Images and Scans
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT is an imaging technique to capture micrometer resolution, and two and three dimensional images of the retina and anterior segment. OCT provides a straightforward method of assessing cellular organisation, axonal thickness in glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema, multiple sclerosis and other eye diseases or systemic pathologies which have ocular signs.
Digital Retinal Photography
A scan of the retina to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease. The image gives the Optometrist a more detailed view of the retina than they can achieve by other means. By comparing images from previous visits, the Optometrist will easily be able to detect slight changes over time and be able to detect and help prevent potential macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears, optic strokes and much more.
Optomap Retinal Exam
Whereas the traditional digital retinal camera can image up to 45 degrees, the Optomap can image out to 200 degrees of the retina.
This provides a distinct advantage in detecting and monitoring potentially serious eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, hypertension and cancers that sometimes can manifest in the eye. These are all conditions that can often start in the periphery and progress without obvious symptoms.
Visual Field Analysis
The visual field test is a subjective measure of central and peripheral vision and is used to diagnose, determine the severity of, and monitor glaucoma. It evaluates vision loss due to glaucoma, damage to the visual pathways of the brain, and other optic nerve diseases. When glaucoma is diagnosed the visual field data is used to determine the severity of disease. This staging information is useful in choosing a target intraocular pressure and determining follow-up.
