North Texas Eye Care Equipment
The Zeiss iProfiler combines an autorefractometer, a wavefront aberrometer, a corneal topographer, and a keratometer in one fully automated device that collects measurements in less than 30 seconds for both eyes. The data calculated is transferred to the customized Zeiss iScription lens with an accuracy of up to 1/100 of a diopter.
The Humphrey FDT (visual fields) uses frequency doubling technology to provide a clinically verified way to detect early visual field loss. Visual field testing is a basic element in the standard of care for glaucoma management, previous retinal injuries, papilledema, occular hypertension, and macular degeneration.
The Optos 200Dx Widefield Retinal Imaging device is one of the most accurate, complete retinal imaging devices available. The technology is designed to simultaneously capture a digital image view of the retina from central pole to periphery. The images allow early detection, documentation, and monitoring of ocular patholgy and systemic disease that may first present in the periphery, even without symptoms. These pathologies might otherwise go undetected using traditional examination techniques and equipment.
The Konan ECC represents the latest in endothelial cell analysis, which allows us to view a more comprehensive look at the cornea. This is particularly valuable in cases such as keratoconus, corneal transplantations, or corneal dystrophies. The Konan ECC also provides corneal thickness measurements (pachymetry) which is very useful in the diagnosis of glaucoma, keratoconus, corneal dystrophy, or corneal degeneration. Pachymetry also provides insight into candidacy for elective refractive procedures.
The Zeiss Cirrus OCT provides us with many different retinal and anterior segment capabillities. This instrument allows us to map the thickness of your optic nerves, macular, or areas of concern in the peripheral retina. By mapping the thickness in the affected area, we are able to track and monitor the progression of glaucoma, macular degeneration, drusen, choroidal nevus, keratoconus, corneal abrasions, corneal scars, and many other diagnoses. Occular Coherence Tomography is also very useful in analyzing the toxicity of many high risk medications. In the most common case, Plaquenil (used to treat rheumatoid arthritis & lupos) can cause damage to the retina. By using the Zeiss OCT, we can catch this damage early, before the damage is irreversible.
The Diopsys Vision Testing System uses two technologies (VEP & pERG) to objectively measure the functional responses of the entire visual pathway from the anterior segment of the eye to the visual cortex. The device provides quantitative information to support the interpretation and management of many eye diseases and vision deficits, and reports and documents the results of practitioner intervention for tracking patient response. It is non-invasive and provides quick qualitative analsysis of the VEP and pERG waveform and easy quantitative analysis of the amplitude (strength) and latency (speed) of the visual pathway. This device is useful in the diagnosis and progression of glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, macular degeneration, optic nerve disorders, amblyopia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, visual field loss, and many others.
