Our office utilizes the newest automated refractive equipment. This makes it significantly easier and quicker for patients to have their glass prescription checked. We also provide Optomap retinal photographs which allow photos of your retina to be taken in pretesting and displayed and shown to you while you are with the doctor. The doctors use electronic medical records. This provides the most accurate recording of your examination and testing results.
