Diagnostics


Diagnostic tests performed in our office are inter alia:

  • sight assessment
  • basic and advanced ophthalmological exam with eye fundus examination
  • gonioscopy (a view of the iridocorneal angle, witch is the anatomical angle formed between the eye’s cornea and iris), and examination with a Goldman three mirror lens (detailed examination of the retinal periphery)
  • IOP – intraocular pressure evaluation
  • auto-refractometry and measure of the curvature of the cornea (keratometry)
  • computerized visual field examination (static perimetry):allows to mark retinal sensitivity to shifting light at specific points in the retina can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision. The result is presented graphically using numerical or graphical map. The test is most often performed in the diagnosis and evaluation of glaucoma
  • ultrasound in the A presentation (biometry): measurement of the length of the eyeball used for calculating IOL power
  • evaluation of corneal thickness (pachymetry) which is necessary before the treatment of corneal refractive surgery and may be helpful in determining the actual intraocular pressure in cases of thick or thin corneas
  • OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) advanced method of diagnosing retinal and optic nerve problems. The method is indispensable in accurate assessment of the morphology of retinal layers and morphology of the optic nerve. The OCT enables the diagnosis of retinal disorders, among others: AMD – age related macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, intraretinal neovascularization and early glaucoma stage (detects changes in the optic nerve before the visual field changes are perceptible)
