In certain cases, additional special methods of eye examination are required that use advanced equipment, in order to clarify the diagnosis and appoint treatment.
EYE DIAGNOSTICS AT THE RCMC
The RCMC performs the following diagnostic examinations:
- Study of the field of view using all currently known methods. We perform both manual and computer-assisted perimetry which involves view field color testing.
- We use the only MICROPERIMETRY equipment available in Belarus!
- Intraocular pressure measurement: (the so-called “pneumotonometry”) this is performed at modern stations, as well as using the Maklakoff's technique. We also perform 24-hour tonometry.
- Corneal topography serves to analyze the properties of the anterior and posterior areas of cornea.
- Pachymetry -- the cornea thickness study.
- Ultrasonic eye examination: A-mode and B-mode ultrasound, as well as ultrasound eye biomicroscopy.
- Echo biometry (an ultrasonic examination involving eye parameter estimation) -- both using the contact and IMMERSION techniques!
- Endothelial eye biomicroscopy;
- Gonioscopy -- anterior chamber examination;
- Eye fundus examination using the fundus lens -- this type of examination which uses modern fundus lenses enables diagnostic of any retina section pathologies;
- Fluorescent eye fundus angiography -- this is an examination essential to diagnose macule pathologies, vascular abnormalities, and to reveal and differentiate eye fundus neoplasms including malignant neoplasms.
- Video retinoscopy allows to conduct an ongoing monitoring of pathologic processes by comparing images of the eye fundus;
- Electrophysiological eye examinations, or electroretinography;
- Optical scanning tomography of retina and the optic nerve;
- Optical eye biometrics (OEB) -- this is a contactless estimation of eye parameters: linear dimensions of the eye lens, anterior chamber, eye length, the thickness and curvature radiuses of cornea, etc. The study makes it possible to assess stability of the above parameters over time. OEB is necessary to determine the parameters of intraocular lenses (artificial eye lenses) including premium class (toroidal and multifocal) lenses used in operative cataract therapy.
At our Center, we are able to conduct this examination using the scanning tomography function to study the macular area!
After the examination, you will be provided with specialist’s recommendations and an individual therapy program to ensure comprehensive treatment.
TO HAVE THE DIAGNOSTICS PERFORMED, YOU WILL NEED:
- refrain from using soft contact lenses for five to seven days before the examination;
- bring the ophthalmologist’s examination report (if any);
- bring your passport, sunglasses and a handkerchief;
- refrain from driving a vehicle for four to five hours following the examination;
- refrain from wearing any makeup.
HOW CAN I HAVE MY EYES DIAGNOSED AT THE RCMC?
In order to use the Center’s diagnostic capabilities, you will need to have a referral of your consulting physician for the examination. To make a reservation for the examination, you will need:
- Call the Contact Center to make an appointment
- Conclude an agreement for the provision of paid services at the reception
- Pay the bill at the cash desk of the RCMC or through ERIP for the initial appointment with an ophthalmologist (all additional examinations are paid separately after the appointment)
- Arrive at the appointment on time.
