Visiting Dr. Sciberras has always been a satisfying experience. You leave the office having been “taken care of” by an expert! Patient since 2015.

Digital Retinal Camera – Dr. Sciberras now offers an improved digital retinal wellness imaging technology. Our new digital retinal camera allows us to take wider images of the retina and optic nerve head with greater resolution and color accuracy. With this new technology, retinal photographs can be taken without dilating eye drops and even in the presence of cataracts. The state-of-the-art software allows us to store, review and enhance the images to clearly document eye health. Serial photos can be compared to detect any changes to the retina and optic nerve at future visits. Images can be immediately emailed to you for personal records. This technology will benefit you with earlier diagnosis and more accurate eye health documentation.
Visual Field Analyzer – The Humphrey FDT Analyzer can quickly measure a patient’s peripheral vision. It uses a technology known as frequency doubling (FD) to assess a patient’s sensitivity to movement and peripheral vision. The FDT is used as a screening tool to aid in detecting glaucoma, optic nerve disease, as well as stroke assessment.
Autorefractor/Keratometer – serves two functions:
1. Autorefraction: the instrument focuses light into the patient’s eye and measures the amount of light reflected by the eye’s retina. In doing so, the instrument is able to provide an accurate estimate of the patient’s prescription, which the doctor can then use as a guide in helping determine and fine-tune the final prescription for glasses and/or contact lenses. This autorefraction test take only a few seconds to complete, is completely painless, and is performed on all patients prior to seeing the doctor for their eye exam.
2. Autokeratometry- the instrument measures the curvature of the cornea, or front of the eye, to determine contact lens fitting and optical integrity of the eye. This unit is also capable of mapping the corneal curvature, a higher order reading to detect subtle corneal disease such as keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration and the effects of contact lens wear.
Huvitz Digital Refraction System
This recent acquisition represents a significant shift in the exam process. The digital refraction system offers a more accurate and less time-consuming determination of your spectacle prescription. It also enables immediate one-touch comparison of your new prescription compared to your current spectacles. Prescription determinations can be frustrating for patients, but the new system makes the process faster, more concise and easier for the patient to make subjective choices in the determination of the best vision possible. “Your vision matters to us” was the determinant in the decision to acquire this exam enhancement.
The Ocutouch System is a patient education software that provides interactive eye anatomy animations to complement the doctor’s explanation of your eye exam findings. This helps each patient fully understand their diagnosis, risks and treatment options, allowing them to easily grasp otherwise difficult eye-related concepts.
Smart Mirror Ipad
Our new Ipad application has four major benefits that we are happy to provide our patients as a free service. First, the app allows our patients to try on glasses so that they can be viewed while wearing their own glasses. The images can be emailed to family and friends for second opinions as well. Up to four frame styles can be compared simultaneously. The app also serves as a great visual educational tool on the different lens technologies and coatings that are available to them. It also allows us to show how thick the lenses will look based on a particular combination of prescription and frame choice. Last, but definitely not least, it allows us to take the precise frame and eye measurements to take full advantage of today’s digital lens technologies. This tool thereby allows us to provide superior, more accurate eyewear delivery and ultimately greater patient satisfaction in their visual outcome.
