The City Clinic Ophthalmology Exam Room has got modern equipment for:
- Examination of visual acuity and color vision
- Computed refraction diagnostics
- Computed contactless measuring of intraocular pressure
- Computed perimetry
The space one can see at a fixed gaze is called a visual field. Perimetry is important and a necessary examination in many diseases of the optic nerve and the brain, for example: glaucoma, stroke, tumors, etc. The most accurate method for examining the visual field is computed perimetry – a patient undergoes special threshold tests thus providing information about the photo-sensitivity in any part of the retina. Computed perimetry is one of the most important tests necessary for the detection and tracking of glaucoma patients.
A method for measuring the thickness of the cornea. A part of the set of tests for detecting glaucoma.
Ophthalmoscopy is a test allowing the physician to examine the retina, the optic nerve and the vitreous humour. Most commonly it is used in enlarged pupils, just as it is with most ophthalmic exams. In this study, a variety of lenses – contact or contactless – may be used. The lens is placed in front of or on the eye, and the physician looks through it. The combination of a lens and technical equipment allows qualitative studying the entire retina, including the periphery – where it is the thinnest, and tearing of the retina may appear.
- Examination of the peripheral retina – using Goldman’s test
This test is used for checking the front-chamber angle – that part of the eye which is to drain the aqueous humor thus adjusting the intraocular pressure. Gonioscopy is an essential part of examinations of glaucoma. For the test itself, a special lens is placed on the eye.
- Lachrymation test, patency of the lacrimal pathways
- Amsler test – a method for detecting diseases of the macula (the central part of the retina
How to conduct the test:
- Put on reading glasses.
- Place the test at about 30 cm from your eyes in a well-lit room.
- Cover one eye and look at the black dot in the center of the grid.
- If you notice distorted, blurred or missing areas while looking at the dot in the center, you need to go for an examination at an eye doctor because these might be symptoms of macula damage.
