Suffer from headaches, neck pain and or eye strain? Associates in Eyecare is proud to be the first Optometry group in the Northern VA area to offer this innovative solution for our patients.
neurolenses® are the first and only prescription lenses that add a contoured prism to bring the eyes into alignment. Contoured prism has been shown in studies to relieve the headaches, neck/shoulder pain and eyestrain that many people experience when using digital devices, reading or doing detail work.
Contact one of our offices to schedule an appointment to see if neurolenses are an option for you.
OPTOS Retinal Exam
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Our office offers the Optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of your comprehensive eye exam. The Optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is unique and provides the doctors with a wide view to look at the health of your retina.
Many eye diseases and problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
Our doctors highly recommend this scanning technology to all patients no matter what age. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image has been taken.
An Optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A comprehensive eye health examination without having your eyes dilated in most cases.
- A scan to detect eye diseases.
- An extensive view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT allows your doctor to effectively see a three-dimensional cross-section of the tissue of the eye. By examining the layers of this image, your doctor can see indications of vision problems that would not normally be visible, resulting in early diagnosis and treatment.
Because your local eye doctor is independently owned and operated, the availability of some new instruments and diagnostic equipment may vary.
