The Eye Laser and Diagnostic Unit is staffed by highly trained experts in laser vision and intraocular surgery equipped with the latest in vision laser correction. It offers the following services:
An ultrasonic modality used that determines intraocular lens power for implantation in cataract surgery.
Automated Visual Field Test (Perimetry)
A device used for investigating and quantifying visual field damage in disease states such as glaucoma and neuroophthalmologic disorders.
A safe, noninvasive, dynamic ultrasonic modality that provides images of the intraocular contents, particularly when opacification of the ocular media (e.g., cataract, intraocular hemorrhage) precludes adequate ophthalmoscopic examination.
A means of studying the posterior segment of the eye with the aid of fluorescein sodium dye; useful for studying the normal physiology of the retinal and choroidal circulations, as well as demonstrating disease processes affecting the macula.
A photographic documentation for serial analysis of optic nerve head damage; used in monitoring disease progression in glaucomatous eyes
A confocal laser scanning system used for acquisition and analysis of three-dimensional images of the posterior segment; used for the quantitative assessment of retinal and optic nerve head topography especially in diseases such as glaucoma
An ultrasonic tool used for measuring corneal thickness which is an indirect indication of the integrity of the corneal endothelium; a valuable adjunct in the assessment of eyes afflicted with glaucoma, and also for pre-LASIK screening
An instrument that automatically measures errors of refraction (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism)
The Eye Laser and Diagnostic Unit is located at the 2nd Floor Medical Office Building. For inquiries, please call (632) 771-9000 ext. 8203.
