Studies

Retinal angiography

Fluorescein angiography is a method your ophthalmologist uses in which, using a special camera, he or she takes pictures of your retina. These images help your ophthalmologist get a better view of the blood vessels and other structures in the back of the eye.

Retinal tomography

OCT (optical coherence tomography) is one of the most important complementary tests in the exploration of the retina. Using an infrared light emitter and taking advantage of a complex optical principle (interferometry), it allows obtaining images of the retina and the optic nerve with very high resolution (similar to that obtained in microscopic sections of the same). It allows knowing the thickness of the center of the retina (measured in microns) and of the different layers of the retina with high precision.

Optic nerve tomography

It is a non-invasive Tomography study that takes photographs of histological sections of the Retina, specifically the macula (structure where the clearest image is formed), visualizing and analyzing each of the layers, detecting different diseases.

OCT-SA

Optical tomography of the anterior segment (OCT-SA) is a static imaging modality, without the need for contact with the eyeball, which provides quantitative and qualitative information on the cornea, the anterior chamber (AC), the angle of the AC, the iris and the lens. It offers different sections of the eyeball.

Retinal angiotomography

Ocular angiography with contrast consists of injecting a water-soluble dye substance called sodium fluorescein through the vein and, through a photographic camera, it is visualized in real-time and images are taken of the state of the circulation of the retinal vessels and other aspects. of sight

Retinal autofluorescence

Autofluorescence is a technique that allows us to visualize in great detail the metabolic changes that occur in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), a fundamental layer for the good health of photoreceptor cells.

Fundus photography

The eye fundus examination allows detecting alterations of the retina and the optic nerve and diagnosing, among others, the following disorders: Retinal detachment: occurs when the retina separates due, for example, to a tear.

Vision test

An eye exam involves a series of tests to assess your vision and detect eye disease. Your ophthalmologist may use a variety of instruments, shine bright lights directly into your eyes, and have you look through a variety of lenses. Each test during an eye exam assesses a different aspect of your vision or eye health.

Intraocular pressure measurement

As part of a complete eye exam, the ophthalmologist will take the intraocular pressure. This pressure measurement is known as tonometry.

In the past, you may have had your intraocular pressure measured using an air puff. Now, most ophthalmologists use a more accurate device that measures pressure by direct contact with the eye.

Gonioscopy

This diagnostic test helps determine if the angle where the iris meets the cornea is open and wide or narrow and closed. During the exam, eye drops are used to numb the eye. A wearable contact lens is gently placed on the eye.

Fundus examination under pupillary dilation

A dilated eye exam also allows your doctor to see if there has been any damage to the optic nerve, which occurs when a person has glaucoma. After this test, your near vision may be blurry for a few hours.

Removal of ocular foreign bodies

It is known as a corneal foreign body when something sticks to your cornea. The cornea is the transparent outer membrane that covers the eye. The foreign body can scratch (scratch) the cornea and cause symptoms

Pachymetry

It is a simple and painless test that measures the thickness of the cornea (the clear window at the front of the eye). A probe called a pachymeter is gently placed on the front part of the eye (the cornea) to measure its thickness.

Contrast sensitivity study

The contrast sensitivity test evaluates the ability of the visual system to discriminate an object from the background in which it is located.

Glasses graduate

Diopter is how the unit is known (in positive or negative values) that is used to measure the power of lenses, and prescription of people. The scale goes from 0.25 to 0.25 and the graduation can be negative (diverging lenses: myopia) or positive (converging lenses: hyperopia or presbyopia).

Ocular surface examination

The ophthalmological examination of the ocular surface consists of three parts: palpebral examination, state of the tear and characteristics of the ocular surface.
