Examinations

Practitioners referring to CFEH can request either a test suite or specific tests.

Test suites based on diagnosed or suspected eye condition

Diabetic Retinopathy Assessment

  • Presenting visual acuity (monocular and binocular)
  • Fundus photography of the posterior pole
  • OCT of the macular region
  • Dilated fundus examination with binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy and slit-lamp fundoscopy

Glaucoma Assessment

  • Presenting visual acuity (monocular and binocular)
  • IOP measurement and pachymetry
  • Visual field assessment
  • Mono/stereo photography of the optic nerve head
  • Quantitative evaluation of the peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer
  • Dilated fundus examination with binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy and slit-lamp fundoscopy

Age-Related Macular Degeneration Assessment

  • Presenting visual acuity (monocular and binocular)
