LaCroix Eye Care makes it a priority to invest in the latest breakthrough technologies in optometry.
Our office uses state-of-the-art equipment that helps us provide you with premium eye care. These tools help us to detect early signs of eye disease and allow our doctors to properly assess and monitor the health of your eyes. Here are a few of the tools that we use on a daily basis and recommend for a lot of our patients.
The retina is a thin layer of cells that covers 65% of the inner surface of the eye. And while standard eye exams allow the doctor to see a small portion of the retina, the Optomap Retinal Exam opens that window to reveal up to 85% of the retina, of which high resolution full-color images of the retina are produced for analysis. Because of this painless and quick exam, our optometrists are able to diagnose many eye diseases and conditions at their early stages. Results from the Optomap Retinal Exam can also reveal some forms of cancer.
Stratus OCT (by Zeiss)
The Stratus OCT Exam uses light to scan the structures in the back of the eye, producing a highly-detailed cross-sectional image of the back of the eye. Optometrists use this tool to detect changes in the eye caused by diseases like glaucoma, diabetes, or macular degeneration. It can also be used to identify subtle, less common retinal conditions. Similar to the Optomap, this exam is very quick, painless, and completely safe.
Because these technologies can help with early detection, our staff recommends having these exams done regularly. If you have questions about these exams or any of our other technologies, please contact us, and our staff will be happy to help answer any questions you may have.
