"In our Specialized Center we carry out all kinds of studies, with the most modern equipment, thus ensuring greater accuracy and speed in obtaining results."
(Notice of Quantel Medical with Probe B of 10 and 20 Mhz)
It is an ultrasonography, with which we can evaluate the eyeball and the orbit.
Uses / Application:
Ocular trauma, intraocular or orbital tumors, middle opacities (cataract, vitreitis), retinal detachment and vitreous hemorrhages.
Specular Microscopy (Konan NonconROBO)
It evaluates quantitatively and qualitatively the endothelial cells of the cornea.
Pre-assessment of cataract surgeries; to diagnose corneal guttata and other corneal degenerations.
Biometrics: (Quantel Medical Notice)
It consists of the measurement of the axial length of the eyeball, by the technique of immersion, which guarantees greater accuracy.
For the calculation of the intraocular lens that is placed in cataract surgery; for diagnosis and follow-up of ocular diseases such as: Ptisis bulbis, Microphthalmos, Nanoftalmo, Axial myopia and Congenital Glaucoma.
Campimetry (Humphrey HFA 740i)
It is a diagnostic test that determines the alterations of the visual field.
For the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma, and neurological diseases and intracranial tumors.
Campimetry FDT Matrix
It is an instrument for the study of the visual field, designed for the early, fast and effective detection of the decrease of the visual field. It is used in patients who do not collaborate well for the Humphrey Campimetry and allows to detect visual alterations before that with the Humphrey.
For the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma, neurological diseases and intracranial tumors.
Tomography (Heidelberg HRT III)
It is a study used to evaluate the optic nerve, Neuroretinal Ring and the nerve fiber layer of the retina.
Diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma and diseases of the optic nerve.
Pachymetry (Accupach VI of Accutome)
Evaluates the corneal thickness.
Essential for determining the real intraocular pressure in the diagnosis and follow-up of glaucoma, for refractive surgery and for keratoconus surgery.
High-resolution, state-of-the-art Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), which allows the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma and optic nerve diseases, macular and retinal pathology.
Diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma, diseases of the optic nerve, retina and macular area.
Digital Fluorescein Angiography (Canon CF-1)
Digital Camera to perform Fluorescein Angiography and photos of the eye fundus.
In diabetic patients to evaluate: macular degenerations, neovascular membranes, arteriovenous diseases of the retina, macular diseases, posterior pole and circulation.
Pentacam (Pentacam HR)
It evaluates the anterior and posterior surface of the cornea, measures the thickness of the cornea, the density of the lens, evaluation of the anterior chamber and the camerular angle.
• Prior to refractive surgery and follow-up.
• Corneal ectasias, such as Keratoconus.
• Accurate keratometric data in patients undergoing refractive surgeries.
• Prior to implantation of intracorneal rings, Crosslinking and its follow-up.
• Prior to intraocular lens implantation, evaluating irregular astigmatism and spherical aberration.
• To evaluate the camerular angle and depth of the anterior chamber, glaucoma, and other pathologies of the anterior segment.
• Prior to the implantation of phakic lenses and their follow-up.
• To adapt toric contact lenses and permeable gas.
Corneal Topography (Tomey TMS4)
Evaluate the curvature and corneal surface.
For diagnosis and monitoring of diseases of the cornea as: Keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, prior to refractive surgery.
Intraocular Pressure Curve:
Although an isolated pressure check is helpful, it is not enough in a patient whom glaucoma is suspected or diagnosed. Patients with glaucoma tend to have large fluctuations in intraocular pressure and these fluctuations are the main culprits for damage to the optic nerve.
Gonioscopy consists of visualizing the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye through the use of special lenses; is performed to determine the state of the angle and to classify the type of glaucoma, either as open-angle glaucoma or as angle-closure glaucoma, which are handled quite differently from each other.
Tearlab (Dry eye test):
Millions of people suffer from dry eye syndrome. However, most cases are not diagnosed. This is often because people who are affected misunderstand the symptoms. Now, thanks to the new technology of TearLab, the test can be carried out in the doctor's office and obtain objective results immediately.
Biometrics by interferometry (LENSTAR)
High precision instrument that performs all measurements of intraocular lenses.
The objective of the test is the evaluation of the vitreous humor, retina and orbit with the help of Biometer-Ecograph. Thus, we determined the axial length, in order to calculate the intraocular lens that should be implanted in the operation of cataracts.
