Eye Exam (2 hours)
Examination by a specialist in the corneal consultancy clinic
Patients with a corneal disease are offered the opportunity to be examined in our specialized consultancy clinic. Unique medical equipment, PENTACAM, enables us to make an early diagnosis of keratoconus (a degenerative disorder in which the cornea is progressively thinning and begins to bulge) or other corneal diseases, including post-injury conditions. MUDr. Petr Novák, Head Physician, is a consultant focused on this issue also within his clinical practice. Potential continuity with other specialized examinations or surgical solutions, including cornea transplantation, is provided herewith. In addition to cornea disorder issues, a lens disorder can be examined in this specialized out-patient setting.
This full examination of approximately 2 – 2.5 hours includes a general health and eye history, determination of the exact dioptre strength, thorough examination of the anterior eye segment, intraocular pressure measurement and a tear test. In addition, there will be a retinal examination with the prior application of eyedrops to dilate the pupils. The sight of the examined patient can be slightly blurry for a couple of hours after this examination, therefore, driving cars is not recommended after the examination.
If necessary, additional specialized examinations, such as field of view examination, strabismus analysis, etc. can be performed.
