Galbrecht Eyecare Introduces Revolutionary New Technology for Early Glaucoma Detection

LogoGalbrecht Eyecare in Olathe, Kansas announced today the addition of a cutting edge new technology that promises to revolutionize the detection of glaucoma. The Zeiss Glaucoma Detection with Variable Corneal Compensation (or GDx VCC) performs a non-obtrusive scan of a patient's retina to measure the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFl) without the need to dilate the eye. Changes in the thickness of the nerve layer is an early indicator of glaucoma. The GDx VCC assesses the eye from both a structural and functional point of view and detects structural changes in the retinal nerve fiber layer. This helps to detect early signs of glaucomatous structural damage.

Today, like so many other things we are familiar with, the Snellen Chart has gone digital.

Galbrecht EyeCare Installs the Nidek Retinal Camera in Its Kansas Offices

LogoRetinal cameras are used to take a digital picture of the retina of the eye, or the back of the eye. Since the eye is the only place on a human body where you can see the vasculature of the body without invasive surgery, using a retinal camera enhances the management of retinal disease, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, and can also diagnose cases of diabetes and hypertension. Modern optometric practices need a retinal imaging solution and local optometrist Galbrecht Eyecare from Olathe and Shawnee are now using one of the most advanced pieces of equipment on the market.
