Retinal Imaging

Ophthalmic Digital Imaging

Our computer assisted digital imaging system enables us to provide a more thorough record of the health of your eyes.

Digital imaging can assist us in early detection of deteriorating ocular conditions including central retinal diseases, central detachments, holes, thinning, optic nerve disease, precancerous lesions, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy and diabetic retinopathy.

The Nidek ultra-high resolution retinal camera allows for an advanced diagnostic analysis of your ocular health. This noninvasive imaging device provides detailed and comprehensive documentation and allows us to store these images to compare with the results of future tests, so that a complete ocular health history can be generated. Minute changes become apparent that we may not been able to identify without these tests.

We strongly recommend ALL of our patients receive this test. It is especially important for those patients who have, or have a relative with high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal problems, headaches, floaters, flashing streaks, a strong prescription for glasses, diminishing vision, macular degeneration, cataracts or taking medications.

Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging

The Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) enables us to provide a more thorough record of the health of your eyes.

An OCT permits us to observe the condition of your retina by taking a cross sectional image through the eye similar to an MRI scan. This layer-by-layer investigation assists in early detection of ocular conditions including central retinal diseases, central detachments, holes, thinning, optic nerve disease, precancerous lesions, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

We also store and compare the results of future tests so that a complete ocular health history can be generated. Minute changes that may not have been apparent are readily identified with these tests. This is especially important for those patients who have a personal or family history of high blood pressure, retinal problems, headaches, floaters, flashing light streaks, a strong prescriptions for glasses, diminishing vision, macular degeneration, cataracts or are taking certain medications.

An OCT detects eye diseases that can threaten vision before symptoms become apparent in a conventional eye examination. With an OCT, your doctor has one of the most accurate and trusted diagnostic instruments available.

What is it?

Blepharitis is a common and persistent inflammation of the eyelids. There are several types of blepharitis, most of which are caused by bacterial infections. Allergies, toxins or viral infection can also lead to its development.


Commonly, your eyelid margins are red, with scales and flakes apparent at the base of the lashes. There may be irritation of the sensation of a foreign body in your eye, with redness, burning and itching of the eyelid margin. On awakening in the morning, your eyelids may feel sticky with crusted scales and debris caused by an oily discharge from the eyelid glands. Untreated, these glands may become plugged and infected, potentially leading to recurrent styes, dry eye syndrome and a loss of lashes.


Common symptoms of blepharitis are:

  • Itching or scratchy eyes
  • Foreign body sensation
  • Tearing
  • Crusting
  • Redness/inflammation
  • Mattering
  • Dry eyes
  • Eye rubbing

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms contact your eye care professional for more information on how you can treat blepharitis. We are now offering a treatment called BlephEx.

What is BlephEx?

BlephEx is an in-office procedure performed directly by your eye care provider. With this procedure your doctor can now take an active role in treating blepharitis instead of simply relying on your ability to perform semi-effective home lid scrubs.

How is BlephEx different?

The doctor thoroughly and precisely eliminates the scurf and bacterial debris that builds up along the lid margin, the main causes of inflammatory lid disease.


Tear osmolarity

The New Standard for Diagnosing Dry Eye Disease

This hand-held device called the i-Pen®, is the world’s first, point-of-care, electronic diagnostic device to detect and indirectly measure the tear film osmolarity levels associated with stages of Dry Eye Disease (mild, moderate and severe).

Some of the many benefits the i-pen provides us with includes:

  • Quantitative measurement of osmolarity
  • Quick and simple point-of-care test
  • Reproducible, accurate and reliable results
  • Uses Single-Use-Sensors

How does the Tear Film Osmolarity Work?

The i-Pen® Osmolarity System is a solid state electronic diagnostic device for the quantitative measurement of osmolarity (the concentration of dissolved salts in solution) of human tears in normal and Dry Eye Disease patients.

The i-Pen® Osmolarity system, used in conjunction with the i-Pen® Osmolarity Single Use Sensors (SUS), provides a quick and simple method for determining tear osmolarity of the tissues bathed in the tear film of the orbital tissues such as the papabral conjuntiva. After several seconds of contact with the eyelid tissue, the i-Pen® will display a quantitative tear osmolarity test result on the liquid crystal display (LCD) in units of mOsms/L. No calculations required. The i-Pen® Osmolarity Test utilizes an impedance measurement to provide an indirect assessment of osmolarity of the tear film of the eye.

The i-Pen® is designed for use as an in-practice screening device both for patients presenting with dry eye symptoms and for all pre and post-surgical patients. In addition, the i-Pen® is an invaluable asset for monitoring the progress of dry eye treatment therapies.
