Yaryan Eye Care Center offers top of the line care with the help of specialized equipment that is offered in our offices. The Optomap, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), Visual Field, and Topography equipment allow our Optometrists to ensure that you are receiving the best vision care possible.
The Optomap ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging device helps you and your doctor make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being. Each patient will be given the opportunity to receive an optomap as part of the comprehensive eye exam. The Optomap ultra-wide retinal imaging device captures more than 80% of your retina in one image, which is impressive since traditional methods typically only reveal about 10-15% of the retina at one time. This ultra-wide view enhances your doctor's ability to detect the earliest signs of disease that appears on the retina. For reference, the retina is the delicate lining at the back of the eye which light strikes through the lens then producing a picture that is sent to the brain allowing you to see. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to the brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness. However, most retinal conditions can be treated successfully with early detection. This is why the Optomap can make such a huge difference in your care!
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is an advanced eye scan suitable for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light waves rather than sound waves to see beneath the surface of the eye. It allows your eye doctor to see the different layers which make up the back of the eye. This scan is non-invasive, painless and can be completed in 60 seconds or less. The OCT can help identify common eye conditions including Age-related macular degeneration, Diabetes, Glacoma, macular holes, and vitreous detachments. The health of your eyes matters to you and it matters to us too, which is why we are offering OCT to our patients.
Humphrey Visual Field
The Humphrey Visual Field is a diagnostic test to measure visual fields. This test measures the entire area of peripheral vision that can be seen while the eye is focused on a central point. During the test, lights of varying intensity appear in different parts of the visual field while the patient's eye is focused on a certain spot. The perception of these lights are charted and then compared to the results of a healthy eye at the same age of the patient to determine if any damage has occurred. The process is performed in about 20 minutes and helps to diagnose and monitor Glaucoma. Patients that have Glaucoma will have this test on a regular basis to monitor the progress of the disease. The Humphrey Visual Field can also detect conditions within the optic nerve and certain neurological conditions.
Corneal topography is a computerized test that maps the curve of your cornea. An eye with normal vision has an evenly rounded cornea, but a flat cornea, or one that is too steep or unevenly curved, produces less than perfect vision results. Corneal topography helps to detect irregular conditions invisible to most conventional testing. This test can be beneficial in the evaluation of certain diseases and injuries of the cornea including: corneal diseases, corneal abrasions, corneal deformities, irregular astigmatism following corneal transplants, and more. This non-contact testing is painless and brief!
