Advanced Preventive Screening:

We are focused on preventive health and this technology helps our doctors detect medical issues earlier

The Optos Daytona:

Optos patented ultra-widefield scanning laser technology supports the detection, diagnosis, analysis, documentation and management of ocular pathology and systemic disease that may first present in the periphery.

These conditions may go undetected using traditional exam techniques and equipment.

The Daytona delivers both ultra-widefield and ultra-high-resolution images to facilitate disease detection, management, and clinical analysis from central pole to periphery. The Optos Daytona offers multiple wavelength imaging, including options for color, red-free, and autofluorescence with green laser light. Our doctors strongly recommend this technology for all patients at each comprehensive examination.

  • Unequaled 200° retina view
  • Quick, easy and comfortable
  • Cutting edge technology
  • Co-management with patients specialists
  • Management of patients with pathology
  • High-resolution, high-contrast image
  • 82% of the retina in one image
  • Small pupil patient friendly capture
  • Pupil dilation not necessary

iVue OCT

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) allows our doctors to evaluate the retina and optic nerve for disease and monitor for change over time. Using the OCT, our doctors can see all the different layers of the retina to evaluate retinal conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and macular edema. OCT is also the standard of care for diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, as it can detect subtle damage to the optic nerve as well as nerve fiber layer loss in the retina. The iVue OCT can also image the anterior chamber angle to assess for narrowing which can increase glaucoma risk. It also allows us to measure the corneal thickness in a painless, non-invasive way to better assess risk for glaucoma damage.

Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, our practice has incorporated the iWellnessExam™ SD- OCT retinal scan as part of our comprehensive eye exams.

Like an MRI of the eye, but totally painless and taking only seconds to perform, the iWellnessExam™ provides high definition cross sections of your retina which can reveal ocular anatomy and signs of disease in exquisite and stunning detail.

The iWellnessExam™ technology allows our doctors to see with unprecedented clarity what is invisible with traditional examination methods. We recommend this technology for all patients over the age of 30.

MPOD Testing

Cary Family Eye Care proudly introduces the latest cutting-edge technological advance in caring for the eye health of its patients, the Quantifeye MPOD test, in our fight against macular degeneration. This amazing technology helps to check your eyes’ natural defenses against blue light by measuring your macular pigment. Your macular pigment is found in the center of the macula, the area of the retina responsible for your central and detail vision. Made up of two unique substances called lutein and zeaxanthin, macular pigment acts as a sort of ‘internal sunglasses,’ that play a vital role in protecting the macula against the harmful effects of blue light, which usually comes from electronics such as smartphones, television, and computer screens, as well as from the sun.

The density of each person’s macular pigment varies and has even been known to change over time in the same person based on age and dietary factors. Many clinical trials and studies have been conducted with a focus on the measurement of macular pigment and how macular pigment density may be connected to one’s risk of developing macular degeneration. In many of these trials, a link was found between a low macular pigment optical density (MPOD) and elevated risk for developing macular degeneration, while a high macular pigment optical density was linked not only to a reduction in one’s risk for macular degeneration but also to an improvement in overall visual performance. Benefits that are linked to a high MPOD are better contrast sensitivity, improved visual acuity and reduced glare. If low macular pigment levels are detected, it is possible to increase this score by improving dietary intake of certain foods or by taking specific nutritional supplements. The QuantifEye MPOD test can help track the score as we monitor for improvement over time. This test is recommended for all patients over the age of 30.

OCULUS Myopia Master®

Refraction, Axial Length and Keratometry
The new Myopia Master® is the first device to combine the important measurement parameters for making myopia management much easier and more reliable than ever. Other risk factors, such as ethnicity, number of myopic parents as well as time spent with near-vision and outdoor activities influence the growth of the eye and should also be recorded initially in children.

Myopia Management Redefined
Being able to detect myopia at an early stage before it develops is extremely important. In cooperation with the Brien Holden Vision Institute, the values measured are compared with age-related normative data derived from a database of about 25 000 eyes. The growth curve makes it possible to compare the individual measurement with normative data. The earlier an abnormality trend is recognized, the more efficiently it can counteracted with appropriate treatments.

The diagram shows both axial length and refraction (spherical equivalents) of an individual patient’s measurement in an easy-to-understand way. The growth curves support the data interpretation.

A traffic light scale indicates the estimated risk of developing myopia.

Lumenis Optima IPL:

Intense Pulsed Light (abbreviated IPL) describes the use of intense pulses of non-coherent light distributed over a range of wavelengths; from 400nm to 1200nm. The technology utilizes specific wavelength ranges to target various chromophores in the skin. This enables effective treatment of a broad spectrum of conditions. Optima IPL is a drug free, drop free light-based treatment, which targets the root causes – chronic inflammation.

Optima IPL treats periocular inflammatory conditions such as Rosacea and telangiectasia and is an extremely effective treatment for chronic dry eye. IPL treatment reduces the signs and symptoms of dry eye and can reduce dependence on other dry eye treatments such as eye drops.

Systane iLux:

The iLux® Device is indicated for the application of localized heat and pressure therapy in adult patients with chronic disease of the eyelids, including Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), also known as evaporative dry eye. Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) is a chronic disease and to date, has no permanent cure. It visualizes treatment zones to target blocked meibomian glands. The device uses carefully precise levels of heat and pressure that come together for effective MGD treatment that takes only 8-12 minutes.
