Visual Field Analyzer
Visual field analyzers are great tools that have become the standard of care for diagnosis and management of eye diseases that result in visual field loss. A visual field analyzer is essential in the diagnosis of glaucoma, and is used extensively to monitor other diseases of the optic nerve, retina and visual pathways. Visual field analyzers can even be used to detect life-threatening conditions such as brain tumors!
Optical Coherence Tomography
An OCT is a tool that can be used to show the individual nerve fiber layers composing the eye. It gives your eye doctor the ability to do a non-invasive cross-sectional analysis of your eye. OCTs can be used to measure glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinopathy and macular holes. Your eye doctor can use the high-definition scans to better explain your vision and any problems you may be experiencing.
A fundus camera is a special camera system that can be used to photograph the microscopic inside of your eye. Taking yearly photographs of your eyes, particularly in diseased eyes, can help precisely pinpoint progression or changes that take place from exam to exam. These photographs are great tools in treating diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration.
Optomap Retinal Imaging
The Optomap is a retinal image-capturing tool that can be used to obtain an ultra-widefield view of your retina.
A pachymeter is a device that is used to measure the thickness of the cornea in micrometers. Pachymetry is a vital measurement for patients who undergo eye surgeries such as LASIK. It is also extremely helpful for patients suffering from keratoconus.
