Advanced Technology

Advanced technologies and state of the art equipment allows us to deliver unparalleled eye care at all our Optometric clinics. Some of the equipment we use and technologies we employ are:

OCT – Ocular coherence tomography is a noninvasive scan of the internal structures of the eye. This machine is a critical tool in evaluating possible diabetic damage as well as glaucoma damage to the eye.

Threshold visual field – Visual field testing is one way to monitor whether blind spots are developing in your field of vision from glaucoma damage to the optic nerve. Visual field testing involves staring straight ahead into a machine and clicking a button when you notice a blinking light in your peripheral vision. The visual field test may be repeated at regular intervals so your eye doctor can determine if there is progressive vision loss.

Topography – The procedure itself is painless and brief. It is a noncontact examination that photographs the surface of the eye using ordinary light. The greatest advantage of corneal topography is its ability to detect conditions invisible to most conventional testing.

RetinalCameraRetinal Photography– Retinal photography assists in the detection and management of problems such as diabetic changes, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, optic nerve disease, and retinal holes or thinning. This test is especially important for people with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, flashing lights, floaters, headaches, or a strong glasses prescription.

A fundus camera or retinal camera is a specialized low power microscope with an attached camera designed to photograph the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole. The camera is used to monitor the progression of a disease, diagnosis of a disease (combined with retinal angiography), or in screening programs, where the photos can be analysed later.

Visagraph eye movement testing– The Visagraph®, an eye-movement recording device, is the result of more than 80 years of foundational studies in conjunction with leading reading research. Data collected with the Visagraph® provides unique insight into each student’s silent reading behavior, revealing what may be hindering independent reading development.

Important Notice

March 18th, 2020

Professional VisionCare and The Solution Center realize that COVID-19 is impacting all of our lives.  Please know that we stand with you, your families and our entire community during this difficult time.

Safety is our primary concern, safety for you, your loved ones, our team and our community.  To ensure the highest level of safety we are following a directive by the CDC which we received last evening to postpone all non-essential vision care, this means, all routine eye examinations will be postponed until after the virus has been contained. We will be available to see anyone that has an eye emergency.  If you have an eye problem, we will assess your individual concern and speak with you personally to determine the appropriate care.

If you have an appointment scheduled with us, you will be contacted by phone.  If we are unable to reach you by phone, we will send an email and a text.  We will first be calling patients who are scheduled in the next 2 weeks and continue to reach out to all patients as the landscape changes.

We genuinely care for all of you and all that we serve alongside. We will always do what is in the best interest of our patients and our team.  We will keep you informed as changes occur or as we have news to share.  Please be safe and take all necessary precautions, we are in this together and we will make it through.

Blessings to all of you,

The Doctors and Staff at Professional VisionCare
