OPTOS Ultra-widefield Imaging


OPTOS Ultra-widefield imaging is now available at Northern Sydney Cataract and optomap is a part of our comprehensive eye exam.

We are proud to announce our new fundus fluorescein angiogram available at our clinic. This allows us to provide full scope care for medical retina patients, including the treatment of AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vascular occlusions. Optos produces ultra wide-field images with a field of view up to 200 degrees, compared to standard angiogram images of around 70 degrees. This enlarged field of view influences the management of conditions that affect the peripheral retina, in particular diabetic retinopathy and vascular occlusions.

Dr Dov Hersh | Oculoplastic and Ophthalmic Surgeon

I am pleased to announce that Dr Dov Hersh is now consulting at Northern Sydney Cataract | Retina | Glaucoma.

Dr Dov Hersh is an oculoplastic and ophthalmic surgeon with rare dual international fellowship qualifications in both oculoplastics and medical retina. He specialises in scarless endoscopic lacrimal surgery, minimally invasive lid surgery and periocular tumour management.

Dr Dov Hersh also offers the latest treatments in the management of cataract and retinal disorders. I have known Dov for many years now, and I know that he understands the importance of listening to his patients needs and takes pride in keeping up-to-date with the evidence and latest advances in ophthalmology, so he can individualise the care he provides.

I am very excited to be work with Dov, and I am sure you will be impressed with the feedback from your patients in the future.

Optic Nerve Pit

Case studies: Optic Nerve Pit with sub retinal fluid

Optic Nerve Pit OCT

This is a photo of a 17 year old female I saw last week. This is an Optic Nerve Pit with sub retinal fluid. It is a congenital condition. She presented with a 3 day history of blur and distortion in the right eye, with the blurring and distortion moving to the central part of her visual field 1 day ago. She presents acuities of the right 6/90, no improvement with pinhole and the left 6/6.

Normally, an isolated optic nerve pit would not call for any treatment. However, due to the sub-retinal fluid, this patient will require a vitrectomy. I’ll keep you updated on his progress.

vitreomacular traction

Case studies: Vitreomacular Traction

This is a photo of a 65 year old male I saw last week. This is vitreomacular traction however, he presents with excellent vision – 6/4.5 bilaterally.

At this stage he doesn’t require treatment, but he has been advised to return in a few months. Meanwhile, he will self-monitor with an Amsler Grid and knows to come back if his vision changes or he notes any distortion. I’ll keep you updated on his progress.

World Glaucoma Week

World Glaucoma Week is held in March each year to increase awareness about glaucoma

During World Glaucoma Week (8 – 14 March, 2015) you can Beat Invisible Glaucoma in families by hosting the B.I.G Breakfast.

If you have glaucoma, you can use the occasion to inform your family:

  • They have an increased risk (up to 10 times higher than the general population) and
  • Their best protection is to have a regular and comprehensive eye check that includes a review of their optic nerves. This is more than just an eye pressure test.
