what optometry practice uses a visual field test

VISUAL FIELD TEST

The visual field test, or a perimetry test, allows us to comprehensively measure all aspects of your vision, including your peripheral vision. The test is simple to administer and usually takes only a few minutes. Patients are asked to look into an instrument called a perimeter and press a button each time they see a flashing light. Once they’ve reviewed the test results, doctors are able to identify areas of potential vision loss. Diminished peripheral vision, for example, is often an early indicator of glaucoma.

CORNEAL
TOPOGRAPHER

Corneal topography allows us to map the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye, by taking a non-invasive 3-D image. Using this state-of-the-art technology, our clinicians are able to diagnose and treat certain eye conditions. Corneal topography also gives us optimal clinical information to help us successfully provide the following services to our patients:

  • Refractive surgery (including LASIK)
  • Intraocular lens (IOL) implantation
  • Cataract surgery
  • Contact lens fittings

what optometry practice uses a non-contact tonometer

NON-CONTACT
TONOMETER

To measure the pressure inside your eyes, we offer noncontact or air puff, tonometry testing. This is important, because too much pressure in your optic nerve can lead to glaucoma. The test provides a simple, noninvasive method to check for intraocular pressure or IOP that is easy to administer in children as well as adults and does not require eye drops. It is most commonly used:

  • To test for glaucoma
  • To gauge the effectiveness of glaucoma treatment

If you wear contact lenses, you’ll be required to remove them before the test. Please be certain to also tell our staff if you’re aware of other family members with glaucoma.

what optometry practice uses a fundus exam

Fundus Exam

To ensure your vision and protect against diseases that may compromise your sight, we may suggest a fundus exam, or digital retinal imaging. This technique provides a digital image of the back of your eyes, including the retina, where light and images are received, the optic disk, which holds the optic nerve in place, and blood vessels in the eye.

This exam is highly effective in the diagnosis and treatment of the following:

  • Diabetes, which can damage blood vessels in the eye.
  • Glaucoma, which can damage the optic nerve.
  • Macular degeneration, which can damage the central portion of your retina.
  • Retinal toxicity, which can damage your retina.

Optical
Coherence
Tomography
(OCT)

Optical coherence tomography, which is sometimes referred to as an “optical ultrasound,” provides detailed retinal measurements that assist in the treatment of glaucoma and other diseases of the retina, including age-related macular degeneration, other macular ailments, and diabetic eye disease.

OCT is a noninvasive imaging test that uses light waves to capture highly detailed 3D cross-sectional images of the retina. It goes beyond the surface of the retina, which allows doctors a closer look of the retina, to take accurate measurements, and to ensure its overall health.

OPTOS

We ensure the health of your eyesight using the enhanced technology offered through the Optos Exam. This patient-friendly exam produces retinal imagery that captures more than 80 percent of your retina, typically without dilation. No other device produces so much valuable clinical information in a single image

TESTIMONIALS

I had an awesome consultation with Ken. He is very professional and nice. His service is amazing! I will definitely be coming back in the future.

Yina H.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were concerned about scarring from previous laser surgeries, so they scheduled a second visit to ensure all is well. On time appointments and a wide frame selection. Give them a try.

Flip L.

I purchased my glasses from here and the doctor is awesome ! His staff is very friendly, and they all have excellent customer service skills! I plan to make this my permanent eye doctor for me and my family.
