Our Services

Arrival

When you arrive at our office for your appointment, you will be greeted by our receptionist who will help check you in and make sure we have all of your current contact, health and insurance information. When you make your appointment, you may be asked to arrive 15 minutes early to complete the registration process.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

Our medical team can often evaluate, test, diagnose and treat you all on the same day. As a result, an initial comprehensive evaluation, with or without treatment, could last approximately two hours. 

On each visit, we will perform a vision test and a measurement of your intraocular pressure, followed by dilation of your eyes. After a wait to allow your pupils to dilate adequately, Dr. Jackson will examine you.

Evaluation and Diagnosis Services

We provide a full range of diagnostic testing at Jackson Eye Care, using the latest technology and equipment, including:

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) – a non-invasive, non-contact device that obtains an extremely high-resolution, cross-sectional image of the affected area, and enhances diagnosis and treatment of patients with macular degeneration, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, diabetic macular edema and other macular diseases.

  • Fluorescein Angiography – involves the injection of a small amount of vegetable-based dye through a peripheral vein — usually in the arm or hand. Shortly after, an ophthalmic photographer takes a series of time-dependent retinal photographs. The injected dye lights up your retinal vessels and helps to reveal problem areas.

  • Diagnostic Ultrasound – uses sound waves to form an image of the eye and is used to examine the inside of your eye.

  • Fundus Photography – a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that provides photographs of the back of the eye to help determine the health of your optic nerve, vitreous, macula, retina and its blood vessels.
