The Auto-Refractor is the first step to an eye exam.

 

This is called our pretest. This machine works by measuring how light is affected as it enters a person’s eye. With this technology, we are able to get an estimate of a patient’s prescription.

 

Followed By The Exam

 

Once the pretest with the Auto-Refractor is complete, the patient will join Dr Prewett in the examination room. The Doctor will fine tune the prescription given by the Auto-Refractor. This is also where he will determine if there are complications or procedures that need to be done such as retinal photos or dry eye treatments.

After the exam, our patient may be referred to any of the following stations:

The Diopsys & OCT

 

The MIBOFLO

 

iProfiler and iTerminal 2

 

WHAT THE BRAIN SEES

The DIOPSYS

  

The Diopsys helps us read brain waves that allow early detection of optic nerve disorders including Glaucoma, hypertension, diabetes, and visual loss. The Vision Center of Santa Maria is the only optometrist office on the Central Coast that has this technology available!

The OCT

 

The OCT, together with the Diopsys, is the most current addition to our exam process. This device takes pictures of the back of the eye to help us find inflammation and/or bleeding caused by diabetes, hypertension, or macular degeneration.

 

 

 

 

DRY EYE TREATMENT

The MIBOFLO

 
The tip of this hand held device warms to about 108 degrees. We then apply a small amount of ultrasound gel to the tip for comfort. We have the patient close their eyes and massage their eyelid in circular or back and forth motion with the warm tip.
 
The combination of the warmth and the massage get the glands working again as they are supposed to. Again, the Vision Center of Santa Maria is the only place on the Central Coast that has this technology available for their patients.

Dr. Prewett shares how the MiBoFlo works!

 

 

 

 

iProfiler and iTerminal 2

 
The iProfiler and the iTerminal 2 work together to give you the most precise refraction that can be given. 
 
 
The i.Profiler measures how light rays travel through the optical system and its accuracy is 1/100 of a diopter (10 times more accurate!). This allows your prescription lenses to help you not only in the day when there is a lot of light but also in the night when there is none. 

 

With the iTerminal 2, measurements are taken to make your lenses as personalized as possible by taking 5 different measurements (instead of just the PD). This enables us to produce a prescription that is 25 times more accurate!

"I have been going to Dr. Prewett for many years now and I can recommend him without reservation He is kind, generous and very knowledgeable. He is easy to work with and I feel has given me the best eye care and vision possible. In particular, Emma has the patience of a saint!!! I'm sure I stretch her to the max when choosing new glasses frames but she always acts like she has all the time in the world for me making sure that I am happy with both the frames and the lenses of my new glasses... I highly recommend this office for your vision needs."

Brooks T., San Luis Obispo, CA.

"My daughter and I went to three different places to purchase eyeglasses…When we went to the Vision Center, Daniel helped us order the Rayban lenses for $140.00! They had the best customer service! I would highly recommend going to speak to Daniel he was A A+ !"

"My first time coming here and this place is so amazing. So affordable and they have an amazing selection of glass and sunglasses. Emma and Senneca are so amazing. They are so friendly and have amazing customer service. I highly suggest going in for any and all of your glasses/sunglasses needs."

"I've been coming here for years. I have developed great relationships with some of the staff that has been here for years. Also, new staff members have been really helpful. I recommend this office to everyone I know."

Marcos R., Santa Maria, CA

"Their customer service is great! I used to go to two different optometry offices before becoming a patient here and I'm so glad I switched over here. The staff is always so helpful and not to mention they're all bilingual which it's a huge plus! They answered all my questions with such a friendly attitude. I was greeted as soon as I walked in. Their vibe is just awesome. I highly recommend! Thank you to Lucy who helped me choose some nice Gucci glasses I'm so in love with them."

Esme R., Santa Maria, CA

"I am glad I found this place. I had gone to another optometry office and it was not a great experience. As soon as I walked in I noticed how busy it was, but the receptionist acknowledged me right away. Esmeralda answered most of my questions but she made sure that an optician helped me with all my glasses needs. David made sure that all my questions were answered. My glasses took about a week to be ready, which was great! You have gained a long-time patient!"
