Do you suffer from headaches, neck pain, or 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, the 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 if a contoured prism prescription is right for you. The neurolens eyeglass prescription is aimed at relieving symptoms by bringing the eyes into proper alignment at all distances.

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 a 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 the 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 iWellness Exam Provides:

  • Detailed Sd-oct Scan Reports Are Needed to Show a Healthy Eye or Detect Early Signs of Disease.
  • Thickness Maps of the Retina and Ganglion Cell Complex Give Your Doctor Detailed Information That is 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 ages and provides your doctor with valuable information about the health of your most precious gift—your sight.

Are you suffering from symptoms of dry eye disease? Concourse Optometry is proud to offer the Antares Dry Eye Evaluation to diagnose and aid in the proper treatment recommendations. As a possible treatment, we are also proud to offer Lumenis patented Intense Pulse Light Therapy, which has proven to provide significant relief.

The definition of dry eye is a complicated one: "Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film and accompanied by ocular symptoms…"

Dry eye disease affects the surface of the eye and results in a loss of the normal balance of things that keep your eyes comfortable and clear. Tears spread across the cornea, or surface of the eye, with every blink. The amount and quality of one’s tears are essential for one’s eyes. On the surface of the eyes, there are many parts that work together in harmony. For example, muscles, nerves, glands, tear ducts, and connective tissue all play a role in keeping the eyes moist. Dry eye disease usually occurs when one of these factors is out of balance. This actually causes an imbalance with other factors, perpetuating the cycle of dry eye disease.

The risk of developing dry eye disease increases with age. Women are more likely to develop the condition compared with men. However, dry eye disease is becoming increasingly common in younger people with more device use, like smartphones, laptops, and tablets, than ever before. Increasing device, and smartphone, use has made dry eyes more prominent than ever before. According to research, over 16 million Americans have dry eyes. However, this number may be significantly higher. Those who develop the disease can experience problems with daily activities like reading, watching television, using the computer and mobile phones, dealing with work, and driving.
