Eye Exam at The Eye Center Greenbrier Valley

Technology, Testing & Evaluation

The Eye Center of Greenbrier Valley utilizes state of the art technological instruments to offer you the finest comprehensive eye care available. Many eye conditions, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, are most thoroughly evaluated with digital testing that provides the highest possible sensitivity. When a physician determines that further testing is needed, those services are frequently offered the same day.

Complete Care In Our Office

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) utilizes a non-contact scanning laser that is able to microscopically evaluate the optic nerve head and the macula. OCT images aid in identification and determining progression of glaucoma. Retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness analysis is important in assessing the damage from early glaucoma, as the RNFL has been shown to become thinner before other changes from glaucoma become evident. Macular edema, swelling of the central vision area, from diabetes or other eye conditions is also easily identified with the OCT. 
  • Anterior and Posterior Segment Photography is useful for the documentation of many eye conditions for later comparison. The camera has infrared imaging capabilities that provide better visualization of subretinal structures, such as choroidal nevi or new choroidal blood vessel growth. 
  • Cornea Topography aids in the identification of various corneal diseases, including keratoconus. The topographer measures the contour of the cornea using a scanning laser. 
  •  Pachymetry is used to measure the thickness of the cornea, which is an important factor for individuals who are considered glaucoma suspects, or that have been diagnosed with glaucoma. 
  • Visual Field Testing is also an important testing method used in those individuals who are considered glaucoma suspects or that have been diagnosed with glaucoma. The visual field test can also identify lesions behind the eye that may affect the brain. 
  • We use an Argon Laser which treats Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinal Holes, Retinal Detachments, and Glaucoma.
  • We also use a YAG Laser in the treatment of posterior capsular opacification (secondary cataracts) and the lysis of adhesions in the eye.
