We have the ability to take very detailed photographs of the retina. This digital image can be magnified and enhanced to allow us to see features in the back of the eye and make a better analysis that standard magnification cannot. This process is comfortable (nothing touches the eye), the image is taken in seconds, and retinal photographs can eliminate the need for dilation in many patients.
Other benefits include:

The Topcon KR-8000 is a combined automatic refractor and keratometer. With the push of a single button, this unit measures the curvature of your cornea and the axial length of your eye. It provides a detailed, colored topographical map of your cornea as well as an approximate prescription that the doctor will then refine.This machine is crucial for the correct fitting of contact lenses and monitoring corneal conditions such as keratoconus.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the latest technology available for the treatment and management of retinal disease. OCT is a non-invasive technology used for imaging the retina, the multi-layered sensory tissue lining the back of the eye. OCT is the first instrument to allow doctors to see cross-sectional images of the retina. It is revolutionizing the early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular holes, pre-retinal membranes, macular swelling and even optic nerve damage.
