Technologies We Use

Learn more about the Technology used at Advanced Vision Center in Swampscott

Optos California

Optos created ultra-widefield (UWFTM) retinal imaging to assist eyecare practitioners in detecting, diagnosing, documenting, and treating ocular pathology that may initially appear in the periphery – pathology that might otherwise go untreated using standard examination processes and technology. Our UWF, high-resolution retinal imaging technique captures more than 80 percent or 200 of the retina in a single image in about 12 seconds. It is transforming the treatment of diseases like as diabetic retinopathy, AMD (age-related macular degeneration), and uveitis. In many cases, this device allows our patients to bypass the dilation component of their tests, leaving them with no physical consequences when they leave the office.

Octopus 300 Visual Field Analyzer

Our visual field analyzer is used to diagnose various types of glaucoma at all stages. The test takes around 2:30 per eye and is fully non-invasive, producing sequential, series, and trend reports. Our doctors can use this information to establish the stage and evolution of a patient’s glaucoma diagnosis.

Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT 500

Our OCT examines the numerous layers of the eye and can show the doctor any potential problems. It provides programs critical to the diagnosis and treatment of various eye conditions, such as glaucoma and retinal disease management, retina evaluation for cataract surgery, and anterior segment imaging for corneal disease. It is a non-invasive, painless test that takes around 5 minutes to conduct and has no long-term effects.

Reichert 7CR Intraocular Pressure Reader

We utilize the Reichert 7CR to measure our patients’ ocular pressure. This equipment allows us to monitor intraocular pressure, or the flow of aqueous fluid through the trabecular meshwork of the eye, swiftly and precisely. This is essential for patients with normal tension glaucoma, primary open angle glaucoma, Fuchs’ or corneal edema, keratoconus, post-LASIK and refractive surgery patients, and individuals with thick, thin, or otherwise biomechanically abnormal corneas. It consists of a painless, quick, and moderate puff of air that leaves no lasting effects.

Topcon KR-8900 Autorefractor

Our autorefractor is a critical piece of equipment in our office. This technology evaluates a patient’s eye prescription to offer the doctor a better notion of where to start in the exam’s refraction process (“better 1 or 2?”), making the test not only more accurate, but also faster. It is completely painless, takes only seconds, and may even be performed on little children.
