OCT - Optical Coherence Tomography
An OCT is helpful in providing further information in diagnosis and management of various eye conditions. An OCT provides micron-scale, cross - sectional images of the retina and choroid. It is helpful in further management of conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration and other retinal conditions.
Humphreys Visual Field Analyser
The Humphrey Visual Field Analyser is a computerized perimeter used to examine a patient's visual field. The visual field analyser is a useful tool in assessing Glaucoma.
Cataract, Pterygium and MIGS Surgery
Cataracts, pterygium and MIGS (Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery) surgeries are all operated at ST. ANDREWS IPSWICH PRIVATE HOSPITAL on a weekly basis.
Dr Jamnadas is teamed with highly experienced and trained nurses, along with qualified Anaesthetists for all surgeries performed to provide the best possible care.
The specially trained Anaesthetists ensure that all patients are relaxed, comfortable and undergo painless, safe surgery.
Surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia with sedation.
Fluorescein Angiography is a photographic test of the retina used to diagnose certain eye conditions and determine possible treatments. A water-soluble dye called Fluorescein is injected into a vein in your arm, where it travels through the body reaching the eye. A special camera takes multiple photographs of the back of your eyes, as the dye passes through the blood vessels. This provides information about the retina and optic nerve.
We are able to provide laser treatments in-rooms. We have laser facilities for treatment of Diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, and to restore any sight lost due to posterior capsular opacification, which is clouding of the capsule that may occur behind the artificial lens, following cataract surgery.
With our sub-specialised retinal training, we are able to provide a high level of care for Macula Degeneration, Retinal Vein Occlusions and Diabetic Macula Oedema. With ongoing training and by using state of art equipment for monitoring and expertise in the management of these retinal diseases, better outcomes can be expected.
