Our Equipment

Bankstown Eye Specialists is equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and manage eye diseases.



Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT):

OCT is non-invasive imaging technique using infrared light to optically capture cross-sections of the cornea, anterior chamber angle, retina and optic disc with high resolution and precision. This enables the diagnosis, management and follow-up of diseases of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye.

Optos Ultrawide Field Imaging

Optos Ultrawide Field Imaging:

The Optos uses special scanning laser technology to image up to 80% of the retina in a single image, much more than what could be captured previously. Optos ultrawide field fundus autofluorescence is a special imaging technique using special filters which allows visualisation of the metabolic function of the retinal pigment epithelium which is important in many diseases of the retina. Optos ultrawide field fundus fluorescein angiography is an imaging technique using special filters to allow visualisation of the blood vessels of the retina which is damaged in many disease of the retina.



This test measures the shape and size of the eye in order to calculate the correct intraocular lens power for cataract surgery.

B-Scan Ultrasound

B-Scan Ultrasound:

This test is used to provide a two-dimensional cross-sectional image of the eye. This is useful for managing conditions of the back of the eye especially when there are opacities obscuring the view of the back of the eye.

Visual Field Analysis

Visual Field Analysis:

This is a test to detect and follow-up visual field loss in the central or peripheral vision caused by conditions such as glaucoma and strokes.

Corneal Topography

Corneal Topography:

This test provides a highly detailed map of the contour of the corneal surface. Irregularities caused by inherited conditions (such as keratoconus), disease, contact lens, or refractive surgery can be diagnosed and managed.


Treatments that we provide include:



Retinal Laser

Retinal Laser:

The retinal laser is used to treat conditions such as retinal tears and bleeding from blood vessels due to diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions and choroidal neovascular membranes.

Micropulse Laser

Micropulse Laser:

This special laser minimises the damage to the retina compared with conventional lasers by using an extremely short duration of the laser pulse. This is important in diseases affecting the macula which deals with central vision.

YAG Laser

YAG Laser:

This laser is used to clear a posterior capsular opacity after cataract surgery, to create a hole in the iris to prevent angle closure glaucoma or to break up vitreous opacities in those with vitreous floaters.

SLT Laser

SLT Laser:

This laser is used to treat the trabecular meshwork to help lower the intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients.

Intravitreal Injections

Intravitreal Injections:

Intravitreal injections are used to deliver medications into the back of the eye to treat conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions, diabetic macula oedema, and infections or inflammations within the eye.

Minor-Op Procedures

Minor-Op Procedures:

Our minor-ops procedure room is equipped to handle most minor lid procedures, and external eye procedures.

Major eye procedures:

For surgeries such as cataract surgery and vitreoretinal surgery, we operate at the Sydney Retina Clinic and Day Surgery (187 Macquarie St, Sydney), Liverpool Eye Surgery (1 Moore St, Liverpool) and The Sydney Private Hospital (63 Victoria St, Ashfield).
