Dr. Zervas constantly stays abreast of the latest developments in diagnostic procedures and patient care to prevent, detect and treat disorders of the eye. We’re able to provide even more precise, customized care by investing in new and innovative equipment, from state-of-the-art testing and diagnostic equipment to breakthrough ways of managing ocular diseases.
- Slit lamp ophthalmoscopy uses a specialized microscope that allows Dr. Zervas to evaluate the cornea, conjunctiva and other external and internal structures of the eye.
- Indirect ophthalmoscopy uses a head-mounted instrument that gives a broad view of the vitreous and retina and allows examination out to the far periphery of the retina.
- Optical coherence tomography (OCT) uses a light beam to create a high-resolution cross-sectional image of the retina.
- Fundus photography uses specialized film and digital cameras to document abnormalities in the retina. It is important in following the progress of certain retinal diseases and to monitor treatment.
- Visual field or perimetry testing measures the ability of your eye to see straight ahead and to the side (peripheral vision). During a visual field test, one eye is temporarily covered and the patient is asked to look straight ahead at a fixed space and press a button when a light is seen. The visual field examination detects "blind spots" that may be caused by diseases of the retina.
- Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) uses a pain-free, non-invasive way to objectively measure the function of your entire vision system.
- Electroretinography (ERG) is used to detect abnormal function of the retina (the light-detecting portion of the eye).
- Tear Film Analyzer is used as a fast, objective, and non-invasive way to measure vision fluctuation caused by dry eye disease.
- Color Vision Testing uses a tablet to administer a color perception test that diagnoses visual color deficiencies.
