Whether it’s the tests that are performed, time or they have fear that something may be wrong with their vision.
CLARIYE at our Noblesville Facility
We have good news! At Dr. Amy Walden and Associates, we use the most advanced eye technology for our comprehensive eye exams. CLARIFYE is one of the newest digital eye exams from LensCrafters that allows doctors to gather five times more information about your overall eye health and in an fraction of the time. This exam is so precise, it maps the curvature of your cornea, which gives your eye doctor a fingerprint of your eye. It shows the small changes that happen in your eyes over time and can also give you the different measurements of your day and night vision.
When people have eye exams with CLARIFYE we recommend our patients to include optomap as part of their eye exam. If you have not heard of the optomap it is a retinal imaging device which shows a wide 82% view of your retina at one time. With other devices, about 15% to 45% of your retina is viewed. Not only is it more precise, but it is painless, fast and comfortable. This is a great device for all ages and suitable for the entire family.

This procedure allows your eye doctor to detect diseases earlier and it is also a diagnostic tool. The optomap is quicker then other retinal screenings. The exam is simple for the patient, all you have to do is look into the device one eye at a time (looking through a keyhole). A quick flash of light lets you know the image of your retina has been taken. Usually your eyes will not need to be dilated, but this is all dependent on your history and the overall health of your eyes. The process takes about a second and the images can be viewed immediately. You can view these and these images are saved for future use as well.
