The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technology that provides a 3-D view of the deeper layers of the retina. It is essential in the early detection and management of many eye diseases including glaucoma, diabetic macular edema, and macular degeneration.
The optomap is a panoramic digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology. It is the only technology that can show a wide 82% view of your retina at one time. This is essential for early detection of changes that may pose a risk to your sight and health.
The Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer provides a map of the visual filed to aid in the diagnosis and management of many eye diseases including glaucoma, long term high risk medication use, and any disease processes or lesion(s) throughout the visual pathway.
Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina.
Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.
