At Ducklo EyeCare, our commitment is to provide you with quality eye care. We strive to meet the highest standards of quality and service so that you and your family can enjoy your daily life with the clearest of vision.
In order to provide the very best in eye health care, we offer the latest in technologically advanced instrumentation with trained and experienced staff that are knowledgeable in the use of these tools. One of those instruments that our patients love the most is the Optomap. The Optomap enables Drs. Ducklo and Nash to see nearly the entire retina. Furthermore, it eliminates the discomfort and inconvenience associated with dilation. As a result, you will not experience blurred vision or sensitivity to light following your eye exam. It is important to note however, that should any abnormalities be detected or if we cannot obtain an acceptable image, dilation may be necessary.
