Digital Retinal Imaging (Optomap)
It captures a 180-degree digital image of the retina, in most cases, avoiding the inconvenience and light sensitivity of pupil dilating eye drops. This revolutionary technology allows the doctor and the patient to review the images and the comparison of past images chair-side.
Electronic Medical Records
Our offices document all aspects of the examination with a computer, rather than by the historic inconsistencies of the pen and paper. In addition, all of the computerized instruments we utilize are tied electronically to the patient’s medical chart.
Computerized Objective Refraction
It calculates the eyeglass prescription of the eye in less than one second. It is used as an accurate reference in the determination of the final prescription and very helpful in the examination of children and older adults.
Computerized Subjective Refraction
This new instrument avoids the historic difficult decisions when patients were asked, “which lens is better, # one or # two.” This computerized exam splits the screen presenting the two choices side-by-side for easy and confident comparison attaining precise prescriptions.
Maps the topography of the entire front surface of the eye, whereby, other techniques simply measure the center. Topography is useful in the precise fitting of contact lenses, estimating outcomes for refractive surgery and the progression of certain eye diseases.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
It obtains a 3-D cross-section of the retina allowing us to better understand disease progression of the macula and optic nerve long before actual vision loss. Images are analyzed immediately and compared to a normal outcomes database. This technology has become the standard of care for patients with glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and several other eye diseases.
