Non-Surgical Vision Correction (ORTHOKERATOLOGY) For Myopia
Wouldn't it be great if your vision could be corrected while you were sleeping, reducing your nearsightedness, and also possibly slowing or halting its progression?

Facilities and Equipment

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)Our office offers the latest in digital imaging of the optic nerve and retina (the multi-layered sensory tissue that lines the back of the eye that is like the film in a camera) for instant viewing and digital documentation. OCT can assist us in the early detection of eye diseases including glaucoma, pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions, diabetic retinopathy, AIDS related retinopathy, optic nerve disease, macular degeneration, retinal diseases, toxic conditions, etc. The imaging is painless and done with a highly sophisticated laser. Usually no dilation drops are necessary for the imaging.

Digital Retinal Imaging

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingOur office offers the latest in digital retinal imaging for instant viewing and photo documentation of the retina. Retinal photography can assist us in the early detection of eye diseases, pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions, diabetic retinopathy, AIDS related retinopathy, optic nerve disease, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, toxic conditions, etc. The photographs are painless and done with a highly sophisticated computerized camera. Usually no dilation drops are necessary for the photographs. To see this technology in action, please refer to this past tv broadcast:

Digital Biomicroscope Imaging

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingOur office offers the latest in slit lamp (biomicroscope) digital imaging for instant viewing and photo documentation and video documentation of the eye and surrounding structures. These images and videos can be seen by both the doctor and the patient. This computerized technology aids us by establishing a baseline of the eyes as well as abnormal or disease processes of the eyes. The video documentation is especially helpful in contact lens applications. We can compare these images with future images and videos, enabling us to carefully monitor normal or abnormal ocular changes.

Axial Length Measurement

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingOur office offers optical biometry to measure the axial length (AL) of the eye. This information is important in determining eyeball elongation caused by myopia in children and progressive/pathological AL elongation in children and adults.

*FYI: The average eye AL is approximately 23.30 mm. Assuming the central corneal power is the same for each eye at normal ALs, for every 1 mm of AL difference you can anticipate a 3.0 D difference in the refractive error.

Automated Perimetry (Visual Field Testing)

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingThe test can detect a loss of peripheral vision and provide a map of that loss which will be helpful in diagnosing the cause. Abnormal results may indicate a disease process such as glaucoma, or central nervous system problems such as tumors that damage or compress the parts of the brain that deal with vision. Other conditions that affect the visual field of the eye include diabetes, hypertension, diseases of the pituitary gland, and multiple sclerosis. It is not uncommon for automated perimetry to detect such above mentioned problems before a patient is even aware of any such vision loss.

*We perform automated perimetry (screening) on all patients that are able to sit for the test as part of their comprehensive eye examination.


Corneal TopographyRetinal Imaging

Corneal TopographyOur office is equipped with a CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER, a sophisticated computerized instrument that accurately maps the cornea (clear front window of the eye). This enables us to better monitor corneal health, and is invaluable in aiding in the early detection of corneal diseases. Topography is necessary for pre- and post-operative care of refractive surgery patients to closely monitor corneal health. Topography is also used to aid in custom contact lens designs and in determining a proper contact lens fit.

* We perform topography on all contact lens patients at their initial and yearly examinations to monitor corneal health


Retinal Imaging Retinal Imaging

We also offer PACHYMETRY, which is a test to determine corneal thickness. These measurements help to determine corneal health and is required for all patients interested in corneal refractive surgery. Pachymetry has been found to be a valuable diagnostic tool as studies show a relationship between corneal thickness and glaucoma.

Digital Imaging Computer Users
We utilize the PRIO Computer Vision Tester. This instrument is the only clinically-proven, FDA-Approved medical device that allows the accurate diagnosis of the accommodative lag which causes Computer Vision Syndrome. PRIO aids in our ability to generate effective computer vision prescriptions. Desktop and notebook computers are available for testing purposes when necessary.
Frames and Lenses
Air Titanium is our featured frame line. These award-winning (73 international design awards) frames are pure titanium, very lightweight, durable, non-allergenic and come in various colors and design-your-own combinations. More about Lindberg
