In addition to our knowledgeable and empathetic staff, Eufaula Eye Associates has the latest technology available to make sure you get the correct diagnosis. Our facilities include ultrasounds, bio microscopes, and retinal imaging.
Our office also has instrumentation specifically designed to help diagnose and follow certain conditions, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye conditions and cataracts so an appropriate referral may be made if surgery is needed.
All of these features, in an office with a soothing, warm and friendly atmosphere. Your comfort is important to us, and Eufaula Eye Associates wants to make sure you feel welcome. Call or visit us today to set up your appointment!request an appointment
Hate that puff of air making that plunger sound when you need to get your eye pressure checked? No more! We now use the I-Care tonometer that makes it possible to check your eye pressure quickly and efficiently with no air, anesthetic drops, or calibration.Nice.
FDT VISUAL FIELDS
The FDT visual field testing instrument is designed for fast and effective detection of glaucomatous and other ocular and neurologic disorder visual field loss
HUMPHREY VISUAL FIELDS (HVF)
The HVF is a peripheral vision test that checks on the functioning of your peripheral (or side) vision.Different settings allow us to monitor glaucoma, macular degeneration, and even vision loss from strokes and brain tumors.So many things can affect your vision.This instrument helps us figure out what is going on and lets us measure for change over time to ensure we are saving your sight.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)
The OCT is a non-invasive camera that lets us look at the structure of the layers of your retina and thickness of your optic nerves. We use this testing for conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Your primary care doctor may also want us to check you if you are on certain high risk medications that can permanently affect your vision. This very cool technology is also used by NASA for space exploration!
Retinal cameras are typically used to conduct diabetic retinal exams, but they can also reveal symptoms of other conditions such as hypertensive retinopathy, retinal tears, papilledema and more, such as raised, swollen optic discs, retinal hemorrhages near the optic disc and twisted, swollen blood vessels. Retinal photography is also useful to properly monitor glaucomatous progression over time.
B-scan ultrasonography is a simple, noninvasive tool for diagnosing lesions of the posterior segment of the eyeball. Common conditions such as cataract, vitreous degeneration, retinal detachment, ocular trauma, choroidal melanoma, and retinoblastoma can be accurately evaluated with this modality.
Diopsys ERG tests use electroretinography technology to help us gain objective, functional information about the performance of the inner retinal cells of the eye, especially in the macula.
The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP test measures the strength and speed of the signal from the retina all the way to the visual cortex. The VEP technology in the Diopsys® NOVA device helps determine how your eyes communicate with your brain in a way that no other instrument or vision test can.
Corneal topography is a special photography technique that maps the surface of the clear, front window of the eye (the cornea). It works much like a 3D (three-dimensional) map of the world, that helps identify features like mountains and valleys.
EXTERNAL OCULAR PHOTOGRAPHY
External ocular photography is a non-invasive procedure used to photo-document conditions of the external structures of the eye (e.g., eyelids, lashes, sclera, conjunctiva, and cornea). External photography techniques may also be used to document conditions related to structures of the anterior segment of the eye. These would include the anterior chamber, iris, crystalline lens, and filtration angle.
Corneal pachymetry is a simple, quick, and painless examination used to measure the thickness of the cornea.It has different applications in daily clinical practice, such a complimentary examination in glaucoma, to determine potential refractive surgery or even to diagnose certain diseases of the cornea.
