In conjuction with Essendon Eye Clinic we have started a new specialized retinal service called Essendon Retina. This service provides a unique mix of diagnosis and treatment technologies for North West Melbourne. Fluorescein angiography- a requirement for the treatment of exudative (wet) macular degeneration can be done on this site.
Essendon Retina has the most modern technology available on site including
Optical Coherence Topography
Optos Ultra Wide Field Fluorescein Angiography
Corneal Topography and Pachymetry
Anterior, Posterior and Indirect segment lasers
Electroretinography and Visual Function Testing
The clinic has a dedicated on-site minor theatre with an operating microscope for minor operations and intravitreal injections.
Electrophysiology tests- useful for the detection of plaquenil toxicity, retinitis pigmentosa and other conditions are also done here. A comprehensive range of visual function tests including contrast sensitivity colour vision testing and dark adaptometry- all useful for visual function reports.
