Livertons install the latest technology.

Liverton Opticians have recently installed the latest OCT (optical coherence tomography) technology.

OCT is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with the diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.

Not all opticians provide this service and, where it is available, often make high additional charges. At Liverton Opticians we consider this to be of paramount importance in monitoring the health of your eyes and include the test in our standard eye examination at no additional cost to you.

Love Your Lenses Week.

Contact lenses are work safe and loved by millions of people. However, research shows that not all contact lens wearers know how to look after their lenses properly.

The first ever Love Your Lenses Week is taking place between 25th and 31st March 2017. If you’ve not seen your optician in a while, it’s a prime time to book in for an aftercare appointment.

At these appointments, your optician will check that your contact lenses are fitting correctly and that your vision is good, and will talk to you about the best ways to care for your lenses to make sure your eyes stay healthy.

If you love your eyes, you should love your lenses. As well as cleaning and storing contact lenses properly, there are other steps that should be taken, such as making sure they never come into contact with water and always taking them out before you go in the bath or shower.

World Glaucoma Week!

Glaucoma is easy to diagnose and treat but is a major source of sight loss in the developed world.

If you suffer from it, it is virtually impossible to be aware before damage has been caused but it is readily detected in the standard eyesight test and can easily be treated.
