Visiting the Optician should not just be about whether you need new glasses! At Kite Opticians we are dedicated to preserving the health of your eyes and ensuring you maintain excellent vision. In order to do this we keep ourselves at the forefront of eye care with the latest technology and specialist expertise. Your eye examination will be performed in a thorough and unhurried way.
We are one of only a few opticians in Suffolk to offer OCT 3D scans of your eyes. This advanced technology enables us to provide a more advanced eye examination than ever before. An OCT scan of your eye allows us to visualise the layers of the retina at the back of the eye in a similar way to a MRI or CAT scan. It provides a 3D image, enabling the Optometrist to pick up any problems at a much earlier stage. Many common diseases such as glaucoma, Macula Degeneration (AMD) and diabetes can damage the retina.
The 3D scan is not part of the NHS eye test but is performed as part of an extended examination. It is non-invasive, painless and quick! The images are stored on computer for comparison at future visits, providing the best way of monitoring the health of your eyes.
Your eyes are arguably your most important sense, so taking care of them and helping them to work efficiently requires the support and guidance of experts.
