Eye Exam Technology

iCare Tonometer

icare tonometer at Garden Grove, CAiCare tonometers are based on unique, patented rebound technology, in which a very light and small probe is used to make momentary contact with the cornea. The quick and painless measurement is barely noticed by the patient and any anesthesia or inconvenient air puffs are not needed at all. Icare technology has been proven accurate and reliable by several clinical studies. iCare Tonometers provide easy and intra-ocular pressure measurement.

OCT Scans

OTC scans in Garden Grove, CAAn Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.

With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.

An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact our office to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment.

The new KR-800PA is an enhanced Auto Kerato-Refractometer with Corneal Mapping. In addition to the corneal mapping function, it features Topcon’s Rotary Prism Technology for unparalleled accuracy, easy operation with 3D auto alignment, a compact design, and a wide touchscreen control monitor with simple and intuitive data display.

Corneal Mapping system supports contact lens fitting and diagnosis of corneal irregular astigmatism. It provides information about the shape of the cornea and is displayed quickly and even overlays the mapping output onto the anterior segment by one single touch.

Visual Field Testing

field analyzer at Garden Grove, CAA visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots (scotomas), peripheral vision loss or visual field abnormalities. It is a straightforward and painless test that does not involve eye drops but does involve the patient’s ability to understand and follow instructions.

An initial visual field screening can be carried out by the optometrist by asking you to keep your gaze fixed on a central object, covering one eye and having you describe what you see at the periphery of your field of view. These machines can create a computerized map out your visual field to identify if and where you have any deficiencies.
