At Clarin Eye Care, we believe in using the latest technology to provide our patients with the most thorough and complete eye exam experience. Starting during pre-exam testing, through to your eye exam and in the optical, technology is a theme in our office that is consistently presented to patients. Here are a few examples of how we leverage state-of-the-art innovations to enhance the care of our patients
Clarin Eye Care is proud to announce the inclusion of the iWellnessExam as an important part of our complete eye examination. Similar to an MRI or CT scan for the eye, the iWellnessExam uses the SD-OCT to produce cross sectional images of the retinal layers – which is sensitive area of the back of your eye – in a matter of seconds.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress without symptoms. In early stages, you may not even notice a change in your vision. But sight threatening conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and others can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina, including the iWellnessExam.
The iWellnessExam provides:
• Detailed SD-OCT scan reports to show a healthy eye or detect early signs of disease.
• Thickness maps of the retina and ganglion cell complex giving your doctor detailed information simply not available with other methods.
• The opportunity for you to view and discuss your iWellnessExam scan reports with your doctor at the time of your exam.
• A permanent record for your file, which allows the doctor to compare your iWellnessExam scan reports each year to look for changes.
The iWellnessExam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all ages and provides your doctor with valuable information about the health of your most precious gift – your sight.
We package the iWellnessExam with the Optomap® as a new standard in optometric eyecare. The optomap produces an ultra-widefield view of your retina that is only available with this particular machine. Again, many eye problems can develop without you knowing and can happen without any change in your sight. Fortunately, diseases or damage such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
The inclusion of optomap as part of a comprehensive eye exam provides:
• A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
• A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more comprehensive view than they can get by other means.
• The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
• A permanent record for your file, which allows the doctor to view your images each year to look for changes.
The optomap is fast, easy, and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time. The optomap images are shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you during your visit.
Our doctors also use the latest technology to determine your eyeglass and contact lens prescription. Through digital refraction, rather than manually flipping the lenses back and forth, we have more options to test your vision and can make the entire process easier for you. With the ability to fine-tune the numbers with ever greater accuracy, we can ensure our patients leave with the correct prescription nearly every time.
