Technology at BCEC
At Blount County Eye Center, we embrace technology! Continually investing in cutting-edge technology is vital to providing a superior level of eye health care. Take a minute to learn about some of the equipment that we're proud to offer our friends in Blount County!
An OCT is like an ultrasound that uses light waves to measure and image spectacular detail within the eye. Using an OCT, our eye doctors are able to see individual layers of the retina. They're also able to use the OCT to aid in specialty contact lens fits.
Measuring peripheral vision and your field of vision can be critical for both diagnosis and management of eye conditions. Our visual fields machine is able to provide the eye care physicians at Blount County Eye Center with information about potential vision loss.
OPTOS Retinal Imaging
The corneal topographer is an amazing piece of equipment that can be used to precision map the front surface of the eye. It is extremely useful to aid in the fitting of contact lenses. It is also useful in measuring irregularities and changes in the corneal surface.
Have you ever wondered what the inside of your eye looked like? This is one way in which a retinal camera can change the game in eye health care! The images captured with this camera create a permanent, documented history of your eye health. As images are taken year to year, your eye doctor is able to track and show you any changes that take place within your eye.

Your lens design dictates how you're able to use your prescription. The design refers to the layout of the optics of the lens itself. There are a wide variety of options for you to choose from and your eye doctor will recommend the one they feel is best for you.
The actual material your lenses are made out of impacts your comfort, safety and vision in your glasses. Each material has it's own pros and cons, and it's important to understand those differences before you make your lens material selection.
