Digital Retinal Imaging & OCT Scans

Cirrus OCT minWe use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina.

This is very important in assisting your Optometrist to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.

The advantages of digital imaging include:

  • Quick, safe, non-invasive and painless
  • Provides detailed images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes
  • Provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue
  • Image resolution is extremely high quality
  • Uses eye-safe near-infra-red light
  • No patient prep required

Digital Retinal Imaging

Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.

A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to an CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.

With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.

An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact our office to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment.

Visual Field Testing

A visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots (scotomas), peripheral vision loss or visual field abnormalities. It is a straightforward and painless test that does not involve eye drops but does involve the patient's ability to understand and follow instructions.

An initial visual field screening can be carried out by the optometrist by asking you to keep your gaze fixed on a central object, covering one eye and having you describe what you see at the periphery of your field of view. For a more comprehensive assessment, special equipment might be used to test your visual field. In one such test, you place your chin on a chin rest and look ahead. Lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating. Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 15-45 minutes. These machines can create a computerized map out your visual field to identify if and where you have any deficiencies.

Additional Technology

Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomographer

The newest addition of technology in our office, the Cirrus OCT takes hundreds of scans of the eye in the less than a second. The scans are able to show microscopic changes in the eye that are difficult or impossible to see during examination, allowing for earlier diagnosis of diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, epiretinal membranes and macular edema. The OCT even has change analysis so the doctors can compare your older scans to newer scans to confirm that treatment is working or determine whether changes need to be made.

VisucamPro minZeiss Visucam Pro NM

Want to know what the doctor sees when he looks inside your eye? Tired of the doctor explaining something that you wish you could have seen? The Zeiss Visucam can help with that. This fundus camera takes photos of the retina inside your eye so you can actually see what the doctor is talking about when he is explaining a disease to you. Photos can even be captured without the need for dilation or eye drops. All photos are stored so doctors can go back and compare to see if any changes have occurred.

Humphrey VF minHumphrey Visual Field Analyzer

The Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer is a very important piece of equipment in our office. It helps tell the doctor how sensitive your eyes are to objects and lights in different areas of your field of view. Some diseases such as glaucoma attack your peripheral vision first at a slow rate so you might not even notice that you are losing vision, but this machine will help to alert the doctor to any problems that are occurring.
