Visual Fields


A Visual Fields test subjects a Patient to no physical discomfort, but sit comfortably! This test may take some time to complete.

A Patient stares at a central target in a concave dome. A computer program projects a point of light at a location on the dome’s surface. If the Patient can see the point of light, they press a button on a handheld control.

The magic: Each point of light the computer projects on the dome’s surface corresponds to somewhere within a Patient’s ideal field of view. How wide — or narrow — the Patient’s field of view really is, is what the computer and visual fields test helps to determine.

Slit Lamp

The Slit lamp is an instrument consisting of a high-intensity light source that can be focused to shine as a slit. It is used in conjunction with a microscope. The lamp facilitates an examination which looks at anterior segment of the human eye, which includes the eyelid, sclera, conjunctiva, iris, natural crystalline lens, and cornea.

The binocular slit-lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in striking detail, enabling exact anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions, such as cataracts, corneal injuries, keratoconus, macular degeneration, presbyopia and retinal detachment.


Corneal Topography

mmapper-01Magellan MapperCorneal topography, also known as photokeratoscopy or videokeratography, is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.
mmapper-02Magellan MapperMultiple light concentric rings are projected on to the cornea. The reflected image is captured on a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. Computer software analyzes the data and displays the results in various formats.
mmapper-03Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye’s refractive power, its topology is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision. The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining Ophthalmologist or Optometrist.

Retinal Imaging

Retinal Imaging: the CR-DGi uses a combination of optics designed specifically for retinal imaging and Canon’s renowned SLR digital camera technology. As a result, we are able to capture extremely refined images of the retina for detecting or monitoring diabetes, glaucoma, and other serious conditions.

The CR-DGi captures images that can be viewed immediately, making procedures more efficient. Because the images are digital, they can be used with many different applications, such as telemedicine and electronic filing.


Optical Coherance Tomography

oct
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the cornea and anterior segment is an optical method of cross-sectional scanning based on reflection and scattering of light from the structures within the cornea. Measuring different reflectivity from structures within the cornea by a method of optical interferometry produces the cross-section image of the cornea and other anterior segment structures.

Zeiss AngioPlex

The introduction of ZEISS AngioPlex ushers in a new era in retinal care. Ultra-clear 3D microvascular visualizations with non-invasive technology. No contrast agent required!

Kerato/Refractometer

The KR-800 Auto Kerato/Refractometer incorporates the very latest in design technology and ergonomics. Topcon systems have been renowned for their accuracy due to the proven Rotary Prism Technology.

Tonometry

The i.Profilerplus is a 4-in-1 compact system that combines an ocular wavefront aberrometer, autorefractometer, ATLAS corneal topographer and keratometer. The fully automated measurement procedure enables all measurements of both eyes in approximately 60 seconds. The eye’s refractive power distribution is analyzed and represented across the entire pupil aperture.

Tonometry

Make a more confident glaucoma risk assessment with Corneal Hysteresis – the vital risk factor.

Ocular Response Analyzer® (ORA) is the only tonometer that measures Corneal Hysteresis (CH), a superior predictor of glaucoma progression. Corneal Hysteresis is an indication of the biomechanical properties of the cornea differing from thickness or topography, which are geometrical attributes.

In addition to Corneal Hysteresis, Ocular Response Analyzer provides Corneal Compensated Intraocular Pressure (IOPcc), a better indication of the true pressure, proven to be less influenced by corneal properties than Goldmann or other methods of tonometry.


Lensmeter

The ZEISS VISULENS 500 allows the examiner to precisely determine the power of the entire set of different lens materials and designs without the need to adjust the Abbe number, a benefit that adds speed and reliability to the examination process.
