Examination of glaucoma

Refraction Test

This test can help to determine the extent of poor vision and monitor a person who is being treated for an eye disease and the form of cornea.

Tonometry (Eye Pressure Measurement)

Measure the pressure inside your eye using a noncontact tonometry with an "air puff".
To determine whether you have glaucoma, a disease which causes pressure to build up inside your eyes and may result in blindness. The normal eye pressure range is 10 to 21 mmHg.We use applanation-tonomater too. The surface of the eye is numbed with eye drops. The lamp is moved forward until the tip of the tonometer just touches the cornea.

Slit lamp Examination

Examine the cornea, iris, lens and the anterior chamber. This test can help to determine of itching and ache for your eyes.

Retinal Examination(Ophthalmoscopy)

This exam needs to open your pupil. Eye drops may be placed in your eyes to widen (dilate) your pupils. This test can be help to determine cataract and another inflammation of crystalline lens.

Humphrey Field Analyzer

This test can help to determine the loss of your eye sight. You will rest your chin and forehead on a support that keeps your head steady. There are FDT, Humphrey Field Analyzer and Gold man Field Analyzer in our eye clinic.

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)

Take photograph of retina. This test can help to determine detailed data of your eyes like a MRI. This test is used to examine the glaucoma and loss of eye sight.

Gonioscopy

Checks for blockages in the area where fluid drains out of the eye.
This test can help to determine whether or not you need laser exam. Also this exam used to look at the front part of the eye between the cornea and the iris.
