A quick non-invasive OCT exam reveals details which help doctors detect potentially debilitating eye diseases, like macular degeneration, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy, and supports them in making treatment decisions. Doctors have found that early diagnosis and treatment may help to preserve vision.
OCT is a breakthrough in eye care that has allowed doctors to more easily detect eye disorders. The OCT is used to capture detailed images of the eye. The information from OCT images helps your eye doctor to diagnose and manage potentially damaging ocular diseases which, if left untreated, can lead to blindness or seriously impact a person’s quality of life.
The visual field test is a subjective measure of central and peripheral vision, or “side vision.” It is used by your doctor to can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, pituitary disease, brain tumors or other neurological deficits.
Electroretinography is useful in diagnosing several hereditary and acquired disorders of the retina, including retinitis pigmentosa, a detached retina or functional changes in the retina caused by arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) or diabetes.
Anterior Segment Imaging:
Anterior segment imaging allows for high resolution photography that allows the doctor to carefully examine the structures of your eyes. The cameras assist in documentation, diagnosis, and patient education.
Fundus Photography Imaging:
Fundus Photography is used to inspect anomalies associated to diseases that affect the eye and to monitor the progression of the disease by comparing photographs from one year to the next.
Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea. The cornea (the front window of the eye) is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye’s focusing power. An eye with normal vision has an evenly rounded cornea, but if the cornea is too flat, too steep, or unevenly curved, less than perfect vision results. The greatest advantage of corneal topography is its ability to detect irregular conditions invisible to most conventional testing.
Corneal topography produces a detailed, visual description of the shape and power of the cornea. This type of analysis provides your doctor with very fine details regarding the condition of the corneal surface. These details are used to diagnose, monitor, and treat various eye conditions. They are also used in fitting contact lenses and for planning surgery, including laser vision correction.
Ultrasonography is a non-invasive instrument used to improve visualization of the structures of the eye in cases in which the fundus is obscured from visualization, as in patients with dense cataracts or vitreous hemorrhage. The use of ocular ultrasonography allows the doctor to image the vitreous and retina to detect vitreous degeneration and may also result in earlier detection of ocular melanoma, retinal holes, retinal detachments, and certain optic nerve conditions.
