Advanced Eye Analysis
Preoperative OPD Wavefront analysis and Corneal Topography
The OPD is an advanced form of corneal topography which assesses the health of the eye structures responsible for your visual focus. It analyzes your whole visual system and measures possible distortion from dry eye or previous eye surgery or astigmatism. It can also evaluate which refractive lens implant might be best for your eye. After surgery, the OPD provides assistance in diagnosing problems with visual focus to aid in surgical enhancement.
Lenstar Optical Biometry
We are proud to offer our cataract patients eye measurement with Lenstar. Lenstar provides highly accurate laser optic measurements for every section of the eye − from the cornea to the retina. Measurements of patients eyes take only seconds and have the highest level of accuracy. The allows the lens implant to be customized to improve your vision at all distances.
Pentacam imaging of the anterior segment of the eye
The Pentacam supplies a detailed analysis of all eye structures in the anterior chamber, or front of the eye. This provides the surgeon with additional measurements to determine the true total corneal refractive power and corneal thickness. Also, by sending light through the pupil the Pentacam presents a precise snap shot of the natural lens and degree of the cataract. It can also be used as a tool for detection of corneal diseases such as keratoconus.
Advanced Intraocular Lens Calculations (especially for previous LASIK patients)
The standard measurements taken for the calculation of lens implants with cataract surgery are not accurate in patients who have had previous refractive surgery such as LASIK or PRK. At Eyes of York, we employ multiple advanced methods of lens implant calculations. Your surgeon will tailor your calculation based on any previous eye history data and use sophisticated new technology measurements adjusted with modern formulas. Finally, we use intraoperative wavefront technology called ORA Optiplus which will provide real time intraoperative measurements for lens implant accuracy selection during surgery.
OCT evaluation of the retina
The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the retina provides an extensive scan of the posteriorsegment, or back of the eye. This helps to rule out or identify possible abnormalities or diseases that are not visible during a standard dilated exam. Certain posterior segment diseases are incompatible with specific lens implant choices. The information provided by a retinal OCT is vital in deciding the proper refractive technology to maximize the personal best vision.
