Eye Health Technology

These are just some of the instruments that allow us to provide high-level patient care. The health of our patients eyes, are our number one priority.

I.Profiler: The i.Profiler is computerized technology for measuring a patients prescription (nearsigtedness, farsightedness and astigmatism), measuring distortion (high order aberrations) in the visual system and for measuring the curvature of the front of the eye (the cornea) which is needed for precise contact lens fitting and detection of different corneal diseases. This technology is only found in select eye care practices in the United States. The real value of the i.Profiler is the ability to measure what are known as higher-order aberrations that degrade the quality of your vision, thus creating a custom profile for each eye. Higher-order aberrations are more subtle focusing errors that affect visual quality, particularly when your pupils are large as when driving at night.

Humphrey Visual Field: A visual field test can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, a stroke, brain tumors or other neurological deficits. This test is performed by keeping the patient's gaze fixed while lights flicker at various places within their visual field. That patient will then hit the clicker every time they see the light flicker while still fixating straight ahead.

GDxTM Nerve Fiber Analyzer (GDx): The GDx test is a relatively new test that is useful in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. The GDx uses a type of scanning laser to measure the thickness of the nerve fiber layer, which is damaged in diseases like glaucoma. The procedure is painless and is usually performed on an undilated eye. The GDx maps the nerve fibers and compares them to a database of healthy, glaucoma-free patients. This information is then made available to your doctor in the form of pictures, graphs and statistical data that indicate the probability of glaucoma.

Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) & Electroretinography (ERG) Testing: The VEP measures the strength and speed of the signal from the optic nerve (back of the eye) to the visual cortex (back of the brain). The ERG measures the function of the retina; furthermore, how well the cells in the back of the eye convey electrical impulses. These tests provide your doctor with comprehensive information on the function of your vision and assist in better planning of your treatment.
