Investing in our Patients

With Advanced Technology

aec-techbadge-001

The state of healthcare is changing dramatically with the advancement of technology that allows eye doctors to see more, detect disease pathologies earlier, and provide advanced treatment. Our passion for providing the highest level of patient care possible has driven us to invest heavily in some of the most sophisticated equipment available for the detection and treatment of eye disease and ocular conditions. As a specialty practice, we work with some of the most complicated cases, and our technology difference enables our eye doctors to help our patients in ways that are not possible at offices that lack this technology. In the past few years, so many new technologies have been developed that can not only diagnose vision-threatening conditions but also treat and manage them. Here are some of the technologies available at American Family Vision Clinic.

Triton-2

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

This noninvasive imaging method can diagnose and manage diseases such as diabetes-related retinopathy and glaucoma. OCT is also quite useful in the assessment of subretinal fluid, neurosensory detachments, pigment-epithelial detachments, and choroidal neovascular membranes. Utilization of OCT imaging as a pre and post surgical assessment tool can provide invaluable information in the surgical management of macular holes and retinal detachments. OCT can provide visualization of surgical outcomes, confirming reattachment and normal contour.

Triton-2

Retinal Camera

Digital Retinal Photography is a new technology that represents the latest in eye disease detection. It allows us to more thoroughly evaluate your retina, the sensitive tissue in your eye that is responsible for vision. The retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases, which can lead to vision loss. Digital Retinal Photography gives us a more comprehensive way of viewing your eyes than was previously available and allows us to perform a more thorough exam. As it adds to our ability to evaluate the health of your eyes, it is especially important if you have headaches, spots or flashes, a family history of glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, or arthritis.

Triton-2

Visual Field Test

Visual field testing is a crucial element of a medical eye exam. It is used to identify changes in peripheral or central vision that may not be apparent to the patient. One of the main purposes of visual field testing is to detect signs of optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma. In addition, visual field tests can be used to diagnose retinal diseases, eyelid conditions such as ptosis or drooping, optic nerve disorders such as optic neuritis, and brain diseases that impact the visual pathways. The visual pathways in the brain are responsible for processing visual information from the front of the eye.

Triton-2

Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)

A visual evoked potential is a non-invasive test used by our eye doctors to measure the response of the brain to visual information. We use the VEP test at American Family Vision Clinic to have a deeper understanding of the visual system and to identify mechanical or neurological obstructions to the visual process. It is often used to diagnose vision problems and neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis and brain tumors.

Testimonials


Such a nice optician. My grandson is only 4 and needs glasses. We were so sad, but he explained the issues, and we will follow up as he suggested.


Anna P.

I had such a good experience with the clinic. Very friendly staff and doctor, did not have to wait for long to be called, and was treated respectfully. Thanks, American Family.


June S.

Dr. Zurcher has gone above and beyond what any other eye doctor has ever done to figure out what is going on with my eyes. Very happy with American Family Vision.


Christine R.

Family Vision Clinic changed our lives! My daughter was frequently car sick, and she was getting headaches every day, often painful enough that they brought her to tears. We saw a string of doctors and therapists, but we made no progress. Finally, we found Dr. Levi Zurcher and his eye therapist Rain. After ten weeks of eye therapy my daughter no longer gets headaches, and she no longer gets car sick. Daily tears are a thing of the past. I really can’t say enough about this clinic. It was fascinating to watch Dr. Zurcher work. For the first time, someone who knew what they were doing was intently studying my daughter, really trying to figure out all of her eye issues, and his therapist Rain is one of the most patient and lovely people that I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. We’re finished with eye therapy—yay!—and I have switched to American Family Vision Clinic for all of my family’s other eye health needs.


Lars Wulff

Very professional, yet kind and helpful. They do what they can to make the appointment comfortable. I was running a bit late, I made sure ti call. They were able to switch me with a patient who was already there, they treated me with respect, and helped my son have confidence by getting him the eye care he needed that day. Thank you so much! Would recommend to anyone. It's a blessing that they care enough to work with people who have all different types of insurance from work to state coverage.
