The world’s most advanced eye scanning technology, used by NASA to monitor vision in astronauts aboard the International Space Station, is now available in Portsmouth. The machine uses in-depth 4D analysis to scan and provide clear images of the full 12 layers within the retina to provide early detection of any problems.

Anne said: ‘It feels fantastic to know we really are offering something that makes us stand out from the crowd and is doing so much good for the people we care for.’
