Special Testing Means Extra Special Eye Care
Spectral Domain OCT
Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated. service.
Visual Field Testing
Visual Field testing can help save vision because it is another test used to diagnose or rule out glaucoma and other neurological disorders that affect vision. This simple, but effective service has saved lives by detecting various medical conditions such as strokes, brain tumors, and other neurological defects.
Essilor Visioffice Digital Measuring System
Today’s high-resolution lenses require laser-precision measurements to perform their best. Our Visiofﬁce system from Essilor allows the opticians to obtain every possible parameter required for modern lenses with extreme accuracy. Our Visioffice system will let you see your best from your new custom, digital lenses from Varilux. No-line bifocals and single vision lenses can be produced precisely the way your eyes will be using them.
Our high-definition digital lenses use the Visioffice® System to calculate a perfect match of lenses based on eye, frame and behavior data. This “dynamic 4D” measurement system uses eye data by precisely tracking optical Eye Center Rotation, or “ERC.” To focus, the eye rotates around a fixed point called the ERC.
The Visioffice® system uses advanced technology to measure this ERC and your dominant eye to make your custom lenses. Frame data such as the size and fit are taken into account to ensure that your new lenses are made precisely for your frame. Behavior data uses natural head posture and gaze to target best vision where you look and see. High-definition digital lenses uses the latest in manufacturing techniques to ensure sharper vision at any angle and under any lighting conditions.
Enhanced Fit™ lenses use W.A.V.E. technology™ to provide sharper vision as well as take into account frame data and prescription to make custom lenses for you. Ipseo™ lenses add behavioral data to create a lens that matches you personally and creates wide, comfortable vision for progressive lens wearers. Fit™ and Eyecode™ are available in multifocal and single vision versions. The result is clear, sharp vision all the time.

Cataract Surgery & Low Vision
A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye. The lens sits just behind the pupil and is responsible for focusing light. As the lens increases in cloudiness, it becomes more difficult to see objects clearly and bright lights can cause glare. The most common form of cataract is that of aging and it is inevitable as we mature. In most cases, cataracts do not cause any harm to the eye and cataract surgery is only done to improve the vision in which glasses no longer can improve the vision. Cataract surgery is more the patients decision than ours, because we usually recomend surgery only when the cataracts are affecting your daily life. There is no harm in delaying surgery if your life is only minimally affected.
