Services & Technology
The overall health of your eyes is just as important to us as it is to you.
That is why we probably do the most thorough eye exam you have ever had. Our exams will help uncover hidden, symptom-less, potentially sight threatening disorders and diseases that are not found by a simple screening. Therefore your comprehensive exam will include:
- Medical History
- Neurological Screening
- Vision Testing
- Binocular Vision and Color Vision testing
- Microscopic Evaluation for the assessment of internal and external ocular health
- Pupil Dilation for internal ocular health evaluation when necessary
In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, we are proud to announce the inclusion of the Optomap retinal exam as an integral part of your exam. The Optomap produces a 200 degree digital image of your retina that can help the doctors detect many diseases in their earliest stages. The Optomap is quick, painless and has benefits all ages. Best of all, it does NOT require dilating drops which typically causes blurred vision and sensitivity to light for hours. In some cases the view provided by the Optomap is superior to that of pupil dilation. If for any reason, dilation of your eyes is necessary, we offer complimentary drops that can help reverse the dilation.
We’re very excited to have this technology in our office, considering its potential for detecting early signs of eye disease and its overall level of patient comfort and convienence. Your images will be stored electronically. This gives us a permanent record of the condition of your eyes. This is very important in assisting your Doctor to detect and measure any changes to your retina next time you get your eyes examined.

Glaucoma Testing-no more air puff!
The glaucoma test is a very valuable test that is performed as part of your comprehensive eye health exam. This test measures the amount of pressure that is inside your eye. If too much fluid is being produced or not enough is absorbed into the blood stream, the pressure can build up and cause damage. This condition, called Glaucoma, will affect your peripheral vision. Icare Tonometer measures Intraocular Pressure (IOP) with a unique, patented rebound technology, which enables quick and painless measurements with NO drops or air.
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT):
Optical Coherence Tomography OCT, is a non-invasive technology used for imaging the optic nerve and retina – the multi-layered sensory tissue lining the back of the eye. One of the most important benefits of this form of retinal scanning is that being able to scan the various layers of the retina which are not normally visible with traditional techniques. This high-definition scanning technology has revolutionized the way we image and diagnose macula conditions such as differentiating dry macular degeneration from wet macular degeneration. In addition, OCT has the capability of measuring the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in glaucoma and other diseases of the optic nerve.
Digital Anterior Segment Camera
The anterior segment is the front of the eye. Our biomicroscope allows our office to take image digital photos of the front of the eye to photo document and monitor anterior segment diseases.
Maps the curvature of the corneas for more precise contact lens fitting and diagnosis of corneal disease.
Instrument used to determine the thickness of the cornea which is important in glaucoma.
Humphrey Visual Field
The Humphrey Visual Field is a diagnostic device used to test a patient’s complete “field of vision”, which includes the peripheral vision. This test is invaluable in diagnosing, monitoring, and treating patients with glaucoma, where peripheral vision is irreversibly lost without symptoms until later stages. The Humphrey Visual Field is currently the gold standard for managing glaucoma. It is also useful in many neurological conditions and in conditions affecting the optic nerve of the eye, such as intracranial tumors, strokes, or multiple sclerosis.
The Keratograph 5M examination
Your eye doctor is using an advanced technology called the OCULUS Keratograph 5M to examine your eyes. The Keratograph 5M has a high-resolution color camera and is equipped with intelligent software to analyze the collected data and document the findings. It can also compare the results and show the success of the dry eye treatment.
