We are proud to offer the following diagnostic and imaging tests, both as an optional screening during your yearly eye exam, and also as part of a more comprehensive medical examination.
- DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Retinal photography assists in the early detection and management of serious problems such as glaucoma, optic nerve disease, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal holes or degeneration. We especially recommend this test for patients with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, retinal diseases, floaters or headaches.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing Dr. Nguyen to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
- VISUAL FIELD SCREENING
The Visual Field Analyzer screens for loss of sight in your peripheral and central vision: due to diseases such as glaucoma, pituitary tumors, cataracts, retinal and macular detachments, and visual disturbances due to retinal and neurological diseases.
