Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam.

All the tests and exercises are simple and painless.

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. In our continuing efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Blaine Family Eye Care is proud to announce the inclusion of the iWellnessExam as an important part of our complete eye examination. Similar to an MRI or CT scan for the eye, the iWellnessExam uses spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to produce cross sectional images of the retinal layers – which is sensitive area of the back of your eye – in a matter of seconds.
Traditional eye exams and retinal photography do not provide this level of detail. The iWellness imaging is typically not covered by your vision or medical insurance. The $39 charge will be added on the cost of your visit.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress without symptoms. In early stages, you may not even notice a change in your vision. But sight threatening conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and others can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina, including the iWellnessExam.
The iWellnessExam provides:
- Detailed SD-OCT scan reports to show a healthy eye or detect early signs of disease.
- Thickness maps of the retina and ganglion cell complex giving your doctor detailed information simply not available with other methods.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss your iWellnessExam scan reports with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows Doctors Binfet and Kelly to compare your iWellnessExam scan reports each year to look for changes.
- The iWellnessExam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all age and provides your doctor with valuable information about the health of your most precious gift – your sight.
Our Advanced Technology
During your eye exam we will test utilize some of the latest in eye care technology to assist us in observing the health of your eye. Some of the instruments that we may use include:
Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT)
SD-OCT is like an MRI of the eye. It is used to obtain high resolution cross-sectional and three dimensional images of the retina, cornea and anterior chamber of the eye. This technology is very useful for the early detection and management of diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many others. This is the same device that we utilize for our i.wellness testing, but in cases where it is being utilized to assist in managing existing disease the scans will typically be billed to insurance.
Humphrey Matrix Perimeter
This device uses state of the art technology to test a patient’s field of vision to monitor for glaucoma and other disease processes that can cause central or peripheral visual field loss. We do visual field screenings on all routine adult exams to rule out subtle changes to patient’s vision that they may not be aware of.
iProfiler Plus with Corneal Topography
Used to determine the exact “fingerprint” or visual profile of your eyes by measuring your eye at 1,500 points. Based on your profile, we will determine the best prescription possible for your eyes.
Also known as corneal mapping, corneal topography is the most accurate way to measure corneal curvature. This is accomplished by evaluating 8,000 to 10,000 specific points across the entire corneal surface. Corneal topography is useful for contact lens fitting, especially complex contact fits and rigid gas permeable fits. Topography may also be indicated for certain corneal diseases such as keratoconus.
Blaine Family Eye Care strives to offer the latest technology in contact lenses. Dr. Kelly and Dr. Binfet custom fit every patient with contact lenses that will suit their individual needs and lifestyle. An annual comprehensive exam is critical in maintaining eye health for contact lens wearers and is typically required for prescription and fit.
