Truly Advanced Eyecare

Advanced Eyecare has developed a reputation for offering eye patients in Northeast Alabama an exceptionally high level of diagnostic and therapeutic care. Dr. Turk’s commitment to the latest treatments and most advanced diagnostics is reflected in Advanced Eyecare’s cutting-edge state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge therapies.

Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomography

An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.

A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to an CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.

Optomap by Optos

Optomap is the only true, clinically validated, ultra-widefield retinal image than can capture 82% or 200⁰ of the retina, in a single capture, in each imaging modality – an increase of 50% over the next closest imaging device.

The ultrawide imaging allows for improved detection of ocular and systemic disease.

AdaptDx by Maculogix

AdaptDX allows for early screening of age-related macular degeneration. Known as a dark adaptation test, the screening the AdaptDX performs detects signs of macular degeneration years before evidence appears in more traditional imaging.

The early detection allows Dr. Turk to take action and hopefully slow disease progression to preserve vision.

Prokera Biologic Corneal Bandage

Prokera amniotic membrane tissue is used to treat ocular surface diseases and injuries. They can be used to treat keratitis, dry eye disease, recurrent corneal erosions, herpetic ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases as well as injuries such as scratched cornea or chemical burns.

Prokera products promote faster and more effective healing of the cornea with less inflammation and scarring, leading to improved clinical outcomes with better vision.

Topcon Autorefractor

The Autorefractor uses sensors to calculate a patient’s refractive error and prescription for glasses. The computer-controlled diagnostic tool shines a light into the eye to measure how it changes as it bounces off the retina.

The Autorefractor provides a starting point for Dr. Turk and the team at Advanced Eyecare to use as a benchmark as they refine each patient’s prescription.
