Special Testing

Special Testing Means Extra Special Eye Care

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated.

Visual Field Testing

Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.

Tear Analysis

We use tear analysis for the diagnosis for various ocular surface diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, allergy, and dry eye.

LASIK Vision Correction

In our office, you will receive a thorough and detailed assessment to determine your candidacy for laser vision correction. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Our doctor is fully certified and experienced in laser vision correction pre- and post-operative care.

We know that laser vision correction is a considerable decision, and your needs and expectations will be taken into account in the evaluation process. You will receive an unbiased recommendation as to your suitability for the procedure.

Cataract Surgery & Low Vision

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye. The lens sits just behind the pupil and is responsible for focusing light. As the lens increases in cloudiness, it becomes more difficult to see objects clearly and bright lights can cause glare. The most common form of cataract is that of aging and it is inevitable as we mature.

In most cases, cataracts do not cause any harm to the eye and cataract surgery is only done to improve the vision in which glasses no longer can improve the vision. Cataract surgery is more the patients decision than ours, because we usually recomend surgery only when the cataracts are affecting your daily life. There is no harm in delaying surgery if your life is only minimally affected.

Inflammadry | Dry Eye Disease and Inflammation

Dry eye disease is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Over time, a dysfunctional tear film may damage or scar the front surface of the eye, impair vision, and increase risk of infection. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem. 

 

Approximately half of symptomatic dry eye patients have clinically significant inflammation of the ocular surface.1 The InflammaDry test can determine the presence or absence of ocular surface inflammation.  The InflammaDry test requires a small tear sample collected with a fleece that is gently dabbed along the lower eyelid. The test does not hurt, but some patients may experience slight discomfort.  InflammaDry provides test results in 10 minutes; a positive result indicates the presence of ocular surface inflammation.

 

By using InflammaDry to “rule in” or “rule out” ocular surface inflammation, doctors can better determine the best and most appropriate therapy or combination of customized therapies for each patient.  Patients with confirmed inflammation may benefit from anti-inflammatory therapy.  Repeated InflammaDry testing after initiation of therapy can confirm if the patient response to therapy is adequate, or if additional therapy is required.

Pachymetry

A pachymetry test is a simple, quick, painless test to measure the thickness of your cornea. With this measurement, your doctor can better understand your IOP reading, and develop a treatment plan that is right for your condition. The procedure takes only about a minute to measure both eyes.

Fundus Photography

Fundus photography is an advanced digital retinal photograph. By taking a digital fundus photo image of the back portion of the eye (the retina), the doctor can detect and monitor ocular health. The screening picture that is produced captures a clear view of the optic nerve, blood vessels, macula and fovea. Fundus photos can be a baseline measurement for future comparison. A look at the internal view of the eye can be key in detecting Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Retinal detachments and many more eye issues detectable at very early stages.

Extremely professional not prejudiced against any customer in they do everything they can to help service our needs. Out of all the eye doctors in Somerset this is the one that I have always came back 2 through the years. I just want to say that they have amazing staff and doctors, I always thought that when somebody says that they feel like they are at home at a place like this it sounds corny, but really and truly that's what it's like there.

Dr. Murray and her staff at Eye Health of Stanford and Eye Health of Somerset are excellent! My family and I have been going to them for 20 years now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They also have an exceptional technician Callie Rogers who goes above and beyond to make sure my family’s needs are better!

Very friendly, courteous and thorough in exam. The only thing I could suggest. Is scheduling fewer patients at same time. Took a while to get seen by optometrist. Only one there and they kept her really running.

Moved from Northern KY area last year to Stanford, KY. I needed to have my eyes checked due to not being able to read small print. I went to see Dr. Murray for a checkup and I needed a new prescription. The exam was thorough, the ladies in the office were friendly and Dr. Murray took her time with me. A very pleasant experience. I am thankful I found Eye Health of Stanford to take care of my aging eyes!!
