Over the past couple of years our office has strived to provide the best quality of care for our patients. This has entailed four new pieces of innovative technology designed to provide our doctors with the latest diagnostic tools for your best vision care. Hinton Optometry Clinic has acquired this non-standard equipment to reduce or eliminate the need for patients to go to specialists in larger cities if there are concerns. Usually covered by AHC.

Our newest addition!
CLARUS 500 - Fundus Retinal Camera
Retinal Imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that takes high definition images of the interior surface of the eye including the retina, retina vasculature, optic nerve, and posterior pole (central part of retina).
The doctors of Hinton Optometry Clinic use this tool to compare images over time to detect early eye disease. They feel it is important enough to be part of a standard comprehensive eye examination.
This service is included with our standard fee, but is not covered by AHC for seniors. There is a small charge for this service to help cover costs and maintenance.
OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography
A non-invasive imaging test which uses light waves (laser without radiation) to take cross sectional images of the retina and optic nerve. It may enable early detection of eye disease that may develop without symptoms. It also provides guidance for treatment of glaucoma and diseases of the retina such as age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
HFA3 – Visual Field Analyzer
Visual Field Testing is a computerized test, taking a subjective measurement of your side vision. It rules out any blind spots in your vision and helps determine if there is any dysfunction within the eye, visual pathway to the brain and/or inside the brain.
A tonometer is a diagnostic tool used by an optometrist to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) inside a patient’s eyes, as well as your prescription. With the Tonoref III, multiple measurements can be performed at one sitting, increasing patient comfort and maximizing clinical efficiency.
