Our office is dedicated to providing the highest quality optometric care at affordable fees.

Your eyes are for life!  Your eye care should be, too.  We take the time to get to know your eye care history and health.  Our holistic approach to eye care ensures that you get the best possible care, advice, and options for your vision needs.

  • While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. This can lead to early detection of common diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. The exam is quick, painless, and may not require dilation drops.

  • Automatic Refractor, Keratometer and Corneal topographer, Optical Path Difference (OPD) and Wavefront Analysis all in one computer device.
     
  • Replacing the standard refractor, this is the latest generation of electronic refraction technology which enhances the patient experience through a more modern and accurate refraction.
  • M&S acuity system is a high-tech alternative to chart projectors.  Our LCD acuity computer chart provides effective and efficient acuity testing.  Compare to the projector, Optometry visual acuity test has improved so much! Plus, we don't have to climb the ladder and replace the projector light bulb any more!!
  • Fourier Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography (FD-OCT) is an optical signal acquisition and processing method.  It captures micrometer-resolution, three-dimensional images.
  • The visual-evoked potential (VEP) is a patient friendly, non-invasive vision testing.  VEP objectively measures the neurological responses of visual pathway.  The result help in the interpretation and diagnosis of vision deficits and tracking disease progression.
  • TelSreen Slit-lamp video camera is the computer syslem for slit lamp photography and video recording.  We have it in both of our exam rooms so every patient and family can view the  fine detail of their eyes.  This allow detection of slight changes of corneal findings, such as resolving eye infections and removing foreign body.  By projecting the images to a LCD screen, these photos can also serve as excellent teaching tools for patients to explain everything from meibomian gland disease to cataracts.
  • Our brand new retinal camera includes the Aurofluorescence (FAF) and the digital filter porcessing.  FAF makes it easy to monitor Macular waste (lipofuscin) which can accumulate in the Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE). Different filters allow us to evaluate differnt layers in your retina.  If you are a photoprapher, this camera incorporates a large, high definition CMOS sensor with 18.0 Megapixels.  
  • Frequency doubling technology (FDT) provides rapid, clinically verified method for the detection of visual field loss including Glaucoma, MS, stroke or RP. 
  • This Automatic lensometer is the newest optical instruments for checking eyeglass lenses to make sure they are the right prescription. This also has build in IC card reader that transfer your lens information to our refraction system. All wireless!
  • We stopped using the draded "air-puff" test to measure intra-ocular pressure (or what some people call the "Glaucoma test") for many years now.  While most patients don't mind soft air puff and Tono-pen, some just counldn't stand the idea of anything touching their eyes, even when they are numb.  Others think any type of eye drops is torture.  Fortunately, we now have the I-Care Tonometer to measure IOP without shooting the puff of air into your eyes or using numbing dorps!!  No puff, No drops and accurate, we love this kinder, gentler way of Glaucoma test.  
  • Inteligent puff system give us the softest automatic puff ever for glaucoma eye pressure testing.
  • We still have Tono-pen for intra-ocular pressure glaucoma testing.  Since we have I-Care, we rarely use Tono-pen.  With over 40 breeds of dogs and cats possessing the predisposition to Glaucoma, the Veterinarian uses Tono-Pen for monitoring Glaucoma on your pets for the past 20 years.  For Human, we do need to use anesthetic (numbing) drops before this one touching your eyes. 
  • The DGH technology B-scan ultrasound displays the internal anatomy of the eyes, allowing for evaluation of the retina when it is obscured by media opacities, such as occur with dense cataract and vitreous hemorrhage.  In addition, B-scan ultrasound testing is an integral test in the evaluation of ocular tumors and variety of other ocular disorders.
  • The Patternless Edger machine has 3 D tracing and edging all lens material accuratly into your frames.
