OUR TECHNOLOGYPractice offers patients advanced vision solutions
Our practice has the latest innovative technology enabling us to detect eye conditions as early as possible and to provide our patients with advanced vision solutions.
Digital retinal photography
We use a high-magnification camera to photograph the retina (the inside lining of the eye) which allows accurate recording of your eye health and provides the ability to monitor for changes over time.
Photographs of the retina allow the optometrist to monitor for eye health changes over time.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scanning
OCT is a non-invasive scan taken with light to image the external and internal structures of the eye. OCT technology allows us to accurately diagnose and monitor subtle changes at a microscopic level. This allows for early detection of eye disease such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables earlier detection of eye disease and monitoring the eye at a microscopic level.

Visual field testing
Visual field testing measures and analyses your peripheral (side) vision. We look for subtle changes such as early glaucoma, or monitor peripheral vision after stroke or traumatic brain injury.
This state-of-the-art technology maps the shape of the cornea and sclera (the front clear and white parts of the eye). We can design customised hard contact lenses for conditions such as keratoconus or post-surgical corneas. This technology enables us to create highly accurate contact lenses for complex eye conditions.
Barry & Sargent Optometrists’ sMap 3-D mapping technology obtains custom measurements of the shape of the eye.

Please be aware that some specialised equipment or testing is not included in the standard cost of a comprehensive eye examination. The optometrist will always discuss with you the reason and extra costs involved.
