Devices

Fluorescein Angiography (FLA) – Fundusphotpgraphy

Fluorescein angiography is a medical examination to look at the blodd circulation in the retina at the back of the eye. Due to a flurescent dye (Fluorescein) injected into a vein, any damage to the lining of the retina or growth of new blood vessels can be analyzed and determined by taking photographs with a special camera. FLA is often applied to diagnose wet AMD or diabetic retinopathy.

Fundus-Autofluorescence (FAF)

FAF is a procedure to display fractions of waste products accumulated within the RPE. The RPE (retinal pigment epithelium)is a layer of nurse cells located immediately adjacent to the photoreceptors that provide the photoreceptores with nourishment and removes their waste product. The accumulated waste products in the cells of the RPE cause the phenomenon of autoflurescence which allows testing of macula diseases by FAF.
The procedure is apllied without the use of dye which also allows children´s treatment.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

OCT is an imaging technology using a Laser to produce cross-sectional images of the retina. The anatomic layers within the retina can be differentiated which allows a precise examination of the macula. OCT is applied in the treatment of wet AMD and to diagnose other macula diseases.

It is also a way to analyse the optic nerve in different follow-up treatments e.g. for glaucoma.

Keratography (Corneal Topography, Tear Film Analysis)

Keratography is a a non-invasive imaging technology for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea. It´s the outer structure of the eye, which is just as individual as a fingerprint.
While facing an illuminated pattern, of concentric ringsthe shape of the cornea is revealed by the reflected pattern. A computer provides the togogrphical map. Keratography is applied to spot astigmatism and damages of the cornea.

Keratopgraphy is also applied to assess the tear film and to spot cosequences of dry eyes.

Sonography

By sonography retinal detachment, tumors or degenerations of the orbit can be determined and the eye can be measured. Due to narcotic eye drops the sonography can be applied directly on the eye. It isa painless procedure only taking a few minutes.

Biometry

Biometry is a technique to measure various dimensions of the eye, e.g. the axial length, conreal curvature, the thickness of the lense and the anterior chamber depth.These measurements are essential to predict the correct lens power of a lens implant used in cataract surgery.

Pachymetry

Pachymetry is a process of measuring the thickness of the cornea which is essential for the determination of the  intraocular pressure. It can be done by ultrasound or laser treatment and is applied in glaucoma thearaphy.

Perimetry

Perimetry is the systematic measurment of visual field function. It is applied to test the portion of space in which objects are visble at the same moment during steady fixation of gaze in one direction. The limits of the visual field are mapped to lights of different sizes and brightness. Besides other treatments perimetry is used to render medical opinion.

Contrast Sensitivity

Contrast sensitivity can be influenced by various diseases of the eye and thus reduce vision in twilight, or poor visibility conditions like rain or fog. This causes danger for patients when participating in traffic. It can be determined in a medical examination using standard eye chart or a mesoptometer to test visual acuity, dark adaption and contrast sensitivity.
