Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Heidelberg Spectralis Spectral Domain OCT

The most demanding retinal cases deserve the best in comprehensive diagnostic assessment. This retinal scan can determine the thickness of both the optic nerve fibers and the macula and allow evaluation of unseen layers deep in the retina. This is especially critical with retinal bleeding such as in wet macular degeneration, macular edema in diabetes and optic nerve thinning in glaucoma.

Rescan at Follow‐up

TruTrack™ precisely tracks change over time by automatically looking for and scanning the same area on the retina. The Spectralis can determine retinal changes as small as 3 microns. The most sensitive instrument of it’s kind.

When we coordinate care with a retinal specialist, these scans can be forwarded, preventing repeat trips out of the area.

We offer the most advanced equipment to detect and monitor Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetes.

Additional Testing

Retinal Camera

Cannon Digital Camera

The retinal camera takes a posterior photo that enables the retina, macula, optic disk and blood vessels to be viewed. This is an important part in any eye health exam, especially for patients who have risk factors for or have been diagnosed with certain eye conditions.

The slightest of changes can be monitored through the retinal camera.

The camera has the ability to take an anterior photo. If there are any concerns, we are able to document and monitor them over time.

Visual Fields

Visual Fields enable precise documentation of any peripheral visual deficiencies. These are common in glaucoma, stroke and TBI. A computer program compares your results with “normals” in your age group. Repeat testing can be analyzed for change over time to determine if your condition is stable or progressing.

Diagnosis Monitored:

  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma or High Eye Pressure
  • Macular Degeneration, Edema, and Holes
  • Stroke
  • Brain Injury
  • Vascular Anomalies
  • Old or New Retinal Detachments
  • Scars or Pigment Changes
  • Retinopathy
  • and many other eye conditions
