OPTOMAP is the most advanced retinal exam technology. It dramatically enhances our capability to help you and your family, care for your vision. The OPTOMAP enables us to make an early diagnosis of many abnormal vision conditions.
How Does it Work?
Optomap combines the science of retinal photography with recent advances in software and imaging technology. It provides and ultra-wide field view of the retina that is non-invasive and allows you to view your retinal image with the doctor during the exam. It provides an annual, permanent record which gives your doctor comparisons for tracking and diagnosing potential issues.
Is This Procedure Necessary?
Optomap helps us enhance documentation, with digital photos, of your visual health over time. We can then, more accurately, monitor many eye conditions including; glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal holes or detachments and systemic diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure. For individuals who already show some type of ocular abnormality, imaging may be medically necessary and will be performed at intervals deemed appropriate by the doctor.
Cirrus OCT by Zeiss
One of the best diagnostic tools on the market today for diagnosing many diseases. The 3D imaging of the Cirrus captures spectacular cross-section images second to none and helps identify the most subtle pathology.
Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)
VEP measures the electrical activity in the vision system. When light from an image enters your eye, it is converted into electrical energy at the retina and travels through the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain which processes vision. The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP test measures the strength of the signal reaching your visual cortex and how fast it gets there.
The VEP technology in the Diopsys® NOVA device helps determine how your eyes communicate with your brain in a way that no other instrument or vision test can.
Pattern Electroretinography (ERG)
ERG measures the function of your retina – the light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye. When light from an image enters the eye, it is converted into electrical energy by specialized cells in the retina. These cells send electrical impulses through the optic nerve to the brain where the image is processed. The Diopsys® NOVA-ERG test records how well the cells of the retina are conveying electrical impulses within the eye.
ERG results have been demonstrated to aid in the diagnosis and treatment planning of many vision disorders.
The BEMER therapy stimulates the circulation in the smallest blood vessels and improves the supply and waste disposal for organs and tissue. A wide range of the population of all ages can benefit from this.
