Comprehensive Eye Exam: A complete eye examination does more than determine how clearly you see and which lens prescription, if necessary, will give you the best possible vision. Your Ophthalmologist or Optometrist will also evaluate the health and function of your entire eye. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): This is a non-contact retinal scanning device used to study the anatomy of the retina and optic nerve, and takes a few minutes.
Fluorescein Angiography: Fluorescein angiography is performed to evaluate retinal disease. A technician will photograph your retina using a digital camera system. This study requires a small injection of a harmless dye (fluorescein) into an arm vein. Sometimes a second dye is also used which is called Indocyanine Green (ICG). Serial photographs are taken of your retina through a dilated pupil. The test takes approximately 15-20 minutes.
Visual Field Testing: This is a non-invasive test for measuring peripheral field and central vision. It does not require dilation and takes approximately 15 minutes.
B-Scan Ultrasonography: This is a non-invasive imaging device which allows retinal evalution when there is poor visualization by examination. It takes approximately 10 minutes.
