Zeiss Retinal Imaging is provided by a camera that takes pictures of the inside of a patient's eye(or of the retina). These pictures are then reviewed with patients to discuss any current or potential conditions that may be present. The images are then saved and can be easily referenced in the future, if any changes occur. The pictures are especially helpful to follow patients with diseases such as diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, and glaucoma, however, all patients are encouraged to have periodic evaluations with the Optomap.
GDx Nerve Fiber Analyzer
The GDx is a state-of-the-art instrument that has the ability to measure the thickness of the retinal tissue within the eye. The increase in pressure within the eye associated with glaucoma, damages the retinal nerve fiber layers by compressing them. The analysis of these layers has become vital in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Thanks to this new instrument, we have another piece of information to help diagnose and treat this difficult disease.
Corneal refractive therapy provides a reshaping of the cornea to correct near-sightedness. The patient wears specially designed contact lenses while asleep, and doesn't require corrective lenses during the day. Often patients are able to maintain good vision by sleeping in the lenses as little as every 2-3 days per week. Call us today to schedule an appointment to see if you would be a good candidate.
