First Preliminary Room
Auto refractor: We first scan the eye to determine your prescription, the curves on the front of your eye, and determine the optical clarity of all the structures in your eye from front to back.
Air puff: The second test measures the pressure in each of your eyes to determine if you have glaucoma. For patients who are at risk or who have glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, lupus, and other doctor-recommended patients may receive a second and third preliminary test.
Retina camera: This camera takes digital photographs of the back of your eye, the retina, and stores the images. For diabetics and patients with high blood pressure or glaucoma, this is very important.
Second Preliminary Room
Visual field computer: This computer maps all the areas of your retina and checks for defects that are sometimes associated with brain tumors and glaucoma. The data is stored and an overlay comparison from one year to the next will identify any changes.
GDX: This computer uses a laser to map all the areas of the optic nerve in your eye. This is important for patients with glaucoma, brain tumors, or multiple sclerosis. The information is stored to overlay next year's date for comparison.
Corneal topography: This maps the curved surfaces on the front of your eye and is important for the diagnosis and contact fitting of keratoconus patients.
After our trained optician has completed these exams, our doctor will begin a thorough examination and interpretation of the findings for each test.
