Discover the advanced technologies used in our optometry office. We use state-of-the-art equipment to provide comprehensive and accurate eye exams. Discover how our commitment to the latest technology sets us apart and provides the best possible eye care experience for our patients.
Eidon Retina Imaging
Our Eidon Retina Imaging System takes a crystal clear picture of the central 120 degrees of your retina. We offer this photo free of charge with every comprehensive exam and, in many cases, replaces the need for dilation. This single photo can detect over 270 different eye conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
OCT – Optical Coherence Tomograpy
Our Zeiss Cirrus OCT machine is an invaluable tool for detecting eye diseases in their earliest stages. This non-invasive test uses light rays to take cross-sections of your retina. This technology is used to monitor treatment of eye disorders such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachments, retinal membranes and more.
VF – Virtual Field
Our Virtual Visual Field machine is a patient-friendly way to accurately assess your peripheral vision. Assessing peripheral vision is key to detecting disorders that can cause vision loss including glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and neuro-degenerative disorders. This easy-to-use headset version is a superior upgrade to the standard bowl-type Visual Field.
Firefly Anterior Segment Imaging
Our Firefly Slit Lamp camera allows us to take pictures and videos of the front surface and middle chamber of the eye. This is very useful in patient education, as you get to see exactly what is occurring with the front of your eye. This new technology assists the doctors in treating and monitor cataracts, eye infections and injuries, corneal diseases and more.
Did you know 85% of dry eye patients have Meibomian Gland Dysfunction? Meibography imaging visualizes the morphology of the meibomian glands, located in the eyelids, through a series of high-definition digital images. The images allow the eye doctor to observe the architecture of the glands by revealing the gland size, structure, and any structural abnormalities. This helps guide treatment to maximize our dry eye therapy.
Punctal Plugs for Dry Eyes
Punctal plugs are tiny devices that are placed in the eye’s tear ducts, called puncta, to relieve dry eye symptoms. Puncta are the tiny openings in your eyelids that drain tears from your eyes. The plug is smaller than a grain of rice, and it blocks tears from draining from the eye. This helps keep the eye’s surface moist and comfortable, relieving dry, burning and red eyes. We typically use 6-month dissolvable plugs, but other options are available.
Amniotic membranes are newly engineered treatment options for difficult cases of dry eye disease and other hard-to-heal corneal conditions. These membranes are ethically obtained stem cell tissues that provide the front surface of the eye with healing and regenerative properties. They have proven to be useful treatment methods for difficult or severe cases of dry eye syndrome, and can be used in other corneal conditions in which significant damage to the front surface of the eye has occurred. Amniotic membranes are placed directly on the front of the eye, and provide not only a nourishing and protective barrier to help facilitate corneal health, but can also provide rejuvenating stem cell contributions to the cornea and prevent future corneal damage due to dryness.
Retina Disease and Macular Degeneration Genetic Testing
In select cases, we are able to offer genetic testing to patient who show signs of or have a family history of retinal conditions. Although still in its infancy, this is yet another way our doctors strive to be on the cutting edge of the latest technology.
