The Latest Eye Exam Technology With Vision Source
Your Vision Source eye doctors ensure that their patients have access to the most modern eye care available. While the type of instruments and diagnostic equipment may vary at each location since each Vision Source eye care practice is independently owned, every doctor in our network is committed to advancing eye care with the latest eye exam technology.
Below is a list of some of the eye diagnostic equipment and technology we use while performing your examination:
Computerized Auto-Refractors & Phoropter
Allows the doctor to determine the best eyeglass prescription for your vision clarity. Auto-refractors are used in concert with the Phoropter, providing an assessment of lens types appropriate for your particular vision.
Used for determining precise contact lens fittings and diagnosis of corneal disease, measuring the curvature of your eye.
Digital Retinal Imaging
A high-resolution imaging system provides a wide-angle view of the back of the eye. Some locations may have newer technology such as OPTOS, allowing for a digital view of the back of the eye without dilation.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT provides an accurate, three-dimensional cross-section of the tissue of the eye, allowing your Vision Source doctor to see indicators of vision problems that normally would not be immediately visible.
Digital Fundus Camera
This provides a digital imaging system for a detailed view of outer eye structures and the retina.
Slit Lamp Biomicroscope
The slit lamp uses variable slit images of light to examine the eye from front to back and is often used with other digital imaging instruments.
Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope
In cases where a complete view of the inside of the eye is necessary, a bright, head-mounted light source enables your eye doctor a detailed view.
Computer Field Analyzer
Your field of vision may be affected as a result of Glaucoma or other brain conditions. The Computer Field Analyzer allows the doctor to precisely determine the breadth of your field of vision.
An instrument used to measure thickness of the cornea. This is especially important for glaucoma detection and analysis.
If you have a current pair of glasses, the instrument allows us to accurately read your current prescription.
