Eye Health Technology

At Family Eye Care, we have been providing exceptional eye care services for over 25 years. Using the latest diagnostic technology, we ensure our patients receive the best possible treatment for their needs.

Here are some of the advanced eye health technologies we use:

Digital retinal imaging

At Family Eye Care, we use digital retinal imaging to capture high-resolution images of the back of your eye, including the retina and optic nerve. This technology allows us to detect and monitor various eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration at an early stage. By having a detailed view of your retina, we can track changes over time and provide proactive treatment when necessary.

Optical coherence tomography

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is another advanced technology we use at Family Eye Care. This imaging technique provides high-resolution cross-sectional images of the layers of the retina, allowing us to diagnose and manage conditions like macular holes, diabetic macular edema, and age-related macular degeneration. With OCT, we can track changes in the eye over time and make informed decisions about your eye health.

Visual field testing

Visual field testing is an essential tool for evaluating your peripheral vision (or side vision) and detecting any blind spots or abnormalities. At Family Eye Care, we use advanced visual field testing equipment to assess how well your eyes can see across different areas of your visual field. This test is crucial for diagnosing conditions such as glaucoma and optic nerve damage. By regularly performing visual field testing during your check-ups, we can track changes in your vision and ensure early intervention if necessary.


An autorefractor is a device used to measure how well your eyes focus light on the retina. This automated instrument quickly determines your eyeglass prescription by analyzing how light reflects off your retina. The autorefractor provides us with valuable information about any refractive errors you may have, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness. By using an autorefractor during your exam at Family Eye Care, we can accurately assess your vision needs and prescribe corrective lenses tailored to your exact vision needs.
