What does an Optometrist do?
Optometrists are primary health providers, and are often the first contact for people who are experiencing problems with their eyes or having difficulty seeing.
Optometrists have a unique role in providing accessible and vital eye care to the community. You do not need a referral to see an optometrist. Optometry is only one of two professions that can provide Medicare rebates without first obtaining a referral.
Optometrists are qualified to diagnose eye disorders and diseases, such as cataracts and glaucoma. They identify health disorders involving the eyes such as diabetes and thyroid problems and examine eyes for vision disorders. They also prescribe, fit and supply glasses and contact lenses and devices for the visually impaired.
They do not perform invasive surgical interventions (eg cataract surgery, retinal detachments) but are able to perform foreign body removal.
Introducing a new dry-eye treatment
Dry eye syndrome is a chronic condition mainly caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and affects as much as 20% of our patients with symptoms increasing with age.
Many aspects of our modern lifestyle like computer screens, artificial lighting and even air conditioning can further contribute to dry eye syndrome, causing irritation, headaches and various other symptoms.
Our optometrists will tailor a treatment plan for you based on your dry eye needs which may include a course of both IPL and RexonEye sessions.
RexonEye dry-eye treatment
Rexon is a new technology for the treatment of dry eye and Meibomian gland dysfunction.
Gulf and Ranges Optometrists are excited to announce we are the first and only practice in South Australia to offer this treatment.
You will receive four x 20 minute sessions over 4 weeks.
This new treatment will deliver long-term relief to dry eye sufferers.
IPL dry-eye treatment
IPL is designed for the treatment of dry eye due to Meibomian gland dysfunction.
Intense pulsed lights are used to stimulate the Meibomian glands to recover their function and provide relief from dry eye symptoms.
