Every patient who has a full eye test or pre-operative refractive surgery consultation at Optical Express receives a personal iScan report. This report includes details of the health, prescription and diagnostics of each of your eyes. The iScan report and the specialised computer software required for its compilation was developed by our expert team here at Optical Express.
Your iScan report includes the detailed results of your eye examination and, if undertaken by us, adverse changes in your eye health since your last test. It brings together information important that helps our optometrists and surgeons to identify early signs of disease, such as glaucoma and cataracts, as well as a number of other eye and general health conditions. Early diagnosis can be essential in preventing or delaying more serious damage.
An iScan report is sent by email to every patient following a full eye test or eye surgery consultation at Optical Express. * If you have any questions regarding the content of your iScan report please contact the clinic you attended and they will be happy to help you.
Whilst your iScan report after your first eye test with us includes valuable information it is where there is a record of repeat tests undertaken by us that its value to our clinicians and to you is most readily appreciated.
Changes in eye prescription can be monitored through your iScan report simply and methodically.
The density of a cataract and the effect that it has on your visual acuity, can be tracked by your iScan report.
Diabetes is a serious health condition, which can have a huge impact on vision.
Raised blood pressure and signs of heart disease can be visible in your eyes and should be monitored for screening purposes.
This is a leading cause of blindness. Macular changes and developments can be monitored via the iScan report.
Glaucoma is an eye condition where your optic nerve is damaged by the pressure of the fluid inside your eye. It can be detected during an eye test by monitoring simple trends, such as raised IOPs, visual field loss and changes in the optic nerve.
This condition changes the shape of your eye's outer window, but it can be identified by keratometry and pentacam instruments during an eye test.
iScan forms part of our informed consent process for patients who are considering eye surgery. Your personalised report will provide you with a greater understanding of your vision and required treatment.
