FDT visual field:

          This instrument quickly measures visual field looking for gaps or irregularities in peripheral vision. This is will indicate the need to get a more detailed look with a visual field analysis.

 The Equipment We Use And Why!

Auto Refractor:

         This instrument is used to objectively measure the refractive error of light entering the eye and prescription for glasses and contacts.

Intraocular Pressures:

             This instrument puffs air into your eye, the purpose is to measure the pressure with in the eye it's self. This is critical to the health of the eye and in preserving vision. 

Although this sounds intimidating, the puff does not hurt or sting.

California Optomap:

       The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging devices helps you and your eye doctor make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being. The ultra-wide digital retinal imaging captures more than 80% of your retina in one image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-45% of your retina at one time.

Field Vision Analysis:

        The purpose for this instrument is to get a detailed picture of the person's peripheral vision and if there are any holes or decreases in perception in the area around the person's central vision. With this analyses we get a very detailed look at any visual field vision loss.


Optical Coherance Tomography:

         The purpose for the OCT it to give a cross section view of the tissure in the back of the eye, the retina and macula. These tissues are essential in good clear vision.

Pictures:

          The purpose of taking pictures of the back of the eye is to ensure that the macula or structure that processes the color and detail of what is seen is healthy with no irragularities or anomelies. We can see the nerve that takes the images to the brain letting us see the health of that structure. We can tell the condition of the frount structures of the eye  based on the quality of the image we see. This is also the window into the body that helps with general health as the blood vessles & arteries, size, shape and patterns can be observed.
