Special Exam Services
At the Doctor's discretion, additional evaluations may be necessary for your best care. Our staff can discuss them with you as needed. Some of these services are listed below.
Contact Lens Evaluation
Additional evaluation of the corneal surface and tear film, necessary for all contact wearers and refractive surgery patients.
Additional digital mapping of the corneal surface, necessary for refractive surgery and Orthokeratology patients, and for some contact lens wearers. May also be necessary for some patients with corneal irregularities or disease.
Optical Coherence Tomography
High resolution retinal scanner used for retinal imaging and analysis. This sophisticated equipment can be used to examine ocular tissue for diseases of the retina and glaucoma.
Ultrasonic measurement of the corneal thickness, necessary for refractive surgery patients.
Threshold Visual Fields
Comprehensive mapping of peripheral vision sensitivity to evaluate the extent of vision loss.
Measuring the protrusion of the eyeball from the orbit.
Contact Lens Fitting
This is the process of using the examination and corneal measurements to design or redesign any parameter of a contact lens for the individual eye. Conditions as astigmatism, high refractive error, or presbyopia can increase the complexity of the process.
Contact Lens Refitting
After the initial fitting of contact lenses, a patient needs to be observed to evaluate vision and ocular health on the eyes. Change to the contact lens design may be required if vision of ocular health is compromised. Unique ocular conditions may increase the complexity and length on case management for a particular patient. On occasion, refitting an existing contact lens wearer may require case management.
Capturing a permanent digital image of an eye condition with cameras and microscopes for the purpose of documentation and monitoring possible progression of the condition.
Color Vision Analysis
Comprehensive analysis of the type and depth of a color vision defect.
