The Scheimpflug is a rotating camera which captures images of the anterior eye segment. A Scheimpflug measurement process takes less than two seconds to measure each eye, and then generates images and corneal maps used for diagnosis and treatment of cataracts, glaucoma and corneal problems. Currently Medicare do not offer any refund for this test.

 


Gene Therapy Appeal

Tasmanian Eye Institute is funding a dedicated Ophthalmic Gene Therapy Centre to be located in Hobart. This will be the first of its kind in Australia. 60% of blindness in infants is caused by inherited (genetic) eye diseases.

Help combat previously untreatable genetic eye diseases by making a donation to this life changing treatment.
