ClearVision Optometry's optometrists and opticians have built their practice on continuing feedback from clients. They've loaded their gallery of frames with autoflex metals and colorful plastics from names such as Versace, Coach, and Tres Jolie. To fully accommodate clients, the opticians can cut and seat lenses in-house.
During eye exams, computerized equipment precisely measures how well patients can see or roll their eyes at bad jokes. Automatic refractors measure current prescriptions, and retinal photography creates digital records of the eyes to compare with future images.
Virginia Eye Consultants has been championing clear vision since 1963 and today tweaks imperfect peepers with the help of high-tech tools and a skilled staff. To determine candidacy for the Lasik procedure, each prospective patient undergoes a consultation, which includes initial measurements, a video about the procedure, and a meeting with one of the practice's seven doctors. In the Lasik procedure, a doctor painlessly creates a small flap in the cornea with the WaveLight FS200 laser, then reshapes the cornea using cool ultraviolet light. When all vision problems have been corrected, the flap is put back into place and quickly heals on its own, much like a lizard's tail or a movie star's ego. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes, and vision should notably improve within two hours. Some patients experience discomfort for the first day but it typically is mild.
