Technology drives everything about our practice. From using our website and videos to educate patients to our EMR, we use available technology to give patients the best care possible.
We are able to achieve tailored and targeted surgical results using the clinical patient data collected from our various advanced technology diagnostic devices. Technology allows us to perform Constant Comparative Analysis on testing results, observe any discrete variations, and utilize “forecasting software” to predict the best outcomes. Our software takes each patient’s results and customizes outcomes to help deliver even more accurate results for future patients. These tailored results allow patients to have more choices in their advanced cataract surgery, glaucoma implants and various laser treatments including iLASIK.
