Special Testing Means Extra Special Eye Care

 

 

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated.

We recently upgraded to OCT with AngioPlex® which offers a major step forward in making retinal disease management and treatment planning more efficient and effective

Fundus Camera

A high-definition digital image of the retinal area helps your eye doctor diagnose and manage eye diseases in the delicate retinal area. Damage to these delicate structures of the retinal area is often the first sign of systemic diseases such as MS, diabetes and more. The retina is the “window to the body” and routine retinal imaging can help your eye doctor monitor the changes in your eye health from year to year.

Visual Fields

Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.

The OCULUS Keratograph® 5

A groundbreaking piece of imaging equipment that changes the way we diagnose and treat eye diseases. This brand new machine is among the latest advances in optometry, it is especially useful for testing, diagnosing and treating dry eye disease.

The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M integrates a high definition camera, keratometer, and corneal topographer into one seamless and state-of-the-art imaging machine. Surface eye diseases are no match for this precise and innovative tool, which integrates with computer technology to create detailed, full-color digital images of your eye.

If you have dry eye disease, we will use the round camera lens to examine your Meibomian glands (also called your tarsal glands). These glands produce the oil layer of your tear film, which keeps them from drying out and evaporating. The Keratograph allows us test the break-up time of your tear film, the height of your tear meniscus, and the condition of your eye’s lipid layer
