Samantha Hague Optometry

Technology

Technology in Optometry makes it easier than ever to carry out thorough, comprehensive eye examinations, dispense spectacle lenses and offer treatment.

Hague Optometry has heavily invested in modern, state of the art equipment to ensure we are offering you the highest, most current form of care.

Whether that’s detecting eye disease, prescribing lenses for clearer vision or simply just reassuring our patients that everything is well, having the most up-to-date leading-edge optometry equipment helps us do this with confidence. From eye health checks to verifying refractive errors, the latest technology allows us to offer the best possible personalised care to all our patients.

Our consulting room is beautifully designed to accommodate our equipment giving you a comfortable, efficient experience with our Optometrist, Samantha Hague, who will talk you through every step of your consultation and explain the equipment used, involving you as much (or as little) as you want.

Optos Daytona NG

Optomap digital retinal imaging is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image, while traditional imaging methods produce a retinal photograph which typically only shows 15% of your central retina at any one time. An OPTOMAP takes only seconds to perform, is painless and comfortable; nothing touches your eye at any time and it is suitable for everyone.

Using Optomap technology, we can scan up to 200 degrees of the retina. Most traditional methods allow only a 45 degree view. This allows us to examine the health of your eyes in much more detail and detect and monitor many eye conditions at a much earlier stage. Early signs of disease can be present in the far-periphery of your retina, for instance retinal tears, and may remain undetected for a long time when using traditional methods. Detecting these conditions early enables earlier intervention with better chance of treatment success. 

Hague Optometry is one of a handful of practices in the region able to offer our patients direct access to this most amazing technology. Optomap wide-field retinal imaging is strongly recommended as part of your Eye Examination and is available in our extension to the NHS Sight Test.

OCT – NIDEK RETINA SCAN DUO

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the next generation in imaging the internal structures of the eye. Conventional methods of eye examination only able the optometrist to see what is happening on the surface of your retina, when a lot of conditions of the eye start at a much deeper level. The unique way the image is formed means that for the first time we can actually see below the surface of the retina and view the microscopic layers beneath. This is of profound importance in determining the precise diagnosis of visual problems and in helping us guide patients on the treatment options possible. 

OCT is quick, safe and non-invasive and enables us to diagnose so many more eye problems at the earliest possible stage, in some instances up to 5 years earlier than would be possible otherwise enabling a much greater chance of early treatment and successful outcome. In many cases, early detection can even prevent a condition from developing at all, thus helping us to do our job, which is to help maintain your sight.

Hague Optometry is able to offer patients direct access to the most sophisticated eye examination available. 3D OCT retinal imaging is strongly recommended as part of your Private Eye Examination and is available in our extension to the NHS Sight Test.

Common conditions identified through regular OCT screening include: Age-related macular degeneration and drusen, glaucoma, diabetes, macula holes and vitreous detachments

i-Care

The iCare tonometer is based on a rebound measuring principle that requires no drops and no air-puff. A tiny light-weight probe is used to make a fleeting, very light contact with the front of the eye and most patients report not feeling anything at all to feeling a sensation similar to someone tickling their eyelashes. I-Care’s latest premium and innovative design and interface bring intraocular pressure measurement to a new level.

Nidek RT-5100 Phoropter

The phoropter replaces the need for close contact eye testing. With removable eye shields it is quick and easy to clean between patients and the lenses are concealed behind sealed units minimising contamination risk. The unit replaces the traditional trial frame which can often be heavy and cumbersome and enables a more accurate and fluid sight test with remote control lens changes or ease of comparison for the patient.

Oculus Easygraph Topographer

Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea helping in the detection of irregular conditions invisible to most conventional testing. Corneal topography produces a detailed, visual description of the shape and power of the cornea providing your optometrist with very fine details of the condition of the corneal surface and measurements which can be used in the accurate fitting of contact lenses adding confidence and trust to all contact lens consultations.

Oculus Smartfield

The OCULUS Smartfield is a compact visual field device purposefully optimized for monitoring functional impairment in glaucoma and performs standard automated perimetry of the central visual field and beyond. Despite its small size, the Smartfield perimeter offers a comprehensive clinical solution in visual field testing for any glaucoma practice. In addition, the control software offers a wide array of state-of-the-art measurement procedures for diagnostic and follow-up examinations.

Keeler Symphony Digital Slitlamp

The digital slitlamp enables our optometrist to assess both the front and the back of the eyes, microscopically examining your eyes for any abnormalities or problems. Our instrument allows us to photograph your eyes for education and monitoring purposes with a discrete integrated camera.

BlephEx™

BlephEx™ is a revolutionary patented hand piece, used to very precisely and carefully, spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids. BlephEx™ allows our optometrist to take an active role in treating blepharitis, reducing scurf and bacterial debris, the main causes of inflammatory lid disease, and improves the overall health of the eyelid helping our patients enjoy a life free from the chronic and irritating symptoms associated with blepharitis through regular BlephEx™treatments.

The BlephEx™ treatment is well tolerated and only takes a few minutes to perform.

Eye Ruler 2

The Eye Ruler 2 from Essilor enables us to take measurements quickly and accurately. 67% of patients believe there is a strong impact on lens performance when measured with a tablet, due to the advanced levels of precision. All of this enhances your lenses enabling the best possible vision and comfort. This is the world’s most compact measuring device as well as being lightweight and a familiar device for patients to use.
