Visual field analyzers are great tools that have become the standard of care for diagnosis and management of eye diseases that result in visual field loss. A visual field analyzer is essential in the diagnosis of glaucoma, and is used extensively to monitor other diseases of the optic nerve, retina and visual pathways. Visual field analyzers can even be used to detect life-threatening conditions such as brain tumors!
An OCT is a tool that can be used to show the individual nerve fiber layers composing the eye. It gives your eye doctor the ability to do a non-invasive cross-sectional analysis of your eye. OCTs can be used to measure glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinopathy and macular holes. Your eye doctor can use the high-definition scans to better explain your vision and any problems you may be experiencing.
A fundus camera is a special camera system that can be used to photograph the microscopic inside of your eye. Taking yearly photographs of your eyes, particularly in diseased eyes, can help precisely pinpoint progression or changes that take place from exam to exam. These photographs are great tools in treating diseases such as diabetes and macular degeneration.
A B-scan is a tool that produces a 2-dimensional, cross-section of the eye and orbit. It can be very helpful in the assessment and treatment of many ocular and orbital disorders.
A corneal topographer can be used to produce a topographical map of the front surface of the eye. It is vital for properly selecting and fitting contact lenses and for anyone who is considering any type of eye surgery involving the cornea. A corneal topographical map can also help your eye doctor more precisely understand your vision problems and prescribe more accurate treatment.
A-scan ultrasounds are used primarily to determine the length of your eye. A-scans are an essential tool used to measure cataract patients to determine the implant lens that will be used in their eye during surgery. A-scans can also be used to detect and quantify masses in the eye.
