Part of our reputation of being a leader in California eye care is built upon our access to the latest clinical technology. We can image, test, screen, and diagnose using cutting-edge equipment in a comfortable environment, which allows us to learn the maximum amount of information about the unique qualities of your eyes.
This allows us to provide for your lasting eye health with peak precision, and tailor our diagnoses and other services to you specifically. Here are the tools we use to ensure the most accurate eye tests and diagnosis:
Corneal Topography is a non-invasive procedure that allows us to take a relief image of the curvature of the cornea. This is a crucial scan that gives eye care professionals context on which to provide the following services:
• Screening for LASIK and other
• Intraocular lens (IOL) procedures
• Cataract surgery
• Precise contact lens fitting
A fundus exam is a painless, non-invasive method of imaging the retina. Also called digital retinal imaging, the fundus exam takes an image of the back of your eyes, including the retina, the optic disc, and the eye’s blood vessels and is used in the diagnosis and treatment of:
• Macular degeneration
• Retinal toxicity
Also called an “optical ultrasound”, OCT scans use light waves to produce a detailed, cross-sectional image of a patient’s retina. Because these images go beyond the surface of the retina, OCT technology can allow doctors to get a better picture of overall eye health in a patient.
These images assist in the process of diagnosing and treating glaucoma, macular degeneration, and more eye diseases that involve retinal degradation.
The Optos exam is another imaging modality that takes detailed images of the retina, up to 80 percent of the entire structure in detailed images. Although not yet widely used, the Optos scan is a better way to get the larger picture of eye health, as it provides more clinical information in a single scan than any other technique.
