Concerned about Glaucoma?
It is a leading cause of vision loss and usually without patient awareness.
Eyeworks has the most sophisticated technology to diagnose and follow glaucoma.
Early detection means early treatment and a full lifetime of vision.
Frequency Doubling Perimetry
If certain diseases are detected early, vision loss may be minimized. Glaucoma is a perfect example
Frequency doubling is based on an optical illusion produced with vertical bars of contrasting colors (usually black and white) appearing on a screen. It is a very sensitive test to detect subtle visual field loss in the very early stages of many diseases.
See what the American Jouirnal of Ophthalmology says about this instrumentation:
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
The OCT is a computerized scanning laser that takes a non-invasive picture of the layers of the retina. It is able to produce a “virtual biopsy” of this critical structure. This device is often used to diagnose and monitor a variety of ocular diseases, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

Eyeworks was the first office in New Hampshire to use the Cirrus OCT
Visual Field Analysis
Your side vision is important but people rarely are aware of it
The Humphrey Visual Field is a special automated procedure used to perform perimetry, a test that measures the entire area of peripheral vision that can be seen while the eye is focused on a central point. During this test, lights of varying intensities appear in different parts of the visual field while the patient's eye is focused on a certain spot. The perception of these lights is charted and then compared to results of a healthy eye at the same age of the patient in order to determine if any damage has occurred.
This procedure is performed quickly and easily in about 15 minutes, and is effective in diagnosing and monitoring the progress of glaucoma. The Humphrey system uses advanced blue-yellow perimetry, also known as Short Wavelength Automated Perimetry (SWAP), which is proven to detect signs of glaucoma-related vision loss earlier than other tests.
Patients with glaucoma will often undergo this test on a regular basis in order to dtermine how quickly the disease is progressing. The Humphrey Visual Field test can also be used to detect conditions within the optic nerve of the eye, and certain neurological conditions as well.
To see if you have additional risk factors for glaucoma
Pacymetry measures the thickness of the cornea and is commonly done on glaucoma patients.
Gonioscopy allows the doctor to view the anatomy of the eye and its drainage system and is often done on glaucoma patients.
