|WE OFFER STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT FOR MAXIMUM ACCURACY AND COMFORT
- Humphrey Corneal Topography System
This new computerized photographic instrument surveys the cornea and provides a detailed topographical "map" of its shape. If you are considering new contact lenses or thinking about refractive surgery, this information is vitally important. This system is a major advancement in corneal analysis. This system can detect slight conditions often invisible to even the most thorough conventional testing and aids the doctor in properly prescribing glasses as well. The system also helps Dr. Vosseteig to monitor subtle changes on your cornea over time. Until now, instruments used for measuring the curvature of the cornea were only able to measure a small area near the center of the cornea. Contact lenses and refractive surgery, on the other hand, involve a much larger area of the cornea. This system measures a wide area of the cornea utilizing data from almost 8000 points. Colors are used to create a model of the cornea that Dr. Vosseteig will use to provide you with the very best eye care services possible.
- Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer
A new highly sophisticated instrument now allows us to provide a more thorough medical analysis of your eyes. Our new Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer is one of the most advanced instruments developed for the eye-care field. It electronically measures Retinal Function and Optic Nerve Pathways for areas of diminished sensitivity to light in the central and peripheral (side vision) areas.
The instrument can assist in the early detection of many disorders, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, optic neuritis, and neurological conditions including brain tumors. These conditions affect a person's vision in ways one may not notice until the disease has become severe, and in some cases, may be the only effective way of detecting these problems, if they exist. We are pleased to offer this testing in our advanced office.
We are proud to be the only eye doctor office in Fort Collins to offer this incredible technology. It is the world's only binocular wavefront aberrometer. This unbelievable piece of equipment is used to measure the way light travels through the eye, and maps the unique optical fingerprint of the eye, or iPrint. This iPrint prescription is then used to produce special custom eyeglass lenses called IZon lenses. Ask our opticians for more information today!
This technology allows a very high resolution photograph to be taken of the inside of the patient's eyes to insure good eye health. This becomes a permanent part of the patient record, allowing us to compare present eye health to previous visits. This instrument allows us to detect the early onset of certain ocular and systemic diseases - such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Do you hate the "puff of air" test? Don't worry, we the latest techonology in this kind of testing - a Canon TX-10 Tonometer. It uses 4 times less pressure than previous generations for a much more comfortable and accurate test.
This test is used to help determine if you have glaucoma.
- Computerized Lens Analyzer
This instrument is used to make accurate readings of previous and new glasses prescriptions in a matter of a few seconds. This valuable tool insures your glasses are made to the precise prescription asked for by the doctor. It also allows our staff feedback and notification of special situations, such as lens distortions, undetectable by other means.
