Ocular Diagnostic Equipment
Autorefractors are essential to help our team determine the extent of your refractive error. Using a computerized autorefractor, we can help prescribe the lenses you need to achieve clear vision with glasses or contact lenses.
Autorefractors are used during every comprehensive eye exam we perform.
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.
Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyzer
Visual field testing, done using the Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyzer, helps our team detect any distortions or gaps in your vision caused by eye disease. This incredible technology allows us to test your visual field quickly, accurately, and comfortably.
Optomap Retinal Imaging
Many diseases, like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, can be detected by observing your retina. We use Optomap retinal imaging to capture highly detailed images of your retina to search for these abnormalities.
If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, getting laser eye surgery, or managing cataract symptoms, you will first need to have a corneal topography test. This test allows us to take a detailed look at your eye’s surface to determine if these treatments are right for you.
During an electroretinography session, our doctors will numb your eyes and place an electrode on the eyes’ surface to measure your eyes’ reaction to a blinking light. This test is designed to help detect issues like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration.
