We wish to extend a congratulations to employees, Jenn and Josey, on their successful certifications. Both girls tested for the National Contact Lens Examiners Certification in November of 2011 and found out yesterday that they passed their exams.
Lately there has been a lot of commotion in the opthalmic community about the introduction of online screening tests.
I commend the producers of these programs, for their resourcefulness. It comes with no doubt to me that the programs are being used very regularly as the usefulness is exponential. However, I feel it should be noted by as many optometrists as possible, that no computerized resource should ever substitute for a Physician. This applies in all fields of Medicine, and not just for the benefit of the economy and the humanity of our society but also, the benefit of yours and your childrens health. It is a commonly re-iterated fact in our office that optometry goes beyond that of contacts, glasses and vision. There are many medical conditions that not only influence vision, but those that do not. Please understand these are screening tests, and our doctors go to school to benefit your health
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle did Dr. "Marty" Carroll a wonderful honor this past weekend by posting the following article. Such great things are said not only about the King of Glasses but also the Cheyenne Vision Clinic too! Thank you Becky!
On November 20th, we were proud to send three of our employees to Denver to participate in certification exams.
Jenn, a current Optician with her ABO certification (American Board of Opticianry), participated in the NCLE Examination. The NCLE is the Nation Contact Lens Examination, that will certify her nationally in Contact Lens dispensing and fitting.
Josey, a current optician with her CPO Certification (Certified Paraoptometric), also sat for the NCLE Examination along with Jenn.
Tyffany, also an optician, participated in the ABO examination. This Exam is designed to nationally certify her in opticianry.
Stay tuned for the results!
The Cheyenne Vision Clinic will have exclusive use of the Acuvue Moist Toric Daily Lenses.
This is the first single use contact lens for astigmatism manufactured by Acuvue.
Patients with astigmatism will now be able to have the advantages of great vision, comfort, eye health and convenience in a daily disposable contact lense.
THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!!!
With the touch of the temple or tilt of the head a layer of liquid crystals is activated in each lens, instantly creating an adjustable BIFOCAL. Electronic Glasses not only gives you control over your vision, it also provides wider fields of view and less distortion than progressives. This is the biggest optical advance in over 50 years.
The Cheyenne Vision Clinic will be offering liquid crystal technology bifocals in no line form with the touch of a finger. These are the most high tech glasses available today!
Some patients complain that their bifocals interfere with bowling, golfing or walking. Just touch your finger to one temple and your reading lens activates.
These state-of-the-art glasses will be available at Cheyenne Vision Clinic later this year.
The Cheyenne Vision Clinic has been using Electronic Medical Records for nearly a year now. This new system provides accuracy, enhanced patient safety and compliance with government regulations.
Refractive surgery may never be the same again. SMILE LASIK is the new state-of-the-art LASIK performed with the world’s newest laser to correct vision.
It may replace standard LASIK that uses an excimer laser and requires a flap. This appears to make the procedure safer and some of the complications like dry eye less.
The surgery uses one laser to create a small opening and a lenticule (lens) within the cornea. The lenticule is removed through the small opening. Advantages are both to the doctor and patient. Reports say it is quick, extremely safe, and comfortable and the results are predictable. It has the safety of no blade and no flap, the two things that create the majority of LASIK complications.
Currently it is being performed outside of the
It is anticipated that SMIKE LASIK will be FDA approved within a few years for those who choose to wait.
If you have any questions regarding SMILE LASIK please ask your doctor during your annual eye examination or setup a free consultation.
One Laser . . . No Blade . . .No Flap = Anticipated Safer with less complications
