Accounting, Patient Benefits

A thorough eye health evaluation requires teamwork to take advantage of modern technology. As a clinical technician Misty begins your evaluation with a case history, eye pressure, blood pressure, visual field testing for nerve sensitivity, measurements of the optics, and retinal imaging to view the inner structure of the eye. She always provides an explanation fo the tests, then presents the results to the doctor to review before beginning their part of your examination.
