The first step in determining whether or not you have cataracts and which treatment choice can be best tailored to your vision is a cataract screening. The screening process takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and involves a series of computer-aided and traditional testing methods administered by a skilled technician to gather your eyes’ prescription, topography and overall health, followed by a thorough overview of treatment options and a meeting with one of our experienced ophthalmologists.
Without touching your eye, the WaveScan determines the unique topography of your eyes in order to create a “road map” for your personalized vision correction.
Your technician will measure your refractive error (basically your level of vision imperfection) using a computer-controlled machine called an autorefractor. This helps determine what treatment option will be best for you.
The glare test is used to assess visual function when looking at bright lights. While looking at an eye chart, lights are introduced that simulate the effect of bright sunlight or nighttime glare.
The Pentacam is basically a corneal camera. It takes thousands of pictures of your eye in just seconds that tell your doctor the distinct shape, structure and thickness of your cornea so that he or she can decide on your most safe and effective treatment option(s).
