At Stack Optical, we are pleased to announce the acquisition of our new Topcon TRC-NW6 digital retina camera. This special camera, which is now standard in our regular eye exams, is a digital retinal camera used to take pictures of the back of the eye(retina) the doctor uses it for early diagnosis, of many diseases; glaucoma, macular degeneration, hypertension, diabetes, and many more. As we all know, early prevention is the best treatment for most diseases and that includes those of they eye. By detecting early any possible health issues with your vision, we can get a head start on the problem.
Even with all of the most modern optical equipment in the world, though, the most important thing about any eye exam is the time and care that the eye doctor puts into it. Beware of the chain store mentality, advertising ‘free’ eye exams and such – since we all know nothing is free, what is most likely to suffer in a free eye exam ? The time and care that goes into it. That is why at Stack Optical, we take our time to be sure that we can understand your personal vision history; any recent new changes or symptoms with your eyesight; checking for glaucoma, macular degeneration, and any possible vision or eye health issues unique to you. That is the Stack difference.
The Small Pupil Detection feature allows us to see if you have a smaller than normal pupil, a common phenomenon, especially if mydriatic (dialating) drops can not be used. This allows to still take a clear picture of the back of your eye and retina, without using a special feature or dialating procedure. This means more comfort during your eye exam and less recovery after your eye exam.
