Specialized Testing

 


During your routine eye examination, Dr. Day may discover areas of your eyes that are suspicious of an illness such as Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration. Or perhaps your Primary Care Physician has reason to refer you to our office for testing due to certain medication side effects. If these screening tests determine that further testing is needed, one of our technicians will schedule you for an appointment in our Specialized Testing department.


 

We utilize highly specialized, state-of-the-art equipment to gather detailed information about the health of your eyes. One of the instruments we use is called an Optical Coherence Tomographer, or OCT for short. This instrument uses light to capture three-dimensional images from the delicate tissues near the very back of your eyes. The information gathered is helpful in diagnosing and monitoring Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, as well as a host of other ocular disorders. This imaging is similar to an MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging instrument.
