Visual Acuity test is one of the fundamental examinations in ophthalmology. It is used to determine the presence of refractive anomalies and other sight-stealing eye problems. It represents a simple visual test with a Snellen chart – table with different sized symbols. This test is done on each eye, one at a time, at a distance of 5 m or 35-40 cm.

Refractometry is an instrumental examination Oxycom Medical Center uses the TONOREF III to perform. It represents a laser scan of the eye that provides information about the presence of refractive anomalies like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It is pain-free and quick method of examination.

Ocular tonometry is a non-contact procedure of measuring the intraocular pressure. Oxycom Medical Center uses the TONOREF III to perform tonometry. The patient sensation reminds a faint flow of air, directed at the eye.

Corneal pachymetry is the process of measuring the thickness of the cornea, used to diagnose a variety of diseases, most commonly – glaucoma.

A keratometer is a diagnostic instrument for measuring the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea, particularly for assessing the extent and axis of astigmatism. It is extremely important for treating cases of cataract and other corneal diseases.

The Plusoptix apparatus provides a non-contact method for examination the presence of refractive errors even in the youngest of children (over 6 months) in a calm environment.

Stereoscopic vision is the highest and most essential function of the eye – it gives us the world in 3D. Using different tables, this examination helps identify diseases such as microstrabismus.

Amsler Chart helps identify the presence of macular disorders like macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy etc.

When planning cataract surgery, the natural eye lens is clouded and must be replaced with an artificial intraocular lens. It must be accurately calculated so the patient would not need glasses after the intervention.

A perimetry test (visual field test) measures side and peripheral vision. During the test, the patient sits in front of a half-spherical object and must stare at the center of it. Every time he/she sees light flash, he/she presses a button. The Perimetry test helps us find the areas of the visual field where there’s vision loss or diminished light sensitivity. This test is extremely important for identifying glaucoma developing.

Echography is a routine examination in ophthalmology. It helps measure the dimensions of the bulbus oculi (the eyeball), as well as visualize the individual structures in the bulbus and obits. It is most useful in cases of limited visibility, caused by cataract, corneal cloudiness or vitreous hemorrhage.

After a cataract surgery, a frosting layer often forms behind the artificial intraocular lens. Patients can experience eye-sight reduction all over again. YAG laser treatments create tiny aperture in the lens capsule so light can cross it freely again. The pupil must be dilated before YAG laser can be performed, but the procedure takes little time and causes no pain or discomfort. There are no limitations to the patient lifestyle after it.
