Eye Care Technology
in Seattle

Over the years, the team at C Fast Optometry has built up quite the collection of advanced medical technology and equipment to help us do what we do best — keep your eyes healthy and your vision clear.

Of course, while it’s our job to know how these machines work, we understand they may seem intimidating to patients. We’re always happy to answer your questions, but for your convenience, we decided to take the time to describe the various pieces of advanced technology we use, explaining exactly how each of these machines help us look for developing eye conditions and spot opportunities to support the lasting health of your eyes.

Here are some of the tools your Seattle eye doctors may use during your eye exam:

Wide-Angle Retinal Camera in Seattle, WA

Optos® Daytona: Wide-Angle Retinal Camera

This camera gives your Seattle optometrist a wide-angle view of your retina and takes a snapshot of your eye. It’s extremely useful for checking on your eye health, but to anyone aside from a trained eye doctor, the photos it takes may look like a thunderstorm.

Tomey RT-7000: Autorefractor / Keratometer / Topographer

A true three-in-one machine, the RT-7000 autorefractor and keratometer measure the front of your eye, which gives your eye doctor a good starting point for understanding your refraction — a major component in your vision prescription. The topographer maps your cornea’s physical features (much like an explorer might map a mountain range) so that your optometrist can fit you in the proper contact lenses.

Octopus 600: Visual Field Tester

We use the Octopus 600 to test your peripheral vision — which is more important than you might think. If you notice that your vision range has changed, or is changing, you should contact a doctor immediately — this is often related to systemic diseases in the brain.

icare® Tonometer: Intraocular Pressure Tester

This machine measures your intraocular pressure (IOP) — also known as internal eye pressure — without having to use eye drops or endure the discomfort of the conventional “air puff test.”

Reichert® Tono-Pen: Intraocular Pressure Tester

The Reichert Tono-Pen is yet another IOP measurement tool, but one used as part of a glaucoma screening. This machine does require eye drops, but gives a more accurate reading. And like the icare® Tonometer, it doesn’t involve puffs of air into your eye.

Our Commitment to Eye Care Technology

We recognize that cutting-edge eye care requires cutting-edge eye care technology. At C Fast Optometry, we’re committed to taking as much time as your eyes need during your appointment, but we also value your time and safety.

Along with this commitment to your convenience and quality of care, we give you easy access to great glasses by operating out of the unique, independent glasses store, Eyes On Fremont. Once you have a precise prescription, you’re just steps away from the coolest, well-made independent frames in the Seattle area.

To learn more about our eye care technology and how it can help you, call us at (206) 984-8112 or schedule an appointment online. We look forward to showing you what we can do!
