We provide eye exams for all ages. Our routine eye exam is comprehensive, determining not only a person's prescription but also evaluating the internal and external eye health. Optometrists have the ability to diagnosis and treat many eye diseases. We have specialized equipment in our office to help with the diagnosis of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and more.
In addition to the routine eye exam, our doctors can detect, diagnose, and monitor eye diseases with the aid of some of the newest technology available in eye care.
With the Optomap digital fundus imaging system, we can take a picture of the entire retina without the need for dilation in some cases. Eye diseases that may not have otherwise been seen can be easily identified with this system. It can also help with early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Some patients may still require dilation depending on their ocular and systemic health.
The Octopus 900 Perimeter tests a patient's visual field effortlessly and quickly. Field tests are necessary for not just determining peripheral vision, but also for diagnosing and monitoring the progress of visual conditions such as glaucoma. The information this equipment gathers can indicate problems in retinal function, the visual pathway from the eye to brain, and the visual cortex in the brain itself.
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a scanning laser that painlessly takes an image of the retina, displaying it as a cross-section of layers. It's like a biopsy for the retina. The data we interpret from this image is invaluable and can tell us if a patient has a retinal hole or detachment, retinal swelling, and even glaucoma.
