Our State-of-the-Art Optometry Office
We are proud to offer our patients a state-of-the-art facility. When we opened the office in 1985, we made a commitment to the people of Camarillo to keep current with the latest in products and services. We continue to upgrade and maintain our facility and diagnostic capabilities, on a regular basis.
Comfort and Caring
How would you like to experience a doctor’s office that doesn’t feel like a doctor’s office! We believe most people do not enjoy the feeling of being in a doctor’s office and would rather be at home. We kept this idea in mind when we designed the office: from the coffee and drink bar, to the children’s play area, to the fire place, to the calming pictures in our exam rooms. It is our intention to make you feel comfortable, calm, relaxed and cared for when you come in for your visit.
Our optical boutique was designed with comfort, style, and technology in mind. Fashion and function are the key words to describe what we are trying to offer to meet your optical needs. Our frames are hand chosen by the best manufacturers and we display them in a orderly way to make your selections less stressful. Of course, our optical experts will be there to guide you every step of the way to ensure you find the perfect frame. We offer the most advanced lenses to help you see and look your best while at the same time maximizing durability. We have invested in the latest technology and trained our staff to ensure your prescription is made right. Our industry leading warranties allow you to purchase with confidence. Our state-of-the-art equipment measures and refines your optical prescription in a more accurate and efficient manner than traditional vision testing has been capable of in the past.
Computerized vision testing: Our office utilizes advanced computer assisted instruments to tests all aspects of the optics of your eyes including higher order aberrations to determine how to maximize your sight.
Optical Coherence Tomography is a state of the art diagnostic test that allow us to visualize cross sectional scans of structures of the eye including the retina, optic nerve, cornea and iris using very safe visible light. Similar in diagnostic ability to MRI for general body conditions the images received from the OCT help us diagnose and manage eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
Retinal Imaging: We have two technologies to capture high resolution retinal images.
The Optos Daytona captures high resolution 200 degree wide angle views of the retina utilizing low intensity scanning laser technology. We utilize this instrument to diagnose and manage conditions of the retina. This technology decreases the need and frequency we have to dilate the eyes.
Canon Digital Fundus Camera takes high resolution and high magnification images of the most vital structures of the eye including the macula and optic nerve.
Threshold Visual Field Testing: We have chosen to use the Octopus technology, which originated in Switzerland, because of its precision and speed. This makes testing most accurate and comfortable for our patients. This test is most useful in detecting and treating glaucoma and managing and understanding neurological conditions that affect the eyes.
Slit Lamp Biomicroscope: We utilize this instrument daily to examine the eye in 3-D under very high magnification. We are able to diagnose subtle conditions that affect the well being of your eyes and your precious sight with this instrument.
Gonioscopy uses a mirrored instrument to examine the internal fluid drainage structures of the eye which are vital to maintain proper fluid pressure in the eye.
Visually Evoked Potential and Electroretinogram: This technology allows us to assess the health of the retina and the neurological pathway to the brain. Having this information allows us to assess the severity of progression of conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Also we are able to diagnose conditions like glaucoma as much as eight years sooner than what can be done with any other piece of equipment.
