Special Eye Testing
Special Testing Means Extra Special Eye Care
i.Profiler® plus not only provides you a better prescription, it gives you access to an optimized individual lens solution with i.Scription technology for improved color and contrast vision as well as improved night vision. i.Scription involves an innovative patented algorithm which combines the subjective refraction values with the i.Profiler plus and ocular wavefront aberrometry data to calculate an individualized prescription to 1/100th of a diopter – especially for lower light situations.
Lens fitting plays a key role in maximizing visual comfort, as fitting errors can cause up to a 40% loss in lens performance. i.Terminal 2 captures and calculates your patient’s individual parameters with the click of a button and a precision of 0.1 mm which can result in a decreased complaint rate, reduced non-adapts and more relaxed vision for your patients.
Retinal Digital Imaging – Fundus Photography
A high-definition digital image of the retinal area helps your eye doctor diagnose and manage eye diseases in the delicate retinal area. Damage to these delicate structures of the retinal area is often the first sign of systemic diseases such as MS, diabetes and more. The retina is the “window to the body” and routine retinal imaging can help your eye doctor monitor the changes in your eye health from year to year.
ZEISS / Humphrey Visual Field Testing
Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.
Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT)
Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated.
Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea. The three-dimensional map is a valuable aid to the examining optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation (plano or toric IOLs); in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK, and evaluating its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses.
