Why Sophisticated Technology is Critical in Ophthalmology
Imagine walking into your cellphone provider store to get a new battery installed and the employees are all using flip phones and clunky desktop computers. Something doesn’t add up there.
While some may think cellphones are a lifeline, when dealing with a part of your body that truly does affect your life, the technology used should be held to the highest of standards.
Ophthalmology is a technology intensive area of medicine. With advancements in technology happening 24/7, we at the Eyesight and Surgical Institute are committed to staying on top of these trends.
Being able to diagnose conditions appropriately in ophthalmology requires the usage of very specific equipment. Here’s a little bit about our technology.
Examples of Conditions Treated With Advanced Technology
If you check out all the symptoms and conditions we treat, you’ll quickly realize why appropriate technology is critical in providing the most desired outcomes for our patients.
Cataracts occur when the lens, located behind the colored part of your eye, becomes cloudy. For this condition, we help patients select the appropriate cataract Intraocular lenses to maximize their eyesight.
Patients who have symptoms of dry eye typically have visual fluctuation, blurriness, irritation, and scratchy or red eyes. These patients rely on our expertise in treating this condition with the latest technologies.
Office Designed With Excellence of Eye Care in Mind
Aside from the convenient San Diego location in the “Golden Triangle” off Interstates I-805 and I-5, the Eyesight and Surgical Institute is specifically designed for efficient and effective treatment.
From Surgical procedures, Laser treatment to advanced technology for Cataract, Dry Eye Retina and Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, The Eyesight and Surgical Institute has on premises a wide range of technology to effectively diagnose and treat serious eye conditions.
Technology is Strongest with Proper Education
Like any technology, the tools themselves make little difference without proper education, deployment, and usage by the medical practitioner. At ESI, our Ophthalmologists are trained and skilled in selecting the appropriate technology in the diagnosis and treatment of any specific condition. Having specific tools at our disposal allows our team to effectively diagnose and treat our patients with a laser-focused approach.
Why Our Technology Makes Us Stand Out
Because correct diagnosis of conditions in ophthalmology requires the usage of specific equipment, technology really is the eyes and ears of the practice. But, there is no substitute for smart thinking. Our staff knows when to use the appropriate technology and we take pride in providing the best treatment for our patients.
