Photography is an integral part of an eye examination, according to KW Opticians in Cashel.

And with their new stat-of-the-art retinal camera, they can photograph the back of the eye (retina) using Retinal Imaging Systems.

These digital photographs show the detail of the inside of the eye allowing them to carry out a thorough analysis, to ensure that everything is normal. These images are stored as part of your clinical records, enabling a comparison to be made at a later visit.

Your eyesight is priceless and deserves the best possible care. At KW Opticians, you are offered a comprehensive eye examination, with fully qualified optometrists, using state-of-the-art technology to determine if you need vision correction and to check if your eyes are healthy.

Without good eyesight, everyday activities such as reading, driving and watching TV becomes difficult. You may suffer discomfort or visual headaches due to poor eyesight.

Early detection of eye problems is important. Routine eye examinations check for early signs of sight-threatening conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Screening for changes in the eye due to diabeties is also a part of a routine eye exam.
