Executive Wellness Exams In Utah
ClearVision Institute and our sister location in Eugene, Oregon offer our patients Executive Wellness Exams to further ensure the health of their eyes. In addition to a routine eye exam by your eye doctor, an executive wellness exam includes a suite of diagnostics to assess your eyes health which screen for a variety of conditions that may not be visible with an initial routine eye exam. These additional diagnostics include:
- Panoramic Retinal Imaging
- Corneal Galilei Topography & Tomography
- Optical Coherence Tomography & Angiography
Here at our South Jordan facility, as well as our sister location in Eugene, Oregon, we are proud to offer these additional services as part of our Executive Wellness Exam.
Panoramic Retinal Imaging
Photography of the retina (even through an undilated pupil) allows early detection, analysis, and monitoring of conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, neurologic or autoimmune conditions (e.g., lupus or multiple sclerosis) which can affect nerve and vascular tissue.
Corneal Galilei Topography & Tomography
Using two cameras to assess the corneal surface shape and cross-section, this test informs your
doctor about the curvature of the front and back of the cornea, and the corneal thickness.
These are important for the early diagnosis of conditions such as keratoconus and map-dot-fingerprint dystrophy, as well as assessment of astigmatism and whether you could be a good candidate for LASIK.
Optical Coherence Tomography & Angiography
OCT and OCT-A provide high-resolution structural scans of the retina, retinal vessels, nerve layer thickness, and the optic nerve itself. These pictures and analytic data help your doctor determine if you have early signs of macular degeneration or glaucoma, and also if you have any blood vessel deficits in the eye from diabetes, mini-strokes. Analysis of the retinal neural and vascular tissue is also helpful in the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
The tears are the first thing light strikes when it enters your eye. Assessing tear quality and tear gland density is very helpful for your doctor to help take care of your vision and eye comfort. The meibomian glands in the eyelids make critical components of the tears and can be damaged by screen time, age, diet, and air pollution, leading to dry eye or eyelid inflammation. Early detection can allow intervention to save your meibomian glands, help reduce dry eye, and protect the surface of the eye for years to come.
