Eye Health

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil and is responsible for clear vision and focusing.

Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over the age 40 and is the principal cause of blindness in the world. In fact, there are more cases of cataracts worldwide than there are of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy combined. Comprehensive eye examinations at Eyecare Plus Carnes Hill monitor for manage all stages and types of cataracts.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a progressive eye condition that causes damage to the optic nerve thus inhibiting information being carried from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma usually has very few to no initial symptoms. In most cases, glaucoma is associated with higher than normal pressure inside the eye.

If left untreated, uncontrolled or undetected, glaucoma can cause peripheral vision loss and can eventually lead to blindness. Early glaucoma is often treatable. However as there are often no symptoms until later stage glaucoma, it is important get your optic nerve and eye pressures checked periodically.

Macular Degeneration

Age-related Macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive disease affecting older adults, whereby central vision (the macula) over time declines due to retinal damage. “Dry” AMD progresses slowly over time whereas “wet” AMD causes sudden decline in central vision.

As your central vision is important for seeing detail, driving, reading and recognise faces, early detection is imperative in slowing down the progression or treating where necessary.

Pterygium

Pterygium is a fleshy mass of thickened conjunctiva that grows over part of the cornea usually from the inner side of the eyeball and causes a disturbance of vision. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the primary cause for the development and growth of pterygia. Excessive dust and wind causing ongoing irritation and inflammation are also other risk factors, as is dry eye disease.

Pterygia usually develops from 30-50 years of age, and these bumps on the eyeball rarely are seen in children. Progression can be reduced by the use of good quality polarized sunglasses which is especially important in the Australian climate.

Dry Eyes

Dry eyes is a common chronic and progressive condition of the eyes affecting a large proportion of the Australian population. Symptoms often include sensations of dryness, burning, stinging, scratchiness and grittiness of the eyes, excessive watering, increased redness and even reduced vision. Symptoms may often be worse in various conditions like air-conditioning or windy, cold or dry environments.

Various management and treatment options are available for dry eyes, however will depend on the cause for dry eyes. Therefore it is important to check your eyes with your optometrist especially if you suffer from symptoms of dry eyes as the solution may be as simple as using eye drops periodically.

Eye Tests

It's important to have regular eye examinations, at least once every 1-2 years. There are various eye conditions that may slip under the radar and so just "30 minutes today, can save your vision tomorrow".

Visual Acuity & Prescriptions

Measures of your vision at both distance and near will be examined to see whether corrective lenses in the form of spectacles or contact lenses would be beneficial for optimal vision and functioning.

Binocular Vision

The eyes are often required to work together and with good focusing ability. This reduces eyestrain and difficulties in tasks such as reading, learning, working and playing sports.

Ocular Health

The health of both front and back of the eye is imperative for good functioning. We will endeavour to ensure no abnormalities are overlooked and look to prevent or treat eye conditions when necessary.

Intraocular Pressure

This is a quick check for the pressure of the eyes which is important in detecting and monitoring for glaucoma.

Visual Fields

Our optometrists are full capable of conducting and monitoring your peripheral vision with ongoing visual fields tests which are important in monitoring Glaucoma and neurological conditions.

Digital Retinal Imaging

Imaging through photography is a great way to monitor for small changes in the eye and is available to all patients.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

OCTs are a new and advanced method for detecting and monitoring various conditions including Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. This test functions much like an MRI for the eye and is able to detect pathology much earlier than conventional methods.

Corneal Topography

At Eyecare Plus Carnes Hill we are equipped with technology that is able to map the front surface of the eye, otherwise known as the cornea. This allows us to help manage patients with conditions like Keratoconus or those wishing to explore Night Contact Lenses (Orthokeratology)

Behavioural Optometry

At , we pride ourselves on Behavioural Optometry which is a whole body approach to vision care. This is based on the understanding that vision is an active process and that visual problems can be prevented, treated and rehabilitated through various means despite various visual developmental delays that may inhibit or prevent successful progress. We often work with various other health professionals including paediatricians, occupational therapists, speech therapists, kinesiologists and tutors in ensuring the best developmental outcome is achieved.

Paediatric Vision

Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive eye care for children. Studies show that 80% of all learning is visual and that one in four children may have a vision problem. Thus a comprehensive eye examination is important to ensure that children perform at their best academically, socially, and athletically.

If your child is having difficulty in school, specifically with reading, this could be a sign of visually related ocular issues. Common symptoms may include squinting to see the computer or TV, complaints of headaches, excessive rubbing or blinking of the eyes, holding reading materials very close or far, reversing letters/words or skipping words/lines when reading.

We offer various paediatric eye examinations and therapies including:

Behavioural Eye Examination

A child's functional vision includes various aspects such as distance and near vision, focusing skills, eye tracking, eye turning and alignment, depth perception, colour vision, visual-motor coordination as well as ocular health and more. These are all assessed in a behavioural eye examination and is recommended if your child has symptoms as described above.

Visual Processing Assessment

Occasionally a child may still have difficulty seeing despite having good or well managed functional vision. This may be due to a visual processing difficulty whereby they may see well however have difficulty processing what they are actually seeing. A visual processing assessment can be done to elicit the specific areas which may be delayed according to what is expected for their age group.

Vision Therapy

At Eyecare Plus Carnes Hill we conduct courses of in-office and home vision therapy to target development in areas such as binocular vision, focusing difficulties and visual processing delays. This can be beneficial in helping your child function more efficiently in areas such as learning and reading.

Contact Lenses

Glasses are not the only option. At we offer a variety contact lens correction options for short sightedness, long sightedness or a combination.

For those who would like contacts for occasional wear like sport and dinner parties, daily contacts, which you wear once and discard after use, are a great and convenient option.

For those who would like to wear contact lenses on a more regular basis, a range of fortnightly and monthly lenses are available also.

Interested in changing the colour of your eyes? Coloured contact lenses in various colours are available in non-prescription and prescription styles.

also provide specialty contact lens services and include:

Keratoconus Fittings

Rigid contact lenses are a great option for those with keratoconus where spectacle vision is no longer satisfactory. At Eyesense Optometrists we offer the option of speciality contacts like rigid gas-permeable lenses for keratoconus when vision through one's spectacles is no longer satisfactory. Assessments for these lenses include measurements of the front curvature and profile of the cornea, correct lens selection and trialing as well as tutorials on correct lens insertion, removal and care plans.

Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology (orthoK), otherwise known as overnight vision correction or night contacts, is another area of specialty contact lenses offered at . This modality of contact lens wear is suitable for those who are short sighted, those who are very mildly long sighted and those who wish to have good vision without the need for spectacle or contact lens wear through the day.

OrthoK is also one of the best methods currently known for reducing the rate of progression of short sightedness. In other words, orthoK can reduce the increase in degree of your prescription which would have otherwise been likely to occur without intervention.

OrthoK is made possible by the wearing of rigid gas-permeable lenses during sleep. This causes a non-surgical and non-permanent change in the corneal shape, giving you good vision during the day without lens wear.

Assessments and consultations for orthoK include determining the curvature and profile of the cornea, correct lens selection and trialling as well as tutorials for correct lens insertion, removal and care plans as well as ongoing follow-up consultations.
