Ocular Diagnostic Equipment
Tonometry is an essential part of the eye exam process as it helps us detect and diagnose glaucoma. Glaucoma is a common eye disease that generally occurs when your intraocular pressure (IOP) builds up to damage your optic nerve, leading to vision loss.
We use a couple of different tonometers, such as the iCare Tonometer, non-contact tonometry (the air puff test), and applanation tonometry. Non-contact tonometry uses a small air puff to measure IOP levels, while applanation tonometry uses a small probe that presses against your eye.
Zeiss Cirrus OCT
An instrument used for managing glaucoma and retinal disease, assessing the retina for cataract surgery, and anterior segment imaging for corneal disease.
Zeiss Humphrey Matrix FDT
Frequency-doubling technology helps our team to detect and measure glaucoma by analyzing your visual field. This test is comfortable and easy to administer. As glaucoma damages your optic nerve, your visual field will be affected, even if you do not see it yourself.
