Comprehensive Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease in both adults and children. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problem can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice treatment option. Part of your exam includes the following procedures: Slit Lamp Examinations, Dilated Eye Exams, Refraction for Glasses and Contact Lenses and Glaucoma Pressure Testing as well as series of computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes.
Contact Lenses Exam and Fittings
Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient’s needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses and gas permeable contact lenses.
For those patients needing glasses or contact lenses, we offer a complete optical department. Our optical glasses store in Ridgewood, New York, carries a wide selection of high fashion eyewear and designer frames. We also carry a variety of vintage sunglasses as well as unique designer frames imported from Europe.
Certain conditions of the eye and visual system require further testing to asses their
importance. These tests include:
The Visual Field test is a subjective measure of central and peripheral vision, or “side vision,” and is used by your doctor to diagnose, determine the severity of, and monitor your glaucoma. The most common visual field test uses a light spot that is repeatedly presented in different areas of your peripheral vision.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
An Optical Coherence Tomography (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, our 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 within several minutes in our office. Feel free to contact our office to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment with us.
Fundus photography involves the use of a retinal camera to photograph the regions of the vitreous, retina, choroid, and optic nerve.
