As an Optometric Technician, my main role is to assist Dr. Patterson in providing you with the best possible eye care. Prior to your visit with the Doctor, I perform a variety of tests including autorefraction, tonometry, visual fields, retinal photos and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scans. Each of these tests is useful to Dr. Patterson in determining your proper diagnosis and treatment plan. At first, some of these tests may seem a bit intimidating or strange. However, my goal is to make you as comfortable as I can during the testing, and to answer any questions you may have regarding the process and the equipment.
