At our office, we offer non-invasive high-resolution Retinal Imaging, OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) and visual field testing.
We perform retinal imaging on all of our patients with no additional fee. The test itself has a low-intensity flash of light that takes a second to complete. Retinal imaging is important for documenting the appearance of the back of the eye to monitor for potential health risks or ocular changes over time.
With this test, we can pick up certain health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders, as well as find ocular diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachments, and macular degeneration.
An OCT is similar to an ultrasound of the back of your eye that takes a scan of the layers of retina in the back of your eye. This test is a non-invasive, painless, and fast way to detect and monitor certain eye diseases that are not visible to the naked eye. At our clinic, we perform an OCT on adults as part of our comprehensive examination at no extra charge.
During your eye examination, your optometrist may recommend performing a visual field test. A visual field test is done to assess your horizontal and vertical range of vision, as well as your visual sensitivity. Numerous health issues such as glaucoma, stroke, optic neuropathy, and brain tumors can cause peripheral vision loss and blind spots and can be first detected through a visual field examination.
