Technology

Brookside Optometric Group utilizes the most modern diagnostic equipment to serve your vision and eye health needs. Our cutting edge technology allows us to view the interior of your eyes to diagnose and manage eye diseases, determine candidacy for LASIK surgery, and maximize your exam experience with the latest advancements in care.

Optomap Retinal Scanner

The Optomap is a retinal imaging product that gives your doctor a thorough view of your retinas without the use of dilating drops. The retinal exam is crucial to detect and help manage retinal tears and detachment, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, melanoma of the eye, arterial plaques, and glaucoma. Optomap technology often replaces the need for dilation and displays the retinal image immediately, which allows your doctor to review it quickly.

Cirrus 600 OCT

Cirrus 600 OCT

The Cirrus 600 Ocular Coherence Tomographer (or OCT) is a state-of-the-art device that scans your retina and produces high resolution images of your retina without the use of radiation. The test takes just minutes to perform and the process is as simple as having your picture taken.

These high resolution images allow your doctor to detect and monitor glaucoma changes in your optic nerve, optic nerve swelling (papilledema), buried optic nerve head drusen, and optic neuritis, a common problem for people living with Multiple Sclerosis.

The OCT is also invaluable in detecting microscopic changes to your macula that can lead to permanent vision loss, including macular holes, macular pucker, preretinal membranes, macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, and macular edema. Your doctor may also use these scans to monitor the effects of diabetic retinopathy.

Atlas Topographer

The Atlas topographer gives your doctor a detailed map of the exact shape of the surface of your eye. This information is then used to help fit your contact lenses or determine if LASIK eye surgery is right for you. The Atlas topographer is also used to monitor your progress after LASIK surgery, and can detect vision distortions such as keratoconus.

Visual Field Testing

Visual field testing measures your entire scope of central and peripheral vision and detects blind spots, which can be a sign of eye disease. We utilize two different Zeiss Humphrey Visual Field Analyzers for testing. The Frequency Doubling Technology Field Screener (FDT) is a fast pattern recognition-testing device that quickly and accurately screens for peripheral vision issues. Should your doctor detect a problem, the next step is to use the full threshold visual perimeter to quantify the findings and aid in diagnosis.

Pachette Pachymeter

The Pachette pachymeter measures your central corneal thickness to determine intraocular pressure, the fluid pressure inside the eye, and is used to determine if you are a potential candidate for LASIK surgery. The test is as simple and comfortable as your routine glaucoma pressure check.
