  • General Eye Health Examination

    Th​e general eye health examination (GE) is a comprehensive check of your eye that not only includes obtaining the prescription of your spectacles, but also ensuring that there are no abnormalities that require further investigations. If it is your first visit to the Optometry Centre, you will have to undergo the GE to obtain a baseline record of your eye health. Due to its comprehensive nature, the duration of the​ GE is typically between 90 minutes to 120 minutes. The eye tests that are typically performed during the GE are as follows:​​


    History Taking
    Confrontation Fields
    Retinoscopy

    Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy
    Tonometry


    Cover Test
    Pupils Test
    Subjective Refraction
    Ophthalmoscopy / Retinal Imaging
    Management & Advice


    The student optometrist assists in the optometry lecturer to perform the eye tests for you. The optometry lecturer ensures that the eye tests are performed appropriately and accurately, and will repeat some critical tests.​​


  • Paediatric Eye Services

    With the worsening problem of myopia (short-sightedness) in children, having an eye examination that is specially catered for your young ones is of particularly importance. Apart from examining and monitoring the changes in your child’s eye power, other important aspects of the visual system is also examined. This include the ability to perceive depth (3D perception), colour vision, alignment of the eyes, focusing ability and accuracy, as well as the general eye health.


    NP Optometry Centre is equipped with the Lenstar Ocular Biometer that can accurately measure the length of your child’s eye. Since myopia progression is caused by the lengthening of the eyeball, the Lenstar will be able to consistently and objectively monitor the progression of your child’s myopia. Do talk to our optometry lecturers who have special interest in children’s vision,​ on controlling your child’s myopia.


    The list of tests that are typically performed during a contact lens consultation is as follows:


    History Taking (with Parents)
    Colour Vision Test
    Ocular Alignment Test​
    Eye Health Assesment

    Vision Assessment
    Depth Perception Test
    Accommodation Test​

​​

Cirrus HD Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)  


Cirrus HD Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)

The OCT is an advanced retinal imaging system that is capable of producing 3 dimensional images of your retina. It is used in the detection and diagnosis of age-related macular degeneration, epiretinal membranes, and other retinal disorders.

​​

Visual Fields Analysers

Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) Analyser  



Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) Analyser

The gold standard in analysing the depth and the extent of the field of vision, the HVF analyser helps in the detection and diagnosis of glaucoma and other optic nerve diseases.


FDT Visual Fields Analyser  



FDT Visual Fields Analyser

The FDT is capable of performing visual fields analysis under two minutes for each eye. It is helpful in ​patients who have difficulty concentrating during visual fields analysis. In addition, the FDT is a very effective screening tool for glaucoma.

​​

Ocular Measurements

Lenstar Ocular Biometry  



Lenstar Ocular Biometry

The Lenstar is useful in monitoring the progression of myopia as it provides precise, consistent​ and objective measurements of your corneal thickness, crystalline lens, vitreous chamber, and the length of your eye.


Corneal Topography  



Corneal Topography

The corneal topographer provides information of the shape of the cornea that can help the optometrist choose a suitable contact lenses for you. It is also used in the diagnosis of corneal abnormalities such as keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration.

​​

Tonometers

Non Contact Tonometry with CR Technology

Besides measuring the pressure of the eye using the airpuff technique, this tonometer provides additional information that helps in the analysis for the risk of developing glaucoma.


Topcon 4-in-1 System  



​Topcon 4-in-1 System

The Topcon 4-in-1 system is capable of performing obtaining autorefraction (power of the eye), autokeratometry (curvature of the cornea), pachymetry (thickness of the cornea), and airpuff tonometry (pressure of the eye). This system aids in the assessment of the risk of developing glaucoma. ​​
