Retinal Exam Singapore

Early Detection Saves Sight

Retinal Exam In Singapore

A yearly retinal exam can help detect eye diseases in their early stages, when treatment is most effective. This can help prevent vision loss and preserve overall eye health.


Retinal Examination Process

Here are the steps you will experience during a retinal examination:

Preparation: Our Optometrist will inform you that you can blink normally and to keep still, which helps provide a better view of the retina.

Positioning: You will be seated comfortably in front of the funduscopy machine, with your chin resting on a chin rest and your forehead against a support bar. This helps keep your head steady during the exam.

Light and Magnification: Our skillful optometrist will adjust the light and magnification settings on the funduscopy machine to provide a clear view of your retina.

Examination: Our optometrist will use the funduscopy machine to capture the image of your retina and optic nerve, looking for signs of disease, damage, or other abnormalities. They may also take a few more photographs of the retina for further analysis.

Results and Recommendations: Once the exam is complete, our Optometrist will discuss the results with you and provide recommendations for any necessary follow-up or treatment. This include prescription updates, lifestyle changes, or referral to a specialist for further evaluation or treatment.

Why Schedule Retinal Screening?

Consider getting a retinal screening as it is a painless and non-invasive procedure.

Our optometrists examine your retina and optic nerve to detect various eye diseases and conditions that affect your vision;

A condition that causes increased pressure in the eye, damaging the optic nerve and leading to vision loss.

Diabetic Retinopathy
A complication of diabetes that damages the blood vessels in the retina, causing bleeding, swelling, and scarring.

Macular Degeneration
A condition that affects the central part of the retina, causing blurred or distorted vision.

Retinal Detachment
A condition that occurs when the retina separates from the back of the eye, causing flashes, floaters, or a curtain-like effect in your vision.

Detecting these issues early will help our optometrists recommend appropriate treatment options to prevent further damage and preserve your vision.
