State-of-the-Art Equipment

Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art special diagnostic equipment to aid in the detection and treatment of many eye disorders.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

The OCT is a state-of-the-art diagnostic device used in the diagnosis and management of a wide range of conditions. Specialized lasers in the OCT (safer than the lasers used in your television remote) scan layer-by-layer to form a 3-dimensional map of the part of the eye being examined (optic nerve, retina, cornea, and others). These scans provide such a fine level of detail that problems can often be detected (and treated) years earlier, which can improve outcomes dramatically. This is true of many conditions, including glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, keratoconus, and many more.

 

Canon Digital Retinal Photography

Photographing the retina is a highly specialized form of medical imaging that cannot be done with an ordinary camera. Our customized digital camera is mounted to a microscope with intricate lenses and mirrors that allow us to visualize the back of the eye by focusing light through the cornea, pupil and lens of the eye.

The photographs taken with this equipment are used to document the health of the optic nerve, vitreous, macula, retina, and its blood vessels. Eye doctors can use these photos for documentation, comparison, and sometimes to diagnose certain eye conditions. Photographs can be viewed digitally in each exam room to enable the doctor to interactively review the findings with each patient.

Routine or screening retinal photographs are offered to each patient not only as a way to share a snapshot of your eye with you, but also to document a baseline or any abnormal findings. Our camera also has the ability to document abnormalities on the front part of the eye such as the eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea or iris.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Penner is great. She helps us keep our eyes healthy. Most of the time the staff is awesome too, they seem to get flustered when they have more than one person in the office at a time, but overall no big deal.

All the staff were friendly, understanding and helpful. Their glasses stock had good variety and I found a pair I love despite being really picky about my glasses. Thank you!

Have always used this eye care provider since I started working for Exelon. They do an exceptional job, and are always professional. They fully understand how our insurance works, and are up front and honesty on the costs. I would highly recommend using them for your eye care needs.
