Early detection: Screening our community
Eyescan has the latest technology to screen you for common conditions that may threaten your vision. With the availability of new treatments by Specialist Ophthalmologists that can prevent vision loss it is important to understand thatů early detection saves sight.
With the diagnostic imaging scans that Eyescan provide, your Doctor will be better able to protect your vision by following any future changes detected in the scans if you had been previously normal, or providing rapid access to Specialist care if it is required.
Common Eye Conditions
Reduction in vision is commonly slow and loss of side vision may not be noticed for a long time. The vision already lost cannot be restored. Once detected, eye drops, laser treatment and surgery can prevent vision loss or reduce the risk of further visual loss.
The development of Cataract is common and is normal with ageing. It is treatable and vision can be restored by surgery.
This is an age related condition that can result in the loss of fine detailed central vision. The vision already lost cannot be restored. In some cases ocular injections can be used as a treatment to retain and protect your vision from further loss.
Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetes are common in our community and can cause catastrophic loss of vision by affecting the Retina or Optic Nerve. Once vision is lost from these conditions it cannot be restored, but prevention of further loss may be achieved in most cases.
Optometrists and Ophthalmologists at Eyescan share the medical care that you need. Information gained from the latest technology that Eyescan provides, allows them to work together to better care for your eye health.
