Puzio Eyecare Associates is the first optometry practice on Cape Cod to introduce most of the state-of-the-art technology you will experience at our locations.
Utilization of appropriate advanced technology provides optimum medical assessment confidence with the most precise subjective and objective visual data collection possible.
The most common statement we hear from our patients is “Wow, I never had an examination like this before!”
Digital Retina Imaging (Optomap)
Captures a 180-degree digital image of the retina, in most cases, avoiding the inconvenience and light sensitivity of pupil dilating eye drops. This revolutionary Optomap technology allows the doctor and the patient to review the images and the comparison of past images chair-side. This quarter-of-a million-dollar technology has become one of the most important screening tests in eye care.
Computerized Objective Refraction
First developed by NASA, this instrument calculates the eyeglass prescription of the eye in less than one second. It is used as an accurate reference in the determination of the final prescription, and is extremely helpful in the examination of children and older adults.
Computerized Subjective Refraction
This new instrument avoids the historic difficult decisions when patients were asked, “Which lens is better…number one or number two?” This computerized exam splits the screen, presenting the two choices side-by-side for easy and confident comparison, thereby attaining precise prescriptions.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Obtains a 3-D cross-section of the retina, allowing us to better understand disease progression of the macula and optic nerve long before actual vision loss. Images are analyzed immediately and compared to a normal outcomes database. This technology has become the standard of care for patients with documented cautions, strong family histories, or used simply to monitor the effectiveness or timing of treatment.
Computerized Glaucoma Testing
Rather than using a glaucoma test that blasts air into the eye to determine eye pressure, we use a computerized pen-type instrument that gently (and without discomfort) touches the tear layer to determine accurate eye pressure.
One of the biggest challenges with getting a new pair of glasses is picking out the perfect frame. The Optikam Pad’s frame selection module allows you to compare up to four frames of your choosing to determine which one is truly the best fit for you. You can even email a photo to a friend for a second opinion!
Optikam’s patented measurement system is at the forefront of industry technology. In addition to providing extremely precise measurements, Optikam walks you through demonstrations of lenses options, including real-world virtual experiences, enabling us to truly cater lenses especially for you.
