Special Equipment:

Our office specializes in contact lenses. We have specialized equipment such as a topographer to map the entire shape of the cornea. It is used in fitting special contact lenses, for example for people who have keratoconus or irregular shaped corneas. We also carry a very large stock of diagnostic lenses to aid us in fitting many types of difficult problems.

We believe in having diagnostic equipment to aid us in doing a thorough comprehensive eye exam. The equipment includes an Optomap Exam (a scanning laser that photographs a very large portion of the retina, allowing us, in many cases not to have to dilate patientís eyes) We have a retinal camera that allows more detailed photographs of the eyes, a Humphrey Visual Field to record any loss in a patientís field of vision like in glaucoma, tumors, and droopy eyelids. We also have an HRT instrument to evaluate the retina and optic nerve in detail for diseases like macular degeneration. We have a pachymeter to check the thickness of corneas. This is effective for patients that are interested in Lasik surgery and those that may be Glaucoma suspects.
