The latest technology introduced at Eyes Focused on You is the Optomap by Optos. This ultra-widefield retinal imaging technology enables us to record more than 80% of the retina as opposed to the 15% previously possible with other digital technologies. This equipment enables us to capture a fast and painless image that can be instrumental in diagnosis and treatment of many conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, stroke, cancers such as melanoma, MS and many other diseases. Since our goal is to be proactive not reactive to disease, Optomap has become an integral part of your eye wellness exam.

We are excited to announce the arrival of our new digital imaging instrument from Nidek and Innova Medical. It combines the Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT- technology that we have used in the past with retinal photography for a more complete investigation of the retina.
This week a patient was in getting her spectacles and choosing her frame with our assistant. We noticed that she had difficulty walking around with pain in her foot. Our helpful assistant discussed MPS and the Dolphin to alleviate inflammation and pain in her feet.
