Dr. Michelle L. Spittler & Associates may recommend further testing with our technologically advanced instruments to provide more information about your eyes. These specially designed medical instruments are used when diagnosing, managing and treating ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other disease processes of the eye. Depending on findings, other tests may be ordered including:
Retinal Imaging is a sophisticated camera used to study the back of the eye (retina)
Cirrus HD-OCT (optical coherence tomography) is an instrument that painlessly scans the back of the eye (retina) and produces cross sectional images and measures the thickness of the retina. It is valuable in treating glaucoma and monitoring macula disorders.
Visual Field Testing measures blind spots and peripheral vision
Anterior Segment Camera is a sophisticated camera used to study conditions of the external eye
