We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
The Canon CR-DGi digital fundus camera provides a real time record of a patient’s retina. This new technology allows Family Eye Clinic to document any changes that occur over time as well as provide documentation to other providers as to the status of retinal disease. Patients with diabetes and high blood pressure are particularly at risk for retinal changes that could seriously impact their ocular and systemic health. There are also conditions that require monitoring over time. Subtle changes that might occur are more easily noted when comparing images taken in sequence.
The Zeiss Matrix Visual Field instrument compares the retinal sensitivity over the central 30 degrees of a patient’s visual field. Such testing can reveal both retinal as well as neurological disorders. New patients are typically screened with this device. This technology uses a new testing strategy that is being shown to be superior than older devices in detecting damage from glaucoma.
The Topcon 3D OCT-1 Maestro System delivers a new standard of clinical utility by combining a high-resolution color non-mydriatic retinal camera with the latest Fourier Domain OCT technology. The rotating touch panel and fully automated (alignment, focus, and capture) instrument make the 3D OCT-1 Maestro the perfect diagnostic solution. Pin-Point Registration properly indicates the location of the OCT image within the fundus image. A 12mm x 9mm scan along with 7 layer automated segmentation (including choroid) provides measurement and topographical maps of the optic nerve and macula in one scan.
