Services
Some of the services offered at our facility include:
  • Technology-assisted comprehensive eye examinations and the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, allergic eye conditions, and dry eye

  • Myopia management including orthokeratology (corneal reshaping / CRT, VST), pharmaceutical agents, and specialty soft lenses, all for the purpose or slowing or halting the progression of myopia

  • Axial length measurement for the detection of myopic progression due to eyeball elongation which may be present in progressive/pathological myopia

  • Custom advanced WAVE for hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism, and treatment for irregular corneas including keratoconus and post-refractive surgery utilizing advanced CAD/CAM (computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacture) specialty contact lens system

  • Computer vision testing and computer-specific glasses using the PRIO Computer Vision Tester

  • Co-management of laser vision refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK, etc)

  • Contact lens service including disposable, GP (oxygen- permeable), dry eye-specific, astigmatic (toric), monovision, and bifocal-multifocal lenses

  • Prescription, homeopathic, and nutritional products for dry eyes and ocular health

Non-Surgical Vision Correction (ORTHOKERATOLOGY, CRT) For Myopia
Wouldn't it be great if your vision could be improved while you are 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 digital imaging of the optic nerve and retina (sensory tissue that lines the back of the eye that is like the film of a camera) for instant viewing and digital documentation. OCT can assist us in the early detection of eye diseases including glaucoma, pre-cancerous/ 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 dilation drops are unnecessary for the imaging.To see this technology in action, please refer to this video:

Digital Retinal Imaging

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingDigital retinal photography allows for instant viewing and photo documentation of the retina. Retinal photography can assist us in the early detection of eye diseases, pre-cancerous/cancerous lesions, diabetic related retinopathy, optic nerve disease, macular degeneration, toxic conditions, etc. The digital photographs are painless and often dilation is not necessary.

Digital Biomicroscope Imaging

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingOur office offers the latest in slit lamp digital imaging for instant viewing, 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 approximately 2.5 D difference in the refractive error (age-dependent).




Automated Perimetry (Visual Field Testing)

Digital Biomicroscope ImagingThis test can detect a loss of peripheral vision. 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. Automated perimetry may 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 computerized device that accurately maps the cornea (clear front window of the eye). This enables us to 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


Pachymetry

Retinal Imaging
Retinal ImagingWe 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 refractive surgery. Pachymetry has been found to be a valuable diagnostic tool as studies
show a relationship between corneal thickness and glaucoma.


 

Computer Users

Digital Imaging 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.
