Eye Care Technology at Boise Mountain Eyecare
At Boise Mountain Eyecare, we understand the importance of accurate, thorough diagnostics in eye care. Whether you show symptoms of vision loss or you just need an annual eye exam, your eye doctor cannot treat you properly or detect certain diseases without a clear picture of your eyes to see what’s going on.
At our state-of-the-art Boise optometry center, we use cutting-edge technology to learn more about our patients’ eye care needs and determine the best course of treatment. Here are some of the devices and testing systems that our optometrists use:
Optos Retinal Imaging Daytona
Daytona is the original Optos innovation, and today’s version is lighter and produces higher-resolution images than ever before. Our eye doctors use Daytona to perform ultra-widefield retinal imaging, a relatively new technology that makes it easier to monitor and manage eye disease.
How does Daytona improve our treatments? It uses color and light to provide a clearer, more detailed image of your entire retina, including the periphery, where signs of pathology often show up.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyser (HFA)
If your Boise optometrist needs to test your vision or screen for glaucoma, neurological conditions, or other retinal conditions, you will probably take an Analyser test. A popular vision testing tool, the Humphrey Analyser can be modified to test for a variety of different eye diseases and conditions.
Diopsys Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) and Electroretinography (ERG) Vision Testing
If you need comprehensive vision testing, Diopsys will probably play a role in your eye care regimen. Our Diopsys technology includes VEP and ERG vision tests, which are both non-invasive and painless ways to learn more about your vision.
VEP technology allows us to evaluate the speed and strength of visual signals within your eye, while ERG testing measures the retina specifically, recording electrical impulses in this light-sensitive layer. During your testing, you will cover one eye at a time as patterns flash across a computer screen and your optometrist gives instructions.
ZEISS CIRRUS Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
ZEISS is the company that first made OCT an eye care standard. Today, ZEISS is still improving clinical assessment with updates to their CIRRUS imaging systems. OCT is an imaging technique that uses two different ultra-close light sources to measure the eye tissue, like an ultrasound but without the use of sound waves.
Our ZEISS CIRRUS systems make it possible for our eye doctors to generate three-dimensional visualizations of your eye. In fact, ZEISS offers the only retinal OCT options with anterior chamber imaging, a less intrusive technique for detecting glaucoma, retinopathy, and other conditions.
