This machine combines fours types of diagnostic capabilities to create the most efficient exam. First, it will take a measurement of the curvature of your eye, then it will take a reading to give the optometrist a baseline prescription. Afterwards, the machine will automatically switch to measure the thickness of your cornea, and measures your intraocular pressures with a soft air puff.
The OptoMap is a wide-angle fundus photographer. This camera allows us to see further into the periphery of your retina than with a conventional eye exam. The OptoMap is recommended as part as your routine eye exam, as they are important for detecting various eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetes, holes or tears of the retina, or even eye freckles.
Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is the latest technology in the optometry world. The OCT allow the optometry to view the retina in novel ways. the OCT takes a cross sectional view of the retina, allowing us to detect and manage eye diseases that could not be previously diagnosed with conventional exams. The OCT is also very important for the investigation and monitoring of glaucoma.
The Visual Field measure the sensitivity of your peripheral vision. These types of tests are not recommended as part of your routine exam, but rather for investigation into glaucoma, stroke, pituitary disease and detection of various other diseases.
