Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.
Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT) is the latest technological advancement for the early detection and treatment of common eye conditions, including glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures and is able to produce high quality images of the retina in a non-invasive, patient friendly manner.
A visual field test measures how much peripheral vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Essentially lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. Your head is kept still and you have to place your chin on a chin rest. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating.
