We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
The ZEISS i.Profiler is an instrument used for initial tests conducted before every comprehensive examination. It measures the precise profile of the eye with accuracy comparable to a fingerprint. In a 30 second measurement, the i.Profiler combines an occular wavefront aberrometer, autorefractor, and corneal topographer and keratometer.
The Optos provides a detailed digital image of the fundus in the eye that can be closely examined to document, analyze, diagnose, and monitor ocular pathology. The photograph allows a view of 80% or 200 degrees of the retina in a single picture. Using the Optos also avoids the inconvenience of dilatation in the comprehensive examination
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
The Optos Ultra-Widefield Imaging is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.
This ZEISS instrument takes special measurement of your facial contours and your frame to create a customized lens for you, be it bifocal or progressive lenses. The i.Terminal also allows the patient to view themselves in a variety of different frames when choosing the best frame and fit.
Express Lens Edger
The Santinelli Express Lens Edger LE1000 allows our opticians to cut lenses in the office for single-vision prescriptions. This device precisely edges the newest lenses that are the same quality as any high-end lab. Depending on the prescription and availability of the lenses, the order can be completed in a single day.
Icare® TA01i – tonometer
Icare® TAO1i tonometer for quick and easy IOP measurements without anesthesia or air.
The original Icare® tonometer is based on a proven accurate measuring principle known as rebound technology. A light weight probe is used to make momentary and gentle contact with the cornea. Our rebound technology eliminates corneal disruption and patient discomfort.
The Icare® TAO1i tonometer provides accurate, objective IOP readings for even the most difficult patients. Requiring no drops or special training makes IOP measuring quick and easy for screening programs and humanitarian missions around the world.
Icare® ic100 – The Tonometer
The Icare® ic100 is based on a rebound measuring principle that requires no drops, air or specialized skills for its use. This device uses patented rebound technology to measure intraocular pressure. Its light-weight probe makes momentary contact with the cornea. Icare’s proprietary algorithm coupled with state-of-the-art software allows the device to evaluate deceleration, contact time and other motion parameters of the probe when it touches the cornea. The new premium design and user interface brings IOP measuring to a higher level.
Icare® ic100 Key Features:
- Icare® AMS: Automatic Measuring SequenceSeries and single mode with one button
- Icare® EasyNav:Advanced navigation interface
- Icare® EasyPos:Intelligent positioning assistant for correct alignment
LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System
How The LIPIFLOW System Works
- The procedure centers around the breakthrough Vector Thermal Pulse Technology™ (VTP)
- After an initial anesthetic drop, no drugs are required for the procedure
- The LipiFlow system safely delivers therapeutic energies to the meibomian glands while protecting the delicate structures of the patient’s eye
- As a result, the obstructed meibum is liquefied and pushed up and out of the gland orifices
- Contoured design vaults the cornea and protects the eye
- Heat and pressure are regulated with redundant sensors
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)and Dry Eye Facts
- 63% of cataract patients have an unstable tear film
- 50% of contact lens wearers complain about ocular discomfort
- 86% of dry eye patients are affected by MGD
- 340 million people worldwide suffer from dry eye
