The technology is designed to simultaneously capture a digital image view of the retina from central pole to periphery.The images allow the detection, documentation and monitoring of ocular pathology and systemic disease that may first present in the periphery. These pathologies might otherwise go undetected using traditional examination techniques and equipment.
In our office, we use the innovative EPIC by Marco, a world leader in eye-care technology. This system uses advanced computer and infrared technologies to help us better evaluate your unique visual needs. The system also allows us to perform additional tests and to compare your old and new prescriptions very quickly. You’ll probably notice that it’s easier for you to tell us, “Which is better – 1 or 2?” In fact, the system makes the entire exam procedure faster and more comfortable for you. Not many offices offer this sophisticated technology. But we feel an obligation to offer the best available care to our patients. Our job is to make your vision as close to perfect as we can, and the EPIC helps us do the job.
Unique technology enables safe, painless and hygienic IOP measurement
The rebound technology is based on the rebound measuring principle in which a light-weight probe is used to make a momentary contact with the cornea. An induction-based coil system is used for measuring motion parameters of the probe. An advanced algorithm combined with state-of-the-art software analyzes deceleration and contact time of the probe when it touches the cornea. Deceleration and contact time of the probe change as a function of IOP. For example, the higher the IOP the faster the probe decelerates and shorter the contact time.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive diagnostic instrument used for imaging the retina. It is the technology for the future because it can enhance patient care. It has the ability to detect problems in the eye prior to any symptoms being present in the patient. Optical Coherence Tomography is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It is effectively ‘optical ultrasound’, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional images.
