New hi-tech equipment

Have your say

PATIENTS visiting a Sheffield optometrist are now able to benefit from revolutionary 3D screening following a £50,000 investment in new equipment.

Alex Gage has bought a 3D screening camera for his Woodseats practice, which allows him to carry out a more thorough eye examination, as well as take a photograph of the area which can be kept on file on the computer to allow comparisons to be made at the next appointment.

The scan is quick and painless, but allows professionals to check for potentially serious conditions including age-related macular degeneration, diabetes and glaucoma that might be missed in a standard eye examination.
