Optomap Retinal Imaging
The optomap retinal exam is used by our doctors to get an ultra-wide view of the retina (the back of your eye). While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. This can lead to early detection of common diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and cancer. The exam is quick and painless!
The optomap story: In 1990, 5 year old Leif Anderson went blind in one eye due to an undiagnosed retinal detachment. He was getting regular eye exams, but conventional tests available at the time made a thorough examination difficult. Distressed by the diagnostic methods available, Leif’s father, Douglas, designed the optomap Retinal Exam.
The optomap retinal exam is one of the most powerful tools in the world to diagnose, document, and monitor your retinal health.
Capital Vision Center always has the latest and greatest technology. This new HD Optomap is the latest generation of the most popular retinal imaging instrument available. The same instrument the retinal specialists have!

- Built-in near-reading card lights
Capital Vision Center always has the latest and greatest technology. We have a computerized phoropters in ALL of the exam rooms.
Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer
This is a test of peripheral vision that is painless and takes about 10 minutes.
The test is done with an instrument called a Humphrey visual field analyzer. The field test is done sitting down with one eye covered and a lens in front of your eye if you normally wear glasses. Small dots of light will then flash inside and you will press a button each time you see a light.
The instrument will test spots again if it thinks you should have seen them. This is a test of your eye, not you, and you must not worry about whether you have missed a spot. If you remain calm and just press the button when you see a light the test will be over in no time.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your Optometrist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
The OCT anterior segment function also provides valuable information for contact lens fittings and any problems with the front surface of your eye.
Capital Vision Center utilizes this technology to diagnose, document, and monitor your ocular health.
Anterior Segment Camera
Capital Vision Center has implemented the latest and greatest technology to provide the best patient care there is. With our anterior segment camera we are able to provide digital imaging of any ocular condition on the front surface of the eye. We utilize this technology diagnose, document, and monitor ocular health.
Nidek Digital Non-Contact Tonometry (NCT)
Testing your eye pressure is a very important part of your eye exam. This new digital tonometry test offers the smallest puff of air ever in a tonometry test (advanced auto puff control). Many patients do not even feel it.
This instrument offers 3-d auto tracking, auto shoot, and noise reduction.
Marco OPD-Scan III Wavefront Aberrometer
This instrument is a true all in one instrument for measuring the anatomy of your eyes digitally. The OPDIII is an autorefractor, keratometer, pupillometer, corneal topographer, and integrated wavefront aberrometer all in one. It also takes 20 diagnostic metrics in all less than 5 seconds per eye. This instrument is digitally integrated into your health record to analyze your ocular health.
Our doctors are fully trained and certified to utilize this new technology to create the best possible prescription for every patient.
Capital Vision Center is pleased to announce that we now have TWO of these amazing instruments to utilize for every patient
Frequency Doubling Mini-Visual Field (FDT)
This mini-visual field test gives a quick determination of the areas of your vision that are working correctly. The test is quick and easy. All you have to do is click a button if you see a wavy line inside of the instrument. Utilizing this technology allows the doctors to ensure the best care for each and every patient.
Professional Electronic Blood Pressure Monitors
Did you know that there are thousands of tiny blood vessels in your eyes? Taking an accurate blood pressure on each patient is important for every eye exam.
Capital Vision Center has multiple medical grade digital blood pressure monitors that every patient will use to monitor their ocular and systemic health.
Over the last 50 years, the technology behind ophthalmic lens designs has greatly improved.
Yet the way we fit and measure patients’ lenses has remained virtually the same. To get the full benefit of modern lens designs, it is necessary to go beyond the traditional measurements of PD and fitting heights. Your lenses are personalized based on exactly how your glasses sit on your face, the placement of your pupils, and where your eyes line up in the frame.
Capital Vision Center has added this technology to the optical department to aid in providing the best possible placement of each lens to give the greatest possible vision for each and every patient. Without proper measurements from the certified opticians at Capital Vision Center, your glasses will never be able to correct 100% of your prescription.
In-Office Optical Technology
Capital Vision Center is always trying to utilize the newest technology when creating custom eyeware specific to each patient. We have state of the art measuring devices, lens tinting technology, and an in-office lens edger that can add patient specific prescriptions into any frame they choose. This gives us the ability to create same day glasses for many patients.
To achieve the best optical performance from your glasses, exact measurements must be taken by our certified opticians in order to utilize 100% of your prescription. Glasses are not “one size fits all” and each pair is made custom to for every patient to ensure best vision through them. Stop by our office today to check out our inventory of over 2000 frames.
