Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imagi29ng technique for mapping the outer structure of the eye. It is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea. Corneal topography produces a detailed, visual description of the shape and power of the cornea. This type of analysis provides your doctor with very fine details regarding the condition of the corneal surface. These details are used to diagnose, monitor, and treat various eye conditions. They are also used for planning laser vision correction or fitting contact lenses.

A visual field est is a method of measuring an individual’s entire scope of vision, that is their central and peripheral (side) vision. Visual field testing actually maps the visual fields of each eye individually. It is very useful in finding early changes in the visual field caused by nerve damage from glaucoma.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non invasive emerging technology for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging. OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light instead of sound. This diagnostic test is used in order to measure retinal nerve fiber layer tissue as well as macula thickness which helps to study the progression of diseases such as glaucoma or macular conditions such as macular degeneration and edema. It helps with early detection, diagnosis and treatment guidance for these conditions.

Fundus photography is the creation of a photograph of the interior surface of the eye, including optic discmacula, and posterior pole. This is used by optometristsophthalmologists, and trained medical professionals for monitoring progression of a disease, diagnosis of a disease (combined with retinal angiography), or screening.

fluorescein angiography is a medical procedure in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the bloodstream. The dye highlights the blood vessels in the back of the eye so they can be photographed. It is used to examine the circulation of the retina and choroid using a fluorescent dye and a specialized camera.

The slit lamp is an instrument consisting of a high-intensity light source that can be focused to shine a thin slit of light into the eye. It is used in conjunction with a biomicroscope. The lamp facilitates an examination of the frontal and posterior segments of the human eye. The binocular slit-lamp examination provides a stereoscopic magnified view of the eye structures in detail, enabling anatomical diagnoses to be made for a variety of eye conditions. A second, hand-held lens is used to examine the retina. A special camera is also mounted on the slit lamp biomicroscope, allowing the physician to take a photograph of the structures of the eye as it is seen through the slit lamp.

Pachymetry is a simple, painless test to measure the thickness of your cornea — the clear window at the front of the eye. Pachymetry can help your diagnosis, because corneal thickness has the potential to influence eye pressure readings. With this measurement, your doctor can better understand your IOP reading and develop a treatment plan that is right for you. It is useful in screening for patients suspected of developing glaucoma.

It is also important to determine is you are a good candidate for LASIK.

ZEISS FORUM archive centrally stores DICOM examination data from multiple diagnostic instruments, making it a true ophthalmic Picture Archiving and Communication System. It stores the raw data of CirrusTM HD-OCT and visual field analyzer – Humphrey Field Analyzer as well as the Fundus camera – Visucam. The system not only enables the doctor to have access to all the examination data from any instrument but also to link the three diagnostic instruments and presents the results from different tests simultaneously.
