Our equipment at Vision Splendid

Modern equipment for your benefit

Our optometrists ensure that we always have the most up-to-date technologies to provide the best possible clinical treatment. We retain our passion for optometry by keeping up with incredible technological advances, such as the latest computerised imaging and scanning equipment, the revolution in contact lens designs and materials, the increased sophistication of spectacle lens technology and the beauty and fashion of spectacle frames.


The Optos machine is the most advanced digital retinal imaging equipment available. It records up to 200° of the retina instead of only 45° captured by standard cameras used in most optometry practices. Our new technology allows us to record a significantly larger portion of the retina in a single photograph. The image is shown on a high-resolution monitor, which can be utilised to detect early stages of retinal change. Macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachments and diabetic retinopathy are just a few of the prevalent eye illnesses that the imaging system can detect and track. Every eye examination includes an Optos image, which will be taken at each visit to ensure that any changes in your eyes can be detected.

Visual field testing

Visual field testing (also known as computerised perimetry examination) provides your optometrist with detailed information about your eye health. It aids in determining where your peripheral vision (side vision) begins and ends, as well as the clarity with which you can perceive items in your peripheral vision. This test is often done when there is a suspicion of the eye disease glaucoma. If your optometrist has any concerns, you will be required to have this test done. This testing is Medicare bulk billed.

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a powerful non-invasive diagnostic imaging technology. It provides our optometrists with vital information about the health of the retina and assists in the diagnosis of retinal disorders and glaucoma. Macular degeneration, diabetic retinal disease, oedema and glaucoma can all be detected and monitored with an OCT. This is not a Medicare-covered service. For further information on the charges involved, please contact our staff.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a revolutionary treatment for dry eye syndrome that uses high-intensity light pulses to stimulate the meibomian glands in the eyelids. This enables the eyes to better lubricate themselves. The treatment can provide long-lasting relief from the symptoms of dry eyes, such as redness, irritation, and discomfort. It can also reduce the reliance on alternative treatments for dry eye including lubricant eye drops, ointments and steroid medications.

How does IPL work for dry eye? IPL works by delivering short bursts of light energy to the meibomian glands, which are responsible for producing the oily layer of tears that keep the eyes lubricated. The heat from the light pulses can help to unclog the glands and stimulate the production of healthy tears. This, in turn, can reduce the symptoms of dry eye and improve overall eye health.

How many treatments are required? The number of IPL treatments required can vary depending on the severity of the dry eye condition. However generally, patients will require 4 treatment sessions spaced 3-4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Symptomatic improvement is expected after 3 sessions. To ensure long-term improvement, additional single sessions are required once every 6 - 12 months.

At our clinic, we use the latest IPL technology to provide safe and effective treatment for dry eye syndrome. If you're experiencing symptoms of dry eye, contact us to book an appointment with one of our optometrists, and find out if IPL treatment is right for you.

Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a specialised diagnostic tool we use to map and analyse the shape and curvature of the cornea, which is the transparent front surface of the eye. This non-invasive procedure provides detailed information about the corneal surface, helping optometrists diagnose and manage a variety of eye conditions. Corneal topography involves the use of a computerised instrument that projects rings of light onto the cornea. The reflections of these rings are captured and analysed to create a detailed colour-coded map of the cornea's shape and curvature. This map provides valuable information about the cornea's elevation, astigmatism, irregularities, and other factors that affect vision. At our clinic, we utilise state-of-the-art corneal topography technology to provide accurate assessments of corneal shape and curvature. This aids in delivering personalised and effective treatment plans for our patients.

Corneal topography is useful for several purposes:
