We keep up to date with the latest equipment to give you the best examination possible. You won't see
a lot of bells and whistles to try to impress you. Nor will we do any unnecessary tests. We do have:
1. An autorefractor which will give a glasses prescription after you simply sit and watch the target. It also will measure the curvature of your cornea and can give a map of the corneal curvature. This can be useful when fitting contact lenses were sometimes for diagnosing certain diseases of the cornea.
2. A retinal camera which will give stereoscopic photographs of the retina. This can be useful in diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma as well as other diseases of the retina.
3. A Biomicroscope is used to give a magnified view of the structures in the front of the eye as well as
the inside of the eye, using lenses. It can be used to diagnose and monitor any number of eye diseases
such as diabetes, hypertensive retinopathy, or retinal detachment.
4. A perimeter or visual field machine will give a map of your side vision. It is a specially useful in diagnosing
and monitoring glaucoma. It also can be very helpful in diagnosing tumors or aneurysms in the brain, which can
sometimes cause predictable visual field defects.
5. A retinal scan (HRT) will give a computerized map of your optic nerve. This can be very useful in diagnosing
and monitoring glaucoma or other diseases of the optic nerve.
