Cirrus HD-OCT offers the ultimate benefit for people living with glaucoma – the best possible care. Early detection helps your optometrist to diagnose and control glaucoma before permanent damage is done.
If you have glaucoma or are developing glaucoma, Cirrus HD-OCT enables your optometrist to watch closely for the slightest changes and respond as needed. Cirrus HD-OCT gives your optometrist high-quality, highly accurate knowledge of your eyes that is simply unavailable with any other technology. The extremely detailed understanding of your eyes can be instrumental and essential to safeguarding your vision for many years to come.
As part of our commitment to providing you with the most advanced technology available, MacKenzie Eye Care is proud to recommend that you have an Optomap® Retinal Exam as part of your annual eye exam. Many eye problems can develop without any obvious sight loss or other symptoms. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide, glaucoma damages and eventually destroys nerve cells in the eye, resulting in permanent vision loss. Our Doctors of Optometry use the Humphrey Matrix for early detection during your annual comprehensive eye exam. It is a safe and accurate visual field instrument that can detect glaucoma early. For further testing, Drs. MacKenzie and Curry may recommend a secondary exam using our Humphrey’s Field Analyzer.
During your comprehensive eye health exam our professionally trained staff will capture a digital retinal image using high-resolution Canon fundus camera to take pictures of the inside of your eye. This helps your Doctor of Optometry assess the health of your retina and helps them to detect and manage such eye and health conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration. Finding retinal disorders as early as possible is critical to potentially preventing serious disease progression and even vision loss.
The Medmont E300 Corneal Topographer is a renowned market leader in corneal topography, offering superior patient comfort and accuracy and the robust features that come from working in the Medmont Studio integrated software environment. Our highly trained staff will map your cornea using our advanced topographer. Results can be used to assist in specialty contact lens fitting, contact lens wearers, Laser refractive surgery and corneal dystrophy (example: Keratoconus).
Plusoptix devices detect vision disorders in children to fight Amblyopia (example: lazy eyes), provide full refraction information during eye exams and help in researching the functioning of the eye. It is especially designed for pre-verbal infants (6 months and older) as well as patients with developmental delay, autism, traumatic brain injury and restrictive mobility.
Parents usually don’t know that children need to “learn” good vision. The eyes, optical nerves and brain are there but the interaction needs to be trained in much the same way we learn to speak and walk. While parents are able to observe progress in speaking and walking, what a child sees remains unknown. In the first years of life, vision disorders can prevent appropriate development of vision and may lead to Amblyopia. Amblyopia is a life long vision impairment that cannot be treated after childhood. Only through early detection and treatment of these vision disorders, can Amblyopia be prevented.
Nikon Speedy K Autorefractor Keratometer
Automated refraction and corneal measurements to aide in evaluating refractive errors for myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and anisometropia. Objective testing which is very helpful with children and non-verbal or persons with disabilities.
Tonometry is the procedure your Doctor of Optometry performs to determine intraocular pressure (IOP), the fluid pressure inside the eye. It is an important test used to evaluate a patients risk for glaucoma.
Pachymetry is the process of measuring thickness of your cornea. Dr. MacKenzie performs corneal pachymetry during Pre-LASIK exams, for Keratoconus screening and to screen for patients suspected of developing glaucoma.
