Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a state-of-the-art diagnostic technology that provides direct, real-time, cross sectional images of the retina. This technology is much like ultrasound technology, except it uses light waves rather than ultra-sound waves. The OCT scans an infrared red light across the retina, which generates a cross sectional image of the tissues in great detail.
This test is quick, requires no dilation, and enables the doctor to view and accurately measure structural changes in the retina, as if it were under a microscope. The high-resolution images produced by OCT allow for early diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, including glaucoma, macular edema, macular hole, and age-related macular degeneration.
The Humphrey Visual Field (HVF) analyzer is a sophisticated instrument used to provide a computerized measure of peripheral vision. The analyzer can detect visual field defects before they become symptomatic. It is an essential tool in the detection and management of a variety of eye and central nervous system diseases, including glaucoma, stroke, and brain tumors.
