Comprehensive Ophthalmology & Imaging

Cao Thang Eye Hospital’s Comprehensive Ophthalmology & Imaging Service is managed by a team of fully-accredited ophthalmology specialists.
Dr. Nguyen Dung, assisted by experienced optometrists and support staff, heads the Service and performs the following procedures below.

OCT for Macula and Glaucoma
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a medical imaging technique that captures three-dimensional images of biological tissues using near-infrared light.

This procedure is widely used to assess macular degeneration, thanks to the high-resolution images of the anterior segment of the eye and of the retina that it provides.

This procedure has also proved reliable to monitor the progression of glaucoma.
OPD Scan: Intraocular Lens Calculation for Cataract Surgery
A wrong power calculation results in unsuitable output for the patient.

Cao Thang Eye Hospital’s Imaging Service aims at maximizing the success rate of operations and does so by using the best biometrical technologies.

Cao Thang Eye Hospital uses the most-cutting edge OPD Scans to ensure that the implantation of an Intraocular Lens (IOL) following a cataract removal is tailored for the patient’s eye.
Angiography, an Eye Blood Vessel Imaging Procedure
Angiography – or Fluorescein Angiography – is an eye examination intended to picture the blood vessels within the patient’s eye.

It is not an x-ray procedure, therefore no radiations are involved.

It allows doctors to check the blood flow within the patient’s retina and to look for abnormal vessels (swelling, etc.) and tumors.

Patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, sickle-cell anaemia are at risk and necessitate such examinations.
It is performed with a dye that is injected in the patient’s arm. This dye will enable the camera to take pictures of the blood vessels in the patient’s eye.

The examination is completed within a short time and causes little if any discomfort.
