As an eye surgeon and ophthalmologist, Dr. Zwillinger carries out non-invasive functional ophthalmological explorations. These additional examinations help detect and monitor diseases such as glaucoma, cataract and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Ophthalmology and functional exploration
Depending on the vision troubles that are being looked into and the detection of a potential eye disease, Dr. Zwillinger carries out a series of exams where necessary:
- Tomography and optical coherence: this sectional retinal assessment uses efficient imaging techniques and helps check retinal health and glaucoma progression.
- Automated visual field analyzer (Goldmann perimetry): helps monitor glaucoma.
- Corneal pachymetry: this test determines corneal thickness. The data is important when it comes to the surveillance of diseases like glaucoma.
These explorations are carried out at the medical practice with the right equipment and technologies. Once the tests are completed, Dr. Zwillinger hands over the results and takes time to explain them to you.
