Practice Technology

At Parker Optometrists we always like to keep up with modern advances in instrumentation to ensure that our patients receive the best possible eye care.

To this end we have installed a digital fundus camera which takes a photograph or the back of the eye, the retina. This allows us to share with you a clear picture of your ocular health and keep a permanent record of any progressive eye conditions that may be present. It is a painless and quick procedure which produces an instant digital picture that can be stored for later reference.

We have also installed the latest in accurate visual field testing equipment that allows us to check your peripheral vision which can be useful in the early detection of glaucoma and various other ocular conditions. In addition to this it is an integral part of the DVLA driving licence test which enables us to ensure that our patients are safe to take to the road.

Varifocals are now a very popular lens to correct distance and near vision but to perform to their best they need to be very accurately fitted. We have recently installed the latest Nikon technology to ensure these measurements are completely accurate.
