At Signature Eye Care, we pride ourselves on using high-quality technology to maintain your eye health. The risk of developing glaucoma increases as we age, so we use various methods of tonometry to measure intraocular pressure and identify early signs of glaucoma.
The Icare Tonometer requires no anesthesia. The tool comes into contact gently with the cornea, measuring the intraocular pressure of the eye quickly and efficiently.
The Goldmann tonometer measures the force necessary to flatten the cornea, indicating the intraocular pressure. We will administer numbing eye drops for this procedure to minimize discomfort.
We use OCT scans which is kind of like an MRI of your eye that allows us to detect microscopic changes in the thickness of the nerve tissue in the back of the eye as one of the earliest signs of glaucoma.
We also use Automated Threshold Visual Field Testing to detect early peripheral vision loss and progression associated with glaucoma.
