HRT

 

 

 

page12 1

 

Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph (HRT) is a state of the art imaging system that uses laser energy used  to measure the three dimensional structure of the retina and optic nerve.   This technology creates a detailed topographic map of the optic nerve and is used to detect early loss of the nerve fiber layer associated with glaucoma. The results from HRT are used to formulate the most effective individual treatment plan possible.

    Glaucoma is an eye disorder that results from damage to the optic nerve and is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide.  Although there is no cure for glaucoma, early detection and treatment can help manage the condition and prevent vision loss.
