Our Technology

Not long ago, re-shaping the cornea with a precise laser beam using data as unique as a fingerprint would have been considered science fiction. Today, this type of laser vision correction surgery happens routinely. At Medical Eye Center, advanced technology and modern diagnostic screenings can help nearly everyone achieve their best possible vision.

Custom Cataract Surgery

Medical Eye Center continues its tradition of being a leader in cataract surgery by utilizing the first Crystalens and ReStor intra-ocular lens implants. Through Custom Cataract Surgery Drs. Paul Jorizzo, Matt Oliva, John Welling, and Helen Koenigsman, and Poorav Patel can now improve both distance and reading vision without glasses for a wide range of patients. Learn more…

Blade-Free LASIK

Drs. Matt Oliva and John Welling use the all-laser IntraLase method to perform blade-free LASIK procedures treating the two main causes of vision error. Our laser is customizable to your unique needs. Learn more…

Diagnostic Screening

Diagnostic screenings of the eye have improved dramatically, thanks a variety of new tools that allow our doctors to provide each patient with the best possible visual outcome.

Optos Imaging System

Medical Eye Center made the first U.S. non-military purchase of an Optos Optomap, which uses two separate scanning lasers to take painless pictures of the back of the eye that are stored and compared from visit to visit, allowing changes to be monitored.

HRT Unit

This sophisticated imaging system assists with assessing the health of the optic nerve, an important regular screening for patients with glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.

Epic Refracting Systems

Four new Epic 5100 units, in place since August 2008, combine several routine tests and computerize the refraction portion of the exam. Easier for staff to use, these machines reduce handwriting errors by interfacing directly with our electronic medical records and perform multiple tests at one time.

Other important technology includes:

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) of the macula and optic nerve
  • Flouroscein Angiography
  • Specular Microscopy
  • Corneal Topography
