condition is significantly on the rise around the world and it particularly affects over 95% of young adults in Asia. Myopia is a complex condition influenced by genetics of the individual as well as environmental and lifestyle factors. Delaying the onset, and minimising the progression, of myopia will help to minimise the risks of eye disease associated with higher levels of myopia.
At our new Myopia Clinic, we provide a service to identify people who are at high risk of development or progression of myopia and offer individualised testing and latest evidence-based treatments to slow down or halt the progression of myopia. Management is tailored to each patient and includes a range of options such as atropine eye drops, orthokeratology, multifocal contact lenses and multifocal glasses.
Assessing Children’s vision goes beyond ensuring they can see 20/20 or 6/6. At Granata Eyecare we are proficient in testing children from as young as 6 months old and ensure that your child’s vision is focussed in each eye and that there is good eye movement control as well as normal visual perception.
