Our Technology

At Dalton Family Eyecare, preemptive care is our priority. We use the latest technology to prevent and manage eye conditions long before they impact your vision.

Early
Detection is Key

Early diagnosis is essential to prevent vision loss from eye care conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic eye disease, and macular degeneration. With annual comprehensive eye exams, our doctors can uncover issues far in advance, ensuring healthy eyes and clear vision for years to come.
HD Imaging Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

HD Imaging
for Earlier Detection

Our advanced imaging technology enables us to not only monitor changes in your vision, but also gain a full understanding of your overall health. Thanks to the optomap, we can thoroughly evaluate your retina without uncomfortable dilation: this helps us detect eye issues and general health issues like stroke and diabetes well before major symptoms show. If we have any concerns, we may turn to other non-invasive equipment, like OCT scans or virtual field headsets, for a deeper view of your retina.

HD Imaging Chorioretinal Atrophy

In-Depth
Eye Evaluation

With our modern imaging equipment, we can easily discover stealthy eye issues, such as glaucoma and diabetic neuropathy, which other practices may miss. In addition to optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans, we implement computerized color vision testing, as discolored vision can be a symptom of many conditions. For specialty issues, we use AdaptDx to monitor how quickly your eyes adjust to darkness, Diopsys® to test neurological responses, and pachymetry to measure cornea thickness.

Dalton Family Eyecare Dry Eye Treatment

Dry Eye
Treatment

Dry eye disease occurs when the eye doesn’t produce enough tears, or when the quality of the tears is too poor and they evaporate too quickly to lubricate the eye. Dry eye can cause lasting discomfort and irritation, watery eyes, redness, stinging, and blurry vision. To uncover the precise causes of dry eye, we perform a variety of diagnostic tests using meibography, TearLab®, and InflammaDry® equipment. If dry eye is found, we’ll soothe your symptoms fast with a customized MiBo Thermoflo or Blephex treatment.

Accurate
Detection for Every Eye Condition

When it comes to technology, Dalton Family Eyecare adopts only the best of the best. That’s why we use Diopsys® neurological diagnostic technology to get a comprehensive view of your retinal health and detect even the earliest signs of glaucoma and diabetic eye disease.
Elderly with Glaucoma

Glaucoma

Glaucoma results from high pressure within the eye, or intraocular pressure (IOP). This can damage your optic nerve, which sends what you see to your brain. To catch and treat glaucoma before it hinders your vision, we have a wide variety of precise tools and comfortable tests to assess your eye health: Diopsys®, OCT scans, pachymetry, computerized color vision testing, gonioscopy, and S3 scanners help us fully understand your retinal health and determine whether glaucoma management can help.

Woman with diabetic eye disease

Diabetic Eye Disease

Blood issues related to diabetes can increase the risk of many eye conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. To identify diabetic eye issues as soon as possible, we use Diopsys®, computerized color vision testing, and gonioscopy. We also provide clinically-proven EyePromise DVS vitamins to mitigate the effects of diabetic eye disease without affecting blood sugar levels.

Advanced
AMD Detection

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can naturally result from aging: this process wears down the part of the retina essential for clear central vision, the macula. As a leading cause of blindness in people over 50, advanced AMD detection is vital to protect your eyesight. In addition to our optomap and Diopsys® retinal imaging equipment, we offer AdaptDx to identify one of AMD’s earliest symptoms, poor adjustment to changing light conditions, and manage the problem before it impacts your vision.

Advanced AMD Detection
Myopia Management

Myopia
Management

Myopia (nearsightedness) is a common vision error resulting from a misshapen eye. It makes faraway objects appear blurry. Eyewear can bring clear vision, but not treat the underlying problem of irregular eye shape. To correct vision and help slow myopia’s progression, we offer Eyezen™ near vision glasses, atropine eye drops, multifocal contact lenses, and custom-fit orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses worn overnight to painlessly reshape the cornea. These solutions are especially effective for children!

Our patients trust us to treat the vision needs of their entire family. See what they have to say about our warm, family-first approach and exceptionally comfortable technology!
“The most thorough eye exam I have ever had – using technology that I haven’t experienced to this point. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a “small town” doctor and I have to say that they are the best optometrist and staff that I have been to, far exceeding the experiences I had while living in Atlanta. If you live in the area, there is no need to drive to the big city!!!”

– Jay O.

“Dr. Dalton and his staff are excellent! I had been using a chain vision center for the past couple of years, but since settling in Cleveland wanted to find some I can see for years. I made the right choice! They are all very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Dalton is very knowledgeable and uses the best technology for your eye care. He doesn’t push you towards any particular options, just explains everything in detail and guides you through your choices. I picked him at random and thrilled that I did!”

– Beth R.

“Dr. Dalton’s practice is equipped with the latest in technology to help him identify any eye problems that may arise in his patients. In spite of this, he still presents with a down home professional approach that makes a patient feel quite at ease. All of the staff work together to accomplish this same goal. This is quite refreshing and a medical staff considering the stressful times we now live under.”

– Tommy M.
