Diagnostic Testing Q & A

What is a glaucoma diagnostic test?

The doctors use a glaucoma diagnostic test, known as OCT, or Optical Coherence Tomography, to determine the thickness of the nerve fiber layer around the optic disc.

It’s appropriate for patients suspected of developing glaucoma or those diagnosed with glaucoma. The doctor uses a reflection of laser light to directly determine the thickness of the nerve fiber layer and develop a 3-dimensional image of the optic nerve.

What is visual field analysis?

The Visual Field Analyzer helps determine if you have a peripheral or central visual field defect. This information indicates whether you have glaucoma, retinal problems, have had a stroke, or if you have a brain tumor.

What is fundus photography?

Fundus photographs display the appearance of the inside of the your eye, including the retina. The photographs show any changes that may be occurring in the optic nerve and damage to the retina potentially caused by glaucoma, as well as diabetic retinopathy or aging/pathologic changes.

What is a pachymeter?

The pachymeter helps determine the thickness of the cornea, assisting in the management of glaucoma, as well as other disorders that can result in vision loss. The test also helps the doctor know whether the cornea is strong enough for LASIK surgery.

What is gonioscopy?

A physician may use gonio photography to evaluate and manage patients with glaucoma or those at risk for the condition. It’s also helpful in determining the type of glaucoma from which a patient may be suffering.

What is fluorescein angiography?

The FA test provides information about the health of the back of the eye and retina. It helps the doctor to detect any circulation problems, swelling, or abnormal blood vessels in the eye. It’s usually recommended for people who have or are at risk for diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration.

What is selective laser trabeculoplasty?

The doctors use SLT to help lower intraocular eye pressure in patients that have glaucoma. This safe and painless laser treatment is usually recommended to patients for whom pressures cannot be controlled by eye drops alone.

What is Yag Laser Capsulotomy?

Occasionally, vision after cataract surgery may once again become cloudy. Doctors may recommend that patients who are having trouble with reading, driving, or other activities have the Yag Laser Capsulotomy performed. It’s a safe in-office procedure that opens a cloudy lens capsule.

What is the TearLab osmolarity test?

The TearLab test measures the salt content in your eyes and is the first objective and quantitative test for diagnosing and managing dry eye disease.

What is LipiView imaging?

LipiView imaging is state-of-the-art technology that captures pictures of glands along your eyelids. These images can help the doctors determine the origins of a dry eye condition and the quality of your blinking mechanism.
