Eye Diagnostic Testing Center in Houston
Our facility is equipped with the latest technology required to provide both routine and comprehensive medical –based eye care. Whether you have a pre-existing eye condition, or anything abnormal is uncovered during your comprehensive exam, our team of doctors can order, perform, and review your test results from the same comfortable environment you are already familiar with. If any additional intervention is required, our doctors partner with the top specialists in Houston.
This imaging system performs a scan of the inner components of the eye including the blood vessels, optic nerve, macula, and a wide-field view of the retina. Whether these images are obtained as part of your routine exam, or to document any known eye conditions, we are able to archive and review them for years to come, leading to earlier detection of any changes within the eye for better ocular health and treatment.
Optical Coherence Tomography – OCT
OCT is an advanced imaging technique used to create 3-dimensional images and models of various structures within the eye. This non-invasive technique uses simple light waves to produce cross-sectional views and provide measurements of the tissues within the retina. This technology is indispensable for conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, diabetes, and many more.
This is an instrument used to administer a series of tests designed to detect defects in all different areas of your vision (both central and peripheral). These tests are important in diagnosing and monitoring eye conditions such as glaucoma, but also for neurologic function in cases of stroke or brain tumor, and for monitoring patients taking medications that pose risk to their ocular health.
This instruments measures and maps the front surface of the eye (known as the cornea) which provides information about the curvature of the surface, which is important in fitting contact lenses. These measurements are also required to detect certain corneal structural abnormalities or diseases such as keratoconus, or pellucid marginal degeneration.
This device combines several technologies into one all-encompassing instrument used for the diagnosis of dry eye disease(s). Capabilities include an ocular surface interferometer, infrared imaging system, and a high-definition camera used to measure the thickness and stability of the tear film, produce images of the glands within the eyelids (which produce a portion of the tear film), and assess the quality of blinks that spread the tears across the eye.
