Comprehensive State-of-the-Art Eye Examinations
Our comprehensive eye examinations evaluate your eyes, both inside and out, for any potential disorders or diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and appropriate treatment is prescribed – whether it’s medication, lenses or low vision rehabilitation.
TRS-5100 Refraction System
Technology is rapidly changing the eye care industry. We utilize the latest in diagnostic equipment and are committed to keeping up with whatever advances will come next. Using our new automated, computerized refracting system, we can determine the best prescription for you. The TRS-5100 replaces the standard refractor and allows Dr. Rebman and Dr. Zechman to control the refraction process through the keypad.
One of the beneficial aspects of the Marco TRS system is its ability to compare a patient’s vision three ways: (1) without corrective eye wear, (2) using an old prescription, or (3) using a patient’s new prescription, with a single touch of a button. This comparison helps the patient more readily accept a change in prescription, as they see their vision improve immediately.
Optomap Pan-retinal Ophthalmoscopy
The Optomap uses a low-power scanning laser to obtain an ultra-widefield digital image of the retina. With an Optomap image, up to 80% of the retina can be viewed without dilating drops. This allows Dr. Rebman and Dr. Zechman to confirm your eye is healthy or better detect diseases like macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, melanoma, etc. The Optomap creates a permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
This is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensing tissue lining the back of the eye. OCT is a sophisticated scanning system that produces highly detailed images of the retina and optic nerve. It is often likened to an MRI or x-ray of the eye. This scan allows Dr. Rebman and Dr. Zechman to see detailed images of the retina (the inner most layer of the interior eye) and optic nerve, enabling them to accurately detect and monitor changes to the retina and optic nerve. OCT is especially useful in monitoring and treating macular degeneration and glaucoma.
The corneal topographer measures the curvature and shape of the cornea found on the front surface of the eye. The data obtained creates a topographical map of the corneal surface. This test is helpful in diagnosing diseases or degenerations of the cornea like keratoconus. It may also be used to successfully fit contact lenses, monitor ortho-keratology, and determine if an individual is a good candidate for refractive surgery like LASIK.
