Marco Digital Refraction System
Fine tunes your eyeglass prescription along with other tests. The doctor places an instrument called a phoropter (rotating lenses) in front of your eyes, which allows you to look through a series of lenses to determine which is clearest. The refraction determines your level of hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.
A computer that helps improve accuracy when determining your final eyeglasses or contact lens prescription. It is especially useful for those who may not be responsive to a manual refraction.
Slit Lamp Test
Allows your doctor a highly magnified view of your eye to thoroughly evaluate the front structures (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-eye syndrome, corneal irritation, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Annidis RHA Multi-Spectral Imaging
This revolutionary technology is a major advancement in retinal health management and a potentially significant tool for assisting eye-care professionals in the diagnosis and monitoring of sight-threatening eye diseases such as AMD, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
A computer that measures the pressure inside of the eye to help determine one of the risks for developing glaucoma. If the ocular pressure is too high, an additional diagnostic test may be used.
Centervue Laser-Guided 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.
It is mainly used by optometrists and opticians to help verify the correct prescription in a pair of eyeglasses, to properly orient and mark uncut lenses, and to confirm the correct mounting of lenses in spectacle frames. Lensometers can also help verify the power of contact lenses if a special lens support is used.
Optos Daytona Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging
Creates a ultra-high resolution digital image that captures more than 80% of your retina in one clear panoramic image in less than one second. Helps detect early signs of retinal disease including AMD, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
Digital Visual Acuity Test
A digital eye chart that measures the sharpness of your vision. Evaluates how well your current eyeglasses or contact lenses are working, and if you will need an updated prescription.
Comprehensive Contact Lens Evaluation
Evaluates multiple elements including the shape of your eye, your vision correction needs and how often you will use the lenses. If you’ve never worn contact lenses, your eye-care professional will show you how to use your lenses and how to take care of them.
Optovue Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
This device takes cross-sectional pictures of the retina via a scanning laser. This technology is used to diagnose and follow treatment in certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
Corneal Topographer Test
Creates a digital “map” of the surface curvature of the cornea, similar to making a contour map of land. Using computerized imaging technology, the three-dimensional map produced by the corneal topographer aids in the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of various visual conditions including astigmatism.
An instrument designed to visualize the interior of the eye. The device is worn on the head at arm’s length from the subject’s eye and the observer views an inverted image through a convex lens located between the instrument and the subject’s eye.
Offers a wider view of the eye’s internal structures, including examination of the central and peripheral retina (thinning, holes, tears, diabetes-related side effects) by using eye drops to help enlarge your pupils.
An instrument used to inspect the fundus of the eye, which is the back portion of the interior eyeball. The optometrist looks for changes in the color (or pigment) of the fundus, changes in retinal blood vessels and any abnormalities in the macula lutea, the portion of the retina that receives and analyzes light only from the center of the visual field.
