Optos’ widefield retinal imaging technology has the potential to offer your eyecare physician the most powerful tools for disease diagnosis and management. Theoptomap images provide enhanced clinical information which facilitates the early detection, management and treatment of disorders and diseases evidenced in the retina such as retinal detachments and tears, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. Retinal imaging can also indicate evidence of
non-eye or systemic diseases such as hypertension and certain cancers.
Nerve Fiber Analyzer
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive technology used for imaging the retina, the multi-layered sensory tissue lining the back of the eye. OCT, the first instrument to allow doctors to see cross-sectional images of the retina, is revolutionizing the early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as macular holes, pre-retinal membranes, macular swelling and even optic nerve damage. OCT testing has become a standard of care for the assessment and treatment of most retinal conditions. OCT uses rays of light to measure retinal thickness and can be performed in a few minutes. No radiation or x-rays are used in this test.
Corneal Topography is non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea. Since the corena is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topology is of critical importance in determing your quality of vision. The three-dimensional map is a valuable aid to the examination process and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK and evaluation of its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.
The digital retinal imaging camera takes an image of the retina (the back of the eye). These pictures are necessary to document the health of the optic nerve, vitreous, macula, retina and its blood vessels. The photographs are used for comparison, documentation, and sometimes to diagnose certain eye conditions. This is helpful in obtaining a baseline for future care and monitoring active diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Baker Vision Clinic can now provide Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) testing with the Foresee PHP™: a simple, quick, clinically proven and non-invasive way to detect changes in the central area of your vision. The PHP is designed to reveal wet AMD at its onset and early stages, before the damage causes permanent vision loss. Fifteen to twenty percent of people with intermediate-stage dry AMD progress to the wet form of the disease. At this state, tiny blood vessels beneath the retina grow out of control, which can cause blood and fluid to leak under the retina. The resulting damage can be devastating, leading to rapid, severe and permanent central vision loss. Regualar testing with the Foresee PHP™, after initial detection, can let you and your doctor know if your AMD is progressing to the severe, wet form of the disease before you experience the first visual symptoms. Early detection can help save your vision.
It has recently been determined that the thickness of an individual's cornea can influence the intraocular pressure reading and lead to under or over-estimates in those readings. The Pachymeter measures corneal thickness and is vital tool in the diagnosis of Glaucoma. Corneal thickness measurement is also very important for patients who are considering LASIK surgery and it is used to to monitor the progression of certain corneal conditions, such as Keratoconus. The test is simple, painless and takes a few seconds.
QuantifEYE® Macular Pigment Density
One of the key components in assessing your risk for Macular Degeneration is to determine your Macular Pigment Denisty (MPD) level. MPD is a measurement or indication of the amount of Zeaxanthin and Lutein (pigment) in your macula. Both of these nutrients provide excellent photo-protective and antioxidant capabilities. Low macular pigment is associated with a higher risk of AMD. Until recently, risk assessment for AMD was based only on the patient's family history and examination of the retina. By testing with the QuantifEYE®, we can now measure the relative health of your macula. Your doctor can better determine your risk for AMD simply by determining your risk factors and getting your MPD measurement. It is a simple, quick, non-invasive test and does not require dilation. Depending on the outcome of your measurement, your eye doctor may recommend supplementation to restore depleted levels of Zeaxanthin and Lutein in your macula. With supplemental intervention, it is possible to increase the pigment levels in your macula, thus lowering your risk for vision loss.
The visual fields instrument provides information regarding how well the optic nerve and retina are functioning. It is useful in diagnosing and following certain conditions such as glaucoma.
Visioffice® provides a dynamic 3D measurement that allows for an individual diagnosis of your eyes. Based on the position of your eye rotation center, the true reference for lens calculation and fitting, this important data is known as the "eyecode." These measurements are taken in store by your optician with the cutting-edge patented Visioffice® and is done quickly with extreme precision. Your head posture and eye movements are video-recorded and analyzed in perfect respect of your natural behavior. There is absolutely no physical contact with the eye during the measurement. Once the measurement is taken, your optican provides Essilor's laboratory with your personal eye, frame and behavioral data which is used then in the lens calculation to ensure the highest lens-to-eye fit. This breakthrough lens personalization is available for both Varilux® progressive and single vision lenses.
