Virginia Eyecare Clinic offers a full range of services to help our clients see their best. Your eyes can be an indicator of your overall health and annual exams are a way to ensure the health of your eyes as well as to provide information about other health issues you may be experiencing. We offer complete comprehensive exams to check all aspects of your eye health. Contact lens exams, diabetic exams, glaucoma evaluation and treatment and macular degeneration evaluation and treatment are among the additional services we offer.
Specialized testing is also available on-site using our state of the art diagnostic equipment. Among the testing available is as follows:
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test using light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing us to map and measure their thickness. It evaluates the nerves in the eye that extend back to the brain and gives us important information related to Glaucoma, Multiple Sclerosis, tumors, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetic eye changes, cardiovascular diseases and more.
Non-Contact Tonometry (NCT) is another test we use to measure the pressure inside your eye, commonly known as intraocular pressure. Using a small puff of air, it is non-invasive and pain free. Many people simply refer to it as the "air puff test” and its common use is in helping to detect glaucoma. The pressure inside the eye is an important measure of ocular health.
Visual Field (VF) testing allows us to detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, or neurological issues.
Fundus Photos allow us to take a photo of the back of your eye which gives us insight to the health of the central and peripheral retina, optic disc and macula.
Retinal/External Photography. A photographic view of the eye allows the optometrist to have a snapshot of the health of your eye at the moment it is taken. The photo imagery is helpful in nearly any eye condition as it allows the optometrist to follow conditions, both inside and outside your eye over time.
Each of these tests can provide us with information necessary to evaluate and treat any eye issues you may be experiencing.
