A quick tour of the technology we use to examine your eyes
Patients of View Eye Care appreciate having a comprehensive and thorough eye examination using the latest technology in retinal, macular & optic nerve imaging, scanning and assessment. Some testing is routinely performed each year, while other more in-depth diagnostic testing is done on those with suspicious findings.
Optomap Digital Retinal Imaging (OptosTM)
The Optomap retinal exam offers an ultra-wide field view of the retina (the inside lining of the eye). This scan is helpful both in detection of anomalies and pathologies and for accurately documenting and monitoring healthy eyes for changes throughout one’s life. The process is quick and painless and can often be done without the use of dilating drops.
Retinal Health Analysis (RHA)
Retinal Health Analysis (RHA) integrates multi-spectral imaging with advanced software for early detection of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. RHA is designed to capture indicator data points and images from the deepest retinal layers.
The Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT) is a proven tool for the early detection and managing glaucoma, a symptomless, sight-threatening disease. HRT is extremely valuable in monitoring those with known risk factors for glaucoma especially when used in combination with the Heidelberg Edge Perimeter (HEP). The two instruments share their collected data and are able to compare optic nerve structure (HRT) with optic nerve function (HEP).
Heidelberg Edge Perimeter (HEP)
The HEP allows for different types of visual field analysis. Visual fields are helpful in detecting many ocular conditions and diseases as well as brain tumors, stokes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technology used to obtain very high resolution cross-sectional images of the retina at the back of the eye. Unlike ultra sound, OCT uses light rather than sound to generate and image. OCT measures the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in glaucoma and other diseases of the optic nerve. It is the most accurate way to detect, diagnose, monitor and manage macular degeneration and other retinal conditions.
