GDx™ – Precise RNFL analysis for glaucoma case detection, diagnosis, and management
The GDx provides highly reproducible, objective measurements of the RNFL, to detect structural changes early. It then compares these measurements to an age-stratified, multi-ethnic normative database, providing you with a unique visual representation. It also uses neural network techniques to calculate a unique Nerve Fiber Index (NFI) to determine the likelihood of glaucoma. A recent study found that the NFI can differentiate between normal eyes and glaucomatous eyes before visual field loss with sensitivity and specificity of 83% and 82%, respectively.
Why do I need to see an eye care provider?
Many “silent” diseases, such as glaucoma and diabetes, can only be detected through regular eye exams. When these conditions are discovered earlier rather than later, they become easier to treat or manage, allowing for better long-term preservation of eyesight. ...
Ophthalmology addresses the physiology, anatomy and diseases of the eyes. Pediatric ophthalmology focuses on the eyes of children. Pediatric ophthalmologists examine children’s eyes to see if they need corrective lenses or other treatments to improve their vision.

Caused by the same irritants as hay fever, runny nose, coughing, and sneezing, eye allergies commonly affect those who suffer from other allergy symptoms. Not only do eye allergies cause discomfort, but they can also interfere with daily activities.
