GLAUCOMA TESTING

Dr. Priya uses advanced technologies for the early detection of Glaucoma and provides excellent pre & post-operative care

Glaucoma is a condition that targets the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain, caused by high pressure inside the eye. As Glaucoma is a progressively degenerative condition, prevention is better than cure. If you do notice vision loss, blurry vision and halos around lights, and maybe experience nausea and vomiting, you need to be tested for Glaucoma. Early detection, regular testing and medical care are essential steps in the treatment of Glaucoma. Dr. Priya uses advanced testing using latest technologies such as an OCT is critical for retinal assessment for Cataracts, retinal disease, anterior segment imaging for corneal disease and Glaucoma.

ADVANCED TESTING LAB
RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY
The Optomap, is state-of-the-art testing device that provides a set of enhanced ultra-widefield digital retinal images of your retina, within a few minutes. This screening method which entails getting high-resolution digital images of the inside of the eye, captures an image of more than 80% of your retina, and is especially important for individuals with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, or strong glasses prescriptions due to higher risk of retinal disorders such as Glaucoma.
Visual Field Testing
Visual field testing tests for horizontal and vertical range of peripheral vision. The test helps analyze the presence of potential blind spots which may be symptoms for a host of conditions ranging from eye diseases to brain disorders. For instance, Glaucoma-induced optic nerve damage is associated with a specific visual field defect. On the other hand, brain abnormalities such as those caused by tumors can be detected by a visual field test. Hence, this test s a critical test in the care regimen.
Optical Coherence Tomography Scans
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique uses light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural tissues of the back of the eye. A noninvasive, painless test, it works using light without radiation and is similar to a CT scan of the eye. And is essential for early diagnosis of Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic retinal disease and conditions such as retinal detachment.
OCULUS Keratograph for Dry Eye Testing
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M is an advanced non-invasive device for corneal topography and dry eye analysis. It is a corneal topographer with a built-in real keratometer and a color camera optimized for external imaging providing high-definition color images and video of the eye. It helps examine the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluates the lipid layer.
