Digital Eye Scan

Good quality retinal photographs are integral in the diagnosis, treatment and progress monitoring of retinal disorders like diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration. The clinical usefulness of a image is highly dependent on its quality. Using our high resolution digital cameras, excellent images are taken for every patient by our retinal trained orthoptists.

Anterior/Posterior Segment Digital Camera

Our Haag-Streit high resolution anterior/posterior segment digital eye scan can help diagnose and track disorders in the front, middle and back parts of the eye, including inflammatory conditions of the eye and far peripheral disorders of the retina and choroid.

Fundus Autofluorescence

The Fundus Autofluorescence is a non-invasive digital eye scan of the retina and macular by special digital cameras or scanning laser ophthalmoscopes.

Fundus autofluorescence uses the naturally occurring fluorescence from the retina to provide an indicator of eye health. Illuminating the retina with a blue light causes a “glow” without injecting any dye. This glow (fluorescence) returning from the retina can be used to create a black-and-white image which can be interpreted by recognizing characteristic patterns.

There is no radiation involved and this test is safe in pregnancy.

Fundus Autofluorescence digital eye scan assess the health status of the deeper layers of the retina which gives useful information about the diagnosis and prognosis of certain disorders such as Macular Degeneration, central serous retinopathy and genetic retinal conditions such as retinal dystrophies and retinitis pigmentosa.

Strathfield Retina Clinic has two Fundus autofluorescence eye scanners utilising the Heidelberg Spectralis scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) and Topcon Digital Fundus Camera.

Optical Coherence Tomography

The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) digital eye scan at Strathfield Retina Clinic is the highest resolution laser scanner available with a precision eye-tracking device. This allows for earlier detection of sight-threatening retinal conditions.

Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive digital eye scan of the retina which uses light to produce a detailed image of the retina and macula and is an essential instrument to diagnose and treat conditions such as Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Vein Occlusion, Central Serous Retinopathy, Epiretinal Membrane and Vitreo-Macular Traction Syndrome. This highly sophisticated imaging tool takes slices of the retina and optic nerve and can produce a cross-sectional view of these structures and also detailed 3D reconstructions.

There is no radiation involved and the test is safe during pregnancy.

We have 2 different High Resolution Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography machines, including the latest Eye-Tracking Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope SPECTRALIS HRA + OCT  and the SPECTRALIS OCT both from Heidelberg Engineering.
