We Use the Latest in Technology to Care for Your Eyes:

OCT (OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY)

.

An OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a laser scanning instrument that allows us to look in great detail at the structure of your retina and optic nerve. We use this to detect and treat eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration. It’s also a useful tool in fitting some of the newer gas permeable contact lenses called scleral lenses.


VISUAL FIELD 

.

A visual field is a test of your peripheral and central vision function. We use it to test for neurological diseases that can affect your visual field. It is also an important part of managing glaucoma patients.


SCLERAL LENSES

.

Scleral lenses are rigid gas permeable lenses with large diameters that are used for conditions when other lenses won’t work. Diseases like keratoconus or post-surgical cases following corneal transplants are treated effectively with these comfortable lenses. We use optical coherence tomography lasers to assist in fitting these lenses to optimize the vision and comfort.


BIFOCAL CONTACT LENSES

.

Bifocal contact lenses have improved dramatically in gas permeable materials, soft lenses and hybrid lenses. Our most common lens that we use is a daily disposable multifocal lens for the best eye health, comfort, vision and convenience.


LipiScan is a high definition device that allows us to evaluate the structure of your Meibomian glands. Structural compromise, which is otherwise invisibe, can be identifed and documented with these images. Meibomian gland structural compromise is irreversible and progressive if it is not treated.

LipiFlow is the only FDA approved device for removing gland blockages and restoring gland functions. Through advances in the application of thermal pulsation technology, LipiFlow utilizes heat applied to the inner eyelids and massage applied to the outer eyelids to remove the obstructions in your Meibomian glands.


AMNIOTIC MEMBRANES

.

Amniotic membranes are small wafers of stem cells harvested from the placenta of a live birth. It is placed on diseased eyes that won’t heal to provide new cells that become part of the patient’s own cornea. It is placed on the eye under topical anesthesia and then covered with a bandage soft lens for about a week. This new procedure has brought healing to people who wouldn’t have a normal cornea again.


Fundus Photography

.

A digital Retinal Photograph that allows our doctors to view the retina and it’s overall health.  Our doctors use this as an adjunct to dilation to give them the best possible view of the back of the eye.


Automated Phoroptors

.

An adaptation of the old manual Phoropter, our doctors find this digital, automated Phoropter yields more accurate results  especially when paired with our wavefront topographer.  Being automated, this Phoropter allows our doctors to perform more tests in less time and let’s you have an easy comparison between four old prescription and your new one.


Wavefront aberrometry with Topography

.

Wavefront aberrometry gives unprecedented assessment of visual acuity and quality of vision in addition to traditional refraction and keratometry. Simulation of retinal contrast sensitivity and visual acuity charts enable objective quantification of visual clarity.


OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT) is a relatively new technique for two and three-dimensional imaging of tissues at the histological level. It is a non-invasive technique that can contribute to the early diagnosis of ocular disease.

Proper diagnosis and early detection is the key to optimal eye health. Our skilled technicians and state-of-the-art equipment can help protect your vision.

Testing such as visual field testing, laser scanning and retinal exams will assure that your eye health is carefully monitored.

Our digital retinal cameras detect abnormalities that can develop into more serious conditions. Eye exams can detect conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Comprehensive views of the inside of the eye are possible with the latest technologies.

    Fuchs' dystrophy (pronounced fooks DIS-truh-fee) is an eye disease characterized by degenerative changes to the cornea’s innermost layer of cells. The cause for Fuchs' dystrophy is not fully understood. If your mother or father has the disease, then there is roughly a 50 percent chance that you will ...

  • Fuchs Corneal Dystrophy

    Fuchs corneal dystrophy affects the cornea, the clear window over the front of your eye. It causes swelling that leads to cloudiness, glare and increasing visual impairment. Women are slightly more likely than men to develop Fuchs. Onset usually happens after the age of 50; though early signs might start ...

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    One of the leading causes of vision loss in people who are age 50 or older is age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This common eye condition leads to damage of a small spot near the center of the retina called the macula. The macula provides us with the ability to clearly see objects that are straight ...

    Diabetes is a condition that involves high blood sugar (glucose) levels. This can affect many parts of the body, including the eyes. One of the most common diabetic eye diseases is diabetic retinopathy, which is also a leading cause of blindness in American adults. Diabetic Retinopathy Diabetic retinopathy ...

    Somewhere around the age of 40, most people’s eyes lose the ability to focus on close-up objects. This condition is called presbyopia. You may start holding reading material farther away, because it is blurry up close. Reading suddenly gives you eyestrain. You might wonder when manufacturers started ...

  • Peripheral Vision Loss

The inability to see within a normal range of view often indicates peripheral vision loss. In severe cases of peripheral vision loss, individuals only ...

  • Presbyopia

    As we age, our eyes—like the rest of our bodies—begin to lose flexibility and strength. When this happens to the lens of the eye and its surrounding muscles, your lens will become stiff. This makes it harder to see close objects clearly because the eyes can't focus properly. It's a natural part of ...

  • Patches

    Eye patches are used to strengthen muscle control in weak eyes. By placing a patch over the strong eye, the weaker eye is forced to do the heavy lifting. While it may be uncomfortable for the patient at first, the muscle controlling the weaker eye will become tougher and more resilient. This will allow ...
