As an independent practice, Eugene Botha Optometrists strive to provide a comprehensive array of modern, current and relative Optometric services, in a one-stop, friendly and professional environment.
1. EYE EXAMINATION
Detecting possible eye conditions or eye changes that may affect the clarity, comfort or health of your eyes should be the motivation for adhering to annual visual examinations for us all. Early detection of possible visual system problems may avoid loss of function or vision.
As an independent practice, we are able to allocate one hour
of working time to each patient as standard. This allows for comprehensive evaluation and assists in better decision making,
which in turn benefits the patient and helps attain the service
level we strive for.
2. SPECTACLE LENSES
There are a wide variety of ophthalmic spectacle lenses on the market, with each type having unique features and benefits.
Spectacle lenses are specially ground surface polished optical quality refractive powered lenses, which allow for accurate focus of transmitted light rays through the lens onto the retina. At Eugene Botha Optometrists, we are very proud to be able to offer a comprehensive diversified range of high-quality spectacle lenses to our patients.
3. CONTACT LENSES
E K Botha Optometrists have some of the latest and most sophisticated optical equipment and fitting sets, currently used in specialised contact lens practices. This equipment greatly assists in the successful fitting of contact lenses for the more regular myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism through to the more advanced contact lens fitting of high astigmatism, irregular corneas or diseased corneas such as found with Keratoconus.
Gas permeable and silicone hydrogel materials are examples used to provide better physiology, comfort and wearing time of contact lenses.
In conjunction, new manufacturing technologies, as well as sophisticated contact lens, designs vastly improve the possibility of providing a contact lens solution, which E K Botha Optometrists strive to achieve.
