Our office technology includes, but is not limited to the following specialized equipment:
A Keratometer, also known as a Opthalmometer, is a diagnostic instrument for measuring the curvature of the anterior surface of the Cornea, particularly for assessing the extent and axis of Astigmatism
An instrument that automatically measures the refractive condition of the eye. It is helpful in the process of determining the proper spectacle prescription, especially in those patients with a limited ability to communicate.
An instrument that measures the pressure in the eye, without having to touch the eye. It is very helpful in screening patients for the risk of Glaucoma.

Used for: Glaucoma, glaucoma suspect, take certain medications that affect the Retina; such as Plaquinel. Field loss due to stroke or other head trauma. Medical correction of droopy eyelids (Ptosis) can be approved using the FDT
Humphrey Automated Perimetry
An instrument that precisely determines the peripheral field of vision. It is essential in monitoring those patients who have Glaucoma, or are Glaucoma suspects.
Digital Retinal Camera
An instrument that quickly captures high quality digital images of the retina and stores them in a computerized database. It is very helpful in documenting and monitoring patients with retinal disease or anomalies.
