Special Eye Testing
Special eye tests mean extra special eye care!
Optical Coherence Tomographer (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. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of 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.
ZEISS / Humphrey Visual Field Testing
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.
Our anterior segment camera helps us to document skin types as well as lesions and morphological abnormalities of the skull, eye lids and surrounding areas. We can also use pictures of the head and shoulders, face and eyes to document nerve anomalies.
Automated Refraction Lane
Thanks to its continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power, Vision-RTM 800 phoropter enables reaching the final refraction more quickly than the traditional refraction methods. In addition, “Smart Tests” and their unique algorithms assist the practitioner in conducting the whole refraction procedure. Refraction is made both very easy and very accurate!
Our Vision-RTM 800 phoropter offers continuous power changes and reinvents refraction.
- A more accurate phoropter for a more precise refraction.
- An easier procedure for a fully reliable prescription.
- A more comfortable experience for the patient
Optomap Ultra-Widefield Retinal Image
The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.
The benefits of having an optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:
- Optomap facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness
- Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease
The unique optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams
Retinal Digital Imaging – Fundus Photography
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.
Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea. The three-dimensional map is a valuable aid to the examining optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation (plano or toric IOLs); in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK, and evaluating its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses.
