There are many types of eye tests to detect problems. Ophthalmologists have to find the problems before we can know what treatments will work best.
Photos: used to document the appearance, size, and location of eye structures in the front of the eye.
Corneal Topography: used to map the clarity, shape, curves, and thickness of the cornea.
Corneal OCT: used for in depth details of the structure of the cornea.
Endothelial Cell Count: used to measure the number, size, and shape of the cells that keep the cornea clear and compact.
Corneal Pachymetry: used to measure the thickness of the cornea.
Intraocular Lens (IOL) Measurements: used to determine the correct power of the lens inserted during cataract surgery.
Anterior segment UMB or OCT: used to examine the structures in the front of the eye when the cornea is not clear.
Photos: used to document the appearance, size, and location of structures in the back of the eye.
Retinal OCT: used for in depth details of the structure of the retina.
Flourescein Angiography: used to map the flow and leakage of blood in the vessels of the retina.
Optic Nerve Tests
Photos: used to document of appearance, size, and location of the optic nerve.
Optic Nerve OCT: used for in-depth details of the structure of the optic nerve.
Visual Field: used to map any problems with central or peripheral vision.
