Vision Care is also about ensuring the health of your vision by way of offering comprehensive eye tests by highly-qualified optometrists using state-of-the art equipment that allows the Vision Care team to engage in telemedicine. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) diagnoses multiple conditions of the retina which can then be shared with specialists worldwide. Fundus cameras as well as Digital slitlamps allow them to send pictures in the event that the diagnosis is not clear.
Available procedures include medical history, refraction, binocular vision tests, colour vision tests as well as screening for such eye diseases as Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Uveitis, Conjunctivitis, Cataracts and other abnormalities. Referrals to the Eye Clinic are given in the event that tests suggest any existing eye diseases or conditions and we also work closely with a renowned Retinal Specialist Dr. Zia Carrim in Mauritius.
