Dr. Gulani’s ongoing commitment for perfecting vision is actively complimented by his continued investment in advance technology not only in teaching fellow eye surgeons but also personally educating his patients at Gulani Vision Institute.
Dr. Gulani has acquired the First Pentacam Tomography system in North East Florida thus becoming one of only a few refractive surgery (Lasik) practices in the WORLD currently able to offer this advanced diagnostic evaluation for safety in selecting Lasik candidates.
Corneal Topography as used by Lasik surgeons all over the world involves measuring the curvature of the front surface of the eye (the Cornea). Dr. Gulani uses the Advanced Computerized Humphrey Atlas system to evaluate these “topo” maps which indicate healthy corneas but, more importantly, also problem spots or pathology which would be a contraindication for Lasik. Even though advanced, these Traditional topographers show the front surface of the cornea only. Pathology however can exist on the backside of the cornea and thus, a system which shows the front and the back would be ideal.
The Pentacam is the world’s first Scheimpflug imaging system and shows Dr. Gulani a 3-Dimensional representation of both the front AND back sides of the cornea along withWavefront informationin less than 2 seconds, allowing Dr. Gulani to obtain and evaluate more comprehensive and precise information about your optical system than ever before.
Given Dr. Gulani’s skill in performing the full spectrum of refractive surgery, he feels this Pentacam system with its ability to literally do a CAT Scan evaluation of the cornea, raises the safety margin in selecting proper candidates for Lasik surgery and also to weed out those patients who are not appropriate candidates and detect early pathologies like Keratoconus etc using this technology and its designed software. Together thecorneal wavefront analysisand keratoconus detection improve the pre-operative screening for patients who are interested in refractive surgery as well as for post-operative progression. These are indispensable tools for refractive surgery in order to increase patient’s safety and satisfaction
Incorporating the First in North east Florida, this automated, digitally linked exam room is testimony to Dr. Gulani’s desire for “High-Tech, High Touch” approach to patient care.
Diagnostic information is digitally transferred right to the patient’s chair as this elegant, fully computerized visual testing systems interacts with patients to raise the bar on accuracy in a patient-friendly environment.
Dr. Gulani’s desire to educate his patients with visual images of their conditions along with his constant commitment to teaching eye surgeons is complimented beautifully with this State of The Art Imaging system that uses High Definition imaging along with Advanced software analysis.
Patients can better understand their eye condition by seeing such highly defined photos in real-time and their families can also participate in decision making as Dr. Gulani plans his unique surgical approaches.
These images are used by Dr. Gulani to also educate visiting eye surgeons at the Gulani Vision Institute as well as in his numerous teaching publications and lectures worldwide.
As Dr. Gulani endeavors to pursue vision beyond 20/20, he has incorporated the Optec 6500 to study vision beyond the traditional Eye chart.
He can measure Functional Vision, Quality of Vision and Contrast Sensitivity along with visual potential.
Day/Night testing with/without glare and background luminance can all be used to asses patient visual quality.
This unique advancement in eye care also includes EyeView® Functional Vision Analysis Software which produces images of your patients’ real world vision and can also track the surgical outcomes of all eye surgery.
Made by the leaders of optical lenses, these next generation diagnostic tools provide an in depth view the inside of the eye to complete a thorough eye examination prior toLasikcandidacy. Along with the ReSeeVit imaging system these lenses provide a detailed picture for in-depth evaluations and patient education.
Advanced binocular view of the eye and greater mobility without any wires adds to Dr.Gulani’s pursuit of the Futuristic eye exam suite.
