Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography, or ‘OCT’, is a technique to scan and measure the thickness of the retina as well as evaluate disorders of the optic nerve. OCT scans help with the early detection and treatment of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and damage to the optic nerve caused by glaucoma.
OCT scanning is effective, painless, quick, and non-invasive. A patient sits in front of the OCT machine and rests their head. The OCT begins a detailed scan of your eye without ever touching it. This thorough scanning is complete within 10 to 15 seconds. Afterward, the doctor will have the crucial information required to precisely diagnose and treat many conditions the patient may have.
Visual Field Analyzer
The ophthalmologists at Michigan Street Optical utilize the latest Humphrey Zeiss 745 Visual Field Analyzer to conduct visual field testing. Visual field tests are crucial for the detection and treatment of many chronic eye conditions, including glaucoma, vision related neurological abnormalities, and many more serious eye afflictions
Fundus photography involves the use of a digital retinal camera combined with a low powered microscope to photograph the posterior region of the eye. This detailed digital photography allows the doctor to diagnose and track the progress of many common eye disorders, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, and diabetic retinopathy.
