Our practices are fully committed to providing the highest possible standards of eyecare for all our patients, both NHS and private. With the use of state of the art equipment, ranging from computerised testing, clear bright LCD test charts, retinal photography and visual field screening, you can rest assured the health of your eyes is being well looked after. We are also members of the PEARS referral scheme. Why not book a sight test or contact lens check online, or contact your local David Inman Opticians store and speak directly to our professional staff.
Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means, in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can be seen in the retina. Early detection is essential so treatments can be administered.
How does your optometrist normally examine the retina?
Examining the retina is challenging. Your optometrist looks through your pupil to examine the back of your eye. Traditional viewing methods can be effective, but difficult to perform and are carried out manually without any digital record.
How does the optomap help?
The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-15% of your retina at one time. The unique optomap ultra-wide view enhances your optometrist’s ability to detect even the earliest signs of disease that appear on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows your optometrist more time to review your images and educate you about your eye health.
Prescription accuracy of 0.01 D thanks to the continuous power variations of the sphere and cylinder by 0.01 D increments. Furthermore, the refraction value depends on the vertex distance, the Vision-R 800 phoropter’s back cameras measure to an accuracy of 0.01mm.
In the traditional refraction procedure, values are rounded to 0.25 D at each stage and inaccuracies accumulate. In the precise Digital Infinite Refraction™ procedure, all the refraction is conducted with 0.01 D increments and the final value is rounded to the nearest 0.25 D, with four options for the optometrist to choose from, providing a more reliable result for your patient.
The smooth power changes and a wider field of vision make refraction very comfortable for the patient. The procedure is shorter and there is no fatigue. All along the refraction procedure, variation steps are adjusted to patient sensitivity making differences easier to perceive and, as a consequence, responses are easier to give. At the end of the test, Vision-R 800 phoropter offers patients the fascinating experience of comparing refractions in simulated real-life conditions.
Easier for the Optometrist
The practitioner reaches the final refraction more quickly than with traditional methods thanks to the continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power. Also, the module’s “SMART tests & SMART programs”, which are special algorithms assist the optometrist in conducting the refraction procedure, making it both fast and easy. The practitioner displays the various tests, records the patient's answers and follows the algorithm progression which automatically ends when the value is found.
3 cameras work simultaneously to provide a 3D reconstruction of the eye-lens combination in the front and 3/4 views.
Markers for precision
The markers placed on the frames allow for the statistical analysis of the patient’s natural posture. The precision of the measurements is one-tenth of a millimeter and one-tenth of a degree.
The 2 infra-red cameras provide you with the option of taking measurements through tinted lenses without removing them.
High definition touch screen
1080x1920 resolution full HD touch screen makes it possible to see the tiniest of differences.
Multi functional device
Dynamic point of sale function via its digital screen to help enhance the image of the practice and offer a more compelling experience in the front of the practice.
Through vocal and visual instructions, the Visioffice® X gives the patient a greater appreciation of the measurements taken.
