Welcome back to the Roger Pope and Partners blog where we bring you the very latest in our fine selection of luxury eyewear, offer our clinical insights and document that latest goings on of our practice. In today’s entry we invite our readers to discover the latest technology that we employ at the practice in order to offer the very finest in service and examinations. We have chosen three items of technology that we proudly use to assist our clients with their vision needs.
Zeiss Clarus 500 Imaging System
We are one of only a few practices in the UK to offer advanced retinal imaging with the ground-breaking new Zeiss Clarus 500 imaging system. This peerless device is the first to provide high-resolution imaging in true colour from the macular to the far periphery, where indications of disease are often located. Our optometrists can then detect and refer for treatment, conditions such as glaucoma or macular degeneration at the earliest possible stage.
Using a 3D Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) camera, our optometrist will take a three-dimensional cross-section scan of the inside of the eye. Very similar to an ultrasound scan, the OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of your eye. We also capture a digital photograph of the surface of your eye to cross reference areas of concern. This highly advanced screening allows for better and more precise information regarding early signs of retinal disease and macular degeneration.
iProfiler is an innovative measuring device that analyses the eye with acute accuracy. iProfiler provides detailed information about the imaging properties of the eye — in particular high order aberrations. These aberrations are responsible for poor vision in reduced contrast, such as at twilight or night time. Vision can then be improved with specially designed lenses to provide the wearer with optimised visual performance in all light conditions.
