Slit Lamp Examination

for Ophthalmology Eye Checks

The lamp facilitates an examination of the human eye, which includes the eyelidscleraconjunctivairis, natural crystalline lens, and cornea. The binocular slit-lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions.

Non-Invasive Ultrasound scanning

An ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. It is suitable for use during pregnancy.

Ultrasound scans, or sonography, are safe because they use sound waves or echoes to make an image, instead of radiation.


Nasoscope/Rhinoscope for ENT Examination

A Rhinoscope (or Nasoscope) is a thin, tube-like instrument used to examine the inside of the nose. A Rhinoscope has a light and a lens for viewing and a tool to remove tissue.


ECG Machine Heart Monitoring

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) records the electrical signal from our heart to check for different heart conditions.

Electrodes are placed on your chest to record your heart's electrical signals, which cause your heart to beat. The signals are shown as waves on an attached computer monitor or printer.

IV Infusion of Medications

Some medications must be given by an intravenous (IV) injection or infusion. This means they're sent directly into your vein using a needle or tube.
