Wallerich Eye Care and associates complete comprehensive and routine eye care for all of our patients. Occasionally, your eye care provider will advise/request to have additional tests completed to monitor eye related disease or systemic health conditions manifesting in the eye(s).

Medical eye conditions that are followed with additional testing are as follows: macular degeneration, glaucoma suspect, optic nerve disease, choroidal nevus (freckle behind the eye), diabetic eye disease, retinal conditions and many others. There are also systemic conditions that manifest in the eye that include: hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes (diabetic retinopathy – bleeding behind the eye), hypercholesteremia (high cholesterol), stroke, multiple sclerosis, hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine medication management for autoimmune disease, stroke, and many others.

  • Fundus Photography: Retinal photo taken to monitor for any abnormal changes in the back of the eye
  • Optical Coherence Tomography: Non-invasive imaging technology used to obtain high resolution scans of the back part of your eyes (retina, optic nerve, vasculature)
  • Topography: Non-invasive elevation map of the front surface of the eye to rule out corneal conditions (keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, irregular astigmatism, corneal ectasia and others)
  • Visual Field Test: Device capable of measuring your side vision in all directions and the sensitivity of your vision in all parts of your visual field (peripheral vision)
