Complementary Exams

 

Topography of the Cornea

 
Computerized examination that studies the surface of the cornea identifying diseases of this region of the eye. Very important exam to perform refractive surgeries.
 

Optic Nerve Tomography

 
Computerized examination that measures the anatomical alterations of the optic nerve, very useful to follow the evolution of the glaucomatous excavations.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ophthalmologic Ultrasound

 
Study of the interior of the eye through ultrasound waves when the media (cornea, lens, aqueous / vitreous humor) are not transparent.
This technique allows to detect tumors, retinal detachments in patients with cataracts, hemovitreo, etc.
 
 
 
 

Visual Fields

 
This examination is done using increasingly clear and accurate techniques. Computerized perimeters are currently used to study the sensitivity of each retinal point .
Examination of visual fields is the only test that can detect early changes that easily go unnoticed to the patient.
 
 
 
 

O.C.T. (Optical Coherence Tomography)

 
Modern Technique for Study of the retina, allowing to visualize in great detail all the layers of the Retina.
For this study, we can say that a biopsy is done, virtual histology without touching the retina, very useful to analyze Retinal pathology.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Retinography

 
Non-mydriatic Retinography allows photographing the ocular fundus without the need for dilating drips.
Retinal pathology can be easily documented and archived for later evolutionary comparison.
 
 
 
 

Biometry

 
An ultrasound technique used in patients with cataracts that aims to calculate the power of the intraocular lens used in cataract surgeries.
