The Spectralis provides high resolution ocular imaging of the retina, choiroid, cornea, and anterior chamber. The imaging capabilities include standard retina photography along with wide angle images, video angiography with both fluorescein and ICG dye, and sate of the art fundus autofluorescence imaging.  

Optos Ultra-Widefield Imaging

Optos introduced retinal imaging with ultra-widefield scanning laser technology to support practitioners diagnosing, analyzing, documenting and monitoring ocular pathology that may first present in the periphery, and otherwise may go undetected using traditional examination techniques and equipment. Several ultra-widefield high resolution imaging devices are available with simultaneous non-contact pole-to-periphery views of more than 80% or 200 degrees of the retina in a single capture.


Fundus Retinal Photography

A fundus camera or retinal camera is a specialized low power microscope with an attached camera designed for fundus photography, that is, creating a photograph of the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole (i.e. the fundus).

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

The OCT (Cirrus, Heidelberg, and ZEISS OCT-Angiography) is being used to diagnose and monitor optic nerve disorders by determining the degree of retinal ganglion cell-axonal loss resulting in thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer. Thinning is monitored most frequently in glaucoma, since there are a number of patients with early glaucoma who have normal visual field results, but pathologic thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer, compared to age-matched normals. The OCT works much like an ultrasound, except that it uses light rather than sound and thereby achieves ten times better resolution. A typical test takes less than 10 minutes making it possible for everyone to undergo a rigorous retinal screening without discomfort.
