We have already made our services more accessible with two locations (one in Tampa, FL, and another in New Port Richey, FL). We constantly refresh our inventory with top-of-the-line designer frames, keeping your style trendy and your vision crystal clear. Now, we are excited to announce another step forward for our clinic: the OCULUS Keratograph® 5.
A New Way to Treat Dry Eye Disease
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5 is a groundbreaking piece of imaging equipment that changes the way we diagnose and treat eye diseases. This brand new machine is among the latest advances in optometry, it is especially useful for testing, diagnosing and treating dry eye disease. It offers the following benefits over more complicated alternatives:
- Non-invasive way to take high resolution images
- Offers a wide variety of different tests and software analysis
- Gives patients more insight into their conditions and needs
What is the OCULUS Keratograph® 5?
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M integrates a high definition camera, keratometer, and corneal topographer into one seamless and state-of-the-art imaging machine. Surface eye diseases are no match for this precise and innovative tool, which integrates with computer technology to create detailed, full-color digital images of your eye.
If you have dry eye disease, we will use the round camera lens to examine your Meibomian glands (also called your tarsal glands). These glands produce the oil layer of your tear film, which keeps them from drying out and evaporating. The Keratograph allows us test the break-up time of your tear film, the height of your tear meniscus, and the condition of your eye's lipid layer.
What You Should Know
As a patient, you don't need to know the technical jargon that explains your specific eye condition. You just want solutions for your symptoms. However, the Keratograph helps us bridge the gap between patient and eye doctor. As we conduct your imaging tests during your consultation, we will show you the full-color images that we use to diagnose and treat your eyes.
Light-emitting diodes make it possible to create these highly complex images, while thousands of measuring points make our diagnoses more accurate and precise than ever. The Keratograph even relies on an infrared ring to prevent the involuntary secretions associated with bright lights and glares. Together, these tools work to create precise and useful records of the exact shape, size, function, and abnormalities of your eyes.
