State of the art testing equipment added to identify macular degeneration

At Taank Optometrists, we care about the health of your eyes. For this reason we now offer a new way to screen for potentially serious conditions that can affect not only your eyes but your overall wellbeing. Using our state-of-the-art retinal camera, we can take a digital image of the back of your eye.

This technology provides a very thorough and simple way of assessing your eyes’ health and makes it easier to detect subtle conditions, which might affect the eyes. It also allows us to quickly diagnose a number of common eye conditions including diabetes, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. This scan is non-invasive, simple and quick. The image will be stored so that any changes to the condition of your retina can be monitored with every eye test. Retinal Photography is available to everyone and at Taank Optometrists, we recommend retinal photography to all of our patients.

Digital Retinal photography is available at a supplementary charge to NHS patients.
