Stress-Free Eye Exams with the Topcon CV-5000S

eye exams made easy in Clarksville TN

This state of the exam phoropter means our patients have a much more pleasant and stress-free eye exam. This is because of the digital machine learning technology, which allows the device to gauge how well your eyes are seeing with exceptional accuracy.

Eye exams used to be a pain. You couldn’t blink as you sat perfectly still, trying to choose between two nearly identical views through an old fashioned phoropter. ― All that’s now a thing of the past. With our eye exam technology, you no longer have to choose between 1 and 2 ― the machine does that for you automatically and blinking is never a problem.

What’s more, this device also detects if you have night vision issues automatically, ensuring that you get exactly the vision correction you need.

TearLab Technology

Tear lab - dry eye - detection in all eyes vision care in clarksville tn Tear osmolarity has been shown to have the best predictive value for diagnosing Dry Eye Disease of any single test. TearLab's sophisticated lab on a chip technology tests a tiny tear sample to measure Osmolarity, or the salt content in the tears. Our Clarksville eye doctor will test both eyes, and will take the highest number of the two tests, to generate Your Osmolarity Number. Your Osmolarity Number gives doctors a meaningful measure of the health and stability of the protective tear film that covers the surface of your eyes. The number generated correlates with the severity of the disease.

Equipped with the TearLab Osomolarity System, we can now use quantitative data at the point of care to aid in the diagnosis of DED and to improve our ability to manage these patients.

BlephEx

Blepex-dry-eye-treatment at all eyes vision care in clarksville tnBlephEx is a painless in-practice procedure performed by Dr. Ely. A revolutionary new patented BlephEx hand piece is used to very precisely spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids.

The patented micro-sponge is disposable and a clean one is used for each individual eyelid so bacteria are not spread between the lids. The eyes are rinsed well afterwards.

The procedure lasts about 6 -8 minutes and is well tolerated. Most patients simply report a tickling sensation. A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort.

After the procedure, the patient is instructed on how to maintain their clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. Since home treatments are only semi-effective, the procedure is typically repeated at 4-6 month intervals.

Fundus Camera

A fundus, or retinal camera, at all eyes vision care in clarksville tn

A fundus, or retinal camera, is a specialized microscope with an attached camera designed to photograph the central retina, optic disc and macula.

The resulting photograph is a high resolution magnified image which can help to assess for eye conditions including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, optic nerve disease, and many others. This picture also gives us a baseline to compare the state of your eye health in the future.

Optometric Slit Lamps

Optometric Slit Lamps at all eyes vision care in clarksville tnThe slit-lamp exam allows the doctor to see areas at the front of the eye. These areas include your eyelids, conjunctiva, iris, lens, sclera and your cornea. Other areas visible with the slit-lamp test are the retina and optic nerve. This exam allows the doctor to examine the eye for abnormalities or problems. A slit lamp provides a three dimensional view of the anatomical parts of the eye and magnification of these different structures through the use of a beam of light during an optometric exam. Clarksville optometrists use slit lamps to identify disorders, infection or any other complications offering a more interactive approach to documenting an eye exam.

Digital Retinal Imaging & OCT Scans

We use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina.

This is very important in assisting your Optometrist to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.

The advantages of digital imaging include:

  • Quick, safe, non-invasive and painless
  • Provides detailed images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes
  • Provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue
  • Image resolution is extremely high quality
  • Uses eye-safe near-infra-red light
  • No patient prep required

Digital Retinal Imaging

Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.

iScan Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT )

iScan Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT ) at all eyes vision care in clarksville tniScan OCT offers all of the scans available on a traditional OCT with the added benefit of simplified operation. Scan acquisition is as easy as positioning the patient, choosing the scan and pushing start. iScan performs all of the focus and alignment operations while talking the patient through the entire exam. One of the key benefits of iScan is that it provides early detection of problems, both visual and general health related. Early detection allows patients to take action, whether that is medication, surgery or lifestyle changes, often allowing a problem to be rectified before it develops or worsens.

 

An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.

A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to an CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.

With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.

An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact our office to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment.

Visual Field Testing

A visual field test measures the range of your peripheral or “side” vision to assess whether you have any blind spots (scotomas), peripheral vision loss or visual field abnormalities. It is a straightforward and painless test that does not involve eye drops but does involve the patient's ability to understand and follow instructions.

An initial visual field screening can be carried out by the optometrist by asking you to keep your gaze fixed on a central object, covering one eye and having you describe what you see at the periphery of your field of view. For a more comprehensive assessment, special equipment might be used to test your visual field. In one such test, you place your chin on a chin rest and look ahead. Lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating. Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 15-45 minutes. These machines can create a computerized map out your visual field to identify if and where you have any deficiencies.
