At Stanislaus Optometric Center, Inc., you will receive one
of the most comprehensive eye exams possible using state-of-the-art
diagnostic equipment. This allows Dr. Nuccio and his staff
to quickly detect signs of disease or abnormalities early
on, while they’re still easy to treat. In addition to
assessing nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and
other refractive abnormalities, they perform a thorough check
for sight-threatening problems like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic
or hypertensive retinopathy, to name a few. Some of the innovative
procedures that are performed include:
Digital Retinal Photography — Produces
a comprehensive view of the retina to help detect eye diseases
such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal
detachments and tumors.
Corneal Topography — Produces a 3-D
map of the surface of the cornea to help diagnose refractive
disorders and disease. Corneal topography is also used in
fitting contact lenses and in planning laser refractive surgery.
Pachymetry — To monitor the progression
of certain disorders that can cause the cornea to change thickness.
Pachymetry can also help determine if a patient’s corneal
thickness makes them a viable candidate for laser refractive
Computerized Visual Field Testing —
This involves a computerized mapping of your central and peripheral
vision sensitivity to light, which is valuable in assisting
in the early detection of many diseases, including glaucoma,
stroke or brain tumors affecting your visual pathway.
Once your eye exam is finished, Dr. Nuccio and his staff
will take the time to go over the results with you. Everything
will be explained clearly so you have a complete understanding
of your current eye health.
