OUR SERVICES

Contact Lenses
– we provide a wide range of contact lens services to patients at every stage of life. This includes specialized lenses, such as contacts for astigmatism, bifocal contacts and contacts for disease conditions such as keratoconus. While many of our patients wear disposable lenses, we also work with soft conventional lenses, rigid lens designs and hybrids (lenses that combine the vision of a rigid lens with the comfort of a soft lens). We also sell contact lenses. Please read more in the Contact Lens section of our website.

Glasses – our office displays over 500 frames for men, women and children. Our staff works with each patient to determine what style of lens to use – whether it is single vision, bifocal, trifocal or the "no-line" progressive. They also make suggestions and answer questions regarding features such as photochromatic lenses and anti-reflective coatings. In addition, we also sell sunglasses, safety glasses and sports eyewear. Please read more in the Glasses section of our website.

Low Vision Care – we conduct low vision exams for those individuals who are unable to function well visually with glasses or contacts. This may be due to one of a variety of disease conditions, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. We have a number of low vision devices for demonstration, including hand-held magnifiers, microscopic spectacles and electronic devices. We also work closely with Blindness and Visual Services, the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and the local Association of the Blind.

Comprehensive Eye Care – we provide thorough eye exams to people of all ages. This includes infants, with both doctors participating in the nationwide InfantSee program (read more here). Our exams do not just focus on whether or not you need glasses or contacts, although this is important. They also ensure that your eyes are healthy. As with many other things, preventative care is important – detecting problems early often means that treatment is more effective.

Medical Eye Care – aside from working with glasses and contacts, our practice places an emphasis on ocular health. We perform diabetic eye exams, treat glaucoma, and monitor cataracts. In addition, we diagnose and treat a variety of "red eye" conditions and remove foreign bodies.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Humphrey Zeiss Visual Field – while oftentimes used to monitor peripheral vision loss in glaucoma patients, this instrument is capable of much more. It can be used to help detect brain tumors, to aid in the diagnosis of strokes (to the eye and brain), and to monitor the use of potentially dangerous medications. The test is non-invasive and is much like playing a video game (a boring video game, but one nonetheless!).

Topcon Digital Fundus Camera – this allows us to photograph the structures inside the eye (including the blood vessels, the macula, the optic disc and the retina). It is used to monitor an abnormality or disease condition inside the eye. This includes glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and changes related to high cholesterol and high blood pressure. As the saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words."

Zeiss Cirrus OCT (optical coherence tomography) – this uses optical lasers to perform a detailed evaluation of the retina in certain disease conditions. It can help to monitor the progression of glaucoma and macular degeneration, detect bleeding or swelling under the retinal surface and diagnose macular holes.


Nidek OPD III – this device works in tandem with the Marco Automated Refraction System. It is able to determine both day and night prescriptions, detect aberrations in the visual system and more fully evaluate cataracts. It also provides a contour map of the front surface of the eye, the cornea. This is important in monitoring disease conditions such as keratoconus.

Marco Automated Refraction System – this integrated system provides faster and more accurate results in determining a patient’s prescription. It can also show the difference between a patient’s old glasses (or no glasses) and the new findings with one click of a button.
iFit Dispensing System – this unique iPAD app is used in our optical area and helps patients and staff during the process of selecting glasses. It has several different capabilities, one of which is taking precise measurements needed to ensure a custom fit. It can also take digital photos of patients with the frames they have selected and display them on the screen (up to four at a time). A comparison can then be made between the frame options. The app has educational value as well, able to demonstrate such features as photochromatic lenses, anti-reflective coating and the thinness offered by various lens materials in a particular prescription.
