We Now Have the Eye Cam

“EyeCam” Technology aides Dr. Johnson in the detection and management of glaucoma, “the silent sight stealer”, as well as documentation of external eye conditions.

The “EyeCam” allows Dr. Johnson a direct digital view of the Angle Structures to help determine if a patient may have “Open” or “Closed” Angle glaucoma or if they may be a glaucoma suspect.

The images acquired can also be sent via email for consultation to experts for second opinions.

Dr. Johnson is the first Optometrist in California to bring this advanced technology to his family of patients.

 

Diopsys®  NOVA-VEP

 
NEW VISION TEST HELPS DOCTORS DETECT VISION DISORDERS INCLUDING GLAUCOMA
Device also Helps Track Disease Progression
 
SAN RAMON, CA., September 12, 2013 – The Optometric Center & Eyewear Galleria announces the addition of the Diopsys® NOVA-VEP Vision Testing System to the practice. The new vision testing system helps eye care professionals detect vision deficits, including glaucoma and other neuro-visual disorders. 
 
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, reports the World Health Organization. According to Prevent Blindness America, glaucoma is often called the "sneak thief of sight" because half of all patients who have it do not know it. Many optic nerve disorders are asymptomatic since central vision may not be affected until later stages of the disease. Also, diagnosis and management of optic nerve disorders are often based on structural or visual field tests which are limited in their ability to detect disease early.  
 
The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP allows clinicians to objectively assess vision disorders often earlier than traditional vision tests because it uses Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) technology and proprietary software to evaluate the entire vision system from the eye to the visual cortex. “VEP is an objective, functional test that can help discriminate between healthy and glaucomatous eyes,” says Alberto González García, M.D., neuro-ophthalmologist and Research Director at Diopsys, Inc., the device manufacturer. Eye care professionals may use VEP in addition to traditional testing methods to enhance diagnosis and treatment.
 
The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP records the electrical response of a patient’s entire vision system and provides easy-to-read reports that give the doctor a simple way to evaluate optic nerve function. Clinicians are able to compare tests over time to track disease progression. 
 
Dr. Michael Duong OD and Dr. C. Stephen Johnson OD of The Optometric Center & Eyewear Galleria say, “By using the Visually Evoked Potential we can rapidly measure the speed  and the strength at which information reaches the visual cortex from the eye. This information is vital in the treatment of glaucoma and other optic nerve disorders.
