Eye disease management
At The Eye Practice we are expert Optometrists in the CBD Sydney.
Early detection of eye diseases can save precious sight. Our comprehensive eye tests include tests for Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts, just to name a few.
We like to see your eyes in two distinctly different ways: First, as a finely-tuned optical instrument – much like a camera – which may need a pair of glasses or contact lenses tailored to give you the clearest and most comfortable vision possible, but we also see your eyes as the organs of sight and a great deal of our focus is on the health of those organs.
Just like the rest of your body, your eyes are prone to a variety of diseases and dystrophies and our expert optometrists will thoroughly examine all aspects of your eye health.
Our routine eye test includes diagnostic tests that are only available from world-class eye care practitioners. We routinely photograph (and image in 3D with OTC) the important structures at the back of your eye, not only to discover if there is disease present but also as a baseline for future comparison. Our highly experienced team likes to think of itself as hyper-vigilant on your behalf. Your eye examination will also include a test of your peripheral vision to screen you for eye diseases such as glaucoma.
At The Eye Practice we manage a range of ocular conditions, with a particular focus on dry eye diagnosis and management. Dr Jim Kokkinakis is therapeutically qualified and can treat most eye diseases in house.
We work closely with some of Sydney’s best ophthalmologists to co-manage your eye conditions – from glaucoma to macular degeneration, from diabetic eye disease to cataracts.
Over the years our optometrist team has developed a unique interest in specialised contact lenses for diseases such as keratoconus and eyes that have had a corneal transplant. We are one of the very few practices in Australia that has access to and fits every type of therapeutic contact lens from hard lenses, rigid gas permeable, orthokeratology, hybrids and mini sclerals and even the most complex lenses, called sclerals.
