  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Macular degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal diseases

 

 OPDIIIComputerized assisted refractive exams (OPD-III) uses wave-front technology (same used in laser vision correction) for fast, accurate measurements of your eyeglass prescriptions.  Detailed measurements of your cornea and visual pathway allows unpresidented interpretation of your visual system.  This is an example of a corneal disease called Keratoconus.  Here are some more examples of diseases of the cornea.  

The OPD-III is used for:
