Cracow Ophthalmology Centre ZOOPTICA
has specialist diagnostic and therapeutic equipment of the most recent generation.
Its qualified and experienced team of medicine specialists ensures high level of patients’ examinations and evaluation of their results.

Ophthalmologic diagnosis:

  • Computer-assisted eye examination (refractometry) and measurement of corneal curvature radius (keratometry).
  • Intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement by applanation (applanation tonometry).
  • Computer-assisted visual field testing (static perimetry): allows to determine sensitivity of the retina to light changes in its given points. The testing involves various strategies (screening and threshold) and various grid patterns (with diverse scopes, density and arrangements of the tested points). The result is presented as an image delivered in the form of maps of figures and graphs. The testing is usually carried out as part of diagnosis and evaluation of the course of glaucoma, abnormalities of the optic disc, headaches and neurological disorders.
  • A-scan ultrasound examination (biometrics): measurement of eyeball length mostly used for intraocular lens (IOL) power calculations.
  • B-scan ultrasound examination: shows a cross-section of eye structure in its back part and partly in its extraocular space and is mostly used for evaluation of the vitreous body and retina.
  • 3D-scan ultrasound examination: facilitates spatial visualisation of intraocular space and retinal surface and is mostly useful for evaluation of larger vitreous and retinal proliferations and preretinal membranes.
  • Corneal thickness measurement (ultrasound pachymetry) as necessary before corneal refractive surgery and helpful in determination of actual intraocular pressure for thick or thin cornea.
  • Computer-assisted videokeratography (corneal topography): analysis of a picture of concentric black and white rings reflected from the surface of the cornea. The apparatus measures the curvature radius and refractive power of the cornea in its given points and presents the above in the form of colour-coded maps and figures. The examination is necessary before the planned corneal refractive surgery and it allows distinguishing the initial cone of the cornea.
