“Modern Eyecare With Old Fashioned Caring”
“Testing your vision” is more than just reading the eye chart. Modern Eyecare means using the most advanced technology available to us today.
Your Vision Analysis:
This begins with detailed medical history. Then by using a computer we can calculate your spectacle correction. Color vision and depth perception are tested as well as your blood pressure. An FDT Field Analyzer will allow us to screen every patients visual field. Contact lens previous and new wearers are all scanned with a corneal topographer. This enables the Doctor to better fit the person, understanding the peaks and valley’s of someone’s cornea. Our two fully equipt examination rooms allows us to evaluate your internal eye health.
Our high tech room contains the Visual Field Machine, Fundus Camera and GDx Scanning Laser.
The Visual Field Machine allows us to better detect and follow vision loss caused by eye diseases such as glaucoma, and other neurological problems.
The Fundus Camera can take a digital picture of the eye to provide proper documentation.
The GDx Scanning Laser is one of the newest instrument’s. It allows us to determine if someone has glaucoma up to 5 years sooner than conventional methods.
Once the examination is completed, the Doctor will discuss in detail the findings. If spectacles are needed, you will then be escorted to our dispensary, which has over 700 frames to choose from.
Old Fashioned Caring:
Once in the dispensary, we take the time to carefully select the lenses and frames that best fit your lifestyle needs.
An Advantage Like No Other:
As far as we know, we are the only office in the Lowcountry with a Lens Vision System. Taking two hours to select a frame is now a thing of the past. This unique computer allows you to see your new frames and how you look in them, before you make your purchase. If you want to change the color of your eyes, this computer imaging system, now allows you to do so without putting the contact lenses on.
Light eyes or dark eyes, now you can see how you would look in blue, green, aqua, hazel or even violet just to name a few. With our computer eye imaging system, “its a snap”
We stock over 700 spectacle frames, as well as over 100 pair of sunglasses including Costa Del Mar. Frames and nose pads turning green? Not anymore, with titanium frames from Seiko, guaranteed 100% hypo-allergenic, lightweight and durable too! We also carry a large selection of designer frames such as: Guess, Candies, Harley Davidson, Lilly Pulitzer, Rampage, Thalia, Avalon, Republica and Easy Twist so just come in and check them out!
Our highly trained staff will explain the various options available. Your needs are important and specialty lenses can better address those needs. Let’s look at a few:

New anti-glare coatings are a must and better than ever.
