Benefits Of Eye Exams
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining healthy eyes and good vision, as problems may often be present without any symptoms. With regular exams and early detection and treatment, most eye diseases can be prevented.
At Roeloffs' East Hampton Optical, we check for problems like diabetes, which can harm your vision without you even knowing it. At every eye health evaluation, we'll do a thorough screening to detect sight-threatening diseases and problems like glaucoma or cataracts at their earliest stages – before they harm your eyesight.
Common vision conditions that may be detected and corrected include:
Amblyopia ("Lazy Eye")
Astigmatism (blurred vision due to irregular shape of cornea)
Presbyopia (difficulty focusing at close range)
We're dedicated to using the most advanced eye-testing equipment available, so our patients receive the most accurate diagnosis, treatment, and prescription possible.
HRT (Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph)
A laser scanning microscope, the HRT uses a laser light beam to scan across the back of the eye, generating a three-dimensional image of the optic nerve and surrounding retina.
The HRT provides more detailed information that can help in the early diagnosis of glaucoma.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer from Carl Zeiss
The Visual Field test is used to map your visual field to assess your peripheral vision and determine the percentage of visual field loss.
This premier technology aids in the clinical detection, diagnosis and ongoing management of glaucoma and other ocular diseases, such as macular degeneration.
Digital Retinal Camera
An essential tool for helping to diagnose and treat many sight-threatening illnesses, the retinal (or fundus) digital camera is a low power microscope with an attached camera that photographs the interior surface of the eye with high quality results.
The Digital Retinal Camera is used for diagnosing and monitoring the progression of ocular disease from one year to the next, and in screening programs.
