Capturing All the Details
Early detection and treatment are essential when it comes to dealing with eye disease, and our technology helps us monitor changes in your vision.
Your eye health and overall health are a priority for us, so we want to be prepared to help you navigate eye or vision issues with the latest eye care technologies.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-sectional images of your retina. Your retina is responsible for receiving light and transmitting images to your brain. OCT allows our team to see the different layers of the retina and get a clearer picture of your eyes’ overall condition and health.
The optomap allows our team to perform ultra-widefield retinal imaging that can capture at least 50% more of the retina in a single capture. The multi-capture function can reach up to 97% detection.
The optomap is an excellent preventative eye care technology tool that we are excited to provide to our patients.
A tonometer helps us measure the pressure inside your eyes, known as intraocular pressure, to check for glaucoma. Tonometry can be used to check for changes in eye pressure before symptoms appear, allowing us to prepare a treatment plan quickly.
A tonometer is commonly used if you are at a high risk of or have been diagnosed with glaucoma.
Dry Eye Technology
Our dry eye services can diagnose and help you find relief from dry eye symptoms. Our technology is a big part of our comprehensive dry eye services. For more information on dry eye, please visit our dry eye therapy page.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is a treatment for dry eye disease that uses pulses of light around the skin of your eyes to reduce inflammation. IPL is a noninvasive treatment that focuses on the area below your eyes. The pulses of light can liquefy and release hardened oils that have clogged glands in the eyelids.
Punctal plugs are tiny silicone, collagen, or acrylic plugs that can be inserted into your tear ducts to reduce tear loss. Through partially or completely closing your tear ducts, punctal plugs can keep tears from leaving the surface of your eyes too quickly. Punctal plugs come in semi-permanent and temporary or dissolving varieties.
BlephEx is an in-office procedure that treats inflammation of the eyelids. This inflammation can be a symptom of dry eye, and BlephEx can provide much-needed relief.
BlephEx works by cleaning the accumulated bacterial biofilm and plaque along the edge of your eyelids and eyelashes to help unclog oil glands.
Comprehensive Eye Care
We are always excited to help our patients achieve their vision goals, and our technology plays a huge role in that. Our eye exams use technology to capture all the details and give us an opportunity to explore as many treatment options as possible for your vision needs.
