Vivid Eyecare offers comprehensive eye examination and is equipped with technologically advanced diagnostic instruments to diagnose, monitor and treat a wide range of eye conditions.

CORNEAL PACHYMETRY

This instrument measures the thickness of the cornea in various sections, information that’s critical in determining candidacy for refractive surgery. In recent clinical research, it has also been used to diagnose and monitor glaucoma.

CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY

This device takes digital images of the front surface of the eye (cornea) and precisely maps its contours using a patented Arc-Step Algorithm. It allows us to monitor potential changes in vision or other disease processes that may cause physical discomfort or fluctuations in vision. Corneal topography is also useful for proper contact lens fit and for determining pre- and post-operative refractive surgery status.

OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)

OCT provides high-definition imaging of retinal structures that cannot be clinically seen. Essential in giving comprehensive eye care for patients with various retinal diseases ranging from age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma to diabetes, this tool is an excellent method for detecting small changes in retinal diseases so they can be properly managed and treated.

RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY

This diagnostic tool enables us to view the retina, macula, and optic nerve without dilating the pupil. It takes high-resolution, high-magnification digital images used in monitoring specific eye conditions.

VISUAL FIELD TESTING

The Humphrey/Zeiss Visual Field Analyzer measures the point-by-point sensitivity of peripheral vision. This is important in diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma and neurological disorders that may have visual consequences.

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer)

The Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) offers unprecedented visualization of anatomical details, superior image data and provides correlation between OCT scan and fundus image.

Diabetic Retinopathy

95% of people diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy, if treated promptly, can avoid significant vision loss.

Laser photocoagulation treatment seals off blood vessels that are leaking into the eye, and stops new blood vessels from growing. This laser treatment only takes a few moments, and is painless.

Sometimes in diabetic retinopathy blood leaks into the vitreous humor in the eye, clouding vision. Some eye doctors wait before choosing treatment, as the blood may dissipate by itself. Another treatment option is a vitrectomy, which removes blood that has already leaked into the vitreous humor.

To improve the supply of blood to the core inner portion of the retina, a laser may be used to destroy tissue on the outside of the retina which is not essential for basic vision. This procedure is used to save vision.

Astigmatism Diagnosis & Treatment

Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that’s easily corrected by eyeglasses or contact lenses and on some occasions, surgery.

Astigmatism is caused when your eye is not completely round. Because our bodies are not perfect, astigmatism occurs in nearly everybody to some degree but for some, not to the degree that it causes blurring. Your eye is naturally shaped like a sphere. Under normal circumstances, when light enters the eye, it bends evenly, creating a clear picture on the back of your eye. In a person with astigmatism, their eye is shaped more like a football and light entering the eye is bent more in one direction than the other. This causes only part of the picture to be in focus at any given time. Objects at any distance can appear blurry and wavy. For vision problems due to astigmatism, glasses or contact lenses, and sometimes even vision correction surgery are all possible treatments.

People with undetected astigmatism often have blurred vision which can be associated with fatigue and eyestrain. While these symptoms may not necessarily be the result of astigmatism, you should schedule an eye exam if you are experiencing one or more symptoms.

Our eye doctor can diagnose astigmatism with a thorough eye exam. Astigmatism may occur in combination with other vision problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. Because astigmatism gets worse over times, visit our eye doctor whenever you notice changes in your vision.
