Technology to Customize Your Eye Care Experience

During a comprehensive eye exam at Crystal Vision Clinic, we use a suite of technology to understand your unique vision and the overall health of your eyes. This technology can make viewing all angles of the eye much easier, which helps with diagnosing eye conditions and diseases and refractive errors.

Our technological tools and devices assist us during every step of our exams and treatments, including dry eye treatment, contact lens fittings, and myopia management. Our goal is to provide you with the eye care you deserve, and our technology helps us provide a personalized level of customizable care.

Visit us for an eye exam and let our technology help increase your understanding of your eye health.

Understanding Your Vision with Technology

Each technological tool that we use in our practice has a specific benefit that helps us understand your vision and eye health—so we know what your eyes need. Our tech helps with diagnosing eye conditions, finding vision problems, and measuring your eyes for contacts or frames.

The results we receive from our technology help us guide you toward the proper next steps for your eye care journey.

Our Technological Tools

We use a variety of technological devices and tools to assist us with providing personalized and accurate eye care. These tools include retinal imaging devices that can create detailed images and modern measurement and tracking technology, which helps us efficiently get accurate information about your ocular health and vision status.

With our technology, we are able to see important aspects of your vision that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is an imaging technique that helps map out the surface of the eye (the cornea). With this mapping technology, we can look at areas where your cornea may be misshapen or where there may be uneven curvature.

In our practice, we use the Oculus Keratograph 5M. Our corneal topography device looks like a large bowl with white circles and lights inside of it, sort of like a bullseye. This works like a mirror to reflect light back into a map of your corneal structure.

Corneal topography can be an essential tool in the diagnosis of corneal eye conditions, such as astigmatism or keratoconus. It is also important for contact lens fittings, where the shape of the cornea is an important measurement for fitting contact lenses to your unique eyes.

Retinal imaging essentially involves taking a scan of your eye to create a detailed image of your retina.

Ultra-widefield retinal imaging using the Optos device helps us analyze the peripheral area of the retina that is not always captured during retinal imaging. With ultra-widefield retinal imaging, we can see about 200 degrees of the retinal surface, which can be essential for diagnosing eye conditions and diseases that affect the retina, including diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.

Fundus photography involves taking an image of your retina using a fundus camera by looking through your pupil into the back of your eye.

A fundus camera can use a combination of light, reflection, and lenses to capture detailed images of your retina in color and can provide insights that assist with the diagnosis of eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.

Your visual field is the area that is visible to your eye when fixed on an object in one direction. Visual field testing measures your eyes’ ability to see within your visual field and how much of that vision may be lost and creating blind spots.

At our practice, we use the Humphrey Visual Field test to examine your visual field and look for diseases like glaucoma. In this test, you focus on one central point and press a button when you can see objects in your peripheral vision and throughout your visual field.

Artisan iOn progressive lenses can provide personalization for your sight. They’re made by first mapping your unique gaze patterns using the artisan headset.

Using your gaze patterns, a personalized lens can be created based on your individual vision needs. These customized lenses can help provide a distortion-free experience—so you can view your environment more fully.

We use OptiKam technology to get detailed measurements for your frame fittings. OptiKam utilizes an iPad and connected app to provide 10 different facial measurements needed for a great eyewear fit.

OptiKam takes your posture and how your frames will be worn into account to understand your lifestyle when taking measurements.
