The best way to promote healthy vision for a lifetime is with annual eye examinations.  During your yearly exam at Scottsbluff Vision Clinic & Eastern Wyoming Eye Clinic, our expert Doctors of Optometry will evaluate changes in your vision and discuss any eye difficulties you are experiencing.  Your eyes will be assessed for ocular conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and dry eye using our advanced ocular technology pictured below.  With the results of these tests, our Doctors will determine your best possible vision prescription for eyewear and contact lenses. If needed, our Doctors will also prescribe drops and antibiotics for eye infections, ocular allergies, dry eye, and glaucoma.







A phoropter uses different lenses to measure refractive error, which helps our Doctors determine your precise prescription for eyewear and contact lenses.  It also measures your binocularity, the ability of both eyes to capture images, send them to the brain, and for the brain to see the final image.











A slit lamp provides a magnified, three-dimensional view of the different parts of your eye.  With this tool, our Doctors examine the front parts of your eye, including the cornea, lens, and iris, as well as the vitreous gel that fills the large space in the middle of your eye.












Ophthalmoscopes are used by our Doctors to examine       the interior structures of your eye, especially the retina.










A retinoscope is used by our Doctors to determine whether your eyes have difficulty seeing things up close or far away.  By shining light back and forth across your eye, our Doctors determine your vision needs with great accuracy by focusing on the retina at the back of the eye.









                              AUTO REFRACTOR          


The accuracy of an auto refractor allows our Doctors a viable starting point in determining your eyeglasses and contact lens prescription by measuring how light is changed as it enters the eye.  These measurements also help diagnose conditions such as astigmatism, keratoconus, corneal scarring and corneal distortion.    















A tonometer determines the intraocular pressure inside your eye which is important for evaluating patients at risk for glaucoma.















A topographer produces images that map the surface curvature or shape of your cornea.  Since the cornea is responsible for 70% of the eye’s refractive power, the topographer is critical in determining your quality of vision as well as your corneal health. 
















Frequency Doubling Technology (FDT) provides our Doctors a method of assessing early visual field loss and ocular disease.   










With the results of Optomap imaging, our Doctors can see a 200-degree wide field of the inside of your eye.  You are placed in front of the Optomap machine and look through a small window.  An image similar to a digital photograph is then taken that can detect eye problems before they affect your vision. 
















Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is one of the few devices that reveals in-depth images of the eye's internal structures. The exam only takes a few seconds. Nothing touches your eyes as you look into the machine and there are no puffs of air or flashes of bright light.  Our Doctors will discuss the results with you and keep your details on file to refer back to during annual eye examinations.  The imagery will help check for any changes that  need to be monitored.
