PRLog - Feb. 22, 2013 - COLUMBUS, Ohio -- columbus, OH., February 22, 2013 – Eye Columbus | Gahanna Vision Center announces the addition of the Diopsys® NOVA-VEP Vision Testing System to the practice. The new vision testing system helps eye care professionals detect vision deficits, including glaucoma and other neuro-visual disorders.

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, reports the World Health Organization. According to Prevent Blindness America, glaucoma is often called the "sneak thief of sight" because half of all patients who have it do not know it. Many optic nerve disorders are asymptomatic since central vision may not be affected until later stages of the disease. Also, diagnosis and management of optic nerve disorders are often based on structural or visual field tests which are limited in their ability to detect disease early.  

The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP allows clinicians to objectively assess vision disorders often earlier than traditional vision tests because it uses Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) technology and proprietary software to evaluate the entire vision system from the eye to the visual cortex. “VEP is an objective, functional test that can help discriminate between healthy and glaucomatous eyes,” says Alberto González García, M.D., neuro-ophthalmologist and Research Director at Diopsys, Inc., the device manufacturer. Eye care professionals may use VEP in addition to traditional testing methods to enhance diagnosis and treatment.

The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP records the electrical response of a patient’s entire vision system and provides easy-to-read reports that give the doctor a simple way to evaluate optic nerve function. Clinicians are able to compare tests over time to track disease progression.

Craig D. Miller, OD of Eye Columbus | Gahanna Vision Center says, “We are very excited to be among the first in Central Ohio to bring this innovative technology into our practice.  I feel this is an important tool that we can use to bring better care for our patients with Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, MS, and even Amblyopia.”  

Eye Columbus | Gahanna Vision Center has two Central Ohio locations in Gahanna and Downtown Columbus. The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP testing is only performed in the Eye Columbus Gahanna location at 159 N. High St. in Gahanna, OH.  For more information about Eye Columbus | Gahanna Vision Center or Dr. Craig Miller, please visit www.EyeColumbus.com
