Dr Munro’s Equipment includes:-
Optos Panoramic Daytona-Plus camera captures an ultra wide field retinal colour Digital Scan.
Heidelberg Spectralis OCT and OCTA records precise macula detail and non-invasive 3D images of blood flow in the eye.
Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA3) with Liquid Lens focussing technology.
Nidek Advance RS 3000 OCT.
Ellex Ulra Q Reflex YAG Laser for Iridotomy and Capsulotomy.Oculo-graph Corneal Imaging System.
Heidelberg Anterion anterior sement swept source OCT for keratometry and biometry.
Haag Streit slit lamp Microscope with Digital Camera plus viewing screen.
DR BRUCE MUNRO USES ADVANCED SCANNING TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING 3 OCT MACHINES TO HELP DETECT EYE DISEASE.
The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) can reveal 3D images of the optic disc and macula, and provide non-invasive 3D images of blood flow in the eye . The exam only takes a few seconds. Nothing touches your eyes, there are no puffs of air, and no flashes of bright light, but Dr Munro may need to use eye drops to make your pupils larger.
DAYTONA-PLUS ULTRA-WIDEFIELD RETINAL IMAGING
Ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging introduced by Optos is increasingly becoming a standard of care for primary eye care providers. The Daytona-Plus technology is designed to simultaneously capture a digital image view of the retina from central pole to periphery. The images allow for the detection, documentation and monitoring of ocular pathology and systemic disease that may first present in the periphery.
ELLEX ULTRA Q REFLEX LASER CAPSULOTOMY POSTERIOR CAPSULOTOMY
A cataract occurs when the eye’s focusing lens, which lies just behind the pupil, becomes cloudy and obstructs the transmission of light to the retina. While surgery to replace the natural lens with an implanted artificial lens is the only way to correct cataracts, approximately 20 percent of patients will experience a side effect from the surgery called secondary cataract. In the case of a secondary cataract, the posterior capsule, a thin membrane that lies just behind the implanted lens becomes clouded over with scar tissue that grows in response to the surgery. The most effective way to treat a secondary cataract is a simple laser procedure called posterior capsulotomy.
During posterior capsulotomy treatment a laser photo-disruptor is used to create an opening in the centre of the clouded posterior capsule which removes the obstruction once again and allows light to reach the retina. The procedure is painless, requires no anaesthesia and typically results in improved vision within a day. Laser capsulotomy is performed whilst sitting at the slit lamp microscope table, with assistance by a staff member to help you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
LASER ULTRA Q REFLEX IRIDOTOMY
A less common form of glaucoma occurs when the aqueous fluid flow is obstructed by the anatomy of the eye blocking the path for fluid to reach the trabecular meshwork. This is known as Angle Closure Glaucoma (ACG) and often treated by performing a Laser Iridotomy with a photo-disruptor. During iridotomy, a laser is used to create a tiny opining in the peripheral iris that allows fluid to flow directly into the anterior chamber from behind the iris. This typically resolves the raised intraocular pressure and allows the anatomy of the eye to return to its normal state. Laser peripheral iridotomy is performed whilst sitting at the slit lamp microscope table, with assistance by a staff member to help you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
