PREMIUM OPTICAL TECHNOLOGY
WE PROVIDE QUALITY EYE TESTS IN BERKHAMSTED THAT CAN INCLUDE:
- VISUAL DISPLAY UNIT SCREENING
Are you on a screen for most of your working day? If the answer to this is yes then you may discover that your employer should be covering the cost of a regular optical examination. If it is discerned that you need specs for your computer or visual display unit (VDU) work then your employer may also be required to pick up this cost.
- THE AUTOREFRACTOR
This is a piece of kit that takes an electronic measurement of your eyes. It gives the optometrist an idea of your prescription before they carry out the test. It also helps to diagnose the final prescription.
- THE PHOTOROPTER
We use the phoropter instead of the traditional trial frame and lenses because it is much more comfortable and our clients definitely prefer it. The phoropter is used as a lens correction device and is placed in front of the eyes just as a pair of spectacles would be. The optometrist measures the refractive error of the vision and deduces the correct prescription from the results.
- COMPUTERISED TEST CHART
As a highly accurate and versatile alternative to the traditional test chart you may be familiar with, our Topcon computerised facility makes the whole eye test experience much simpler.
- VISUAL FIELD SCREENER
This screening test is concerned with the fields of vision. Sometimes referred to as the auto-perimeter, this test is useful when it comes to making an assessment of overall optical health. It is useful in spotting the early symptoms of several damaging conditions.
- DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Thanks to this modern technology, we can take a photograph of the back of the eye and assess vision health. When we conduct an advanced vision test we take a scan of the retina that helps us detect the precursors to many conditions such as macular degeneration and macular holes.
- GLAUCOMA SCREENING
When it comes to measuring the pressure in your eyes, we use a non-contact tonometer. This gives the optometrist an idea of whether or not glaucoma is present or imminent.
We also offer advanced eye examinations
