Our Advanced Technology
Here at our office we incorporate computerized technology to assist in the evaluation of spectacle prescriptions, peripheral vision and eye health. Computerized examination instruments are used to supplement rather than replace personalized care. With our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) software we have been able to increase the time spent with the doctor thereby enabling us to perform a more thorough examination.
Optomap® Retinal Exam
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer the Optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The Optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and provides us with a wide view to look at the health of your retina.
Often times eye diseases do not have significant symptoms and can go unnoticed threatening our sight. Optomap® testing allows earlier detection of macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments and eye disease as a result of diabetes or high blood pressure. Earlier detection allows for earlier treatment and preservation of sight.
Optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease
- A view of the retina, giving our doctors a more detailed view that cannot be achieved by other means
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap® image of your eye with our doctors at the time of your exam
- A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes
The Optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The Optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.
Marco TRS-5100 Refracting System
The very latest in diagnostic equipment, this system allows for faster and
more precise measurements of your glasses prescription. An added feature allows quick comparisons between your new glasses and your old glasses. Just another way Aker Eye Vision Source embraces new technology to provide you with the very best care.
OptoVue Retinal Analyzer
Precise visualization of the retina is important to diagnosing and treating eye disease. The OptoVue Retinal Analyzer uses light waves to scan all 10 layers of the retina in less than a second. This ultra high speed, high resolution scanner results in earlier detection, earlier treatment and better outcomes for diseases like glaucoma, diabetes and macular degeneration.
Octopus Visual Field Analyzer
Sensitive testing of side/peripheral vision or visual field is essential in detecting and managing glaucoma and neurologic disease. This precise measurement allows for early detection, early treatment and better outcomes for diseases like glaucoma, history of stroke, headaches, sudden vision loss and more.
NOVA Diopsys VEP & ERG Testing
The Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) directly measures the activity in the visual system. It measures not only the amount of information transmitted to the brain, but how fast it gets there. This exciting new technology is now available to help us determine how your eye talks to your brain in a way that no other instrument or vision test can.
The Electroretinogram (ERG) is similar to an EKG for your heart or an EEG for your brain. When light from an image enters the eye, it is converted into electricity by specialized cells in the retina, which then sends the electricity through the optic nerve to the brain where you “see” the image. The ERG test records how well your retinal cells are conveying those electrical impulses.
