Our Clinical Technicians
Our clinical technicians are regarded as some of the most caring and highly skilled eye care assistants in Central Florida! They directly assist our doctors in the medical, visual, and contact lens care of our patients.
After you check-in at the front desk, you will soon be greeted by your technician and brought to the exam room. Here you will spend the next 15 minutes preparing to see the doctor. Our technicians pride themselves on providing a calming and reassuring presence and making you feel not only comfortable but well understood prior to seeing the doctor. They are here to be your advocate and not only document what concerns you may have that brought you in for an exam, but to also help identify complaints or concerns you didn’t even know could be addressed by our team. They make it their mission to prevent you from needing to repeat yourself throughout the examination process and making sure your entire visit is seamless and enjoyable.
Once your needs are understood the technician will perform a few preliminary measurements prior to you seeing the doctor. These will include: visual acuity, color vision testing, depth perception testing, eye pressure measurement, blood pressure, as well as retinal imaging.
Our technicians will also administer any additional medical/visual testing and perform procedures ordered by our doctors, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), visual field testing (peripheral vision), macular pigment optical density testing, corneal topography, and corneal pachymetry.
Our technicians also work directly with our contact lens patients, keeping up to date with the newest and most advanced contact lens technologies. They are highly skilled in teaching patients of all ages to apply and remove soft and hard contact lenses. Whether it be for cosmetic or medical purposes.
