A comprehensive eye exam, including a thorough retinal exam, can detect early signs of numerous diseases that affect not only your eyes and your sight, but also your overall health. The Optomap Retinal Exam uses the latest technology to help our doctors identify abnormalities that could indicate the onset of a number of diseases that often present first in the retina. In these instances, individuals typically do not experience any pain or outward symptoms. Diseases that can be detected are as follows: Cancer, Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Age Related Macular Degeneration, Retinal Detachment, Glaucoma, and Diabetic Retinopathy.
Provides comprehensive glaucoma, retinal imaging and analysis, and also provides in vivo, cross-sectional images and quantitative analysis of retinal features to optimize the diagnosis and monitoring of retinal disease and is used for enhanced pre- and post-therapy assessment.
Provides retinal imaging and analysis to facilitate a more complete assessment of pre- and postop cataract patients for better patient management. Images and measures RNFL and the optic nerve head to aid in the detection and management of glaucoma.
Compares retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macula thickness to an age-matched normative database. Cirrus OCT cross-sectional images are valuable for clinical evaluation of macular holes, macular edema and other retinal pathologies.
The first and only clinician treatment for Blepharitis. Over 30% of all patients suffer from some type of blepharitis symptoms. BlephEx is a new, in-office procedure that allows the clinician to take an active role in treating blepharitis instead of simply relying on the patient’s ability to perform semi-effective home lid scrubs. BlephEx reduces scurf and bacterial debris, the main causes of inflammatory lid disease, and improves the overall health of the eyelid. The BlephEx treatment is well tolerated and only takes a few minutes to perform. This treatment can save the patient hundreds of dollars in the costs of prescription drops and artificial tears. Properly performed, BlephEx™ will reduce or alleviate these chronic and debilitating symptoms in your patients. Treatments are typically repeated at regular monthly intervals depending on the severity of the disease. By eliminating the inflammatory etiology of blepharitis, the overall health of the eyelid is improved. Patients can then begin to produce more of their own tears and finally enjoy a life free from the chronic and irritating symptoms associated with blepharitis and its subsequent dry eye disease.
Common symptoms of Blepharitis.
- Itching or scratchy eyes
- Foreign body sensation
- Dry eyes
- Eye rubbing

TearLab is An objective and quantitative point-of-care diagnostic test that provides precise and predictive information. The TearLab Osmolarity System* is intended to measure the osmolarity of human tears to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye disease in patients suspected of having dry eye disease, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation. In fact, dry eye disease occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears. That’s why it’s essential you get your tears analyzed by your eye doctor. Only an eye doctor can properly diagnose your problem and treat it appropriately. Your eye doctor will take a sample of tears from each eye and use the TearLab device to measure osmolarity (the saltiness of your tears). As osmolarity in your tears increase ocular surface cells become damaged. Your doctor will need an amount of tear fluid no larger than the period at the end of this sentence

Visual Field Testing
Many eye and brain disorders can cause peripheral vision loss and other visual field abnormalities. Visual field tests are performed to detect blind spots (scotoma) and other visual field defects, which can be an early signs of problems.
The size and shape of a scotoma offer important clues about the presence and severity of diseases of the eye, optic nerve and visual structures in the brain. Other conditions associated with blind spots and other visual field defects include diseases of the retina, optic neuropathy, brain tumors and stroke. When diagnosed with glaucoma or other conditions that affect your visual field we are able to monitor the progression of the condition in our office.
Corneal topography is a procedure used to monitor and measure changes that may occur to the shape and integrity of the cornea of your eye. A corneal topographer projects a series of illuminated rings, referred to as a Placido disc, onto the surface of the cornea, which are reflected back into the instrument. After analyzing the reflected rings of light, the computer generates a topographical map of the cornea. The images produced by the topographer can be helpful for your eye doctor when analyzing the health of your eyes. Corneal topographies can be used to monitor corneal conditions such as keratoconus. It can also be used for Refractive surgery screenings, Pre-operative intraocular lens selection and Ocular surface disorder evaluations.
