What is OCT Imaging?

This type of imaging visualizes the structures of your eye — from the front, or anterior segment, to the back, or retina. Your doctor may use OCT aid in diagnosing disease and managing your ocular health.

In-Depth Analysis of Nerve Fiber Layer Structures

state-of-the-art tools to aid in diagnosing and caring for your patients with ocular disease. In fact, OCT has become indispensable to many of today's eye care practices, and clinicians worldwide are finding they do not want to practice without it.

Diverse Views of the Retina

OCT systems include dense 3D cubes of data that can be dissected to visualize individual retinal layers in an en face view, and thickness maps with normative comparison. With this information, you gain new insights into the health of the retina to increase diagnostic confidence and measure your patient's response to treatment.

Pachymetry Mapping

Easily evaluate corneal thickness and calculate change in thickness between visits. Pre-Surgical Planning and Post-Operative Assessment Optovue epithelial thickness mapping or ETM Cornea Advance enables visualization and quantification of anterior segment structures and corneal thickness to aid in refractive surgery planning and post-operative care. The exclusive Total Cornea Power (TCP®) scan provides a precise calculation of the corneal power in post-refractive surgery patients by measuring both the front and back surfaces of the cornea. Anterior Segment Anterior segment OCT further expands the role of OCT in clinical practice and gives you the ability to visualize cross sections of the cornea, see and measure corneal angles, measure and track corneal thickness over multiple visits, and calculate IOL powers in post-refractive surgery patients.

Zeiss Retinal Camera

In treating any disease, it is important to keep exact records of changes in the condition over time. For eye diseases, often the best way to do this is with photographs of the inner structures of the eye. Ocular photography uses special equipment to capture images of the retina, the vitreous and the optic nerve. These photographs help physicians keep tabs on glaucoma, macular degeneration and other conditions.

Automated Visual Field Testing

Visual field testing is an important tool to detect and monitor blind spots caused by glaucoma. Thanks to new developments, it is now possible to do faster and more reliable visual field testing. Visual field testing can be determined in 10 minutes or less per eye, in most cases. The size of your visual field is the furthest you can see to the side when looking straight ahead. This test is important to make sure there are no abnormal blind spots in your visual field. Automated Visual Field Testing This test is usually conducted by a technician who is trained to help you get the most accurate reading possible. While you are seated comfortably, the technician will ask you to look straight ahead at a central target directly in front of you. You will be instructed to press a buzzer when you become aware of a small light to one side, within your peripheral field. It is important that you keep your eyes focused on the central target throughout this examination so the technician can get an accurate reading of your complete visual field. To get the best results, you must be alert and concentrate on the central target. Once the results from this test are printed out by the computer, your eye doctor can easily detect blind spots in your visual field. If a field test reveals an abnormal, the doctor may retest certain areas of your visual field using a computer. The printed results of this test will help the doctor verify the first test was correct. To confirm a blind spot , the computer may recheck an area several times. It is best to relax and do your best.

Zeiss-Humphrey Field Analyzer II 750i

Zeiss-Humphrey Field Analyzer II 750i Blue-Yellow Perimetry A New Dawn in Visual Field Testing 750i, The Gold Standard Validated by decades of research and clinical experience, HFA is the accepted standard of care in glaucoma diagnosis and management. JonesVisionCenter_HFA2Blue-yellow perimetry, also known as Short Wavelength Automated Perimetry (SWAP), represents a recent and exciting advance in the early identification of glaucomatous visual field loss. It differs from standard automated static perimetry only in that a carefully chosen wavelength of blue light is used as the stimulus, and a specific color and brightness of yellow light is used for the background illumination. Except for these differences, blue-yellow perimetry is still a basic threshold perimetry test, in which standard Goldmann stimuli are presented in the conventional way. The Humphrey Field Analyzer II-i series is a wheelchair accessible, computerized perimeter used to examine the patient's visual field. By using SITA™, the expert operating systems threshold testing time is reduced by up to 70%. A patented aspherically shaped bowl provides a compact, ergonomic design to increase patient comfort while testing out to 90º. A video eye monitor enables the operator to align and track patient eye position. Gaze tracking provides real time evaluation of eye fixation

What Clinical Studies Have Shown "Blue-on-yellow perimetry deficits are an early indicator of glaucomatous damage and are predictive of impending glaucomatous visual field loss for standard white-on-white automated perimetry." Chris Johnson, PhD, et al.1 "Preliminary findings suggest that SWAP may be useful in detecting certain neuro-ophthalmologic deficits more readily than standard automated visual field testing, especially for optic neuritis and multiple sclerosis."
