Eye Doctors Require the Best Technology to Provide the Best Eye Care


Master Eye Associates has Eye Care Diagnostic Instruments and Technology that are Second to None


We know of no optometry practice in Central Texas that has finer, more extensive diagnostic instruments. Master Eye Associates goes beyond the standard of care and beyond state-of-the-art.

technology is a way of showing that we care about you. The only way to
provide you the absolute best care is to have the best diagnostic technology. No doctor can provide an accurate diagnosis without the proper instruments in which to perform the needed testing. If the diagnosis is not correct the proper treatment cannot be provided!






OCT for retina scan, cornea scan, glaucoma diagnosis, eye diseases, eye doctor exam

To better diagnose and monitor glaucoma, retina disease including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy we use the best technology.

Our Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomographer provides an image resolution 200% better than an MRI.

Tomography instrument and its many advantages.  Like an x-ray, only much better, it allows us to look deep inside the layers of the retina to more accurately diagnose disease at the earliest possible time.

cornea disease diagnosis by eye doctors using specular microscopeSpecular microscopy is only available in less than 0.5% of eye doctor offices in the U.S.  This instrument is critical to diagnose numerous serious corneal diseases that can be potentially vision threatening.  The eye doctors at Master Eye Associates are on the leading edge of diagnosing corneal diseases using the high powered specular microscope, which enables our optometrist experts to view the posterior cornea with unparalleled magnification up to 440x!






Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy

Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) provides an exceptional 200 degree wide angle view of the inside of the eye (retina) to allow our eye care professionals the ability to evaluate the surface area of the retina, optic nerve and even the vitreous area at the retina interface.  The terrific diagnostic capability is accomplished without having to dilate the pupil of the eye.

The following list highlights some of the instruments available at Master Eye offices:

Diagnosis For Instrument/Service Benefits
Corneal Diseases Specular Microscopy Diagnosis of corneal diseases early enough to avoid sight threatening complications
Retina diseases & Diabetic Retinopathy Digital Retinal Imaging/Retinal Photography Monitor possible retinal tumors, assist in diagnosis of retina disorders
Glaucoma

Ocular Coherence Tomography (spectral domain) and GDxVCC Scanning Laser Polarimeter

One of the world’s most sophisticated instruments for glaucoma detection.  Can diagnose glaucoma 5-6 years earlier than other  methods.

Ocular Hypertension / Glaucoma Non-contact Tonometer Accurate, objective measurements of intra-ocular pressure in the eye
Ocular Hypertension / Glaucoma Applanation Tonometer Accurate measurements of ocular pressure
Corneal Thickness for glaucoma and refractive surgery/LASIK evaluation Ultrasound Pachometer Determine significant risk factor for glaucoma and determine LASIK candidacy
Glaucoma, retinal disease, neurological disorders Humphrey Computerized Visual Field Analyzer Evaluate loss of visual fields or reduction in sensitivity of retinal tissue to detect various diseases.
Glaucoma, retinal disease, neurological disorders Welch-Allyn Frequency Doubling Technology Field Analyzer Screening of visual fields or reduction in sensitivity of retinal tissue to detect various diseases.
Unexplained vision loss, keratoconus, contact lens problems, irregular astigmatism, contact lens prescriptions Corneal Topographer Precise measurement of the anterior corneal surface topography. Most accurate method to design contact lenses.
LASIK candidate evaluation and Keratoconus evaluations Orbscan IIz Cannot have LASIK safely without this test although most doctors DO NOT HAVE this instrument!
Cataracts, Conjunctivitis, Iritis and other anterior eye diseases Slit Lamp Biomicroscope Illuminated high magnification system for excellent view of the eye
Retinal diseases and Glaucoma Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope

Binocular evaluation of the inside of the eye

Diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears and detachments, vein and artery occlusions and glaucoma Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope Analyzes a 200 degree wide view of the retina for more accurate diagnosis.  Does this without having to dilate the pupil of the eye.
Dry Eye Syndrome, Keratoconjunctivits sicca, superficial punctate keratitis Dry Eye Tests, Quick Zone, Fluorescein Tear Break Up Test Diagnoses dry, irritated eyes due to tear flow complications
Refractive errors (Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism) Refractor (phoropter) Conventional method used to subjectively evaluate for eyeglass prescriptions
Refractive errors (Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism) Computerized auto-refractor Computerized objective refraction
Contact Lens prescriptions Computerized auto-keratometer Measurement of the central area of the cornea to assist in prescribing contact lenses
Evaluate current glasses prescription Computerized auto-lensometer Used to assist in accurately prescribing contacts and eyewear
Ocular Foreign body removal Alger brush / spud instrument Allows removal of foreign material and rust in the cornea from metallic objects
Color vision defects Color Vision Test Evaluate for color deficiency
Depth Perception Stereopsis Binocular Test Evaluate depth perception / binocular function of the eyes
Dry eye evaluation and treatment Lacrimal (tear duct) Dilator Used to allow insertion of temporary or permanent punctal plugs to treat dry eyes
Cornea Analysis for contact lenses & Lasik & keratoconus
Cornea Analysis for contacts & Laser eye surgery & keratoconus

Retina Photography for eye disease treatment, glaucoma, diabetes evaluation

Retinal Photography / Digital retinal and internal eye images 

eye exam for cataracts, glaucoma, pink eye, conjunctivitis using slit lamp biomicroscope

Slit-Lamp Biomicroscope for detailed examination of internal and external eye conditions 

eye exam for glasses and contacts uses a Computerized automatic refractor

Computerized automatic refraction system

eye exam for glaucoma uses a tonometer to measure fluid pressure in the eye

Computerized tonometer to assess intra-ocular fluid pressure, one of the risk factors for glaucoma. 

Automated Digital Refractor 

Auto-Lensometer used at Master Eye Associates Technology in Austin

Computerized lensometer for the most accurate determination of existing optical/eyeglass lens prescriptions
