We’re dedicated to using the latest tools and technologies to ensure that your eyes remain healthy and see their best.
AUTO-REFRACTOR / KERATOMETER / TONOMETER
The auto-refractor emits an infrared light beam that is then reflected from the retina. Depending on the refraction the refractometer calculates an value for the optical power. This tell the doctor what power glasses or contact lenses you may need.
The keratometer is a diagnostic instrument designed to measure the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea, which is particularly useful for assessing the extent and axis of astigmatism.
The tono-pachymeter is designed to measure intraocular pressure. It does this by measuring your eye’s resistance to a puff of air. The machine then calculates your the pressure and determines if it’s too high which may put you at risk of glaucoma. The instrument also measures the thickness of your cornea (pachymetry) which is important for glaucoma monitoring.
3D OCT-1 MAESTRO
An OCT is a non-invasive test that uses light waves to image your retina in 3D. It creates topographical maps of the optic nerve, macula and surrounding retina. With an OCT we can not only see the surface of your retina but also we can see through all the many layers of the retina to check for disease.
This facilitates the observation of pathology at each layer of the retina. All this fancy talk means this machine can help in the diagnosis of various problems such as glaucoma, retinal vein occlusions, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration at their earliest stages. When deciding where to have your eyes examined, be sure to ask what technology is available. At Bronte Optometry we are up to date with all the modern equipment needed for a full comprehensive eye health exam.
TRC-NW8F PLUS MYD/NON-MYD RETINAL CAMERA
Modern comprehensive retinal examinations call for a number of different imaging procedures to document and determine the presence of retinal conditions that can affect your vision. That’s why at Bronte Optometry we’ve invested in this amazing retinal camera.
The FDT is a small, automated peripheral vision testing device. The patient simply presses a response button whenever he/she sees a test stimulus. This simple operating procedure, coupled with the instrument’s well-documented clinical performance, make it a natural choice to detect the effects of eye diseases on visual function.
This instrument can help detect various conditions such as glaucoma, degenerative and high myopia, non-glaucomatous optic nerve disease, and others.
