It is the goal of Primary Eyecare Professionals to embrace and
utilize technology to improve the quality of life for our patients.
Every aspect of optometry has been or will be influenced by technological
changes. Medical management of ocular disease has
been enhanced with new medications. Providing impact resistant lenses
for children will ensure safe and clear vision for many years to
come. Durable and flexible ophthalmic frames are essential when
wearing new prescription glasses. The process of answering which
is better, 1 or 2, has been streamlined with the addition of auto-refractors
and computerized letter charts. Digital imaging of the retina and
detailed mapping of peripheral vision can be generated with the
use of cutting edge technology. New contact lens materials enable
patients to enjoy wearing their contacts during the day. It is clear
to see the influence of technology on a profession such as Optometry.
