We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Here are some of the different types of tests and equipment you may experience on a visit to our Practice.
Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots (scotomas), peripheral vision loss or visual field abnormalities. It is a straightforward and painless test that does not involve eye drops but does involve the patient’s ability to understand and follow instructions.
An initial visual field screening can be carried out by the optometrist by asking you to keep your gaze fixed on a central object, covering one eye and having you describe what you see at the periphery of your field of view. For a more comprehensive assessment, special equipment might be used to test your visual field. In one such test, you place your chin on a chin rest and look ahead. Lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating. Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 15-45 minutes. These machines can create a computerized map out your visual field to identify if and where you have any deficiencies.
SPFX Lens Fittings
Special effects contact lenses can be custom fit for actors, stunt doubles, or cast/crew in the film industry. All lenses are hand painted and are available as scleral or corneal lenses.
After your eye exam, you can speak with one of our professional opticians to have all your measurements taken for eyeglasses. Our opticians fit precise PD measurements as well as OC heights for glasses.
Patients who have kerataconus will generally have a hard time wearing everyday contact lenses and/or may not be able to achieve 20/20 vision through their eyeglasses. At Atlanta Vision Optical, we can fit and design custom contact lenses for patients with corneal issues such as kerataconus.
