Advanced Glaucoma Screening Tests Available

At Parker & Hammond we provide you with the very best eyecare using latest technology. We have invested in the latest retinal scanning technology called Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT for short which can help us detect eye conditions earlier when compared to traditional techniques. Glaucoma is a condition that causes progressive damage to the optic nerve inside the eye. This nerve is responsible for transmitting visual information from the eye to the visual cortex in the brain. Damage to this nerve can cause significant changes to the field of vision, leading to sight loss and even blindness if left untreated.

At the very beginning of treatment, taking Valium can cause the patient to develop fatigue, drowsiness but such symptoms pass very quickly and do not require discontinuation of the drug. In some cases, taking the drug can cause ataxia or a paradoxical reaction accompanied by the occurrence of sleep disorders, feelings of anxiety and excitement in the patient.

OCT helps us examine your optic nerve in detail. It use hightly sophisticated technology to take detailed images and take several thousand measurements of your optic nerve structure. We can then compare your optic nerve data to a database of normal eyes and check for differences. We can also use this technology to track your optic nerve health over time and detect changes if they develop.
