Moses Eyecare offers this amazing technology that lets us more thoroughly evaluate the back surface of your eye. With this photo, we can detect glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure, and many other ocular diseases. More importantly, we can compare these photos from visit to visit to monitor change. Patients really appreciate this technology because the doctors at Moses Eyecare take the time to explain the photo of their very own eye!
Anterior Segment Photography
While most photography is centered on the retina, or the tissue in the back of the eye, Moses Eyecare also focuses on the front surface of the eye called the cornea and other outer structures.
These photographs can help monitor healing in corneal abrasions, dry eye, allergies, corneal degenerations, and much more. Not only is it a wonderful tool for the doctors, it allows you, the patient, to see first hand what the doctor sees!
These special machines are used in the treatment and diagnosis of the optic nerve and its surrounding tissue.
They help to detect subtle changes that might otherwise go unnoticed especially in glaucoma management.
Often, these machines can detect thinning in the nerve fiber layer before vision is lost making it a standard procedure for any glaucoma patient at Moses Eyecare Centers.
The visual field is used to test peripheral and central vision. Many eye and brain disorders can cause visual field abnormalities. For example, optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma creates a very specific visual field defect.
Other vision problems associated with blind spots developing within the visual field include optic nerve damage from disease or toxic exposure or damage to the inner lining of the eye (retina). It also can monitor any visual loss caused by certain medications.
Corneal topography or corneal mapping is a noninvasive, 3D imaging technique for determining the topology of the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.
This can be important in eye diseases like keratoconus or the fitting of contact lenses.It is also useful for pre and postoperative LASIK patients to monitor healing. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.
