Eyecode technology provides 3D images of your eyes to help Eyesite professionals cater to your specific vision needs. The Eyecode machine tracks your head and eye movements while making detailed measurements of your eyes. This means Eyesite can provide prescriptions that are 5 times more accurate than traditional methods.

Optimap Retinal Examination

Optimap retinal examination takes super high resolution images of the retina. This can help Eyesite catch potential health problems and give customers a better understanding of their eye health.


At Eyesite, we can use OCT, (optical coherence tomography) to examine the structures at the back of your eye. The technology creates an image by bouncing light off the back of your eye. This provides an incredibly detailed picture of your inner eye which can be used to treat various vision problems and diagnose future issues.

Eyesite specialists can help you better understand the procedure for implanting a lens and give you advice about the treatment. Our goal is to help you make the vision choice that is right for you.
