Visual Acuity Test

Visual acuity measures clearly the patient can see from the snellen chart and/or projector apparatus.
Eye Movement Examination and Cover Test

This test enables the optometrist to distinguish orthoptic problem such as esophoria, exophoria, hypophoria and hyperphoria. The examiner asks the patient to look up and down, and to the right and left to see if the patient can move the eyes to their full extent. The examiner asks the patient to stare at an object, then quickly covers one eye and notes any movement in the eye that remains uncovered.

Lens that automatically darkens when outdoors and lightens when indoors.
Advancing technology and demanding lifestyles increasingly expose us to the harmful effects of Ultra-Violet(UV) light and Electro Magnetic Interference(EMI).
Whether we are outdoors engaged in our favorite sport or indoors using our computers our eyes are exposed to electro magnetic radiation.
Today, we have Greymatic Photochromic Lenses that provide full UV and EMI protection for our eyes.
People often complain of headache, eyestain and fatigue when working in front of a computer
or Video Display Unit (VDU) screen for a long time. This is largely a result of prolonged exposure
to Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI). Greymatic Photochromic Lenses address this problem by
shielding our eyes from the damaging effects of EMI.

optical-colorblindnessColor Blindness, or Color Vision Deficiency, is an eye condition where a person is not able to distinguish certain colors or shades of colors to some degree. Color Blindness does not mean that a person can only see black and white. A person with color blindness is able to see different colors, however they are not able to see some colors due to deficiencies in the eyes. Color blindness is a hereditary condition but can also be caused by eye diseases, damage to the retina and macula, and aging or when the lens is darkened over time from a cataract. Although there is no absolute treatment for hereditary color blindness, there are methods, techniques, and special glasses that may help people with color blindness differentiate different colors but not truly see them.

Special enhancement lenses are effective glasses for color blindness. These lenses are most effective at correcting red and green color deficiencies. While glasses for color blindness are not as effective at correcting the inability to see blue and yellow, some patients see adequate improvement with their use. The glasses are not able to create any permanent improvements in color blindness, but are effective at changing the eyes’ ability to sense different colors.

white-house-optical-clinic-manila-color-blind-testSince color blindness is considered to be a genetic disorder, regular prescription glasses are not effective. In the late 1990s, special color lenses were developed to help individuals who suffered from a red and green color deficiency. These glasses for color blindness are effective at bringing out shades of red and green. They also help bring a brightness to shades that individuals with color blindness typically see as faded.

Some individuals may not find glasses for color blindness effective. While most colorblindpatients suffer from an inability to distinguish between reds and greens, the small percentage of patients who are not able to discriminate between yellow and blue hues will see little benefit from these types of lenses. Those with extreme cases who are only able to see shades of black, grey and white will not gain any benefit from glasses for color blindness.

It is important that patients realize that glasses for color blindness will not give them 100 percent normal eyesight. These lenses increase the differences between different shades. They make it more likely that those with color blindness will be able to see an enhanced version of the colors they find it difficult to distinguish.

In order to be as effective as possible, only one special enhancement lens is worn. This allows the brain to process the fact that the eyes are actually seeing separate colors. If both eyes look through the special enhancement lenses with the same tint, the same level of color blindness will remain. Some individuals choose to use two lenses, but each one has a separate tint, which has proven to be just as effective as using one tinted lens.

When glasses for color blindness are worn, there tends to be an improvement in only certain areas. Other aspects of patients’ visions may be compromised by their use. For example, most are not able to wear the lenses while driving since they impair the ability to judge distance in low light conditions. Fluorescent and three-dimensional effects may also be seen when using the lenses.

white-house-optical-slit-lampThe slit lamp is an instrument consisting of a high-intensity light source that can be focused to shine a thin sheet of light into the eye. It is used in conjunction with a biomicroscope. The lamp facilitates an examination of the anterior segment, or frontal structures and posterior segment, of the human eye, which includes the eyelid, sclera, conjunctiva, iris, natural crystalline lens, and cornea. The binocular slit-lamp examination provides stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions.

Adults need no special preparation for the test; however children may need some preparation, depending on age, previous experiences, and level of trust.

The slit lamp exam may detect many diseases of the eye, including:
Cataract, Conjunctivitis, Corneal injury, Fuchs’ dystrophy, Keratoconus, Macular degeneration, Presbyopia, Retinal detachment, Retinal vessel occlusion, Retinitis pigmentosa, Sjögren’s syndrome, Uveitis and Wilson’s disease (Kayser-Fleischer ring)
