Autorefractor sends a beam of light to the retina and reflects it back in order to obtain a measurement of a patients glasses prescription.
Computerized lensmeter allows us to accurately measure the prescription on a patients current pair of glasses.
iCare Tonometer measures the intraocular pressure (eye pressure) with a 1mm round plastic tip that gently touches the cornea (front of the eye). Most patients prefer it over non-contact tonometry ie “the puff test.”
Goldman Applanation Tonometry (GAT)
Goldman Applanation Tonometry (GAT) measures the intraocular pressure (eye pressure) by gently touching the cornea with a 4mm prism-like instrument. Although GAT is the golden standard of measurement, it requires anaesthetic and blue light for accurate measurements.
Fundus Camera takes high definition color photos of the retina allowing us to monitor and document various eye diseases from year to year. Patients appreciate begin able to see what the back of their eyes look like and the education along with it.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer
Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer checks for vision loss within an individuals field of view. It’s essential in monitoring peripheral vision loss with glaucoma, as well as screening for other conditions such as strokes, intracranial lesions (tumors), optic nerve disorders, and many other retinal diseases.
Marco EPIC is a series of machines that measure the prescription on the patients eye, measure the prescription in their glasses, and maps the surface of one’s cornea. It then gives an accurate prescription in which an ophthalmic tech can confirm with an eye chart. It’s the latest technology in obtaining clear vision.
Corneal Topographer maps the surface of the cornea to test for high astigmatism or other disease such as keratoconus. It’s measurements are used for difficult contact lens fits and for calculating the new intraocular lens implant during cataract surgery.
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is used to analyze the various layers of the retina. It is the standard of care as a tool in diagnosing and managing glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, and many other conditions.
Trial Frame is an invaluable instrument that allows the doctor to make the patient an updated pair of glasses on the spot. Many patients wonder if there is enough change in the prescription to warrant updating their glasses. This allows the patient to compare their old prescription to a current one and decide for themselves.
