Icare tonometer

Icare® tonometer for quick, easy and painless eye pressure measurement by Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, & Emergency Departments – without anesthesia or air.

The Icare tonometer is based on a proven accurate measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary and gentle contact with the cornea. The measurement is barely noticed by the patient and often does not even cause corneal reflex. The device not only makes IOP measuring a more pleasant experience on all patients, it is also an important break-through for succeeding with non-compliant patients (i.e. children and dementia patients).

The easy usage and dynamic patient flow obtained by the Icare tonometer make it a very important instrument for eye care professionals.

Requiring no drops, nor specialized skills for its use the quick and painless Icare tonometer makes IOP measuring easy and has an important role in glaucoma screening programs of masses.

 

Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)

VEP measures the electrical activity in the vision system. When light from an image enters your eye, it is converted into electrical energy at the retina and travels through the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain which processes vision. The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP test measures the strength of the signal reaching your visual cortex and how fast it gets there.

The VEP technology in the Diopsys® NOVA device helps determine how your eyes communicate with your brain in a way that no other instrument or vision test can.

Eye Care Specialists may test patients six months of age and older for vision and optic nerve disorders such as glaucoma, multiple sclerosis (MS), and amblyopia. Patients may also be tested to detect neuro-visual problems caused by traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke.

 

OCT and Early Detection of Eye Health Problems

Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT as it is more commonly known is a sophisticated scanning system that produces highly detailed images of the retina. It is often likened to an MRI or x-ray of the eye.

This scan allows your optometrist to see detailed images of the retina (the inner most layer of the interior eye), enabling them to accurately detect, monitor and control changes to the retina. This procedure is currently the only one that shows in-depth images of the eyes internal structures. Other procedures only show the surface of these structures.

An OCT scan can detect the early signs of macular degeneration, glaucoma, detached retinas and other eye disorders. This procedure only takes minutes and the equipment never touches the eye, so there is no discomfort.

 

VISUAL FIELD TESTING

During a routine eye exam, some eye doctors may want to determine through visual field testing the full horizontal and vertical range of what you are able to see peripherally. This range is commonly referred to as “side vision.”

Visual field tests assess the potential presence of blind spots (scotomas), which could indicate eye diseases. A blind spot in the field of vision can be linked to a variety of specific eye diseases, depending on the size and shape of the scotoma.

Many eye and brain disorders can cause peripheral vision loss and visual field abnormalities.

For example, optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma creates a very specific visual field defect. Other eye problems associated with blind spots and other visual field defects include optic nerve damage (optic neuropathy) from disease or damage to the light-sensitive inner lining of the eye (retina).

Brain abnormalities such as those caused by strokes or tumors can affect the visual field. In fact, the location of the stroke or tumor in the brain can frequently be determined by the size, shape and site of the visual field defect.

 

FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHY

Fundus photography is an advanced digital retinal photograph. By taking a digital fundus photo image of the back portion of the eye (the retina), the doctor can detect and monitor ocular health. The screening picture that is produced captures a clear view of the optic nerve, blood vessels, macula and fovea.

Fundus photos can be a baseline measurement for future comparison. A look at the internal view of the eye can be key in detecting Glaucoma, Macular Deneration, Diabetic retinopathy, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Retinal detachments and many more eye issues detectable at very early stages.

 

I.TERMINAL® 2 BY ZEISS

Every face is different. Shouldn’t your new glasses be made precisely for yours?

Ideal vision can only be achieved if your lenses are customized for your physical characteristics and how your chosen frames position the lenses in front of your eyes.

Eyeglass lenses can perform to their full potential only after they have been precisely adjusted to the wearer.

Proper centration (the adjustment of the eyeglass lenses to the frame) is as important as an accurate prescription for optimal vision. Many things are taken into account, such as the distance between the eyes and pupils, the proportions of the face, the tilt and wrap of the frames, and even posture, to accurately position the lenses. Without these measurements, up to 40% of valuable visual acuity can be lost. This is especially important for progressive lenses, where all three vision zones (distance, intermediate, and near) have to be optimally adjusted so you can comfortably see through all three zones. A difference of a millimeter can be crucial to the quality of your vision.

Fast. Simple. Precise.

The new standard in centration measurement technology by ZEISS

In the past, opticians manually measured the distance between the eyes and position of the pupils by marking the lenses with a felt-tipped pen. Today, opticians can measure more precisely — to a precision of 1/10th of a millimeter. The i.Terminal 2 by ZEISS provides all of the data necessary to objectively create lenses for your unique features. Lenses that are precisely personalized for your face, frame, and prescription will provide you with:

Better fitting lenses

Optimum vision

Reduced eye strain

How you will benefit

Looking directly at a light source at night, such as car lights, results in glare and halo effects. i.Scription technology by ZEISS reduces image noise.

i.Scription technology by ZEISS adds more brilliance to your life and lets you see colors as they really are: bright and more intense.

Seeing contrast, such as white letters on a black background, is especially challenging for the eyes. i.Scription technology by ZEISS sharpens contrast.

Your ZEISS eye care professional can show you how the i.Scription technology works and how you can enjoy better vision — even at night — thanks to ZEISS precision eyeglass lenses.
