Bespoke Eye Tests
Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre we are committed to providing a comprehensive and personal eye care service. Our team of specialist practitioners use to the latest technology. We ensure that we give you the most thorough eye health examination possible. Whether you require a standard NHS test that covers basic eye health checks and spectacle prescribing. Or bespoke eye tests, by way of the latest advanced eye imaging assessments, we are proud to look after your eyes and individual needs.
What is OCT?
Our latest technology is the OCT scanner. Which takes a 3D cross sectional scan of the different layers of the retina and optic nerve. It is similar to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computer Aided Tomography (CAT) scan. By examining these underlying structures, we can see perhaps for the first time, what is going on under the retina and assess optic nerve health. With our bespoke eye tests, we may pick up problems within your eye that could not be easily noticed before, even by you. This helps us with detection of a number of eye health issues at a much earlier stage. In particular Macula Degeneration and Glaucoma. This technology also allows us to monitor progression objectively.
What is Optomap?
This technology takes your eye examination to a new level. By viewing over 80% of your retina compared to 15-20% achievable with traditional methods. The basic NHS examination is only funded to check 15-20% of the retina. The condition of the retina mirrors the health of the body. It can indicate signs of other diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension. Furthermore, an ultra-widefield scan of the retina can detect small holes or tears which otherwise can lead to full retinal detachment without treatment. This is why our eye care professionals strongly recommend an Optomap examination. The procedure is painless, there are no drops required, so you can drive afterwards and the results are instant.
What our customers are saying
I was concerned that something wasn’t right with my vision. Amanda saw me the same day of my concern, conducted some scans and found the problem with my eyes immediately. She referred me to the Eye Department at Eastbourne DGH without fail and I had an appointment the following Monday where the consultant wanted to run some more tests. I saw another consultant three days later and had laser eye surgery that day for a problem where I could have lost my sight. I cannot recommend Focus Medical Eye Centre highly enough, from the receptionists to the opticians; nothing was too much trouble. I feel so fortunate to have these wonderful people looking after me and my eyes.
With grateful thanks
