Family Eye Care Services is proud to present our patients with the most highly advanced technologies in retinal evaluation

Early Detection is crucial.

Macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, ocular melanoma as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure which can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina.

Because we continuously strive to provide to our patients the very best in eye care services, we are proud to offer the following tests:

Optomap Retinal Exam

  • An overview map of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view that cannot be achieved by other means.
  • Testing is quick, your vision is not blurred, and a baseline is established for future comparison.

CellCheck Specular Microscopy

Specular Microscopy

Early Detection of Contact Lens Problems is Critical!

Specular Microscopy is performed on all our contact lens patients at no additional charge as part of their annual contact lens evaluation. In the never-ending battle to minimize the impact of contact lens materials and lens hygiene, specular microscopy provides a highly detailed view of the integrity and distress of the cornea from the endothelium. Like the “canary in the coal mine”, the endothelium can be an invaluable indicator of contact lens-related corneal distress.

LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment

The LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation System is the only FDA cleared device to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction which plays a role in 86% of Dry Eye. It consists of a Console and a single-use sterile device, known as the Activator, and has a drug-free mechanism of action. Eye care professionals use the LipiFlow System to treat MGD patients in-office with confidence and efficiency.

The Lipiflow System represents more than 10 years of dedicated research and is protected by more than 30 patents. A phased pressure profile with adaptive force equalization and proximal-to-distal peristaltic motion evacuates gland contents as the inner lid is gently heated.
