Canon CR 2 Retinal Camera - With this instrument we are able to take a picture of the back of the inside of the eye (the retina). We can monitor changes in the retina due to diabetes, high blood pressure and macular degeneration. It is the most accurate way to document changes in the retina over time.
Visioffice - The Visioffice system (pictured right) is a unique patient experience. It recommends the best lens solution for a given prescription or lifestyle and presents personalized demonstrations for every patient using interactive tools. It can record and perform up to 20 measurements, including the real 3D position of each eye's unique rotation center, to create the most individualized lenses possible.
Zeiss Cirrus OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) - Zeiss Cirrus OCT
The Cirrus OCT (pictured right) is one of the latest, state of the art opthalmic instruments available today. It allows viewing of the individual deeper layers of the retina that are not seen by just looking inside the eye. It aids in early detection of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema (swelling).
Corneal Topography - is a non-invasive medical imaging technique used for mapping the surface of the cornea (the outer structure of the eye). It gives a three-dimensional map that assists in the diagnosis and treatment of keratoconus and irregular corneal surfaces. It is also used in planning of refractive surgeries such as Lasik and evaluation of its results.
In addition to fitting spectacles and contact lenses, we provide diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases which affect the human eye. These include:
Glaucoma - A group of diseases that damage the eye's optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness, With early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss. Our office not only routinely checks for glaucoma, but also treats glaucoma.
High Risk Medication - Some medications cause damage to the eye. One such drug is plaquenil, a drug use for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Long-term usage of plaquenil can cause retinal changes in the central part of your vision. With dilated examination of the retina and OCT (Optical Coherence Tonography), we are able to find these retinal changes early and report to your doctor that the drug is causing harm to your eyes.
Dry Eye Syndrome - occurs when the normal flow of tears is interrupted or the tear film is abnormal.
Do you have Dry Eye? Just answer the 12 simple multiple choice questions in the Refresh Dry Eye Quiz to find out. When you’re finished, print out your results and bring it to our office and Dr. Neuhoff can help determine the appropriate treatment for you.
Keratoconus - is a condition where the normally round cornea becomes cone-shaped. Vision distortion increases as the cornea bulges and thins. The apex or point of the cornea often scars, decreasing vision. We fit special contact lenses on Keratoconic eyes, such as Rose K lenses and scleral contact lenses.
Cataract - is a clouding of the natural internal lens of the eye. This causes hazy and blurred vision as well as glare at night. The best treatment for cataracts is removal of the lens and replacing it with an acrylic lens. We provide post-operative cataract surgery management.
Diabetic Retinopathy - is a condition where the blood circulation of the retina is compromised from high blood sugar levels. The vessels will leak fluid and blood that cause deposits on the retina called exudates. These deposits must be carefully watched or vision loss will occur.
Macular Degeneration - is a condition where the central part of the retina (back of the eye) loses blood circulation. As the disease progresses, central vision diminishes and is sometimes lost. It is believed that this breakdown in circulation may be due to lack of nutrients supplied to that area. It is often genetically linked, but can occur in individuals with poor diets or frequent sun-exposure. We can detect macular degeneration in a routine eye exam.
