Keep reading to learn how this innovative approach to eye exams is transforming the way you care for your vision in Madison, WI.

Patient Medical History

Before the eye exam, you’ll fill out a simple questionnaire about your medical history online. This helps us gather important health information about you and create your Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

Visual Pre-Testing

Enjoy the convenience of our on-site optical assistant, equipped with advanced tools like an autorefractor and autokeratometer. These tools provide an accurate and objective starting point for your prescription. If you already wear glasses, that’s okay! We have an auto-lensometer that can read your current prescription with ease.

Visual Acuity Test

Experience our cutting-edge technology at the optical center, where we use state-of-the-art digital phoropters. Through high-definition video conferencing, an optometrist or technician performs a subjective refraction and clinical vision analysis on you in real time.

Eye Health Exam

Our on-site technician will conduct a series of tests to check for conditions like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Our comprehensive eye exam covers various assessments such as pupil function, color vision, and more:

  • Ocular Alignment and Motility
  • Pupil Function
  • Color Vision
  • Anterior Segment of the Eye; using Digital Slit Lamp images & videos
  • Non-Contact Tonometry to test eye pressure
  • Visual Field Testing to measure peripheral vision
  • Fundus Photography to analyze the retina and optic nerve

Live Clinical Review with an Optometrist

Rest assured that your information is handled securely. We transfer all the data and images from your medical history and eye exam to our trusted remote licensed optometrist. Through high-definition video conferencing, the optometrist meticulously reviews your eye health in real time, engaging in a collaborative discussion with you. Together, you finalize your prescription, ensuring it meets your specific needs.

Electronic Medical Records

We value your eye health and convenience, which is why we capture and store all the important data and images from your medical history, pre-testing, subjective acuity testing, eye health tests, optometrist assessment, and final prescription. This comprehensive collection becomes part of your Electronic Medical Record (EMR). It helps our optometrists easily track any changes in your vision and eye health over time.

Patient RX and Referral

 After you finish your eye exam, the remote optometrist swiftly sends your prescription electronically to our location at Madison Optical Center. We’ll print it right away, enabling you to purchase eyeglasses or contacts on the spot! In case further care is required, they’ll have a live video conference with you and refer you to the appropriate follow-up care.
