A complete exam begins with questions regarding your medical history and reason for your visit. Your vision and eye pressure are checked. Your eyes are then dilated in order to have a better view of the retina (the back layer of the eye). Photos are taken to monitor the progression of any eye conditions you may have.
We offer state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services on site to monitor the health of your eyes.
Digital Fundus Photography
A color photo of the retina that shows you what we see when we look at your eyes.
Optical Coherence Tomography
This is a cross sectional image of the back of your eye. It allows us to see all the layers of the retina and helps us determine if your eyes require any treatment.
This is also used to monitor changes in the optic nerve in cases of glaucoma or suspected glaucoma.
Fluorescein and ICG Angiography
This test requires an injection of a dye into a vein in your arm. This dye travels through your veins and eventually flows through the blood vessels in your eyes. It allows us to look for leaking of any blood vessels and determine the type and extent of your treatment.
This photo is taken like an ultrasound during pregnancy. We put gel on a probe and use this to obtain photos of the back of your eye. It is useful if we cannot see into the back of the eye with our traditional equipment.
Visual Field Testing
This test is performed to monitor peripheral vision in cases of glaucoma or suspected glaucoma. It is also used to check central vision in patients using the medication Hydroxychloroquine.
Treatment of Retinal Disease
When we do an injection, the eye is numbed and cleaned to prevent infection. The injection is placed into the white part of the eye (sclera) so you will not see the procedure being done. The medication sits in the back of the eye (vitreous cavity). There are several medications that are used for various eye conditions.
This procedure is done for a variety of eye conditions. Usually you will be sitting as if you are having an eye exam. The eye is numbed with drops and a lens is put on the surface of the eye to allow a view to the back of the eye. Occasionally, this procedure is done while lying on your back in the exam chair and does not require a lens to be placed on the eye. The laser is delivered through a machine controlled by the doctor.
