Photography

Fundus photography is performed to document eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases.

Visual Field

A visual field is performed to evaluate loss of peripheral vision from glaucoma, strokes, droopy eyelids and from other visual pathway pathology.

Ocular Coherence Tomography

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive scanning laser that provides high-resolution images of the retina, demonstrating its thickness. OCT can provide additional information regarding the presence and severity of macular edema (fluid) in diseases such as macular degeneration or diabetes and/or to evaluate the health of the nerve fiber layer in diseases such as glaucoma.

These tests help the doctor determine:
◾why vision is blurred;
◾whether laser or other treatments should be started;
◾where to apply laser treatment.

Fluorescein Angiography

Fluorescein angiography is a diagnostic procedure that uses a special camera to take a series of photographs of the retina after a small amount of yellow dye (fluorescein) is injected into a vein in your arm. The photographs of fluorescein dye traveling throughout the retinal vessels show:

◾which blood vessels are leaking fluid;
◾how much fluid is leaking;
◾how many blood vessels are closed;
◾whether neovascularization is beginning.

These tests help the doctor determine:
◾why vision is blurred;
◾whether laser or other treatments should be started;
◾where to apply laser treatment.
