Eye Exams & Diseases
Comprehensive basic eye examinations for sight defects, eye muscle coordination, vision focus, eye movement skills, convergence insufficiency, eye diseases, infections, allergies, and eye injuries are conducted daily.
Eye Disease Detection: cataracts, glaucoma, infections, injuries, strokes (cerebral vascular disease), and all degenerative eye diseases; also offer second opinions.
Latest high technology instruments to diagnose glaucoma, corneal disease, macular degeneration, retinal disease, cataracts, optic nerve problems, visual loss due to strokes or head injuries. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive CAT scan device that is used to evaluate glaucoma, optic nerve anatomy, retinal disease, and early or late macular degeneration. The OCT is a great way to evaluate retinal nerves before problems develop and is utilized in preventative programs to keep the retina healthy. Special preventative programs are available.
Digital Retinal Photography to assess retinal tissues is used daily and available to help in assessment of retina and optic nerve problems.
Corneal Topography: Computer Evaluation is used to evaluate the front of the eye for contact lens wear, distorted corneas, injuries of front of eye, keratoconus, and pterygium. This is utilized extensively with orthokeratology and LASIK patients.
Electronic Visual Field is evaluation for retina and optic nerve function due to glaucoma and other eye and retinal disease problems. Head injury and stroke assessments of visual fields are performed with computer assistance.
Frequency Doubling Technology Visual Field is evaluation (the only one in Imperial County) provided to assess very subtle changes in the visual fields with computerized testing.
Color Visual Field Evaluation is also utilized to assess general suppressions of the visual system and toxic conditions from poor nutrition, medications, or infections.
