Diagnostics and examination

The ophthalmologist performs an examination as a prophylactic measure for regular monitoring of the health of the eyes and prevention from possible visual function disorders as well as, in case of already existing diseases, for determining the strategy and tactics of treatment.

At our clinic in Kyiv you can have the following diagnostic services, including computer examination:
• examination and consultation with an ophthalmologist,
• optical coherence tomography,
• photo of the eye-bottom,
• fluorescent retinal angiography.
All diagnostic procedures at our clinic are offered to customers at the most democratic prices.

Examination: ophthalmologist’s consultation and computer diagnostics

In the process of consultation the ophthalmologist, first of all, listens to the patient’s complaints, asks clarifying questions and then performs diagnosis. Then he carries out an examination to identify the causes, the stage, the forms of the disease. Based on the results of the initial examination and the questioning of the patient, diagnostic procedures are prescribed.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is used for diagnostic examination. This method easily visualizes various eye structures with high resolution (1 to 15 microns).

Conducting OCT allows to check the status, carry out examination and assessment of the following:
• changes in the retina and nerve fibers;
• thickness of the nerve fiber structures;
• parameters of the optic disc;
• changes in the anatomical structures of the anterior segment of the eye and their spatial relationship.

The optical coherence tomography makes it possible to perform accurate diagnosis in case of glaucoma and to assess the extent of the disease as well as to check for age-related macular degeneration.

Examining of the eye-bottom by a photo

After taking a computer photo of the eye-bottom at our clinic, the patient gets an opportunity to check his condition and to discuss with the doctor the necessary course of treatment.
Pictures are taken at the request of the patient, or if there are indications for the following:
• retinal dystrophy, including macular degeneration;
• diabetes;
• glaucomatous atrophy of the optic nerve;
• myopia, hyperopia;
• morbushypertonicus;
• atherosclerosis;
• neoplasm of the eye-bottom;
• hemorrhages in the retina and choroid;
• suspected thrombosis of the vessels of the eye.

The eye-bottom photo makes it possible to detect such a serious and disabling disease as retina detachment; the picture also allows to determine ruptures.
With the help of a photo it is also possible to distinguish the nevus pigmentosus, a kind of eye-bottom pigmentation disorder requiring regular examination by an ophthalmologist in order to exclude neoplastic transformation.
In the process of diagnosis of the vessels of the retina, the optic nerve and the choroid of the eye, an up-to-date X-ray contrast method of examination is used – the fluorescent angiography of the retina.
The procedure is as follows: after intravenous administration of a special contrast medium, high-frequency computer survey of the vessels of the eye-bottom is performed. This method improves the visualization of small vessels and the choroid, providing for general assessment of the vascular bed of the retina and circulation in it. Also, it makes it possible to register changes in the configuration of the vascular system.

Checking and treating the eyesight at the ophthalmologist

The ophthalmologist diagnoses and cures diseases of the eyeball, eyelids, lacrimal organs, conjunctiva and orbitals.
Diseases treated by the ophthalmologist:
• myopia – impairment of the function of the organ of vision when a person can not clearly see objects at a distance;
• far-sightedness – impairment of the function of the organ of vision when a person can not clearly see the near objects;
• conjunctivitis – inflammation of the mucous membrane of the eye;
• cataract – opacity of the lens;
• glaucoma – increased eye pressure causing visual impairment;
• astigmatism – impairment of the shape of the lens or cornea;
• retinal diseases

You should immediately turn to the ophthalmologist for consultation and examination if you have one or several of the following symptoms: pain or burning feeling in the eyes, impairment or sharp deterioration of vision, lacrimation or injury
At the Kyiv “VIZIOBUD” clinic, only most experienced specialists are engaged having an individual approach to each case. The prices for services will pleasantly surprise you.

Comments

Many thanks! Our mother underwent surgical cataract treatment by the FACO emulsification method with implantation of a soft monofocal intraocular lens. The operation was done superbly, no complications, my mother sees perfectly. And everything was done in a very short time, and before turning here, we were trying to undergo treatment during half a year, yet only saw endless queues and were wasting our time and nerves.
