At Perspective Eyecare your comprehensive eye examination with Dr. Kennedy will last around 30 minutes. The examination includes preliminary testing, a refraction and a complete evaluation of eye health, including tests for cataracts and glaucoma.
A contact lens exam is available with your comprehensive eye exam. The contact lens exam is required annually for contact lens wearers and evaluates your eye health in relation to your contact lenses. Your contact lens exam includes your trial contact lenses and 30 days of follow up visits while Dr. Kennedy is helping you to find the best lenses to correct your vision.
Perspective Eyecare is affiliated with TLC for laser vision correction procedures. TLC performs the laser correction procedure, but all follow up visits can be done in our office. For more information about TLC, please visit their website at TLCVision.
The Burton Velo Auto-refractor uses an infrared beam to objectively measure a patient’s prescription for glasses. This gives Dr. Kennedy a great starting point to begin the refraction, making it easier and quicker.
Fundus Photography allows us to use a specialized camera to see a larger area of the interior of your eye: the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole (i.e. the fundus). This allows diagnosis, progression tracking and basic analysis of your eye.
The iCare Tonometer is the latest technology for testing the pressure of the eyes. This fantastic, handheld device uses NO AIR and requires NO DROPS. By far, the best “puff test” you’ll ever experience!
The Oculus Easyfield Visual Fields Analyzer is used to plot the peripheral visual field. Patients are screened with the Field Analyzer to aid in early detection of mini-strokes and other neurological disorders as well as glaucoma.
