OPTOS/RHA Retinal Exam

Our office highly recommends Optomap/ RHA retinal screenings because:

  • It allows for an enlarged image of the retina revealing greater detail.
  • RHA provides segmented views 10 layers deep, that a dilated exam cannot.
  • It takes just a few minutes start-to-finish, rather than approximately 45 minutes with dilation.
  • You leave the office with vision intact, rather than with light-sensitivity and blur for 4-6 hours (dilation).
  • Creates a permanent record.
  • Allows for future comparisons–we can compare this year’s image to next year’s image—side by side.
  • Can be reviewed by other doctors, if necessary, for medical conditions or co-management with a surgeon.

Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.


Optos

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides us with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.

Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:

  • A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
  • A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap® image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.

The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.

RHA

RHA™

The RHA™ is a multi-spectral imaging digital ophthalmoscope with a patented optical system that captures high resolution image data through the retinal and subretinal layers. Multi-spectral imaging extends the simple color-based analysis eye care professionals use to distinguish between ocular structures. It both expands the examination wavelength range from green to invisible near infrared wavelengths of light and generates the probe wavelengths to separate specific spectral regions for enhanced visibility and discrimination. The combination of the images and extracted data points provides an enhanced view of the retina.

Eye examinations are crucial to maintaining and possibly improving your vision and systemic health. The Annidis RHA™ is a state-of-the-art technology that allows your eye care professional to provide you with one of the best comprehensive eye examination tools available, aiding in early detection and on-going management of important sight threatening diseases. The RHA Report™ software helps the clinician work directly with you to manage your health.

VS.

Dilation, the traditional method, requires eye drops that enlarge the pupil area and blurs your near vision for approximately 4 to 6 hours and can cause light sensitivity for that duration. The drops require 15-20 minutes to take affect and then another 10 to 15 minutes of evaluation with a bright light -source and a magnifying lens. The resulting clinical evaluation is similar to the Optomap, if the clinician is experienced, patient is cooperative and pupil dilation is maximized. A comprehensive dilation is achieved through 8 individual inverted views of each retina that is manually documented on the exam form by your physician.

Retinal imaging and dilation are complementary forms of examination, one does not preclude the other and both forms may be used at the time of examination for the most comprehensive view of the retina.

VEP

Visual Evoked Potential

VEP measures the electrical activity in the vision system. When light from an image enters your eye, it is converted into electrical energy at the retina and travels through the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain which processes vision. The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP test measures the strength of the signal reaching your visual cortex and how fast it gets there. The VEP technology in the Diopsys® NOVA device helps determine how your eyes communicate with your brain in a way that no other instrument or vision test can.

Oculus Pentacam

Oculus Pentacam

Pentacam is a simple, painless test to measure multiple parameters of the cornea; including corneal thickness, curvature of the front and back surface of the cornea, anterior chamber depth and various other dimensions of the anterior segment. Common uses of the Pentacam aid in contact lens evaluations, refractive surgery, cataracts, and glaucoma.

Cirrus OCT

Cirrus OCT

The OCT allows for detection of other diseases such as macular holes, hypertensive retinopathy and even optic nerve damage. Using an OCT allows for early treatment in patients and dramatically improves the success of these treatments, especially in diseases such as wet macular degeneration – where the eye disease progresses rapidly.

Humphury visual field

Humphrey Visual Field

The Field Analyzer is an important tool to detect and follow glaucoma and many other ocular conditions. Patients who either have glaucoma or are suspected of having glaucoma will undergo repeated testing with this instrument.
The procedure is performed quickly and easily in approximately 8-10 minutes. During the test, lights of varying intensities appear in different parts of the visual field while the patient’s eye is focused on a central spot. The results are compared against the normal healthy eye in order to determine if any damage has occurred.

tear lab

An objective and quantitative point of care diagnostic test that provides precise and predictive information. The TearLab Osmolarity System is intended to measure the osmolarity of human tears to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye disease in patients suspected of having dry eye disease, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation.

mibo thermolo

Our office offers a new and affordable solution for patients suffering from chronic dry eye. Mibo Thermoflo is a revolutionary dry eye treatment that uses continuous and controlled heat to the outer eyelids with a gentle massage. Ultrasound gel is used as a conductor in which the heat emitted from the device is then absorbed into the tissue and helps melt the meibum within clogged oil glands. This will maximize lubrication and help preserve tears offering instant relief to patients suffering from chronic dry eye.

oculus keratograph

The OCULUS Keratograph 5M is a multifaceted instrument that combines many measurements and dry eye analysis suite into one device. The instrument uses Placido disc illumination to take measurements of the ocular surface, and different colors of light emitting diodes (LEDs) are used depending on the application. The Keratograph 5M offers Meibo-Scan for meibography of the upper and lower eyelid to check for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), the most common cause of dry eyes, the TF-Scan for evaluation of the tear film break-up time, and the R-Scan for automatic bulbar redness classification. The Keratograph 5M features a high-definition color camera that can take both images and video. The device’s built-in software lets the doctor view 2D and 3D images as needed.

We use an advanced, computerized instrument that measures your glasses prescription in our office. This new Digital Refraction System from Marco is the biggest change in determining your eyeglass prescription in over 50 years! This automated system provides a more accurate prescription. The biggest advantage over the traditional manual instrument is it allows you to view and compare the difference between both your old and new prescriptions before you purchase your new glasses. The system also incorporates new techniques to balance the two eyes for better binocular comfort and vision.

Digital Refracting System

When patients come to our office for eye exams, many times there is testing that we do to help us diagnosing problems.  One of these tests uses Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT.   Pictures taken with our OCT machine are generated by light waves that reflect off the back of the eye or retina, creating images similar to what could be produced by a low power microscope. The OCT also provides cross-sectional images.   These images can display the various layers of the retina.  This technology is also used to image the optic nerve, which is important in glaucoma treatment and management.

OCT is a non-invasive and no-contact test that doesn't require preparation from the patient. There is no exposure to radiation since the machine uses light to obtain the images.  The patient sits in front of a machine, a couple of bright flashes like a normal camera flash go off, and then the photos can be viewed on the machine within a minute.

The OCT is an extremely valuable tool used to help diagnose and manage common retinal eye diseases such as macular degeneration, macular edema (fluid in the retina), and macular hole/epiretinal membranes. We use the initial OCT images to aid in making a definitive diagnosis.  The OCT compares these initial images of your eye to a database of images of normal eyes matched to your age. In this way, the first OCT images we take can help point out potential issues if there is something that looks different from normal or average.  Subsequent OCT images can then compare how you look now compared to how you looked initially.  This can be very valuable in gauging how well treatment is working or if the problem is progressing.

The other common use of the OCT is for monitoring and managing glaucoma.  We usually take initial images of the optic nerve, and the OCT can then compare these images to those of age-matched healthy control patients.  The OCT will usually be repeated every year so we can follow any changes or progression over time.

The advent of OCT has revolutionized the way we evaluate the retina because we can now detect subtle findings not otherwise easily seen during clinical exams. This makes the OCT one of the most valuable tests we can do in our office.

lasik
 
LASIK

LASIK, a form of refractive surgery, is an popular option for vision correction, often eliminating the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. Simply put, LASIK reshapes the cornea with a laser.

Other surgical alternatives have become available. Among these is a technique called phakic IOL implantation which involves implanting a lens behind the cornea, but in front of the iris. With this new option, many of those who were too highly nearsighted for LASIK are now candidates for refractive surgery.

If you are interested in refractive surgery, please let us know. Refractive surgery is not to be taken lightly. Detailed testing is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery.  If testing shows you to be a good candidate, we can help you choose the refractive surgeon who is most appropriate for your case. In addition, we provide post-operative care for refractive surgery. 

optomap retinal exam
 

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Hieu Huynh, and O.D. are proud to announce the inclusion of the Optomap Retinal Exam as an integral part of your eye exam.

Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can often be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.

An Optomap Retinal Exam provides:

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
  • An overview or map of the retina, giving your eye doctor a more detailed view than he can achieve by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
