Medical Technology

OCT
OCT (ocular coherence tomography) is one of the most innovative new technologies on the market. It allows your optometrist to view your optic nerve (the nerve which transmits what you see to your brain) and the layers of the retina (the back internal covering of the eye essential for acute vision) in cross-section. It helps to diagnose glaucoma, swelling or hemorrhaging in the back of the eye, macular degeneration and many other retinal eye problems.

GDx
GDx stands for Glaucoma Diagnosis. It is a new computerized test that measures the thickness of the eye nerve tissue. It is similar to taking a picture of the inside of the eye. It is painless, quick and does not require that your eyes be dilated. It is used for diagnosis of early glaucoma, for follow up of glaucoma treatment, and in early detection of glaucoma in relatives of glaucoma patients.

Retinal Imaging
Retinal Imaging is digital photography of the back surface of the eye that allows your optometrist to diagnose, treat, and follow glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, large freckles that can potentially be cancerous, blood vessel changes due to high blood pressure, and many other diseases. It allows us to monitor these diseases with year to year comparisons accurately for stability or progression. These findings can be critical to our patients' overall health.

Topography
Topographical mapping of the cornea is a very valuable tool used in both the diagnosis of corneal disorders and the fitting of the contact lenses. A very quick and non-invasive test, disks of light are reflected off the eye and then digitally imaged and evaluated, providing us with detailed information about surface irregularities and curvatures. This technology can turn a previously poor candidate for contact lenses into a happy, successful contact lens wearer.

Visual Fields
Visual Field is an instrument which gives your optometrist critical information in diagnosing certain blindness-causing diseases. It allows us to treat and follow progression of diseases like glaucoma and optic neuritis (associated with multiple sclerosis). It also helps us diagnose certain types of tumors, strokes, aneurysms, and other neurological and vascular diseases.

Pachymetry
The latest research on Glaucoma has uncovered an aspect of the eye's anatomy that has been found to be a very prominent risk-factor for glaucoma, corneal thickness. This very quick test accurately measures the corneal thickness, which gives us another piece of the puzzle when deciding to begin treatment on borderline cases.
