At ACES we understand that we have an important role to play in the wellbeing of all of our patients. That is why we are committed to consistently providing the very best ophthalmic care in the community with the very best clinical outcomes.
We ask our patients about all aspects of their experience at ACES and use this survey to identify any areas of our service which we can improve upon, this allows us to ensure we consistently strive for excellence in all aspects of our service and care.
Our clinic locations are fully equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and treat eye conditions. Our state of the art equipment includes:
OCT Retinal Scanner: The optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanner allows us to obtain high-resolution images of the posterior segment of the eye and the retina. It is essential in a modern ophthalmic clinic to accurately diagnose conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, macular oedema, and macular hole.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyser: As well as being used in the diagnosis of established glaucoma, the Humphrey Field Analyser is also important in the assessment of visual loss from a wide variety of conditions such as stroke, brain tumour, and abnormalities of the optic nerve.
Nidek Biometry Scanner: The Nidek Biometry Scanner which measures the curvature of the front of the eye (cornea), and the length of the eye (axial length) extremely accurately, to within a tenth of a millimetre. It also has its own ultrasound scanning source which enables an accurate intraocular lens to be calculated even for patients with dense cataracts. This device provides information to our Ophthalmologists that allows them to select the most appropriate intraocular lens for you that they then implant during cataract surgery.
Nd:YAG Laser: Nd:YAG lasers are used in ophthalmology to treat posterior capsular opacification, a condition that may occur after cataract surgery, and for peripheral iridotomy in patients with acute angle-closure glaucoma, where it has superseded surgical iridectom.
Fundus Camera: Fundus photography allows us to capture a high resolution image of the central and peripheral retina, to include the optic disc, retinal blood vessels and the macula. This device will take a photograph of the sensitive layers at the back of the eye, which will then be reviewed by our experienced clinicians as part of your eye health assessment.
