New iCare Avoids Dreaded Air Puff

One of the least appreciated aspects of an eye exam is the air puff test. Testing the eye pressure gives the doctor invaluable information. An eye pressure that is too high or too low can threaten vision. With the new icare tonometer, the doctor and clinical staff can check your eye pressure quickly, painlessly, and accurately. 

 

Heart Of America Eye Care Congress

Heart of America Eye Care Congress

With the core values of commaraderie, education, and innovation, the Heart of America Eye Care Congress is an excellent opportunity for making connections with other professionals in the industry to improve our ability to serve patients. The doctors and staff are attending the 2018 HOAECC this weekend, and are excited about the new connections being made with other professionals as well as new information learned. The exhibit hall is hopping with the latest equipment available, and there are plenty of frames representatives available to explore new options for our inventory. 

When we return to the office on Monday, ask about our weekend away--we'd be happy to share with you some of the new and exciting things we learned! 

Technology

Only the best technology is used in treatment of your eyes. Come on in to check them out.

Unfortunately one of the most remembered things about an eye exam is the air puff test. This test is important as it measures the pressure inside your eye. Too much pressure or too little pressure can lead to blindness. Our new instruments to measure eye pressure are called Icare tonometers. We have two of these at our office, which allow us to measure the pressure without the dreaded air puff. These require no drops, no puff of air, and they can be used with soft contact lenses in. They are also more accurate and repeatable than the air puff test. 

 Another piece of new equipment is our Optical Coherence Tomograph, or OCT, utilizes a lazer light in a similar manner to an ultrasound scan.  It allows us to scan the eyeball with resolution of six micrometers (6/1000 of a milimeter).  This allows us to more carefully monitor eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and many others. 

Just Arrived

In April our entire staff and Drs' attended a two day learning session with the renowned Williams Marketing.  Williams Marketing is the world wide leader in eye care practice management.  Our cotinued relationship with Williams Marketing means that we can offer our family of patients the most enhanced patient care in the frame work of a premium eye care facility.

 

We are so excited for Dr. LaPierre and his wife Lucy as they welcomed their first grandchild, Lincoln in June!

 

Dr. LaPierre would like to thank his friends and patients for selecting him for the 12th time as Readers' Choice Favorite Optometrist again this year.

 

In August we had a lot of fun celebrating Dr. Sharpe and his wife Heather's son Jaces' second birthday!!!
