EYE CARE SERVICES

  • Comprehensive Eye Exam.  A comprehensive eye exam, with dilation, includes a series of tests to determine the health of the eyes and visual status. 
            These tests are as follows:
  1. Visual Acuity Testing. Visual acuity is a measurement of the patient's vision using an eye chart. This exam is a preliminary test of how clearly a patient can see in each eye; however, it does not give a prescription for corrective lenses.
  2. Confrontational Fields. This grossly measures the patient's peripheral (side) vision.  This test also allows the doctor to determine if conditions, such as strokebrain tumors, or glaucoma, have affected your vision.
  3. Pupil Testing. Assesses the neurological function of the nervous system.
  4. Retinoscopy.  The retinscope is a hand-held instrument that allows the doctor to obtain you approximate prescription for eyeglasses.
  5. Phoropter | Refraction.   The phoropter an instrument that is positioned in front of the patient’s face during the eye exam. Refraction is preformed to determine a patients' refractive status -  will tell the doctor which prescription lenses will correct the eyesight.
  6. Slit Lamp Test.  The slit lamp is an instrument that allows the doctor to examine the internal and external parts of the eye in detail, such as the conjunctiva, iris, lens, cornea, retina and the optic nerve. *Early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases are essential for preventing vision loss.
  7. Tonometry.  Tonometry is a test to determine the IOP (intraocular pressure- the pressure inside your eye) and is one test used to detect glaucoma.  Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that can cause peripheral vision loss if the IOP in the eye is too high.
  8. Dilated Pupillary Exam.  Pupil Dilation drops are administered to give the doctor a wider field of view of the retina for signs of diseases. 

Tear Osmolarity

The TearLab Osmolarity test is used to test the homeostatic osmo-regulation of the tears, and is a key biomarker to identify both aqueous deficiency and its relation to Dry Eye Disease by collecting a small sample of tears and analyzing the tear osmolarity.




InflammaDry

dry

InflammaDry is a rapid, immunoassay test for the visual, qualitative, in vitro detection of elevated levels of the MMP-9 protein in human tears, from patients suspected of having dry eye. MMP-9 is a nonspecific inflammatory marker that has consistently been shown to be elevated in the tears of patients with dry eyes. InflammaDry is to be used to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation.

TearCare

tearcare

TearCare is an alternative for dry eye patients who have dryness as a result of Meibomian Gland Disorder (MGD). MGD is blockage or some form of dysfunction of the meibomian glands. The Meibomian glands are located along the rims of the eyelid and they produce meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye’s tear film. TearCare works by applying localized heat to the eyelids; this heat functions to loosen up the blocked glands and allow the doctor to express them.



LipiScan

lipiscan

LipiScan Dynamic Meibomian Imager (DMI) is an ophthalmic imaging device intended for use by a physician or trained optometric technician in adult patients to capture, archive, manipulate, and store digital images of the Meibomian glands. The Meibomian glands are located along the rims of the eyelid and they produce meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye’s tear film. These images allow the physician to identify any truncation, elimination, and/or blockage of these glands, which may be the cause of dry eyes.
