Diagnostic Equipment

Optovue iWellness - A scan similar to an ultrasound that lets us see potential diseases earlier than with normal diagnostic techniques.

Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer - A visual field test is performed to detect diminished or missing areas of vision in the central and peripheral (side) vision.

iCare Tonometer - This unique technology enables safe, painless and hygienic eye pressure measurement without having to blow air in to your eye or use drops.

Blephex - this treatment can clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes helping eliminate many of the irritants contributing to dry, itchy eyes.

OCT - Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. 

TelScreen Anterior Segment Camera - provides in-depth views of the front of the eye, such as the cornea, eyelids and even the lens inside of the eye.

Optos - The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time, without the use of dilation drops.

Auto-refractor - A machine that determines an approximate prescription based on how your eye processes light.  The scan only takes a few seconds per eye.

Corneal Ultra-sound/Pachymetry - Using OCT technology, the doctor can quickly and painlessly gather information to help diagnose/view corneal diseases such as keratoconous and Fuchs and corneal thickness measurements for diagnostic purposes.

Non-contact Tonometer - better known as the 'air puff machine'.  A quick and painless screening test that measures pressure inside of the eye by how forcefully the puff of air bounces off of the front of the eye.

Tear Osmolarity - The TearLab Osmolarity System is used to measure the quality of patient tears to aid the doctor in the diagnosis of dry eye.

RPS Adeno-virus Test - This diagnostic, in-office test is easy to administer, allowing for the rapid detection of the virus responsible for acute conjunctivitis, commonly known as 'pink eye.'

Marco Phoropter - An automatic version of the "which is better, 1 or 2" piece of equipment used to determine glasses prescriptions.  Precise, quick and with more options, the doctor can also instantly show you your old prescription compared to the new.
