TOPCON TRC-NW6S Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera (Digital Retinal Photography)
The TRC-NW6S takes a hi-definition photo of your retina. It uses a Nikon digital camera and offers exceptional 10.2 megapixel resolution with 45° and 30° fields to make sure every aspect of your retina is photographed. We use our camera to document and follow eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal vascular diseases, and glaucoma.
IOL Master (A-scan Ultrasonography)
The IOL Master allows fast, accurate measurements of eye length and surface curvature, necessary for cataract surgery. It is consistently accurate to within ±0.02 mm or better. Calibrated against the ultra-high resolution 40-MHz Grieshaber Biometric System, the IOL Master has a fivefold increase in accuracy over traditional A-scan ultrasonography.
NIDEK ARK-530A/ARK-510A Auto-Ref/Keratometer (Auto-Refractor)
The NIDEK ARK-530A/ARK-510A measures your full pupil zone to provide accurate autorefraction measurements. It features NIDEK's newest, most advanced measurement method - The Pupil Zone Imaging Method. This method uses a Super Luminescent Diode (SLD) to project a target on your retina. This target is then captured on ... Read more
Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA) II – i series (Visual Field Perimeter)
The Humphrey Field Analyzer II is the accepted standard of care in glaucoma diagnosis and management. With HFA, you can feel confident you're receiving the best possible care. The test takes only 3 to 6 minutes - a third of the time of previous tests. Glaucoma Progression Analysis software provides advanced, accurate progression analysis for better glaucoma management. It helps quantify the likelihood of progression and identify high-risk patients. Your best defense against glaucoma is early detection.
Coherent Acculite Endoprobe (Argon Laser)
The argon laser is used for argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT). ALT is an office laser procedure that can help lower eye pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma. This is a painless procedure that takes several minutes.
Tomey Topographic Modeling System (TMS) 4 (Corneal Topography)
The Tomey corneal topography projects multiple rings onto the cornea, takes a picture, analyzes the reflected image, and then gives a topographical color map of the cornea's shape. The maps are useful in analyzing corneal astigmatism, detecting contact lens problems, detecting keratoconus, and optimizing corneal transplant results. It can detect corneal shape disorders not visible on routine exam. It is an essential screening tool prior to laser vision correction and also aids in contact lens fitting.
ZEISS Cirrus HD-OCT
The ZEISS Cirrus HD-OCT (Cirrus HD-OCT or Cirrus) enables examination of the posterior and anterior of the eye at an extremely fine spatial scale, without surgical biopsy or even any contact with the eye. The Cirrus HD-OCT builds on and refines the retinal imagining technology first introduced with the ZEISS Stratus OCT. HD-OCT stands for "high-definition optical coherence tomography.
A pachymeter is a medical device used to measure the thickness of the eye's cornea. It is used to perform corneal pachymetry prior to LASIK surgery, for Keratoconus screening, surgery and is useful in screening for patients suspected of developing glaucoma among other uses.
