No More Air Puff!
Yes! You read that correctly! It's 2021 and time that we rid you of the aged-old air puff test! We can't wait to show you our new office toy!
Our office has newly implemented iWellness screening technology that helps to aid in early detection of conditions like macular degeneration and glaucoma!
At Eden Prairie Eye Care we utilize the latest technology in eye care to provide you with an advanced comprehensive eye exam. Using our digital eye exam software we can accurately and efficiently measure your refraction for new glasses and contact lenses. Allow us to take the stress away from the age-old question "which is better. 1 or 2?" With our automated phoropter, we can reduce the number of comparisons to reach our final goal of helping you see to the best of your ability. In addition to the refraction, our doctors will spend time evaluating the health and wellness of your eyes. The Clarifye Exam℠ allows us to analyze the health of the eye with ease while providing us with images to help our patients visualize the conditions we may encounter during our exam.
An eye exam is not complete without an adequate view inside the back of the eye to view your retinal health. That is why our doctors at Eden Prairie Eye Care are dedicated to providing you with alternatives to dilating drops that leave your vision blurry for a few hours after the exam. We our proud to announce the addition of the Optomap retinal imaging software. The Optomap has the ability to provide us with a clear, wider view into the periphery of the back of your eyes, enabling us to catch many common conditions before they become vision threatening. At both offices we can capture photos of the retina, giving us the ability to detect common diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, and cancer. In addition, it provides a permanent record of the retina for us to make comparisons from year to year.
They say "the eyes are the window to your soul", but did you know they are also the window to your overall health? Our doctors at Eden Prairie Eye Care will take the time to evaluate the health of your eyes and check for related systemic conditions that are often first diagnosed by your eye doctor. For example, did you know that just by looking at the blood vessels of the retina, your eye doctor has the ability to spot signs of uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes? That's right, an eye exam is importance to importantll health than just providing you with a new prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
