Eye Surface Profiler (ESP) — Scleral Lens Technology
The only Eye Care Clinic in Pittsburgh to have this technology, which maps out over 500,000 points on your eye to help us design the perfect scleral lens for you.
OCT iWellness Exam and Retinal Photography
We are excited to offer the latest technology in early detection of retinal and optic nerve diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic changes, macular degeneration, and inflammation. The earlier we can detect and monitor pathology, the more likely we can prevent future vision loss.
The OCT iWellness Exam is a quick, non-invasive scan that allows the doctor to see beneath the surface of the retina. These retinal photos are invaluable in detecting vision-threatening and systemic diseases in their very early stages — when they are most treatable. These photos also help in ensuring that we have baseline information about your eye, so that we can easily detect change over time.
OCULUS Keratograph 5M Topography and Dry Eye Evaluation
The OCULUS Keratograph 5M accesses thousands of measuring points in order to evaluate the surface of the cornea. This allows the doctor to produce the most accurate assessment of your eye health.
This multipurpose instrument uses topography, photography, and other imaging to help identify ocular conditions — such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, corneal ectasias, pre- and post-surgical corneal measurements. This technology can also diagnose and guide treatment for dry eye disease and ocular surface disease, including meibography. Meibomian gland dysfunction is the most common cause of dry eye.
