Eye Health Technology,

Elkhorn, NE

At Omaha Primary EyeCare in Elkhorn, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest advancements in eye health technology. Our eye care professionals use cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat a wide variety of eye conditions. 

Here are some of the advanced eye health technologies we use: 


Corneal mapping

Corneal mapping, also known as corneal topography, is a diagnostic tool that maps the curvature and shape of your cornea. This technology helps us diagnose and manage conditions like astigmatism, keratoconus, and irregular corneal surfaces. By creating a detailed map of your cornea, we can determine the most appropriate contact lens fit, evaluate your suitability for LASIK and refractive surgeries, and monitor the progression of corneal diseases. 


Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Optical coherence tomography or OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique used to visualize the structures within the eye. OCT enables us to see the layers of the retina in incredible detail, which can be helpful in detecting and treating eye conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. With OCT, our experienced optometrists can provide accurate diagnoses and develop tailored treatment plans for your specific needs. 


Optomap® retinal exam

At Omaha Primary EyeCare, we offer the Optomap® retinal exam as part of our comprehensive eye exams. This advanced imaging technology provides our doctors with a panoramic view of the retina, enabling us to detect early signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of eye disease is crucial in preventing vision loss and maintaining overall eye health. The Optomap® retinal exam allows our doctors to detect and monitor changes in the retina over time, enabling us to develop personalized treatment plans for our patients. 


Visual field testing

Visual field testing is a crucial diagnostic tool for eye doctors. It can help detect a range of eye conditions including glaucoma, optic nerve damage, brain damage, and more. These conditions can cause gradual vision loss, but symptoms may not show up until significant damage has already occurred. Visual field testing allows our eye doctor to catch these conditions early and monitor their progression. 

Diagnosis and treatment for dry eye

Dry eye syndrome can negatively impact your vision and your quality of life. Our team at Omaha Primary EyeCare specializes in diagnosing and treating dry eye syndrome to provide lasting relief. Following a comprehensive dry eye evaluation, our eye doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan to effectively manage and alleviate your dry eye symptoms. We offer a range of treatments for dry eye, including:


LipiFlow® thermal pulsation system

The LipiFlow® thermal pulsation system is an advanced treatment specifically designed to address meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), which is a leading cause of dry eye syndrome. The meibomian glands are responsible for producing the oily component of tears, which helps prevent tears from evaporating too quickly and keeps the eyes lubricated.  

During a LipiFlow® treatment session, a specially designed device gently applies controlled heat and pulsating pressure to the eyelids. This combination of warmth and pressure helps unclog and unblock the meibomian glands, restoring their proper function and allowing for healthier tear production. 


OptiLight IPL therapy

We provide Optilight intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy as a non-invasive treatment for dry eye syndrome. IPL therapy targets the underlying causes of dry eye by stimulating the meibomian glands and reducing inflammation. This therapy can improve the quality and quantity of tears, relieving discomfort and improving eye health. 


BlephEx® eyelid exfoliation treatment

BlephEx® treatment is a procedure specially designed for the treatment of blepharitis. Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelids that can lead to more severe eye issues such as dry eyes, styes, and even permanent damage to your eyesight. BlephEx® is a painless, in-office procedure designed to treat blepharitis by removing scurf, debris, and bacterial biofilm from the eyelid margins. During the treatment, the doctor uses a handheld device with a spinning micro-sponge to gently clean the eyelid margins, removing any accumulated debris and bacteria that might cause inflammation. The BlephEx® treatment typically takes around 10-15 minutes and can be completed in a single visit to our eye doctor’s office.
