Diagnostics Instrumentation

Autorefractor / Keratometer

The Autorefractor is a pretesting instrument that provides a starting point to help the optometrist to determine your best eyeglass or contact lens prescription.

Along with autorefraction, this instrument also provides the pretester with the measurements on the front surface of the eye.

Non-Contact Tonometer / Pachymetry

The noncontact tonometer (NCT) (also known as the air-puff test) measures the pressure inside the eye

Along with NCT, pachymetry relates to the measurement of the thickness of the cornea.

At Optometrists On Broadway, these instruments are routinely preformed with every eye exam and provides the Optometrists with valuable information about your eyes.

Visual Field Testing

A visual field test measures a patient’s peripheral vision. The test is designed to count a patient’s subjective response to flashing lights, bright or dim, all around the center fixation point. Each eye is tested independently and the entire test takes about 15-30 minutes.

Optometrists On Broadway have a new Humphrey Field Analyzer with liquid lens technology. This instrument provides the Optometrist with valuable information to aid in the diagnosis of certain eye diseases. Glaucoma, stroke and other diseases that affect the visual pathway can be detected early and therefore treated accordingly.

OCT – Ocular Coherence Tomography

An OCT is a new and advanced diagnostic tool that allows the Optometrist to view the retina and optic disc in a detailed molecular level. The noninvasive “pictures” reveal the 10 layer cross section images of the back part of the eye.

The patient benefits with early detection and treatment of certain eye diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, macular holes, swelling of the macula, diabetic macular disease, retinal detachments and more.
