In addition to traditional optometric equipment, Eyetek Optometrists offer patients the latests technology available to assess vision and eye health.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY - OCT
OCT is the latest imaging technology used to scan and photograph the structures of the eye. It is similar to an ultrasound but uses light rather than sound to create detailed pictures of the eye structures.
Three-dimensional images assist optometrists in making early diagnoses of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and many other conditions.
A Fundus camera is a camera with a specialized microscope, used for photographing the retina at the back of the eye. Retinal photographs give the optometrist an excellent view of the optic nerve, macula (central vision) and blood vessels.
At Eyetek, every patient's retina is photographed and assessed as part of the comprehensive eye examination.
A procedure optometrists use to evaluate the intra-ocular pressure, the pressure of the fluid inside the eye. It is an important test in the evaluation of patients at risk of glaucoma. At Eyetek, the eye pressure test is performed on all adolescent and adult patients as part of the comprehensive eye exam.
No all babies are willing participants in eye exams but the Plus Opix does assist in making the experience more fun and fast for the little ones! The Plus Optix gives the optometrist a guideline or estimate of a young patient's prescription and it serves as an excellent starting point for the complete eye exam.
