Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center, P.C. now offers iWellness Exams.
This is NEW cutting-edge equipment added to our in-depth vision evaluation.
Like an MRI of the eye, the iWellnessExam™ reveals ocular anatomy and signs of disease in exquisite detail. This breakthrough technology allows your doctor to examine with unprecedented clarity, structures that are invisible using traditional methods. This unique technology can help detect potentially vision threatening, as well as systemic diseases in their very early stages, when they are most treatable.
Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others generally have no outward signs or symptoms in early stages. Therefore, in an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, our practice has joined with other elite practices now performing comprehensive eye exams using the iVue® SD-OCT by Optovue
As part of your pre-exam testing, our technician will perform the iWellnessExam which your doctor will review with you during your examination. The $45 co-pay is typically not covered by your vision or medical insurance unless being used to actively follow disease. This charge will be added to the cost of your visit. Any questions you have about iWellnessExam and the results of the test can be discussed with the doctor during your examination.
