Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

The OCT is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section scans of different parts of the eye. With the OCT, each layer of the retina can be evaluated and measured for thickness which can aid in detecting and managing various eye diseases including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and many others.

Retinal Camera

A retinal camera takes a digital photo of the back portion of the eyes including the optic nerve, macula, and retinal blood vessels. An internal view of the eye can help the doctor diagnose ocular disease as well as systemic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Retinal photos can be taken as baseline image for future comparison. 

Visual Field

By evaluating someone’s peripheral vision, a visual field test can help in diagnosing many conditions from glaucoma to multiple sclerosis, and even brain tumors. The visual field test is performed one eye at a time with light flashes at varying brightness and random locations. The patient is instructed to look straight ahead and to press a button every time he/she detects a flash of light. Once both eyes have been tested, the doctor can observe the pattern and determine the cause for the peripheral vision defect if there is one.

Corneal Topographer

The cornea is a curved clear structure on the front surface of the eye that helps light pass through and focus on the retina. The curvature of the cornea affects how well someone sees and how a contact lens will fit. The corneal topographer is a computer that maps the cornea and measures the curvature. This is especially important when a patient is believed to have an irregular corneal surface and may need a specialty contact lens due to corneal disease, refractive surgery, or to examine the extent of injury.

Digital Refractions

When determining the glasses prescription, our doctors use the Marco TRS 5100 providing our patients with the latest generation of electronic refraction technology. Using the automated refraction system not only makes the process more efficient, but also produces a more accurate and reliable prescription.
