Diagnostics & Technology
Automated Refraction/ Keratometry/Corneal Topography assesses your cornea’s optical surface and determines the refractive condition of the eye. This tool is particularly helpful to screen for corneal disorders including kerataconus and irregular astigmatism. We utilize the Topcon KR-8000PA.
Automated Visual Fields is the most important clinical tool for measuring visual function of the peripheral retina. Threshold testing involves precise quantification of visual sensitivity. Visual field testing is essential in glaucoma management and is useful in diagnosing and managing neurological diseases.
Optical Coherence Tomography is an extremely useful technology that produces high resolution three dimensional pictures of the various structures of the eye. It is used to evaluate retinal thickness and structure in diseases including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. We utilize a Zeiss Stratus OCT.
Digital Fundus Photography records high resolution images of the retina for documentation purposes and to permit side by side comparison to prior and future examinations. We have a Topcon TRC-NW8 non-mydriatic camera.
Intraocular Lens Power Calculation is performed prior to every cataract surgery. The instrumentation utilized measures several ocular parameters including corneal curvature and anterior-posterior ocular diameter. We utilize the most advanced instrumentation from Zeiss, the IOL Master 500.
Corneal Ultrasonic Pachymetry measures corneal thickness. This is used to assess the cornea prior to LASIK surgery, and as part of the evaluation of glaucoma and corneal disorders such as Fuchs’ Corneal Dystrophy.
LenSx Laser System is used in cataract surgery for patients opting for laser assisted cataract surgery. The bladeless, computer controlled laser allows the surgeon to perform cataract surgery with precision not attainable with traditional cataract surgery methods.
Star S4 IR Excimer Laser System is used in LASIK and PRK surgeries.
- Delivers benefits of Iris Registration (IR).
- Conserves tissue by optimizing treatment times and minimizing thermal effects on the cornea.
- Minimizes additional time for wavefront-guided custom treatment over conventional treatment.
- Eliminates the need for dilation; laser tracks on the natural pupil.
- Maximizes practice efficiency and workflow through ease of use and ergonomics.
- Adjusts for intra-patient (XYZ) movement with ActiveTrak™ to further improve treatment accuracy
IntraLase FS Laser is used in LASIK surgery to create a hinged tissue flap on the cornea. This laser system produces flaps that have:
- Better biomechanical stability vs. a microkeratome
- Lower induced high-order aberrations vs. a microkeratome
- Better refractive outcomes vs. a microkeratome
