An autorefractor or automated refractor is a computer-controlled machine used during an eye examination to provide an objective measurement of a person's refractive error and prescription for glasses or contact lenses. This is achieved by measuring how light is changed as it enters a person's eye.
iCare tonometers are based on unique, patented rebound technology, in which a very light and small probe is used to make a momentary contact with the cornea. No specialized skills for its use the quick and painless measurement is barely noticed by the patient and any anesthesia or inconvenient air puffs are not needed at all. Icare technology has been proven accurate and reliable by several clinical studies. At Battle Born Eye Care we use the iCare Tonometer for easy, accurate and patient-friendly intra-ocular pressure measurement.
At Battle Born Eye Care, we offer Corneal Topography. Computerized Corneal Topography gives accurate mapping of the corneal curvature. It is a computerized Video-Keratometer, that maps the surface of your cornea. What this map reveals is the topography, or shape of the corneal surface. The Corneal Topography assist in contact lens fitting, refractive surgery, orthokeratology and general assessment of the cornea. Corneal maps can also detect changes in corneal shape from office visit to office visit, which is extremely helpful in keratoconus. Maps can even be sent over the Internet to contact lens manufacturers who are customizing lenses, or to other doctors for second opinions.It supports many important optometric applications, including contact lens fitting, pathology detection and management. So if you haven’t yet seen a map of your cornea and you need a contact lens fitting in Reno, contact our office to schedule your appointment.
