Choate Eye Associates Now Uses Opt-Align Eye Care Technology

Goodlettsville, TN (PRWEB) August 09, 2013

Choate Eye Associates is pleased to announce that it is now using Opt-Align™ technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of computer vision syndrome (CVS) and asthenopia (eyestrain). Choate Eye Associates is the only vision correction center in the entire state of Tennessee that offers this advanced technology. With the addition of Opt-Align™ technology, optometrists Walter Choate and Lauren Goldsmith have once again demonstrated their commitment to providing patients with the best possible care.

About Opt-Align™ Vision Technology

Opt-Align™ is a new step forward in the diagnosis and treatment of computer vision syndrome (CVS) and asthenopia (eyestrain). Eyestrain is most commonly caused by a fixation disparity, which occurs when the focusing muscles of the eyes are not working together with the muscles that move the eyes. Using Opt-Align™ technology, a vision specialist is able to accurately measure the alignment of a patient's eyes and devise effective, fully customized treatments to address eyestrain.

The Basics of CVS

Related to eyestrain in a number of ways, CVS refers to a group of symptoms that can occur when looking at a computer monitor for a prolonged period of time. Some of the most common symptoms of CVS include:

1.    Eyestrain
2.    Headaches
3.    Blurred vision
4.    Dry eyes
5.    Red eyes
6.    Problems refocusing
7.    Double vision
8.    Dizziness

How Common Is CVS?

CVS is very common since much of what people do at work and at home is related to computers. According to a study by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, CVS affects 90 percent of all people who spend at least three hours a day at the computer.

Why Opt-Align™ is Crucial for Treating CVS

With the unprecedented accuracy and diagnostic advantages of Opt-Align™ technology, Dr. Choate and Dr. Goldsmith can provide even better patient care. Using Opt-Align™ technology, they can accurately measure eye misalignment and other minute disparities between a patient's eyes. Using this data, they can prescribe corrective lenses that take minute alignment and focusing imperfections into account.

Opt-Align™ Technology and Patients

The most important thing about Opt-Align™ is how it enhances patient experience, and the results are routinely positive. It only takes two to three minutes of testing for the Opt-Align™ instrument to obtain an accurate measurement. The process is comfortable during testing, and in just a very brief testing time, patients take their first step into a better world.

The Opt-Align™ Difference

When patients use their computers wearing the glasses designed with Opt-Align™ data, they will be far less likely to experience the adverse symptoms of CVS. For a number of patients, the headaches and dry eye symptoms associated with their CVS goes away completely. That means patients can say goodbye to regular pain medication and artificial tears in most cases. This is a benefit that can't be understated and a difference in overall wellness that can't be denied.

An Ongoing Commitment to Patient Wellness

Dr. Choate and Dr. Goldsmith are both well-respected in the field of optometry and are active members in the community. Incorporating new technologies and new techniques into the practice is what has established them as eye care leaders in the greater Nashville area, throughout the state of Tennessee, and Southeastern region.
