  • Learn More About Eye Care

    What is the difference between an ophthalmologist, optometrist, and optician? 

    All three provide eye care services but in different capacities.

    An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who has undergone specialized training in managing the diseases of the eye through both medical and surgical means. This type of doctor is qualified to perform complex surgeries involving the eye.

    An optometrist is a primary care clinician who can examine, diagnose and treat common conditions of the eyes through medical interventions. The optometrist has however not undergone as much rigorous training as an ophthalmologist.

    An optician is a technician who is trained to design and fit various visual aids such as eyeglasses and their frames, contact lenses, and other visual aids.

  • What symptoms should prompt me to seek an eye care consultation?

    The common signs and symptoms of eye disease are: –

    • Eye pain
    • Itchiness of the eyes
    • Redness of the eyes
    • Swelling on the eyelids
    • Excessive tearing
    • Eye discharge
    • Diminishing vision – blurring, or loss of vision
    • Presence of black spots in your visual field

    If you have any of the above symptoms, it is recommended that you visit an eye care professional.

  • What happens during an eye checkup?

    Like with other doctors’ consultations, a detailed medical history will be obtained from the patient. This is then followed by a comprehensive eye exam that requires specialized equipment found at the eye clinic.

    The clinician will then make recommendations on the best treatment option. Follow-up visits may be scheduled to monitor the progress of the patient.

  • Eye Care for Your Young Ones

    Children are prone to various eye diseases and injuries.

    The other common conditions in childhood are developmental conditions of the eyes such as retinoblastoma and congenital cataract.

    These can be discovered early and treated by getting an eye checkup for your child within the first year of life.

  • Eye Care in Chronic Disease

    Patients living with diabetes and high blood pressure are at risk of developing complications if not n any medical follow-up.

    One of the common complications is injury to the blood vessels of the retina. This leads to progressive loss of function of the cells of the retina leading to worsening visual loss.

    When caught early, this damage can be repaired and prevented from progressing.

    An examination called a fundoscopy is recommended for patients with these diseases annually. During this examination, the retina is visualized and any abnormal changes are noted.

  • What Visual Aids Should I Use?

    Following an eye checkup, the attending clinician may recommend a visual aid to help improve your eyesight. This will either be eyeglasses or contact lenses.

    The visual aid is usually designed for you by an optician depending on the specifications made on your prescription note.
