Technical equipment of our ophthalmic practice:
- Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the macula and the optic nerve
- OCT angiography of the macula
- Fluorescene angiography of the retina (in cooperation with St. Martinus hospital)
- Ophthalmoscopy, wide-angle photography of the retina (Optos)
- Infra-red, autofluorescence, and multicolor images of the retina to display pathological changes
- Visually evoked potentials of the optic nerve (VEP)
- Examination of the field of vision, Goldmann perimetry
- Intra-ocular pressure measurement, measuring the thickness of the cornea
- Objective refraction of the cornea, measurement of glasses
- Laser for retina therapy
- Laser for secondary cataract therapy
- Laser for glaucoma therapy
Optical coherence tomography (OCT)
is a device for the examination and representation of the macula by producing a three-dimensional image. It allows ophthalmologists a precise analysis of the macula structures. This examination is essential for diagnostics and follow-ups of any macular disease.
is a non-invasive examination of retina and choroid vessels. In many cases, it allows for omitting a classic, invasive angiography. This examination is especially important for diagnostics and follow-ups of macular degeneration, diabetes-induced retina diseases, and many other diseases of the macula. The main advantages of this state-of-the-art examination method: It is non-invasive, very accurate, and quick. The patient isn’t even dazzled at all.
Wide-angle photography of the retina
These are made with an Optomap camera. An Optomap is a device that allows to take wide-angle pictures of the retina. Thus, a photographic reproduction of the entire retina can be made without any dilatation of the pupil. This makes is so much more comfortable and easy for our patients. By using this type of examination, our ophthalmologists are able to track any pathological changes of the retina most precise and easy. The images make for more appropriate and fitting therapies as well as follow-ups.
At the fluorescene angiography examination method, a well-tolerated yellow colourant (fluorescene) is injected into the arm vein. The colourant is spread all across the body, finally reaching the vessels at the ocular fundus. Using a special camera, these vessels can be photographed over the course of time. Many pathological changes can be diagnosed by fluorescene angiography.
