Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
A contact-free diagnostic imaging device similar to a CAT scan, an optical coherence tomography (OCT) test relies on infrared light as opposed to x-rays for a precise cross-sectional view of your eye’s retinal, iridocorneal, and optic nerve region.
Some common eye diseases and conditions diagnosable with OCT include:
Maculopathy conditions such as macular edema and macular holes
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
Glaucoma and detection of any damage to the retinal nerve tissue caused by glaucoma
Diabetic retinopathy, including central serous chorioretinopathy
Vitreomacular traction syndrome
OCT exams are often given for a number of reasons, such as evaluating the progression of certain degenerative eye diseases, checking for or monitoring any retinal edema(s) (swelling), monitoring possible optic nerve disorders, and checking the efficacy that pertaining ocular medications have on the retinal and nerval regions of the eye. Because of its use of light waves, these OCT scans cannot be administered to those with eye conditions that can hinder light from passing through, such as patients struggling with dense cataract lenses or vitreous hemorrhages.
Humphrey Visual Field Test
Visual field tests are commonly used for the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma. The progression of glaucoma commences by affecting the peripheral vision, and if left untreated, makes its way towards the central vision. The Humphrey visual field test is the leading and most commonly used diagnostic exam for measuring perimetry (visual fields). It involves blinking and fixation lighting tests to monitor your vision. This helps us determine your glaucoma is under control.
The Lenstar helps us accurately measure every portion of the eye all the way from the cornea to the retina. It works in combination with laser technology for improved keratometry, astigmatism and axis measurement, as well as features various IOLs for the best results.
The LenSx® – Laser Cataract Surgery
If you decide to use the LenSx® laser for your cataract surgery, you can be confident that our techniques will personalize your goals to the exact specifications you want utilizing the blade-less laser.
