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.
