Our state of the art facility was designed from the ground up to deliver unparalleled retinal care to our patients in a modern and comfortable environment. The equipments were selected to maximize and enhance patient care with the latest effective diagnostic and treatment measures.

  • Electronic Medical Records - CCHIT Certified: Your records will be safe with us. Our technology is backed by one of the largest healthcare corporations and our system is certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology. It also enables us to be able to offer our patients a means of secure communications with our office for appointment requests (non-emergency only), medication refill requests or secure messaging, etc. Please contact us to provide you with an enrollment token for log-in.

  • HD Spectral (Fourier) Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): This latest generation of OCT utilizes an advanced technology to precisely image the retinal tissue and vitreoretinal interface in ultra high resolution. This translates in practical terms to the ability to diagnose at an earlier stage of the retinal disorder. In many cases, earlier diagnosis and treatment leads to better outcome. The HD OCT also requires less testing time for the patient, and is more comfortable than previous generation OCTs.

  • Fluorescein Angiography, Fundus Autofluorescence and Fundus Photography: Infrared capture technology and high resolution optics diminishes the bothersome bright lights during testing for the patient, while achieving a greater level of resolution than previous technology.

  • Indocyanine Green Angiography: Highly effective in imaging the layer beneath the retina, the choroid, which may be important in some variants of macular degeneration, and choroidal disorders affecting the retina.

  • Digital B-Scan Ultrasound: High resolution sonogram that is utilized to evaluate in cases of intraocular bleeding, trauma, tumors, and when the view of the retina is obscured by a corneal scar or extremely dense cataract.

  • Solid state green 532 Laser: Retinal laser surgery is highly effective when indicated in conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears, retinal detachment, retinal vascular disorder, and macular degeneration. Our state of the art retinal laser is coupled with our digital imaging system to deliver surgical precision in the hands of Dr Ko.
