Special Eye Testing
Since VEP testing provides important diagnostic information regarding the functional integrity of the entire visual system, it has been found to be useful for the detection and monitoring of many types of visual abnormalities.2 It is often used to help doctors diagnose and manage neuro-visual disorders such as optic neuritis, amblyopia, and vision problems due to TBI.
Pattern ERG (PERG) has been recognized as an effective test in helping doctors to diagnose and manage disease including, Glaucoma, Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and Diabetic Edema, among others.
Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT)
Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated.
ZEISS / Humphrey Visual Field Testing
Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.
