State-Of-The-Art Testing

eye doctor with ophthalmoscope

Today’s technology has revolutionized eye care. Our in-office technology makes even the most difficult cases easier to diagnose and treat accurately. Having the technology here in our Ft. Lauderdale office makes it convenient for our patients to be evaluated by the doctors and staff members they trust. Each of our technical staff members is highly trained to ensure the most consistent and reliable diagnostic evaluations.

For further information on any of the above technologies or those listed below, please click on the links.

  • OCT is a very powerful tool that helps us do more than ever before to protect patient’s vision, especially in vision threatening problems like Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma. It is the first and only instrument that can “see” below the surface of the retina to examine the retinal layers.
  • The Epic Refracting System utilizes electronic lenses and wavefront technology to achieve the optimal correction for your eyes, while minimizing your effort on those sometimes confusing “better #1 or #2” questions.
  • This is a unique test that evaluates the intricate blood flow system of the eye and is helpful in the management and detection of glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal disorders.
  • When having cataract surgery you want the most precise measurements possible in determining the power of your Intra-ocular Lens Implant (IOL).   The Haag-Steit’s Lenstar instruments helps ensure the best surgical outcomes.
  • Corneal topography is a valuable instrument used to capture a 3-D image of the cornea.  This information is used to diagnose many diseases, to make fitting the most complex contact lens patients easier and is essentional in testing for Lasik surgey.
  • Photo documentation of such diseases as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration is essential in their management.
  • Fluorescein angiography is useful in diagnosing, monitoring changes and treating such diseases as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and hypertensive retinopathy
  • A-scans are used to determine the size and ultrasound characteristics of masses in the eye or to measure the length of the eye.  B-Scan's are most useful when direct visualization of intraocular structures is difficult or impossible, such as a cataract.
  • This test helps to know that vision improvement is possible prior to any surgical treatment such as cataract surgery or a corneal transplant. The goal is to prevent unnecessary procedures, surgical risks, and disappointing postoperative visual acuity.
  • Originally developed for use at the Mayo Clinic, this test accurately measures your blood pressure six times during a ten minute interval.
  • This test is essential in diagnosing, and monitoring the treatment in patients with glaucoma as well as other neurological and medical diseases.
  • Using a special microscope the endothelial cells are counted and evaluated before cataract surgery or in specific types of corneal diseases.
  • Is used to measure the thickness of the cornea
