Dr. Hicks believes in harnessing technological advances to enhance and enrich our lives. Therefore, SeePort has invested in some of the world’s best technology to complement his professional expertise.
Heidleberg Engineering’s Spectralis provides Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and retinal or Fundus photography using Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy to image a wide array of ocular tissues. It is widely revered within the ophthalmic community for it’s imaging capabilities. It’s accuracy and innovation often leads the industry in retinal and ocular structure analysis. SeePort now offers retinal screening to every patient to assist in identifying disease often undetectable through standard examination techniques. Macular disease such as Macular Degeneration, Epiretinal Membranes also known as Macular Pucker, Diabetic Retinopathy and Glaucoma are among the many diseases which Spectralis helps Dr. Hicks to diagnose and manage.
Diopsys Nova allows Dr. Hicks the ability to assess living neuro-retinal tissues functionality. To quote Diopsys directly, “Diopsys is the world leader in modern visual electrophysiology, which includes electroretinography (ERG) and visual evoked potential (VEP) to… analyze the entire visual pathway for visual and neuro-visual disorders.”
Octopus Visual Field Analyzers are coveted in eye care for the ability to target Glaucoma. This is why Dr. Hicks chose to include Octopus at SeePort. Octopus field analyzer is also able to target various visual field deficits specific to Macular disease such as Macular Degeneration. The Octopus has quality control sensors to ensure accurate and usable results.
Tomey Corneal Topography provides highly sensitive micro changes in the shape of the cornea. Topography assists in diagnosis of irregular corneas such as Keratoconus or post surgical including post Lasik ectasia. Topographical technology allows Dr. Hicks to fit highly advanced contact lenses such as Sclerals and is also critical in the Myopia Management option known as Orthokeratology or Ortho-K.
