Why is it important to have a Comprehensive Eye Health Screening?
Because there are inherent eye diseases such as glaucoma and retinal diseases that can result in blindness.
YOUR EYE GUARDIAN is an optometry practice established in 2002 and we specialize in providing comprehensive eye health screening.
Using advanced ocular diagnostic instruments along with professional expertise, we conduct the following tests:
(A) Digital Retinal Photography
The retina is a highly photo sensitive film at the back of the eye which receives vision. The retinal camera captures images of the retina evaluate its health.
It detects retinal abnormalities such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataract and papilledema.
(B) Computerized Tonometry
This instrument known as the tonometer blows a gentle puff of air onto the cornea of the eye to measure the internal
3.2% of Singaporeans over 40 years of age has Glaucoma. Most cases have gone unnoticed until it has reached its terminal stage
(C) Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy
The high magnification slit lamp biomicroscope examines anterior eye segments such as the cornea, eye lid, lashes, conjunctiva as well as the depth of the anterior chamber (primary closed angle glaucoma screening) and cataract.
(D) Visual Acuity Test & Refraction
By far, the most reliable method to examine the degree of shortsighted, astigmatism, long-sighted and presbyopia is
the century old method of testing with the chart known as subjective refraction. We conduct a careful subjective refraction to have an accurate reading of your eyes degree, which is vital in the prescription of a good pair of glasses.
(E) FDT Visual Field Testing
The Humphery Frequency Doubling Technology is Fast and Effective in using Flickers to test the Field of View.
It is useful in the detection of visual field loss in glaucoma, cataract and neurological disorders (probable brain tumor) The age to test is >18 to 85 years old.
