(i) Basic investigations
Before meeting with our ophthalmologists and physicians, basic investigations are usually performed to our clients in order to gather certain parameters in relation to their eyes’ conditions. These basic investigations include, among others, tests for assessing eye pressure, visual acuity and refractive errors.
At the consultation session, our ophthalmologists and physicians will obtain their clients’basic medical history, chief complaints and related signs and symptoms, while taking into consideration the results from the basic investigations. Our ophthalmologists and physicians also carry out examinations for our clients, such as by way of slit lamp to diagnose diseases from the cornea to retina. Examinations of the retinal fundi are also performed after dilating pupils for retinal and macular pathologies.
(iii) Special investigations
Depending on a clients’ particular medical condition, special investigations maybe required to assist our ophthalmologists and physicians in reaching a diagnosis and devising a treatment plan. Special investigations generally involve advanced technology, including ultrasound. Investigations may include, for instance, taking photographic images of the retina and examining the fine details such as blood vessels, nerves and thickness of the retina.
