Peripheral Vision Testing


Peripheral vision testing is important to detect for problems associated with the eye, optic nerve and brain. For more advanced visual fields we use the​  Haag- Streit Octopus 900 is the all-in-one perimeter.  Our screening visual fields or other findings during the exam may dictate the need for advanced visual fields to more accurately diagnose problems with peripheral vision.


This non-invasive procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete and is covered by most insurance programs and Medicare.

 Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)

We are proud to be the first office in Alaska to acquire this instrument!

VEP measures the electrical activity in the vision system. When light from an image enters your eye, it is converted into electrical energy at the retina and travels through the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain which processes vision. The Diopsys® VEP test measures the strength of the signal reaching your visual cortex and how fast it gets there.

​ Eye Care Technology

Technological enhancements have improved the ability for our doctors to manage and detect eye diseases, aid in fitting difficult contact lenses, and keep accurate patient records. Our office keeps up to date on all the latest technological advances to ensure the best quality care for you.​

  • We customize each patient’s prescription by tailoring recommendations, lens designs, and the latest technology according to your lifestyle. 


 OPTOS---Ultra-Widefield (UWF) Imaging


The next generation ultra-widefield imaging technology by Optos allows a 200 degree view of the retina in one image. This panoramic image of your retina allows improved diagnosis and detection of many eye diseases including macular degeneration, retinal detachments and diabetic retinal eye diseases. This breakthrough technology allows us to image areas of the retina, which we previously were unable to.


Is it covered by insurance?
While insurance plans provide basic vision or eye health coverage, they do not currently include this advanced diagnostic testing. However, if your doctor determines digital retinal photographs are medically necessary, we will file this service through your medical insurance carrier.

Retinal Scanner
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an established medical imaging technique that uses light to capture micrometer-resolution, three-dimensional images from within optical scattering media (e.g., biological tissue).​


OCT scans the back of the eye and assist in the diagnosis and management of retinal eye disease and conditions, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal lesions. It provides full color, 3-dimensional images and more detailed information than previously available. This information is invaluable in determining the treatment

process.


Zeiss  OCT completes 27,000 A-scans per second.  This is like comparing an old-style black-and-white analog television to today's high-definition flat screen television.  The faster speed provides an extremely high resolution for more accurate diagnosis of hidden eye conditions.  This device provides color mapping of the optic nerve, retina and macula. This mapping establishes the presence and severity of a condition, such as glaucoma.

 This new instrument is an ultra-high speed, high-resolution scanner for retinal imaging and analysis that is revolutionizing retinal diagnosis.

This non-invasive procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete and is covered by most insurance programs and Medicare.


Digital Retinal Photography:Kowa Retinal Camera


We offer state of the art digital retinal photography using the Kowa Digital Retinal Camera. This gives us a more complete view of the back of your eye (the retina) than has previously been possible. 

What is Digital Retinal Photography?
Digital Retinal Photography is new technology that represents the latest in eye disease detection. It allows us to more thoroughly evaluate your retina, the sensitive tissue in your eye that is responsible for vision. The retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases, which can lead to vision loss.

Why do I need this test? [digital retinal photography]
Digital Retinal Photography gives us a more comprehensive way of viewing your eyes than was previously available and it allows us to perform a more thorough exam. As it adds to our ability to evaluate the health of your eyes, it is especially important if you have headaches, spots or flashes, a family history of glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, or arthritis.

Is it covered by insurance?
While insurance plans provide basic vision or eye health coverage, they do not currently include this advanced diagnostic testing. However, if your doctor determines digital retinal photographs are medically necessary, we will file this service through your medical insurance carrier.

 DigitalSlit Lamp Imaging

Digital imaging systems are used to view and capture high quality contrast images of your eye. Utilizing the newest Topcon Premier Photo Slit Lamp SL-D 7 our doctors can properly manage and identify problems on the front surface of your eye. Some common conditions are viral infections, corneal foreign bodies, and corneal ulcers can be digitally documented in your records.
