Laser retinal Scan - OCT.
An OCT scan is similar to an MRI or CAT scan for the eyes. OCT can image in 3D allowing us to see, sometimes for the first time, problems within your eye that could not easily be seen before.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HAVE A SCAN?
The test is very simple, takes just a few seconds and is completely non-contact; there are no sudden puffs of air or light flashes. Any areas that may be unusual can then be measured and later repeat scans can be lined up with the original and any changes can be seen and measured.
WHAT CAN YOU SEE WITH OCT?
The retina can be damaged by many common diseases like glaucoma, diabetes and age related macula degeneration. Damage to the retina can lead to visual impairment or even blindness.
Using OCT we can pick up any problems at a much earlier stage, usually allowing you better treatment options and a better visual outcome.
The value of measuring visual fields is as an aid to the diagnosis and monitoring of conditions such as glaucoma, strokes, effects of medication on visual sensitivity and more.
Validated by more than 25 years of research, design and clinical experience, the Humphrey® Field Analyzer (HFA™) is the accepted standard of care in glaucoma diagnosis and management. With over 65,000 installed units worldwide, the HFA is the premier automated visual field analyzer.
- World standard of care
- All major clinical trials have relied on the Humphrey
- GPA: the only FDA-cleared perimetry progression software; allows for full analysis on one page
- GPA minimizes false positives by taking into account test-retest variability of the general population
- VFI minimizes the effects of cataracts for the purpose of measuring progression
- SITA algorithm for fast and precise visual field threshold measurements
- Gaze tracking: highly precise, real-time measurements for reliability
- SITA-SWAP provides early detection
This is the only machine to use to assess visual fields.
Map the curves of the eye
Corneal 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. Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision and corneal health.
The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining ophthalmologist or optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation (plano or toric IOLs); in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK, and evaluating its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses. A development of keratoscopy, corneal topography extends the measurement range from the four points a few millimeters apart that is offered by keratometry to a grid of thousands of points covering the entire cornea. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.
