Technology We Use
In many cases, vision loss due to eye disease is irreversible. Once you begin to notice vision problems or vision loss, the damage can’t be undone. A comprehensive eye exam using some or all of these diagnostic tools will help us diagnose eye diseases early so we can better preserve your vision.
The iWellness scan gives us insight into the health of the area below your retina, allowing us to detect early signs of disease. It also helps to provide an eye health baseline. With this baseline, we can better identify changes over time and detect smaller changes as soon as possible.
The Visionix VX120 is a multi-function anterior segment analyzer. It’s a combination of a wavefront aberrometer and a pachymeter, meaning with this device, we can measure the shape and thickness of your cornea. It can also be used as a non-contact tonometer, also known as the “air puff test”. This test measures the eye’s pressure, which can be an indicator of certain types of glaucoma.
Fundus photography uses a specialized low power microscope combined with a camera to photograph your retina. The machine takes a photo of your eye with a flash to provide us with a detailed image of your retina. With this information, we can detect diseases like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
