We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
Corneal topography, is a device that allows the front surface of the eye to be imaged. The aids in the detection of astigmatism, or keratoconus. In addition it helps your optometrist decide if you would be a good candidate for LASIK or other corneal procedures.
Digital Retinal Imaging
Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. 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. With this test your optometrist can better detect issues like macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and glaucoma.
Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots, peripheral vision loss, or potentially even detection of neurological issues like stroke or aneurysm.
