Eye Health is not just about 20/20 Vision
Few people realise that many illnesses and conditions can be discovered and treated through better eye health. This is why we have invested in an Ocular Coherence Tomography machine.
This state of the art and clever device provides a detailed 3D image of your eye. Using this machine we can detect and catch conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration (AMD), and glaucoma.
Specialist Treatments at our Visioncare Medical Eye Centre
Dry Eye Treatment
Dry eye syndrome is a condition where your eyes do not make enough tears. Tears in the eye act as a lubricant and protect your eye from the environment. Sufferers of the dry eye condition often experience inflammation and soreness. We specialise in treatment for dry eye syndrome and have a range of options to keep your eye moist. Visit this page for more information.
Orthokeratology (Ortho - K) - The alternative to Laser Eye Surgery
The knowledge that our cornea lenses can be reshaped using contact lenses is not new. It was first tried forty years ago. Sadly, the technology was hit and miss. Happily that has now changed. Using the latest 3D corneal mapping technology and special contact lenses, we can offer a service whereby your vision is corrected while you sleep. You simply ware the lenses why you slumber, remove them in the morning and enjoy 20/20 vision all day.
Ortho - K offers a viable alternative to laser eye surgery, as well as providing the same freedoms. It is also suitable for children. Learn more about Ortho – K here.
Learning Difficulties and Visual Stress
Around two million children in the UK experience learning difficulties. It is estimated that half of these children are suffering with a condition called scotopic sensitivity syndrome. This disorder affects vision, making reading and writing difficult. It is also known as perceptual dyslexia.
It is caused as a result of inappropriate brain-eye co-ordination. In essence suffers have difficulty reading due to the relationship between light and their central nervous system.
At Vision Care Medical Eye Centre we provide specialist examination and treatment services for children with this condition.
One of the children we treated was featured in a BBC NEWS Online story. Prior to treatment, Ben, aged 13 had considerable difficulty reading. He received tests for dyslexia which proved inconclusive.
Following an eye test, we treated Ben using coloured filters held in place using eye glasses. Ben's reading improved overnight and he took two GCSE's a year early. It is tragic that so many children can be helped with a simple eye test and yet are not.
If you feel your child maybe suffering with scotopic sensitivity syndrome, get in touch and make an appointment. This could be exactly what they need.
