Retinal Photography
This highly recommended procedure allows doctors to have a high resolution image of the inside of your eye. Retinal Digital Photography is a sophisticated instrument allowing for advanced primary eye care. Using digital camera technology the instrument is able to capture a detailed picture of the retina (the back of the eye) that can be electronically stored. This enables superior diagnostic capability and is an excellent method to monitor long term eye health.

A Visual Field Analyzer is a specialized instrument used to provide information essential to both diagnosing and monitoring the progression of ocular diseases. This computerized instrument accurately assesses a patient’s peripheral or side vision. Visual field testing is used in the diagnosis of many ocular and neurological conditions, and is the gold standard for monitoring glaucoma.
