Specialized Exams & Treatments
Focused Eye Care is a premier provider of treatment for Dry Eye Syndrome, and also offer specialized exams that can uncover more than just eye health conditions.
At Focused Eye Care, we believe that healthy eyes are an indicator of, and contribute to, your overall health. That’s one of the reasons why we offer specialized eye exams and treatments. Read more about two of them below…
Optos® Wellness Scanning
Do you know that your eyes are the only visible extension of your brain, and looking into them is the only way to actually see any of your blood vessels? It’s true! Because of that, your eyes can tell a story that might not be available any other way, and an Optos wellness scan is a great way to read it.
Our Optos Daytona scanner enhances your Focused Eye Care doctor’s ability to detect early changes that may indicate life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardio-vascular disease, cancer and stroke.
Optos wellness scans are very affordable (surprisingly so), and well worth the peace of mind they may offer you.
LipiFlow® Thermal Pulsation
Eyes are very sensitive, and susceptible to a variety of issues, one of the most common of which is Dry Eye Syndrome, in part because there are so many factors that can contribute to it, including allergies, age, medications, and more.
Fortunately, the doctors at Focused Eye Care are experts at treating dry eye, and we are the premier provider in the area of LipiFlow thermal pulsation treatments for dry eye.
LipiFlow is a gentle, safe and very effective way to relieve the most common cause of dry eye: Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Your meibomian glands are the tiny glands at the edges of your eyelids, responsible for secreting the fluid that lubricates your eyes. When they clog up, the fluid flow is reduced, or stops completely, and your eyes dry out.
LipiFlow applies moist pulsating heat to your eyelids, and gently massages them, to break up the material clogging your meibomian glands and flush it away. LipiFlow is FDA-approved and your Focused Eye Care doctor is highly-trained in its use. In fact, other eye doctors refer patients to us for LipiFlow treatments.
There are other ways to combat dry eye, and your Focused Eye Care doctor will encourage you to follow some or all of them. But when nothing else works, LipiFlow can help.
Thorough information about Dry Eye Syndrome and LipiFlow treatments is in two free brochures available in our offices: Do You Suffer From Dry Eyes? and Got Dry Eyes? LipiFlow Can Help. Ask for copies when you see your Focused Eye Care doctor.
If you have concerns about your overall health or suffer from dry eyes, mention it when you request an appointment with a Focused Eye Care doctor.
