Ultra-Wide Field Retinal Imaging using our Optomap® Daytona
Our office utilizes cutting edge technology to view the interior of your eyes. We search every year for any diseases or conditions of the eyes whether they can cause harm quickly or very slowly over time. Many conditions of the eye have implications for the health of our body and neurological system. Our Optomap Daytona Retinal Scan offers an amazing view of nearly the entire retina without the aid of dilation drops, which can make the vision blurred and impact clarity for several hours. We use this valuable information to evaluate your eyes for any risk of retinal detachments, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, macular degeneration and many, many more sight-threatening conditions.
In the unfortunate event that you or your family member has been diagnosed with a sight-threatening condition, our doctors are able to utilize this amazing instrument called a Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT. The HD-OCT, in addition to visual examination of the eyes, can detect damage and progression of eye diseases and changes in your eye as small as a fraction of a millimeter in size. That is far more accurate than the human eye can resolve even under high magnification! This fantastic technology helps our doctors in the effort to manage retinal diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal detachments and countless more. Luckily, not every patient will need this technology in the care of their eyes through their lifetime. But the OCT allows our doctors to be even more precise in assessing critical changes in your eyes when determining the need for specialized care.
Automated Refraction with our Marco TRS-5100 systems
Measuring your eyeglasses prescription has never been faster or more accurate than with our Marco TRS-5100 digital refractor. Using our automated phoropters, we can show you subtle changes in near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism using the speed of technology. The speed and clarity with which this instrument works will amaze you. With side-by-side comparison of lens choices for your best clarity and the ability to compare your current glasses with your newest prescription all with the push of a button. It’s hard
Like a snowflake, every eye is unique and fascinating, even comparing the eyes of the same patient. Our Marco OPD-III scan is a great way to showcase those individual variations and use them to your advantage when it comes to helping you see your best! This instrument measures several features of your vision to find the best contact lenses, monitor an eye condition (keratoconus, Pellucid, etc.) or help determine the proper refractive surgery for you (LASIK, PRK, SMILE, etc.). Most importantly, it allows the doctor to have an accurate starting point when determining your eye glasses prescription. The OPD-III also measures the shape of the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye, in two different ways: 1) overall curvature of the front of the eye and 2) a topographical map of the microscopic variations in the shape of your cornea (scars, thinning, bulging, etc). This is a much more modern way of matching our patients with high-technology contact lenses and avoiding common problems that bother many people with sensitive eyes in the Central Valley.
iCare® Tonometer for quick & easy measurement of eye pressure
Many conditions of the eye, including glaucoma can affect the pressure inside of your eyes. This pressure when elevated or fluctuating can cause damage to many parts of the eye’s interior. All eye doctors keep track of your eyes intra-ocular pressure (IOP) at nearly every visit. Our office is proud to offer the use of the iCare tonometer. There is no puff of air to startle you and no sticky yellow drops necessary to measure your IOP with this device. There is a small plastic probe that lightly taps the surface of your tear film for a fraction of a second allowing for quick and painless measurement of IOP. It is amazingly fast and comfortable to achieve the important measurements we need to assess your risk for an eye disease.
