The Diopsys NOVA vision testing system allows your doctor to examine your eyes without the need for any sort of invasive equipment thanks to patented electrophysiological technology through two state of the art methods of testing. The only preparation a patient should perform to achieve the best results to keep the hair and skin clean and free of any products, though the doctor at your professional Northeast El Paso eye care center will gently cleanse the skin before testing begins. The Diopsys NOVA system examines your eyes through the use of sensory pads position on the head and under the eyelids for the most advanced examination of the inner-workings of your eyes. Unlike other imaging systems, the Visual Evoked Potential or VEP test utilizes these sensors to measure the levels of electrical activity which occur in your eyes as light enters them, measuring the strength of this path to the visual cortex of the brain and insure communication is crystal clear. No other eye exam works to examine vision in this way today. This test is accompanied by the use of Pattern Electroretinography. Also known as an ERG, this examination utilizes the same sensors to examine the health of the retina by measuring its functions at a cellular level. By measuring the retina’s ability to convey the electric impulses which occur when light enters the eye to create a visual image, your doctor can examine the health of this integral region of the eye for a more efficient diagnosis of optical disease than ever before possible.

Vision Correction Northeast El Paso

At El Paso Eyecare, we don’t want any of our patients to live with blurred vision and thanks to our Northeast El Paso eye doctor and Orthokeratology (Ortho-k), you don’t have to. Our experts perform a comprehensive eye exam that will detect any vision disorders you may have that are preventing you from seeing as clearly as possible. One of these disorders is astigmatism, a very common vision condition that causes blurred vision due to one of two conditions. In some cases, the cornea, which is the clear front cover of your eye, has an irregular shape. Astigmatism can also be caused by the curvature of the lens inside your eye. An irregular shaped cornea, or lens, prevents light from focusing correctly on your retina and, as a result, your vision becomes blurred from whatever distance. Ortho-k is a non-surgical procedure that involves you wearing a series of specially designed rigid contact lenses that gradually reshape the curvature of your cornea.

According to The Orthokeratology Academy of America, studies from all over the world have indicated that Ortho-k can keep your children’s nearsightedness from getting worse. A comprehensive optometric exam with our Northeast El Paso eye doctor, will include the proper testing for refractive errors that can be treated with Ortho-k. Ortho-k is a painless, non-invasive procedure and the series of rigid contact lenses used are gas permeable and worn overnight. While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape your cornea so you can see clearly the following day after you wake up and remove the lenses. Ortho-K corneal refractive therapy lenses are also a great vision solution for outdoor sports like soccer, swimming, football, and running, since glasses or contact lenses may not allow for the best performance.

For those patients too young for LASIK surgery the Ortho-k vision correction contact lenses are an excellent choice to meet the need for more natural, unassisted vision. Ortho-k is suitable at any age while LASIK surgery requires people to reach 18-20 years old. Compared with LASIK, Ortho-k is more secure and totally reversible. Ortho-k has a lower risk than LASIK surgery and is also half the price of LASIK surgery.
