Are there any special requirements for getting ready for eye testing?
No special requirements, please just follow few rules:
Please avoid use of alcohol the day before the tests.
Women are advised to avoid use of decorative cosmetics on the day of testing. If you wear soft contact lenses you can remove them in the clinic just before the checks, hard lenses should be removed 2 weeks before the testing day. You should carry on you an ID. If you have results of previous examinations please bring them along to show to the doctor during consultation.
Why pass computerized diagnostics? Can it discover anything that a doctor from a polyclinic can’t find?
Many eye diseases especially at early stages may develop with no symptoms at all. While the early treatment is most effective in most cases. The modern diagnostics equipment allows to carry out non-contact testing, and the results do not depend on how precisely the patient followed doctor’s instructions. This testing is objective and comprehensive providing complete and true information about size, functioning and structure of the eye bulb for the doctor. The comprehensive computer assisted diagnostics at EXCIMER Clinic includes the following tests: vision acuity evaluation; refraction and intraocular pressure measurements; field of vision examination; ultrasonic testing of eye inner structures (including cases when media is not transparent); corneal shape and refraction power evaluation; retina and optic nerve condition check, and many other parameters. The diagnostic equipment available at EXCIMER Clinic allows doctors to detect refractive abnormalities (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism), eye refractive media disorders (corneal and crystalline lens opacification) , as well as receptor problems occurring in cases of glaucoma, diabetes and retinal dystrophy. The diagnostic testing results in comprehensive information on the visual system condition, allowing doctors to detect early development stages of most eye disorders and take the most effective measures for treatment.
I am short-sighted, I heard that one cannot give birth unassisted when this disorder is present. Is it not harmful for pregnant to go for eye testing with the use of computer-assisted devices?
Comprehensive diagnostic testing is pretty safe for a pregnant as well for a future baby. Moreover the testing is recommended for those pregnant women who have never had any eye problems whatsoever. It is recommended to go for an eye check twice during pregnancy: between weeks 10 to 15 and 34 to 36. Endocrine profile of pregnant women changes radically causing change of the visual system condition. The greatest hazard for eye-sight during pregnancy and giving birth is not near-sightedness itself, but the retinal condition deterioration (degenerative or dystrophy changes). It often becomes a reason for natural birth contraindication and the necessity to go for a Caesarean. Therefore it is important that the diagnostics cover both the eye optics and the retinal condition.
