Routine eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. At Cochrane Family Vision, we take great pride in ensuring that all doctors and staff members are at the forefront of the latest technology and techniques available in the world of eyecare. Our goal is to provide you with the very best knowledge, skills, and care available. Your optometrist will personally review and explain all imaging and test results with you during your examination. Your eye health is important to us!
Digital Retinal Photography
Digital Retinal Photography allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye using a high-resolution digital photo of your retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures to monitor for eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy. A retinal photo is used to assess and document the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eye health in future eye exams.
We offer the Optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. It is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. The Optomap® provides:
- A view of 82% of your retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease. This image facilitates early detection of various retinal concerns such as diabetes, cardiovascular concerns, retinal tears or holes, cancer and many others.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap® image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images at each visit to look for changes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. This allows your optometrist to map and measure the thickness of each of the retinal layers. It is used to assist in diagnosis and treatment decisions for many optic nerve and retinal conditions, including glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Threshold Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures how much ‘side’ or peripheral vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Once positioned in the machine, you will see lights of varying intensity in your peripheral vision and are asked to press a button whenever you see the light. This test is used to detect such conditions as glaucoma as well as any neurological or vascular concerns that can affect your vision or general health.
