The OCULUS ImageCam®

The Oculus ImageCam has now arrived at The Eye Place, is it an invaluable new addition to our data collecting abilities.

One the areas of our Comprehensive Eye Examination that we excel in is the detection of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) and Blepharitis. Statistically 80% of us has this, however from experience it is more like 90%.

I have lost count of the number of patients who we see you have had the irritation and discomfort for years, whom who had regular eye examinations and have said to me “no one has ever show me a picture of my eyelids before, let alone advised me how to stop this redness and discomfort”.

With the addition of the Oculus image camera to our eye examinations and EyeGienist appointments it enables our Optometrists to diagnose, explain and manage a treatment programme to the highest level of care.
