Revolutionary Contact Lenses Now Available!

By now, you've probably heard about single use daily disposable contact lenses. These are lenses you put on in the morning, take off at night and throw away.

The next generation single-use contact lenses was recently approved by the FDA. These lenses are 30 Day, continuous wear, single-use lenses.

This means that each pair of lenses can be worn continuously (including while you sleep) for 30 days without removal.
These lenses have been used

in Canada and Australia and the clinical studies we've read so far have reported excellent results. While 30 day overnight lenses are certainly not new, (there were health concerns with the first generation materials used in the 80's), these new lenses provide excellent vision, comfort and eye health. That's because they allow about 6 times more oxygen to reach the eye than older types of lenses.

These lenses can be a great alternative for our contact lens patients and for those considering Laser Vision Correction. Please visit or call our offices, and ask Dr. So & his associates about this new technological CL option.

A New Dawn in Glaucoma Testing!

Dr. So is dedicated to catch the "silent thief of sight", glaucoma. Therefore, in an attempt to diagnose individuals with glaucoma as early as possible, Dr. So uses this technology routinely to test for glaucoma and other sight or life-threatening diseases. FREQUENCY DOUBLING TECHNOLOGY by Humphrey has become a standard in Dr. So offices comprehensive examinations for everyone over the age of 10. This instrument is also effective in detecting early changes in some systemic diseases and the growth of certain types of brain tumors.

In order to provide thorough eye examinations, Dr. So & his staffs routinely perform this test to every patient. Please feel free to ask Dr. So & his staffs about the details of this procedure.

New Corneal Measurement Technology!

We now have the most advanced corneal mapping technology. Computerized corneal topography is a three dimensional imaging process used to map the surface power of the cornea. The data points gathered are then digitized and analyzed by sophisticated computer software. The result is a detailed map of the corneal curvature much like a topographical map of land.

With this information Dr. So is able to design soft and gas permeable contact lenses with curvature changes every 10 microns, creating the ultimate custom lens.

In addition, data gathered from topography can be used in the diagnosis and management of corneal curvature abnormalities.

Also, this instrument is essential for determining if a patient is a candidate for refractive surgery, in addition to managing their pre-operative and post-operative care.

New Softest Air-puff Ocular Pressure (Glaucoma Screening) Technology!

This new additional equipment AT555 utilizes a patented hands-free automatic alignment system, enabling Dr. So & his staffs to take an accurate intra-ocular pressure measurement in seconds. AT555 also generates the softest air-puff among all other tonometers to ensure optimum comfort for every patient.

Since readings of ocular pressures are critical in assisting Dr. So & his associates to diagnose Glaucoma, AT555 measurement is routinely and accurately taken from every patient of Dr. So offices.
