You may already know by now that careful, detailed eye evaluations are critical for diagnosing any abnormalities or disorders that threaten your eyes' health or visual acuity. As technology has advanced to meet these challenges, Vision Quest Eye Care Center, Inc., has advanced along with it. We're proud to offer the latest and most effective eye care technologies to our Dover & Milford patients.
The eye is a complex and delicate organ, with internal and external structures that may be impaired by even the slightest deviation or disease. The more accurate our equipment is, the more precisely we can diagnose such problems. That's why we continue to invest in state-of-the-art equipment and techniques such as:
OptoMap is a system for creating panoramic digital scans of the inside of the eye. This technology not only lets us view most of your eyes' internal structures without dilating your pupils; it also enables us to make detailed, full-color images that we can share with you and store for future reference.
ORA stands for Ocular Response Analyzer. This device allows us to perform corneal hysteresis measurement, a highly advanced form of tonometry, or pressure testing. By analyzing your corneas' degree of movement as they respond to energy, we can determine whether you are suffering from high intraocular pressure -- an indicator of possible glaucoma.
OCT stands for Ocular Coherence Tomography. This form of digital imaging can take cross-sectional pictures of your retinas, showing us your retinal tissue thickness. Thin spots, holes or other apparent abnormalities can help us identify conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration at a very early stage.
Our visual field testing machine can help us understand exactly how well your eyes are functioning. This viewfinder-equipped device lets us test your peripheral vision, optic nerve health, and function, helping us diagnose retinal problems and glaucoma-related vision loss.
Corneal topography is a technique for measuring the shape and curvature of your corneas in exacting detail. This technology creates a digital "map" of the corneal surface showing every little aberration or imperfection. We use corneal topography to help get a perfect fit for contact lenses, as well as the diagnosis of corneal injuries and diseases.
