If you need to have your eyes examined, good diagnostics requires much more than the traditional eyesight check table. Our centers have state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment: an automated refractometer to determine your eye refraction (i.e. myopia or hypermetropia); a biomicroscope to examine the state of your eyes, conjunctiva, cornea and eye media for eventual pathologies; an ophthalmoscope to examine eye-ground; a phoroptor to fit glass or contact lenses. Contact lens fitting will involve additional automated keratometer diagnostics to determine the exact corneal diameter and eye curvature. Those measurements are required to select contact lenses best fitting to your eye size.
For a more comprehensive picture regarding your eye health it would be necessary to measure your intraocular pressure – in particular for those aged 35 or older. We use automated contact-free tonometers which perform pressure measurement with air flow and do not hurt the patient's eye. If necessary, our ophthalmologist determines the patient's visual field using an automated computerized perimeter. Visual field determination is required to diagnose glaucoma properly . Visiotest unit determines physiologic capacity of eyesight and checks the correctness of glass or contact lens fitting. Visiotest confirms the fitting results for the ophthalmologist. The findings of a comprehensive examination will give the ophthalmologist the required information regarding your eye health. The development of quite many eye diseases may be prevented, if diagnosed early. E.g. early detection of cataract or glaucoma enables the ophthalmologist to preserve the patient's eyesight.
