Humphrey Automated Visual Field
• The Gold Standard in Perimetry
• Provides information regarding the location of many diseases
• Assesses the full horizontal and vertical range of your vision
• Can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision
• Helps to detect and monitor glaucoma
• Measures the area of vision, or how wide of an area your eye can see
• Patient friendly
Your peripheral vision, or side vision, is very important for your visual function, and is also affected by many eye conditions. Many times, subtle changes in your peripheral vision are not noticed. The Humphrey Automated Visual Field allows us to detect any vision loss that you may not have noticed otherwise. This is important for conditions such as Glaucoma, retinal detachments, optic neuritis, retinal blood vessel blockage, brain tumors, ptosis (lid lag), auto-immune conditions like lupus, and many others.

Sitting in front of a concave dome, a computer-driven program flashes small lights at different locations within the dome's surface, and you press a button when you see the small lights in your peripheral vision. Your responses are compared to age-matched controls to determine the presence of defects within the visual field. The test will detect any loss of peripheral vision and provide a map of that loss which will be helpful in diagnosing the cause.
Nidek Speedy K Autorefractor / Keratometer
• Advanced Engineering
• Superior patient comfort
• Rapid acquisition of data
• Easy alignment and focusing
• Simultaneous refraction & kerotometry measurements
• Instant readings once alignment and focus is achieved
• A non-invasive procedure
Nidek's Speedy K Autorefractor / Keratometer has advanced engineering and unique technology that make the Speedy autorefractors the most accurate autorefractors available. It's acquisition of data optimizes measurements and reduces testing time. The medical Retro-Illumination mode allows the lens to be observed, and media opacities illuminated and identified.

Readings are initiated the instant that alignment and focus is achieved and measurements are terminated automatically when complete. Measurements are taken in a fraction of a second.. Perfect for children and patients who require rapid measurement acquisition.
DHS Ultrasound Pachmate Hand held Pachymeter
• Advanced Engineering
• Superior patient comfort
• Accurate, reproducible pachymetry measurements
• Automatic reports
• Takes 25 corneal measurements
• A non-invasive procedure
When diagnosing various eye problems, including glaucoma, Ultrasound Pachymetry allows us to better prescribe your course of treatment. When measuring the pressure of the eye for glaucoma, many measurements are inaccurate because the cornea, is thicker or thinner than normal.
• Pachymetry, or the measurement of the thickness of the cornea is an integral part of the Glaucoma examination.
• Thin corneas alone, regardless of the eye pressure, have also been found much more often in people with glaucoma.
