Technology at Vision Care


The team at Vision Care Associates uses advanced technology to help our patients keep their vision healthy and assist us in diagnosing potential problems.

Optomap Retinal Exam

Extensively mapping the entire retina is the function of this sophisticated equipment.  A digital image of nearly the entire retina allows detection of retinal disease earlier and more effectively.  For more information, please visit Optomap.com.

Optical Coherence Tomographer (OTC)

Early signs of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other eye diseases are highly visible by using the OTC to produce a microscopic view of the layers of the retina.

Preferential Hyperacuity Perimeter (PHP)

The PHP is an advanced tool used to identify new growth of blood vessel abnormalities in the wet form of macular degeneration.

Visual Field Analyzer

This technology is able to locate and classify areas of vision loss because of conditions such as glaucoma or brain injury.

Pachymeter

A Pachymeter determines cornea thickness to assess glaucoma risk and establish a baseline for LASIK refractive surgery.

Cornea Topographer

By using a Cornea Topographer, we are able to map the cornea surface to detect irregularities.  This assists us in controling cornea disorders, helps during a contact lens fitting, and LASIK refractive surgery.

Advanced Retinal Imaging and Telemedicine

Equipment used for digital retinal photography produces a high resolution color digital image of the retina and instantly displays it on a monitor.  Early detection is possible for changes in the retina and diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.  If an additional consult is required, images then can be e-mailed to other doctors for review.
