Our Practice has invested in cutting edge technology to help your doctor to prevent blindness
Ocular Coherence Tomography
We are pleased to offer, as an addition to your complete examination, the option of obtaining an OCT or Optical Coherence Tomography image of the back of your eyes. The obtained image is by far the most advanced diagnostic test available to detect early stages of eye disease such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and many others. Early detection can occur even before any symptoms are reported by the patient or seen clinically by the doctor. The procedure takes only seconds to complete and is entirely non-contact and non-invasive. It requires no input from you the patient, and the results are available instantly for review by the doctor. We specifically recommend the screening for those individuals over the age of 40, diabetics, those with hypertension, high cholesterol and those with family history of macular degeneration or glaucoma. The OCT wellness check cannot be billed to your insurance carrier. The cost is $35.00 ($17.50 per eye) and is in addition to the standard complete examination fee.

Zeiss CLARUS 500
The advent of widefield retinal imaging has shown us that indications of disease are often located in the far periphery of the retina. CLARUS 500 is the next-generation retina imaging system from Zeiss that provides true color and high-resolution across the entire ultra-widefield image. This allows for simultaneous non-contact pole-to-periphery views of up to 200 degrees of retina. This can lead to early detection of common diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. The exam is quick, painless, and may not require dilation drops.
