Services, Treatments and Surgery

Our extensive range of In Office Procedures Include:

Eye Ultrasound: A-Scan and B-Scan Ultrasonography

Ultrasound, also referred to as echography, uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of the internal eye structures. It is a helpful diagnostic tool if cataracts, blood, or other conditions prevent a doctor from viewing inside of your eye with traditional methods. A-scan and B-scan ultrasound are helpful for diagnosing retinal detachment, vitreous bleeding, tumors, inflammation, lesions in the eye socket bone, or foreign bodies in the eye. A-scan ultrasound is used to take measurements for artificial lenses for cataract surgery. This quick and painless procedure can be performed in our office.

Intravitreal Injections (Injection in the Eye)

Intravitreal injection is an injection into the vitreous, which is the jelly-like substance inside the eye. It is performed to place medicines inside the eye, near the retina. The procedure is done at the office under local anesthesia. You may feel pressure, but not pain. Intravitreal drug delivery has become a popular method of treatment of many retinal diseases, commonly including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, and uveitis.

Indocyanine Green Angiography (ultra-widefield)

Indocyanine green (ICG) angiography is a high-speed photographic eye test that is used to detect blood circulation problems in the choroid. The choroid is a blood vessel layer located under the retina in the back of your eye. ICG can be helpful for gathering in-depth information about bleeding in the back of the eye and the functional status of the eye when standard examination and testing alone cannot isolate the problem. The test uses an injected dye and special cameras to take photos of the blood vessels. ICG is used to diagnose certain eye conditions, such as macular degeneration, or to determine if laser treatment is possible. ICG is a short procedure that is performed in our office.

Ophthalmic Lasers

Ophthalmology was the first medical specialty to use laser energy in patient treatment. Lasers use short bursts of high-energy light to destroy abnormal cells. Originally used to prevent a detached retina, ophthalmic lasers now are used to stop bleeding, cut tiny openings, and evaporate small amounts of tissue. Laser therapy is usually a short in-office procedure.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) - Eye Imaging Test

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology that allows for measurement of the thickness of the retina and visualization of the different retinal layers. The retina is located at the back of your eye. OCT takes cross-sectional pictures of the retina. It a fast non-contact and non-invasive procedure. OCT is used to diagnose certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and macular puckers, macular edema, and macular holes.

Ultra-Widefield Fluorescein Angiography

Fluorescein angiography is a specialized type of photographic eye test that is used to detect blood circulation problems, swelling, leaking, or abnormal blood vessels in the retina and choroid, structures that are located in the back of your eyes. The test uses an injected dye and a special camera to take photos of vascular structures. It is used to diagnose certain eye conditions, including retinopathies and macular degeneration. Fluorescein angiography is a simple and short test that is performed in our office. Click here to learn more about Fluorescein and Indocyanine angiography

Ultra-Widefield Fundus Photography

Fundus photography is a specialized medical imaging test used to take pictures of the structures located at the back of the eye, including the retina. It produces a series of photos that are helpful for diagnosing, documenting, and monitoring certain eye conditions. Fundus photography is a short painless procedure that is performed in our office.

Visual Field Testing

Visual field testing is used to detect visual field loss. Visual field loss may result from disorders or diseases of the eye, optic nerve, or brain. A common method of visual field testing involves having you focus at a point while flashes of light are displayed on a screen. You push a button whenever you see a flash of light and a computer maps a record of your responses. Your doctor can review the results to determine the extent of your visual field.
