Custom Contact Lenses
Customised contact lenses could be the way forward for you if you can't wear standard prescription contact lenses. The reason for this could be that you suffer from too much astigmatism or have irregularly shaped eyes, either way customised contact lenses could be the way to go.
Chat to us if you feel your regular contacts are uncomfortable or cause additional vision problems and Rianda Gilliland, our qualified optometrist (B.Optom - UFS), will be able to assist you.
All of our custom-made contact lenses are available in both rigid gas permeable (RGP or GP) and soft lens materials. These customised contact lenses may be able to provide sharper vision and even greater wearing comfort than regular lenses.
At Oxia Optical we offer a fully equipped optical dispensing practice supporting our patients with hard and soft lenses provided by some of the worlds best brands. We can assist with your custom-made lenses in Cape Town or the greater metropolitan area.
Retinal imaging with our on-site fundus camera
Colour Fundus Retinal Photography, which is sometimes referred to as digital retinal imaging, uses a specialised fundus camera to record color images of the interior surface of the eye. These images are then used to search for certain medical conditions which can be picked up using this highly sensitive apparatus. These medical conditions picked up by Color Fundus Retinal Photography include diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, macular edema and retinal detachment. Fundus photographs allow the optician to take a better look at the back of the eye than when an ophthalmoscopy is performed and it allows them to aid in as well as evaluate and monitor certain eye diseases.
If you would like to book an eye test with Oxia Optical in which we can perform a retinal photograph, please go to our Book An Eye Test page.
3D OCT Imaging
At Oxia Optical, we offer Optical Coherence Tomography as part of our detailed eye disease detection and diagnosis consultation process. The OCT procedure is a noninvasive imaging technology which we use to obtain high resolution cross-sectional images of the patients retina.
This OCT Test is commonly performed when we are looking for either glaucoma or macular degeneration. This procedure can in most cases be performed without pupil dilation, however it is usually included as part of a patient's dilation exam. This baseline test is quick to perform and in most cases usually takes about 10 minutes to complete. Please note however that repeat Optical Coherence Tomography Scans will take approximately 5 minutes per eye.

The in-depth eye care consultation we perform enables our optician to conduct intensive screening for early detection of multiple diseases.
Many people are under the impression that if they have no manifested visual symptoms, that there is no need to have an eye examination at least once a year. During the detailed eye examination we perform, many early signs of potential diseases can be detected and therefore treated before they cause further serious health issues. The eye disease test we perform can for example pick up the following conditions:
Dry Eye Syndrome
High Blood Pressure
