We have some of the most up to date technology in our office. Like our mission statement says, "to remain at the forefront of our profession by utilizing the latest technology and procedures". We acquire new equipment all the time. Here is some of the equipment that we have to date.
In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Drs. McNamara and Crockett is proud to announce the inclusion of the Optomap Retinal Exam as an integral part of your eye exam.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.
An Optomap Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving your eye doctor a more detailed view than he can achieve by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is one of the best methods for viewing the microscopic structures in the back of the eye. This technology has been a part of modern eye care for approximately ten years. Now, at Eyecare Plus, we have incorporated one of the newest versions, the Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT as part of our technical equipment. The Cirrus HD-OCT allows us to diagnose, treat, and manage such eye diseases as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and retinal detachments.
Corneal topography, also known as photokeratoscopy or videokeratography, is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision.
The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK and evaluation of its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses. The topographer is just one more tool that can help you obtain valuable information in assessing refractive error. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.
The Visucam is a Zeiss non-mydriatic color fundus photography enabling you to photograph through the pupil to the retinal in the back of the eye. Superior patient comfort, more efficient workflow and improved eye care. This high-quality system provides everything you need for detailed diagnoses of typical eye diseases like diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and AMD in a single workplace.
Visual Field Testing has been a staple in eye care for generations. Visual Field machines, such as our Humphrey Field Analyzer-II, test peripheral (or side) vision. Many ocular conditions “steal” peripheral vision without symptoms. The most well-known of these conditions is glaucoma. Other conditions, such as retinal detachments, brain tumors, or strokes cause very obvious peripheral vision loss. All of these conditions can be diagnosed and monitored with Visual Field testers.
The only lens made to the patient's unique optical fingerprint or iPrint™.
iZon High Resolution Lenses are the only spectacle lenses in the market that are fully customized to the patient's unique iPrint™ and are driven by the wavefront measurement of the eye itself. This transformational new vision correction solution was designed by Ophthonix specifically for dispensing practitioners. It incorporates three fully integrated wavefront technologies from refraction through lens manufacturing. The result is a superior lens delivering "High-Definition" vision day and night.
