Facilities and Equipment

THE SMART MIRROR (TM)

The Frame Selection
We offer the Smart Mirror advantage to help our patients better select their eyewear. This system allows patients to view themselves in up to four different frame styles at one time! The freeze frame poses are especially helpful for people who cannot see themselves in a conventional mirror without their glasses.

Colored Contact Lenses
The Smart Mirror also allows patients to view themselves wearing a wide variety of colored lenses, all without the trouble of trying each one on-just like magic!

ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS (EMR)

All patient encounters are fully documented electronically chair side at the time of the examination. An EMR system assures that care is consistently delivered at the highest level, and all findings are completely and accurately noted. When indicated, reports can be generated immediately to patients, their primary care physicians, or to specialists when referrals are made for continuing care.
