Technology in our office
In our office we pride ourselves in offering the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment of many eye diseases. The cutting-edge instruments at our office enable us to diagnose and treat many eye diseases before they threaten sight.
Clarity Eye Care is proud to offer LipiFlow treatments in our office. This state-of-the-art procedure removes blockages from the Meibomian glands, the main structure responsible for evaporative dry eye disease. LipiFlow is the only electronic device cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of Meibomian gland dysfunction with clinical studies that demonstrate safety and effectiveness. This 12-minute in-office procedure can be life-changing for patients who suffer from chronic and progressive ocular surface disease.
Optomap Retinal Imaging
At Clarity Eye Care, we recommend Optomap retinal imaging as a part of your comprehensive eye exam. This advanced imaging system captures a wide-field image of the inside of the eye. This image can often be used as an alternative to dilation in many patients. It also provides the doctor with a photo record of your eye so that changes in the eye can be detected easier over time.
Optomap images are captured quickly and easily. Dr. Armitage reviews these images with patients in their examination to better illustrate changes that may happen inside the eyes. Save yourself time and stress of dilation with Optomap images at your next visit.
The Cirrus OCT is an advanced piece of equipment our doctors may use to help diagnose more advanced problems with the inside of the eye. OCT images are similar to an ultrasound of the inside of the eye, and can assist with diagnosis and tracking of diseases on a microscopic level- sometimes even before the disease would affect vision.
This unique imaging method is quick and painless to the patient and can help our doctors diagnose disease before it causes severe vision loss.
The Oculus Keratograph 5M is a newer piece of technology at Clarity Eye Care. It is a specialized type of Corneal Topographer, which creates a map of the front part of the eye. This instrument is used in our office for imaging of the Meibomian glands on the inner eye lids at most comprehensive eye exams. It can also be used for early diagnosis of diseases affecting the cornea, such as Keratoconus.
