Do you suffer from headaches, neck pain, and eye strain? Relief is in Sight! Concourse Optometry is proud to introduce the neurolens measurement test. This test is performed in less than 3 minutes during your comprehensive eye exam. The test measures the degree of misalignment at distance and near. When the eyes are not in alignment, the brain must do the work to compensate for the eyes being out of sync with each other. The additional work puts stress on the trigeminal nerve (largest nerve in the brain. The trigeminal nerve is responsible for the majority of head, eye, and shoulder sensations.The neurolens test results will guide us in determining if you have a misalignment in your vision and to see if a contoured prism prescription is right for you. The neurolens eyeglass prescription is aimed to relieve symptoms by bringing the eyes into proper alignment at all distances.

 

 

iWellnessExam-05

 

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health.  In our continuing efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Concourse Optometry is proud to announce the inclusion of the iWellnessExam as an important part of our complete eye examination.  Similar to an MRI or CT scan for the eye, the iWellnessExam uses spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to produce cross sectional images of the retinal layers  – which is sensitive area of the back of your eye – in a matter of seconds.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress without symptoms.  In early stages, you may not even notice a change in your vision.   But sight threatening conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and others can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina, including the iWellnessExam.

 

The iWellnessExam provides:

  • Detailed SD-OCT scan reports to show a healthy eye or detect early signs of disease.
  • Thickness maps of the retina and ganglion cell complex giving your doctor detailed information simply not available with other methods.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss your iWellnessExam scan reports with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your file, which allows Dr. Julie Chen to compare your iWellnessExam scan reports each year to look for changes.

 

The iWellnessExam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all age and provides your doctor with valuable information about the health of your most precious gift – your sight.
