Retinal photography

To help your vision last a lifetime, we provide digital retinal photography at McCrystal Opticians. Using a fundus camera we are able to take a digital retinal photograph of inside your eyes.

The picture is a detailed image of your retina – the back of your eye – allowing you to see what we see; as well as keeping a permanent photographic reference of your eye health so we can review it again when you come back to see us next time.

This can reveal a lot about your eye sight, your overall well-being, and can even detect underlying health conditions.
That allows McCrystal Opticians to take a detailed picture of the back of your eye.  It helps us to closely monitor your eye health. But digital retinal photography doesn’t just help us spot sight-related problems. It can also highlight a range of other conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, risk of a stroke and symptoms associated with brain tumours.

Non Contact Tonometer

A tonometry test measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure. This test is used to check for glaucoma, an eye disease that can cause blindness by damaging the nerve in the back of the eye. Damage to the optic nerve may be caused by a buildup of fluid that does not drain properly out of the eye.

Frames Camera System

When you take your glasses off to try on some new styles, chances are you’ll peer into the mirror and all you will see is an unflattering blur. Well no more, as we have a frame camera system. Our skilled optical assistants will help you pick out some frames, advising you on style, fit, and lens compatibility. We can then use our in built camera system to create a gallery of images as you try on each frame in turn. Now you can put your old glasses on to study the gallery, zooming in and out to see details or side on views, you are able to compare each frame with ease!!
