The Marco AutoRefractor (pictured to the right) allows the staff collect information that will help the doctor determine the curvature of the front of the eye which in turn allows the doctor to determine the patient's prescription with the most precision.
The Kowa Digital Fundus Camera (pictured in the center) allows the staff to photograph the internal structures of the eye. These photos become a permanent part of the patient's medical record and helps the doctors determine if the eye is free of disease. This test can often be done without eye drops to dilate the eyes.
The Humphrey frequency doubling technology (FDT) perimeter (pictured to the left) allows the staff to screen rapidly for any side or peripheral vision loss. Its is a quick and easy way to screen for vision loss from glaucoma or neurological disease.
Each examination room is equipped with the latest testing instrumentation that allows the doctors to perform a comprehensive eye examination. The rooms also have specialized instruments for the examination of infants, young children, and elderly patients.

Each room is fully computerized for electronic medical records and allows the doctor to review and share with the patient the Digital Fundus Photo taken in the pretesting area.
