OUR EYE CARE TECHNOLOGY
SMART SELECTA DUET
Smart Selecta Duet is used for Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), an in-office procedure that reduces intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma.
The Smart Selecta Duet offers patients a safe and effective treatment. Lumenis SLT core technology puts into practice two decades of professional research and industry experience, clinically proven for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma, backed by hundreds of studies. System safety measures and a built-in energy indicator ensure accurate energy delivery throughout every treatment.
SLT has been used since 1995 and has proven its efficiency. SLT can lower eye pressure by 20 to 30% on average. The laser is successful in about 80% of patients. The treatment effect may last 3 to 5 years and SLT can be repeated when the original effect diminishes.
TearCare is used in applications to eye conditions such as Dry Eye due to Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). MGD is a blockage of the meibomian glands, located at the base of your eyelashes. MGD is a common eye condition but many people do not notice they have it.
The tiny meibomian glands inside the eyelid create an oil named meibum. This oil, water, and mucus all together create tears, which keep your eyes moist. Meibum keeps the water layer on the eye surface from drying quickly. TearCare utilizes smart technology to apply thermal energy (heat) to the eyelids while allowing the eyelids to blink naturally.
TOMEY SPECULAR MICROSCOPE EM-4000
Tomey specular microscope em-4000 is used to do corneal endothelium analysis. The corneal endothelium is a monolayer of 350,000 to 500,000 specialized cells that cover the posterior surface of the cornea. The primary physiological function of the corneal endothelium is to maintain the health and transparency of the corneal stroma.
Specular microscopy is a noninvasive photographic technique that allows you to visualize and analyze the corneal endothelium. Using computer-assisted morphometry, modern specular microscopes analyze the size, shape and population of the endothelial cells. The instrument projects light onto the cornea and captures the image that is reflected from the optical interface between the corneal endothelium and the aqueous humor. The reflected image is analyzed by the instrument and displayed as a specular photomicrograph. In clinical practice, specular microscopy is the most accurate way to examine the corneal endothelium.
FULL FIELD RETINAL SCAN
Optomap full-field retinal scan takes a panoramic image of the inside of the eye. It can capture up to 80% of the retina without the use of dilating eye drops. This is significantly more than traditional retina cameras, which only capture 15% of the retina even with dilation. The Optomap full-field retinal scan allows us to see any small hemorrhages in the periphery of the eye. These are a hallmark of diabetes eye diseases.
MACULOGIX ADAPT DX PRO
We invested in Maculogix’ Adapt DX Pro to test patients for Age-related Maculare Degeneration (AMD). With 20 years of clinical research behind it, this non-invasive device is one of the most accurate tools to detect early signs of AMD. It automatically aligns with the eye to capture an accurate measurement of dark adaptation speed. Dark adaptation is the automatic adjustment of the eye from bright light to low light, involving reflex dilation of the pupil. Dark adaptation speed is a key metric to diagnose early signs of AMD because the healthy eye adapts relatively quickly from bright light to darkness while the process can be very slow in the eyes with AMD.
Routine tests with Maculogix’ Adapt DX take about 5 min (compared to around an hour or more with other devices).
MISIGHT SOFT MULTIFOCAL CONTACT LENSES
MiSight Multifocal Contact Lenses Multifocal contact lenses are soft contact lenses with multiple prescriptions all in one lens. They provide constant distance and nearsighted correction. In the case of myopic control, these specialty lenses are composed of concentric rings, providing clear vision
and areas of defocus to alleviate the stress on the axial length.
Multifocal contact lenses for myopic children are a great way to slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness). Studies have found that this kind of contact lens with a center-distance design is able to slow the development of myopia as well as the elongation of the eye (axial length, which is a core problem of myopia).
