YOUR EYE EXAMINATION
Time for our patients and ultimate care are the watch-words of H&D. We want you to be able to enjoy the very best vision possible so we take time to find out who you are and how you use your eyes. Our eye examination is not about selling you glasses!
No rush, no time constraints, just focus on you and your eyes and giving you’re the best vision.
What is different about a Hammond and Dummer Eye Examination?
Your eyes are your most precious sense and you need to trust the professionals who care for you and give you the ultimate care.
It is said that “the eyes are the windows to your soul” but to us at Hammond and Dummer they are also a snap shot of your general health and wellbeing.
We undertake a full ocular history, family history, discuss your general health, visual problems and any medications you may be taking. We want to know what you use your eyes for; be it for sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time, identifying birds from a very long distance or close intricate craft work. This allows us to know how we can best help you and meet your needs.
Our standard eye examination will thoroughly check the internal and external health of your eyes to ensure they are in tip top condition including checking your eye pressures and peripheral vision. We will check to see if you require spectacles to correct your vision and fine tune it to ensure your prescription gives you the clearest vision we possibly can, no matter what task you need them for.
Checking to make sure that your eyes are working properly together is also something we do at Hammond and Dummer. If they don’t, you could be getting symptoms such as headaches or double vision which will affect all that you do.
At Hammond and Dummer we are at the cutting edge of technology and offer these unique, additional services to all who come trust us with their eyes.
Fundus Photography is the technology most widely employed. Although older technology, it is still useful to gauge an overall state of your eyes and vision. However, the image is two dimensional and fails to elucidate many aspects of your eyes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging actually shows us what is happening beneath the surface and so is a much better health check of your eyes. It can also measure your corneal thickness and look at the front of your eye in great detail.
This advanced technique allows us to look further into your eyes and find conditions such as Macular Degeneration, Diabetes and Glaucoma in their infancy thus enabling us to get you the best treatment as soon as possible.
OCT has been in our practice for a decade and the technology has advanced even further. Our OCT instrumentation is the third generation Swept Source OCT technology, meaning we can see into your eye in more detail than ever before.
Our Rodenstock’s DNEye Analyser can ascertain if you have higher order aberrations within your visual system. These aberrations cause glare especially when the pupil is fully open in dark situations or at night. Most patients assume that glare from car headlights or street lights is normal. We can, however, eliminate this problem for you. The information provided by this advanced analyser is used to make bespoke lenses just for you.
Keratography is used to map the contours of the front of your eyes. It’s like a map of your eyes and we can then use this to prescribe the very best contact lenses for you. Further it is a vital tool in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eyes and is an adjunct to our Tear Clinic.
To provide you with continuity of care our complete suite of instrumentation is linked to a highly secure internal network allowing us to provide you with a permanent history of your eye care.
