At the Northern Eye Centre, we have the latest medical equipment available to achieve the highest standards in patient care.

A laser scanning ophthalmoscope that analyses the retina layers and gives a detailed picture of its structure. It is an essential tool in the management of many retinal and glaucoma cases.

For assessment of peripheral vision, commonly used for patients with glaucoma and optic nerve disease.

This is a test to mainly assess retinal circulation. A fluorescent dye is injected into a vein in the arm or hand. The dye then circulates rapidly in the body, reaching the retina in only a few seconds. A special camera then takes multiple quick pictures which show the dye in the retina circulation clearly. This test helps us to detect swelling and leakage in the macula (macular oedema). It also shows the early budding of new vessels in the peripheral retina (retina neovascularisation) in eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy or with retina vein occlusion. The test also helps to diagnose many other eye conditions.

Sophisticated equipment used in the pre-operative assessment for cataract surgery. Using infrared laser light, the IOL Master takes fast and accurate measurements of the eye to measure the eye length and cornea curvature. These measurements are critical in calculating the correct strength of IOL (intra-ocular lens) to be implanted during cataract surgery.

B-scan examination involves taking pictures of the eye to identify conditions such as retinal detachment, vitreous haemorrhage and posterior vitreous detachment.

A-scan is used to measure the length of the eye, which is essential information in the preparation of cataract surgery.

Corneal topography is an imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea (the clear outer part of the eye). It is valuable in the diagnosis of various corneal conditions such as keratoconus and can improve the accuracy of pre-operative measurements for cataract surgery.
