SCREENING FOR DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, GLAUCOMA AND MACULAR DEGENERATION

Fundus photography

We have digital fundus cameras in our practices in Merthyr Tydfil and Tredegar.  They enable us to take high resolution images of the back of your eyes. We can use them to monitor changes caused by all sorts of eye conditions. In particular, signs of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration or diabetes.  It also helps us to make more accurate diagnoses of eye conditions and arrange treatment more efficiently.  If you would like to take advantage of this service please contact either practice to book an appointment.


Vision assessment for Armed Services applications and other occupational applications including colour vision testing

We are able to perform all necessary tests for a wide range of occupations including the armed services.  If you need a particular type of vision test for any reason please mention it to the receptionist when booking your appointment.  Don’t forget to bring all appropriate paper work with you!


Vision assessment for DVLA applications

We are able to provide information to help patients fill in an application for a driving license.  If you would like us to help you with this then please bring the paperwork with you when you come for your sight test.


Employer-funded sight test for VDU users

If you work with computers or other visual display units you may be entitled to have a sight test funded by your employer.
