OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) The OCT of the eye is a highly specialized scan that can provide 3D imaging of diseases BENEATH the retina. This is something that cannot be seen by regular examination. When scanning the optic nerve, the OCT can diagnose damage up to 5 years before it occurs and can be picked up by conventional testing.
Digital Retinal Imaging
A specialized camera that images the inside of the eye. This enables us to better diagnose and monitor any conditions affecting the eye such as diabetes, high blood pressure and autoimmune disorders.
Visual Field Testing
A machine with complex computer programming that measures how well the optic nerve is functioning and how well the signal your eye receives is transferred to the brain. This test can help in the diagnosis of glaucoma, pituitary tumors as well as other brain disorders.
A computerized instrument that creates a visual map of the surface of your cornea. With this machine, precise measurements are taken and then used in the proper fitting of your eye with a contact lens. This machine can also be used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as keratoconus.
