My goal is to be cutting edge and to provide the best vision care possible. To that end I offer many of the latest technologies available in vision care. Technologies I provide include:
AUTO-REFRACTION: I use the latest Topcon KR-1, fully automated autorefractor to get a baseline for all my patients. This aids in exact measurements of difficult Astigmatism, and enables precision fitting of contact lenses… especially the most hard to fit cases! It is considered an “objective” measurement of refraction and is useful to compare with your “subjective” findings.
RETINOSCOPY: A highly specialized technique that allows me another “objective” measurement of your child’s prescription. It is usually reserved for children or for those who’s subjective responses may not be accurate. Combined with auto-refraction, retinoscopy allows me yet another way of confirming your refraction. Done properly and when medical concerns are not indicated, this test may be done in place of dilating a child’s eyes.
RETINAL IMAGING: If a picture of your eye is indicated, I provide retinal imaging with my Kowa Nonmyd 7 Retinal Camera. This enables a highly magnified view of the inside back of your eye, an essential component of a medical eye exam especially for those with Diabetes, Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration concerns.
VISUAL FIELDS: I use the latest Haag-Streit Visual Fields analyzer, the Octopus 900 system. With two separate protocols (Static & Kinetic) I am able to customize your treatment. This is an essential test for those needing glaucoma management & for those with neurologic concerns.
