Investigations

The investigation procedures at Moorfields Eye Hospital Abu Dhabi take a deeper look into every part of the eye and surrounding area. Using sophisticated scanning equipment, highly accurate patient records are created to determine an appropriate treatment plan.

Pentacam

Pentacam

Combined device consisting of a slit illumination system and a Scheimpflug camera which rotates around the eye to give an automatic measurement of an over-all view of the anterior segment of the eye. It provides topographic data on elevation and curvature of the entire anterior and posterior corneal surface, used also for kerataconus detection and monitoring and glaucoma screening.

Corneal_Topography
Corneal Topography

Nerve Fiber Layer Analysis

A non-contact measurement of the thickness of the nerve fibre layer. It is used in the early detection and the assessment of progression of glaucoma.

Visual_Field_Test
Visual Field Test

Visual Field Test

An automated test of peripheral visual field in a reproducible and internationally recognised format.

Anterior_Segment
Anterior Segment

Anterior Segment Scanning

A non-contact precise measurement of the anterior segment of the eye including cornea, drainage angle, anterior chamber, iris and anterior lens surface. It is used in the management of glaucoma, uveitis, difficult cataracts, complicated cataract surgery and other diseases of the anterior chamber.

Retinal_Scanning
Retinal Scanning – Spectralis OCT

Retinal Scanning

A non-contact precise measurement of the retina (posterior pole), retinal pigment epithelium and choroid. It is used in the management macular disease (especially macular holes and macular degeneration), diabetic eye disease and the assessment of reduced vision.

Retinal_Scanning
Ocular Photography

Ocular Photography

Digital photography to record the appearance of all parts of the eye and it surrounds. It is used to document the patient’s current situation for later comparison. It includes ultra wide field photography, fundus flurescein angiography, auto fluorescence.

Fluorescin_Angiography
Fluorescein Angiography

Fluorescein Angiography

Digital imaging of the retina (and occasionally sclera and iris) following the intravenous injection of fluorescein to assess perfusion and vascular integrity. It is used particularly in the management of age related macular degeneration and diabetes.

Corneal_Topography
Corneal Topography

Corneal Topography

Digital imaging of the retina (and occasionally sclera and iris) following the intravenous injection of fluorescein to assess perfusion and vascular integrity. It is used particularly in the management of age related macular degeneration and diabetes.

Anterior_Segment
Endothelial Camera

Specular Endothelial Camera

A camera which measures the density of the corneal endothelial cells which is necessary before corneal transplantation and other corneal procedures.

Cataract_Biometery
Cataract Biometry

Cataract Biometry

A non-contact measurement of the length of the eye and size / shape of the cornea to calculate the strength of the lens implant needed to correct vision after cataract extraction.

Ultrasonography
Ultrasonography

Ultrasonography

Imaging of the inside of the eye using ultrasound, it is used where the view inside the eye is obscured for whatever reason, or to measure the size of features inside the eye. It is often used in the assessment of diabetic eyes before surgery.
