Dry & Watery Eye Assessment
This is for those who suffer any of the following:
The in-depth assessment evaluates the type and severity of Dry Eye Syndrome using a combination of the following:
Tear film analysis using the Medmont Tear Analyser
Provides valuable data on the Quality of the Tear Film Surface. With video capture and playback it allows you to see the dynamics of the Tear Film Surface. Itís valuable for both initial diagnosis and for monitoring the effects of treatment.
Infrared light is used to image the Meibomian Glands in the eye lids. These glands produce oil for the tear film. Examination using this technique gives information on the structure of the glands and can show if damage to them has taken place.
Slit Lamp Image Capture
To examine your eyes in high magnification we use an instrument which has an integrated camera and video. The Haag Streit video slit lamp allows the condition of your eyes to be accurately recorded. We review these images with you to show and explain more about your particular diagnosis.
Lacrimal Probing & Syringing
This is undertaken if a suspected blockage to drainage of tears is suspected. The test checks to see whether there is obstruction to tears being able to drain away. The eye is numbed and a cannula is used to syringe saline through the tear drainage ducts. Should a potential blockage be found, onward referral for further treatment is discussed and arranged as necessary.
