Laser Scanning Polarimetry

LASER SCANNING POLARIMETRY (Zeiss GDx Nerve Fiber Layer Analyzer)

Laser scanning polarimetry of the retinal nerve fiber layer with our Zeiss GDX nerve fiber layer analyzer enables measurement of extremely small changes retinal nerve fiber thickness. This instrument scans the retina with a laser light and measures polarization to detect microscopic alterations or defects in the nerve layer in the retina. During this procedure the patient is asked to look at a red blinking light while the laser scans the retina. The test is completely painless and provides a digital color nerve fiber analysis in a few minutes. This test is extremely helpful in managment and early detection of glaucoma.

As part of 20/20's commitment to excellence in vision care, we provide:

• Evaluation and management of health-related problems of the eyes such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

• Treatment of complications from eye infections, ocular allergies, and dry eyes.

• Pre and post-operative care for cataract and refractive surgeries.

• Custom contact lens fitting for astigmatism, bifocals, sports; as well as specialty fits for keratoconus.


If you have any questions regarding any procedure, we're here to provide you the answers.
