Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy accounts for a significant proportion of vision impairment in Australia as a result of the increasing incidence of diabetes in Australia.  Retinopathy occurs when the retinal blood vessels begin to leak. This can damage the nerve cells in the retina and if left untreated can cause irreversible vision loss. Regular eye examinations and OCT scans (speciality services) allow for early detection and more effective treatment.

Graham Hill Eyecare • Glaucoma


Glaucoma is an irreversible optic nerve disease most commonly caused by a build up of pressure within the eye. It results in a gradual tunnel vision effect. As central vision is the last to be affected, glaucoma is often not noticed until it is quite advanced. Treatment usually involves the daily use of pressure lowering eye drops. People over 40 and those with a family history of glaucoma are at greatest risk.  OCT nerve scans (speciality services), eye pressure tests and  side vision assessment are used to detect this condition.

Early diagnosis, best with OCT scan (speciality services) is crucial to the success of these treatments.
