What is Eye Screening?

Many eye diseases and problems have no symptoms. Eye screening enables early detection of sight-threatening conditions.

 

Many of such eye conditions go unnoticed during early stages and it may be too late for treatment when it affects your vision.

 

Early detection and treatment of these conditions can often prevent any permanent vision loss. This is especially important if you or your family have these following symptoms:

  • Diabetes Mellitus

  • Family history of blinding eye conditions e.g. glaucoma

  • High myopia (more than 600 degrees)
     

Package includes:

  • Vision Test, Tonometry (Glaucoma)

  • Retina Photography (Diabetes)

  • Slit Lamp Examination (Cataract)

  • Optical Coherence Tomography AMD, Diabetes & Glaucoma)

Basic Eye Screening

 

CT Sinuses

Computed tomography (CT) of the sinuses uses special x-ray equipment to evaluate the paranasal sinus cavities – hollow, air-filled spaces within the bones of the face surrounding the nasal cavity.

 

CT scanning is painless, noninvasive and accurate. It’s also the most reliable imaging technique for determining if the sinuses are obstructed and the best imaging modality for sinusitis.

 

Tell your doctor if there’s a possibility you are pregnant and discuss any recent illnesses, medical conditions, medications you’re taking, and allergies.

Thyroid disease is a common problem that can cause symptoms because of over- or under-function of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is an essential organ for producing thyroid hormones, which maintain are body metabolism.

 

What are some common uses of the procedure?

An ultrasound of the thyroid is typically used:

  • to determine if a lump in the neck is arising from the thyroid or an adjacent structure

  • to analyze the appearance of thyroid nodules and determine if they are the more common benign nodule or if the nodule has features that require a biopsy. If biopsy is required, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration can help improve accuracy of the biopsy.

  • to look for additional nodules in patients with one or more nodules felt on physical exam

  • to see if a thyroid nodule has substantially grown over time

 

Is an endoscopic examination of the velopharynx, or the nose, often with a CCD camera or a fiber optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the nostril. It can provide information to evaluate speech and velopharyngeal function or dysfunction, as in diseases such as sinonasal carcinomas
