- Computerized Refraction
An automatic refractometer provides an objective measurement of the refractive errors and the prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
- Biometry with IOL Master 700
This test uses the SWEPT Source OCT technology to study the dioptric (corrective) power of the intraocular lens to be implanted in patients who will undergo cataract surgery.
- Ocular Biometry by Immersion
This technique provides measurable and reliable data for the correct calculation of the intraocular lens to be implanted in cases where the cataract is so dense it prevents measurement with the IOL Master 700.
- Computerized Humphrey Perimetry
Used to assess the alterations of the visual field, it is essential in cases of glaucoma, since the progressive loss of nerve fibers of the optic nerve results in the loss of certain areas of the field of vision. It is also required in many neuro-ophthalmological diseases.
The aim of visual field exploration is to discover these "blind" areas, locate them and measure their extent.
- Endothelial Specular Microscopy
It is a non-invasive technique for the study of the corneal endothelium –the innermost layer of the cornea, responsible for its transparency– which measures the density, size and shape of these cells.
- A/B Ultrasound
An imaging test used to diagnose intraocular pathologies of the posterior segment of the eye and the orbit. It is important for the diagnosis and monitoring of some types of uveitis (inflammation of the vascular layer of the eye), intraocular hemorrhages, studies of retinal detachment, foreign bodies in the eye, tumors, ocular trauma, among others.
- Ultrasound Biomicroscopy (UBM)
It allows for an evaluation and measurement of the structures of the anterior segment of the eye through high resolution images, obtained by ultrasound. It is used in cases of hemorrhages and tumors of the anterior segment; subluxated intraocular lenses; traumatic damage to the crystalline; some types of glaucoma; etc.
- OPD / Corneal Topography and Aberrometry
A corneal analyzer that combines advanced technologies, including an infrared laser which allows the eye to be fully evaluated, providing data such as autorefraction, corneal topography, keratometry, pupillometry and aberrometry studies for cataract and refractive surgeries.
- Pentacam (Ocular Tomography)
A 360 degree rotating camera that performs an analysis of the anterior segment of the eye, providing clear and accurate images in three dimensions. The Pentacam provides information such as anterior and posterior corneal topography with elevation maps; corneal pachymetry; 3D camera analysis; crystalline density; corneal aberrometry; tomography; among others.
- OCULUS Corvis (Corneal Biomechanics Test and Pachymetry)
It records the reaction of the cornea to a defined air pulse with a newly developed high-speed Scheimpflug camera that takes over 4,300 images per second. Intraocular pressure (IOP) and corneal thickness can be measured with great precision on the basis of these images. It studies the corneal biomechanics and reports the CBI index which helps in the detection of keratoconus. In addition, by integrating its data with that produced by the Pentacam, the TBI index is generated to optimize the detection of corneal ectasias.
It measures the thickness of all the corneal tissue, both central and peripheral.
- Keratograph 5M (K5M)
It allows to determine in a quantitative way the tear meniscus, tear break-up time and the analysis of the meibomian glands using infrared light. It is used for the diagnosis of dry eye.
- TearLab Osmolarity Test
An important technology for the diagnosis of Dry Eye Syndrome, it is an easy, simple, safe, fast and objective technique for measuring tear osmolarity (the degree of tear concentration).
- Digital Photography of the Anterior Segment
Using a special camera, photographs are taken of the anterior segment and adnexa as diagnostic images and to follow up on the evolution of different ocular pathologies.
- Digital Photography of the Posterior Segment
Using a special camera, photographs are taken of the inside of the eye in order to detect anomalies of the optic nerve, macula and other structures.
- Fluorescein Angiography
A contrast medium and a special camera are used to examine the blood flow in the retina and choroid. These are the two layers of the back of the eye.
- OCT Cirrus (Optic Nerve and Retina)
A non-invasive diagnostic test that provides high resolution images of the retina and the optic nerve. It does not require contact with the eye because it is based on the reflection of light signals. It facilitates the diagnosis and management of retinal pathologies and glaucoma.
- OCT Visante (Anterior Segment)
A non-invasive optical technology, developed for the diagnosis of alterations of the anterior segment of the eye, including narrow-angle glaucoma and corneal diseases, also used in cases of refractive surgery, among others.
- AcuTarget HD Analyzer
It uses double-pass technology to provide an objective measurement of vision quality. This tool is capable of quantifying the effects of ocular scatter on total vision. The diagnostic capabilities of this device can be used for the diagnosis of early cataracts, for the diagnosis of dry eye presenting without symptoms and for choosing the most appropriate refractive procedure for each patient.
Orthoptics and studies with synoptophore
Orthoptics is a specialty of Ophthalmology responsible for the assessment and measurement of mild, moderate and severe deviations of the muscles of the eye. It also deals with the stimulation and management of amblyopia (lazy eye) which causes partial loss of vision.
The Synoptophore is the instrument used to develop binocular vision through convergence exercises.
It measures the degree of protrusion (forward displacement) of the eyeball.
- Binocular Vision Test
Used to determine whether both eyes are receiving visual stimuli at the same time. It also values stereoscopic vision which allows for the perception of depth, to capture what we see in three dimensions: length, width and depth.
- Color Vision Test
Detects disorders of color perception.
- Contact Lens Fitting
