There is always something new at Great Valley Eye! We are please to offer some new technology options to better care for your eyes and vision. This summer we added two new examination features to evaluate the anatomy and function of the internal eye.
First on the list is a new wavefront based scan of the retina, optic nerve and vitreous body. This instrument is called the Optovue. Is is a Optical Coherence Tomography scan that uses a special light to create a 3-D image of your sensitive ocular tissue. Using this device, the doctor can detect anatomical changes in these tissues that could lead to macular holes, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and a host of other problems that may threaten your vision in the future. People that note floaters, a common problem for anyone over age 50 can get this scan to better understand the risk of problems. For the remainder of 2016, the Optovue Wellness scan is offered a covered benefit of the routine eye examination.
We have also added the Octopus 600 visual field test. This replaces our older Octopus 301 device for visual field testing and evaluation. The new version offer Pulsar target technology to allow better detection of problems of retinal sensitivity.
We are happy to showcase our new technology for our routine patients and to use this to better care for our patients with glaucoma and other chronic eye problems. We can both detect problems earlier and provide for better vision outcomes with known pathology. Be sure to ask about these procedures at your next visit to our office.
