How are Cataracts Detected?
In order to detect a cataract, a thorough medical examination by your ophthalmologist is recommended. This way, the ophthalmologist can tell if there are other causes for decreased or blurred vision.
If the cataract is causing only a mild blurring of your vision, a change in your glasses may be all that is needed to allow you to see better. If, however, the cataract is more advanced, correcting your vision fully may require removal of the cataract.
Functional Vision Analysis is the first line of diagnostic testing performed by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist to assess vision on road like conditions. It is a series of non-invasive tests to determine the level of visual compromise under day and night time driving situations.
OPD III and Cassini Topography
In our office, we use the innovative OPD III in concert with the Cassini Topographer. These remarkable wavefront devices use the most advanced technologies available to help us better evaluate your unique vision needs. It gives us the ability to measure and diagnose your corneal measurements much more accurately to best customize the implant to each of your eyes. Please download our OPD III/Cassini Topography Patient Brochure here to learn more.
