OptiVision Eye Care has purchased some of the most advanced technology available because we want the best for our patients. The Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) and the Zeiss Visucam Retinal Camera offer OptiVision Eye Care doctors the ability to diagnosis and follow retinal and optic nerve disorders earlier.
Allows Dr. Gerald Clarke & Dr. Eric Larson the ability to visualize structures inside the eye and is useful for diagnosing and treating glaucoma, cataracts, corneal & retinal diseases as well as making measurements necessary for some refractive procedures.
This ultra-wide digital screening technology has multiple benefits:
Your insurance plan may provide you with basic vision examination coverage but does not include advanced disease detection procedures like the Optomap so there is a minimal out-of-pocket fee for this imaging (unless you have an appropriate medical diagnosis which may be covered by insurance).
The latest device used to determine IOL (Intraocular lens) power for cataract surgery. It allows allows fast, accurate measurements of eye length and surface curvature, necessary for cataract surgery.
Corneal Cross-Linking is an FDA approved procedure to treat mild to moderate keratoconus. Corneal collagen cross-linking, performed by Dr. Clarke, strengthens chemical bonds in the cornea with the goal of halting progression of the thinning and steepening of the cornea. Corneal cross-linking is also a promising technique for treating and stabilizing patients with certain corneal infections. It has been used as an off-label treatment for corneal infections that are not responding to antibiotics or anti-fungal treatments. Cross-linking has been successfully used to treat fungal and in certain cases, bacterial corneal infections.
is used to enhance astigmatism correction and facilitate the cataract surgery itself. Often this is used to optimize multifocal and astigmatism correcting intraocular implants. The Cassini topography detects astigmatism and high-order aberrations precisely and reproducibly with an unprecedented measuring accuracy. The data is then fed into the LENSAR laser by wireless transfer which enables the surgeon to adjust the lens exactly to the “true” axis of astigmatism. The technical options offered by LENSAR in combination with Cassini, literally allows our eye surgeons to ‘tailor’ your cataract surgery.
Dr. Gerald Clarke & Dr. Eric Larson have the absolute most state of the art equipment in the world for your blade-free laser vision correction procedures.
(Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) is a revolutionary new glaucoma treatment. This term refers to any surgery that involves creating a tiny incision to implant a microscopic device (e.g. the iStent Inject) and help reduce pressure inside the eye. The iStent Injectconsists of two very small, titanium stents (less than 0.5 mm) that are surgically implanted into the trabecular meshwork (the tissue that drains fluid away from the eye). The stents create tiny channels that fluid can drain through, which helps to lower eye pressure. Following the surgery, most patients are able to stop or reduce the number of eye drops they use to treat their glaucoma.
(Selective Light Therapy) is a laser treatment performed to reduce or eliminate the need for glaucoma drops. It’s a simple, yet highly effective, laser procedure that reduces the intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma. It is performed in the ASC (Ambulatory Surgical Center) and typically takes no longer than five minutes. SLT uses short pulses of low-energy light to target the melanin, or pigment, in specific cells of the affected eye. In response, the body’s natural healing mechanisms go to work to rebuild these cells. This rebuilding process improves drainage and lowers intraocular pressure.
(Laser Floater Removal) is a non-invasive laser procedure that can eliminate the visual disturbances caused by eye floaters. The goal of LFR is to achieve a “functional improvement”. That is, to allow you to return to “normal” day-to-day activities without the hindrance of floaters.LFR involves the application of nanosecond pulses of laser light to evaporate the vitreous opacities and to sever the vitreous strands.
