We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
What is TearCare®?
TearCare® is an innovative Dry Eye procedure that targets the blocked meibomian glands in your eyelids that produce oils to keep your tears healthy. When these glands become blocked or have reduced function, your tears may evaporate more quickly. Unblocking these glands with The TearCare® System can help restore their function and stabilize the tear film. This may improve the quality of tears and reduce symptoms like dryness, gritty or scratchy sensations, blurry vision, and watery eyes.
At your appointment, we will determine whether your dry eye symptoms are caused by Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) and would benefit from the use of The TearCare® System.
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.
A visual field test detects those areas of your vision which may be affected by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, strokes and brain tumors or medications and injuries to the eye or brain. The test may also be required by the DMV in order to keep or obtain a drivers license. It is used to determine if an area of vision has been affected, to evaluate the severity and to monitor progression of the disease or condition.
The test is painless and generally does not require dilation drops. The length of testing is dependent on the test ordered. Your doctor will discuss the reason for the test and what to expect.
