Eye Exams Matter: Reason #10 — Patient Enjoying Life AFter Digital Eye Exam

Talk about complex—our eyes have 2 million working parts. Regular eye exams help keep all 2 million of them working seamlessly so you don’t miss a detail.

A married couple found out more about how complex their eyes are when they scheduled an eye exam with Dr. Alice Tien, who used AccuExam to examine the two patients. Dr. Tien was able to explain the complex nature of their individual eye diseases to them and their daughter, who also wanted to be better informed about the nature of her parents’ eye health.

Through the efforts of Dr. Tien, this family understands the importance of maintaining eye health with regular eye exams.

Learn more about the patients’ experience from Dr. Tien, below:


“I recently had the pleasure of examining an 85-year-old gentleman and his wife using AccuExam. His chief complaint was that although he’d seen an ophthalmologist for years for treatment of his glaucoma, they never got his prescription right and he could no longer enjoy watching TV. His wife suffered for years with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a disease that caused vision loss in the center of her field of vision, and was having a difficult time reading and watching TV with her husband. Utilizing LensCrafters’ exclusive eye technology—AccuExam, I was able to address their individual concerns and explain their eye diseases to them and their daughter, who had never really understood how Glaucoma and AMD were affecting her parents.

In the end, his wife bought one pair of bifocals for her hobby of reading and watching TV, and also a pair of sunglasses to protect her eyes. He purchased a pair of glasses for watching TV, and a pair of bifocals for his everyday life. He and his wife were so happy and appreciative they can enjoy watching TV together again.

Before they left, their daughter thanked me for showing her what her parents had been suffering through for years, and told me it made her more conscious about her own annual eye exam. She was so impressed with the eye exam experience that she plans to schedule an exam for her and the rest of her family.  This story warms my heart and Iappreciate how AccuExam allows me to serve my patients to the fullest.”
