Our Optometric Technology

 

If you’ve ever had trouble seeing how you look in new frames (before your prescription is in them!) you will truly appreciate this feature of the Visioffice:  it can display digital photographs of your face wearing different frames to help you select the frame you like the best. Visioffice - Choose your best frame.

 

Of course, you will still receive personalized attention from our optical staff.   We will discuss with you how you plan to wear each pair of glasses you select in our office and make sure we modify any measurements as needed to design the best lens to accommodate your individual needs. When we understand your visual tasks we can better assist you in obtaining clear comfortable vision for all of your visual requirements  And, with the addition of the Visioffice System technology, the lenses we order can be made more accurately and precisely for each patient.

  

Vision is clearer and more comfortable through lenses that are designed specifically for you.

 


Visual Fields

 

Visual Fields

Visual Fields testing provides important information about your vision health.  Subtle losses of peripheral vision can indicate the development of optic nerve damage such as glaucoma or a neurological problem.   In our office, we use the Zeiss Humphrey FDT technology to perform a visual field screening as part of each comprehensive eye exam.  If the screening test, or a patient’s medical history or symptoms indicate the need for more information, our doctors may order the more detailed threshold or full field visual fields analysis using the Zeiss Humphreys HFA II.

 


 
Optomap Retinal Imaging System
 
Optomap Retinal Imaging SystemWe are pleased to offer the Daytona Optomap Ultra-wide Retinal Imaging System as an important part of our eye health assessment, providing us with a panoramic view of the back of the eye. This technology allows us to detect eye diseases earlier, follow changes more readily, diagnose conditions more easily, review the images immediately with patients, email them directly to specialists when making referrals and keep a permanent copy to allow us to follow the progression of eye disease. The Optomap exam is fast, easy, comfortable and safe.   We can take this image without using drops to dilate your eyes:  a feature our patients really enjoy!  We recommend the optomap imaging to all of our patients at a reasonable fee.  If you decline, we will examine the retina during your comprehensive eye exam by using the dilating drops and looking directly into your eye through your pupil.  CLICK HERE to watch video.

 

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)

 

OCTOur office is pleased to incorporate the powerful Zeiss HD Cirrus OCT into our patient care.  This amazing instrument allows our doctors to view the retina in unprecedented detail. Until now, we were only able to look at the surface of the retina. The OCT allows us to view the retinal structure right down to the cellular level.  This allows us to detect and diagnose certain diseases earlier; sometimes before any visual function has been compromised.

  

The OCT performs a myriad of tests, but is primarily used in the analysis of diseases like macular degeneration, diabetic damage to the retina, drug toxicity, glaucoma and retinal disease.

 

Your comprehensive eye exam at our office includes a screening OCT.  If this screening indicates that more information is advisable, the doctor will order the full OCT:  of the retina, macula and/or optic nerve.

 

The instrument also stores your data so that repeat measurements can be compared by the computer to previous scans and the scans can be shared with another doctor should we refer you for more specialized evaluation or treatment.  CLICK HERE to watch our video.


 

Corneal Topography

 

Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of your cornea.

 

The greatest advantage of corneal topography is its ability to detect irregular conditions of your cornea which are not visible to most conventional testing. And because the computer can save your exam information, our doctors can monitor any changes to your cornea and/or your corneal stability over time.

 

The cornea (the front surface of the eye) is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye's focusing power.  If the cornea is too flat, too steep, or irregular, less than perfect vision typically results.

 

Our doctors analyze the topography results to treat corneal situations such as keratoconus, corneal dystrophies and irregularities, and refractive surgery consultations.  Our doctors also use corneal topography as part of the Orthokeratology evaluation, lens design and therapy.  For more information about Orthokeratology CLICK HERE.
