OUR SPECIALTY SERVICES
In addition to our general eye examinations, we also offer a broad range of specialty optical services including:
DRY EYE CLINIC
We are the leading providers of dry eye treatment in Shepparton, offering specialty services for those suffering from dry, irritable or weepy eyes. Beyond providing lubricating eye drops, we offer antiseptic eyelid cleansers, heat compresses and blephasteam treatment. Conducted in-house, blephasteam is a very effective heat treatment for the tear-producing glands of the eyelids, which will improve your eyes’ ability to produce their own tear ingredients.
RED EYE TREATMENT AND METAL FRAGMENT REMOVAL
We’ll use our slit lamp and diagnostic dyes to determine the cause and effective treatment of red eyes. Our optometrists are qualified to prescribe eye drops to treat the underlying causes of red eye, including conjunctivitis, inflammatory eye conditions and embedded metal fragments.
Laser Surgery Assessments
Laser surgery for the treatment of refractive error has been widely used in Australia since the 1990s. Now, thanks to technological advancements, results have improved and this procedure is a viable option for many people. At Graham Hill Eyecare, we can conduct an extensive examination to determine your suitability for laser surgery. This will involve testing the stability of your prescription and the structural capacity of your eyes. We’ll also conduct additional tests required for this assessment, including pachymetry and corneal topography. We are able to perform preoperative and postoperative assessments for all laser clinics.
A contact lens treatment for myopia (short-sightedness) and low degrees of astigmatism, orthokeratology involves wearing a rigid contact lens at night to reshape the cornea so that glasses and contact lenses are not needed during the day. Orthokeratology is adaptable to changing prescriptions and research shows that this is the most effective method of myopia control, meaning that it can keepthe progression of short-sightedness at bay
