In a very friendly atmosphere, our optometrists meet their patients to discuss any eye or general health topic. A winning formula that allows discovering vision’s little secrets.
Optical Coherence Tomography New
Optical coherence tomography or “OCT” is an extremely efficient technique. Through the use of infrared light, it allows for the analysis of the macula, an oval-shaped spot on the retina, at several angles through sectional images. Thus, it becomes possible to measure the thickness of the macula to the nearest micrometre.
OCT provides quality monitoring for patients, particularly those with diabetic retinopathy. Macular degeneration can be quickly detected.
One of OCT’s greatest advantages is that it is non-contact. Ophthalmologists can now observe the eye in depth using 3D technology, in the same manner as a histological examination.
By using this incredibly precise technique, all facets of the retina are suddenly revealed. Macular tissue, then, can no longer keep any secrets from our specialists!
Heidelberg 3 Retinal Tomograph
A confocal laser imaging system used to observe anterior and posterior segments of the eye. This device allows the specialist to perform a non-evasive exam of the retina, cornea and head of the optic nerve. This tomograph consists of three modules that can work together or individually.
The HRT 3 is the most efficient technology to assess, diagnose and treat glaucoma. It enhances the specialist’s efficiency by detecting clinically significant changes in the optic nerve head’s structure.
In the West, diabetic retinopathy is believed to be the most important cause of decreased visual acuity, and even blindness. This module instantly identifies and evaluates edema. It allows measuring the evolution of retinal edema with the utmost precision.
This module captures images of the cornea, limbus and conjunctiva, and even allows endothelial cell count, as well as tachymetry.
This device relays detailed and complete information during pre and post-surgical exams, such as:
- Effective zone of the central cornea (Dr. Holladay method) as a result of refractive surgery;
- Measurement of spherical aberration;
- Measuring the cornea’s efficiency;
- O-intraocular lenses planning tool;
- Visual acuity simulation;
- Corneal tomography.
