Eye Exam Instrumentation
One of our newer instruments is a Zeiss Cirrus High Definition Ocular Coherence Tomograph or OCT. It is the latest technology for imaging the inside of the eye at the cellular level with a resolution of 5 microns. The newest update has added the ability to statistically compare for changes between past and present examinations.
We have also added the ability to scan areas in the front of the eye. We were the first office in Southern Utah to acquire this instrument. We continue to be at the forefront of technology and medical eye care for Southern Utah. We have designed our practice to allow us to review OCT data in our exam rooms with our patients. This helps to keep our patient's informed and is an integral part of your care. You get to see with the Doctor what is happening in your own eyes. This instrument is the premiere instrument for testing Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinal Disease, and in fact any macular abnormalities. It can now also test for corneal disorders, iris disorders, and Anterior Angle Abnormalities. It is fast, easy, painless and extremely helpful in taking care of patients' eye conditions.
