Our eye doctor's office is committed to providing the best eye care, using the most advanced eye care technology available, for a more comfortable, efficient and accurate eye exam. Early diagnosis is often the key to effective treatment. Read about some of the equipment we love, such as Clear Chart and others, below.
Monaco is the only UWF imaging device with integrated OCT to help eye care professionals enhance their clinical exam and improve practice economics.
Monaco is an exciting new way to enhance your clinical exam. The only ultra-widefield retinal imaging device with integrated OCT, Monaco produces a 200° single-capture optomap image in less than ½ second and also provides cross-sectional 40° OCT views of retinal structures. Monaco enables a rapid multi-modality capture featuring color, autofluorescence, and OCT scans, for both eyes, in as little as two minutes.
Digital Retinal Imaging
Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve, and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.
Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures how much 'side' vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Essentially lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. Your head is kept still and you have to place your chin on a chin rest. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating.
Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 15-45 minutes. Your optometrist may ask only for a driving license visual field test, which takes 5-10 minutes. If you have just asked for a driving test or the clinic doctor advised you have one, you will be informed of the result by the optometrist, in writing, in a few weeks.
Normally the test is carried out by a computerized machine, called a Humphrey. Occasionally the manual test has to be used, a Goldman. For each test, you have to look at a central point then press a buzzer each time you see the light.
Optos Daytona Optomap
We are proud to introduce the latest cutting-edge technology in retinal imaging, the Optos Daytona Optomap.
This amazing device allows your eye doctor to see retinal, optic nerve and cornea structures not visible through regular exam methods by using light to provide a high-resolution scan meant to pick up early signs of structural change or disease.
This allows your eye doctor to see even the smallest changes in the retina and optic nerve with greater accuracy, and much higher definition, making early and accurate detection of common sight-threatening eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, easier than ever before.
Daytona retinal scan technology is now available at Triangle Family Eye Care.
