Key-Whitman Eye Center Uses Cutting Edge Technology for Eye Examinations
- Posted on: Feb 20 2012
When you schedule a routine eye examination at Key-Whitman Eye Center,
you can feel confident that your eye exam will be accurate. By using the
latest technologies, we can now determine the exact amount of “refractive
error”. This is used to prescribe the precise corrections needed
for your eyesight. Our doctors at Key-Whitman Eye Center can help you
become less dependent on glasses or contact lenses and offer the correct
procedure suited to treat your vision.
Key-Whitman Eye Center uses state-of-the-art technologies for eye examinations
and vision diagnostics. We use the EPIC refraction system from Marco Technologies.
The EPIC refraction system helps us to determine an accurate eyeglass
or contact lens prescription. The EPIC system provides an immediate comparison
between current refractive error and your old prescription, resulting
in a very accurate diagnosis of your vision. Apart from that, the process
is completed quickly, saving you time – an eye examination technology
in today’s fast paced world.
A regular eye examination is very important to help maintain your vision
and health. Key-Whitman Eye Center now offers Optomap Retinal photography
which can be included in your comprehensive eye examination for an additional
$20 fee. Retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal
holes and detachments, melanomas, cancer and diabetic retinopathy may
now be seen WITHOUT full dilation for most patients.
All patients are slightly dilated but there is no need to fully dilate
unless retinal problems are suspected or visualized during your eye exam
and Optos testing. The routine Optos photos are low resolution. If a problem
is discovered, high resolution images are taken with the same technology
and insurance should cover the additional expenses. These images are stored
within the patient’s electronic medical record for future comparisons.
Optomap Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. With
this eye exam you simply look into the device one eye at a time you will
experience a comfortable flash of light which indicates the image of your
retina has been taken. The biggest advantage of this exam is that it will
save and the image is available immediately on a computer screen so we
can review and discuss the results with you.
Key-Whitman Eye Center is always on the leading edge of eye care and vision
correction services. Please contact any of our offices for all your eye
care needs. We have offices located in Dallas, Arlington and Plano, Texas.
