State of the Art Testing

As part of your annual eye exam, your doctor may perform some or all of these comprehensive tests, depending upon your individual needs.

Slit Lamp Test

Allows your doctor a highly magnified view of your eye to thoroughly evaluate the front structures of your eye (lids, cornea, iris, etc.), followed by an examination of the inside of your eye (retina, optic nerve, macula and more). This test aids the doctor in the diagnosis of cataracts, dry eyes, corneal irritation, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

Visual Fields Test

Checks for the presence of blind spots in your peripheral, or “side”, vision. These types of blind spots can originate from eye diseases such as glaucoma. Analysis of blind spots also may help identify specific areas of brain damage caused by a stroke or tumor.

Color Vision Test

Evaluates color deficiencies in the eyes (red/green or blue/yellow) by asking you to pick out numbers from colored mosaic-like illustrations. In addition to detecting hereditary color vision deficiencies, the results may also alert your doctor to possible eye-health problems that could affect your color vision.

Optomap Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging

Creates a digital image that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Helps detect early signs of retinal disease including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Oculus Keratograph 5M

The new Keratograph® 5M technology is a revolution in precision corneal topography and dry eye analysis. The high-resolution color camera and the integrated magnification changer offer a new perspective to the tear film assessment procedure.

Specular Microscope

A camera that takes high-magnification images of the cellular layer of the inner surface of the cornea. It is used, to help evaluate the healing of the corneal epithelium after corneal injury, specific diseases or corneal surgery such as a keratectomy.

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Takes cross-sectional pictures of the retina via a scanning laser. This technology is used to help diagnose and follow treatment in certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Digital Retinal Fundus Photography

Photographs the retina and optic nerve (located in the back of the eye) to document the health of your eye. These images are used for the diagnosis of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, high blood pressure-related disease and other retinal diseases.
