At Burnsville Health we specialize in state-of-the-art eye health technology. As you have noticed technology in your daily life is constantly evolving, and it is no different with innovations in eye health with new advancements being made all the time. Some of the most cutting-edge eye health technologies we use include:
- OCT (optical coherence tomography): OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique that can be used to create detailed images of the retina and other structures within the eye. OCT is used to diagnose a variety of eye conditions, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
- 3D retinal imaging: 3D retinal imaging is a type of OCT that creates a three-dimensional image of the retina. This technology can be used to visualize the retina in greater detail and to diagnose eye conditions that would not be visible with traditional 2D imaging.
- Artificial intelligence (AI): AI is being used to develop new diagnostic tools and treatment options for eye diseases. For example, AI is being used to develop new algorithms that can automatically detect eye diseases in medical images.
- Gene therapy: Gene therapy is a promising new treatment for a variety of eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa. Gene therapy involves delivering genes to cells in the eye that can help to restore vision.
These are just a few of the many state-of-the-art eye health technologies that we utilize. These technologies are help to improve the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, and they are also help to improve the quality of life for people with eye problems.
