EyeWorks’ Twelve Days Of Giving Campaign Raised $2400 For Local Charities

EyeWorks’ Twelve Days of Giving Campaign raised $2400 for local charities. Patients who purchased glasses in December from the Keene eye care center chose one of four charities for EyeWorks to donate on their behalf. Pictured with Dr. Barton Higley of EyeWorks (center) are the non-profit recipients (L to R): Tracie Lavertue, EyeWorks paraoptometric assistant and former Joy’s Network client; Mindy Cambiar, the executive director of Hundred Nights Shelter; Kathy Collinsworth, executive director of the Monadnock Humane Society; and Alicia Deaver, executive director of Rise for baby & family.

EyeWorks Expands Eye Imaging Capabilities

Keene, NH: EyeWorks, the independent optometry practice/optical boutique located at 474 West Street, Keene, recently purchased a CLARUS 500 Fundus Camera to captures ultra-wide retinal images. These images help with the early detection of such eye diseases like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.

“We purchased the new retinal camera because of its enhanced ability to magnify what can be seen in the retinal periphery and capture those images clearly and with color accuracy. Eye health diagnostics and eye disease management benefit from the availability of ultra-wide images” says EyeWorks’ owner and Doctor of Optometry, Barton Higley. “One of our commitments to our patients is that we will always give them a very high standard of care. One of the ways that we do that is to stay current with new technologies, so we’re happy to have this ability to capture more, and better, information.”

EyeWorks purchased the ultra-widefield retinal camera to replace a digital camera still widely used by most optometrists. EyeWorks uses two other highly advanced technologies, the Diopsys VEP vision test and the LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System. The vision test measures the function of the entire vision system, particularly helpful in testing young children and patients who have lost the ability to speak. The LipiFlow System treats patients for one of the causes of dry eye, Meibomian gland dysfunction; and EyeWorks is the only optometry practice in the region offering this treatment.

EyeWorks is a full-service optometry practice offering personalized eye care services by a highly skilled and committed staff. Services include pediatric eyecare, dry eye treatment, and surgical co-management. It also has a reputation for precise vision exams and eyewear of superior quality. Lenses and frames are warrantied, adjustments and repairs are provided free of charge, and it guarantees 100% customer satisfaction.

Another terrific experience. I had to have my lenses replaced in some sunglasses almost 2 yrs after I purchased them. They were still under warranty. Eyewear is a pay for what you get situation and these guys have a great selection and range.

Amazing service! I needed an exam and glasses before leaving for vacation the same day as my appointment. They got my exam done, suggested awesome new contacts, and I walked out with new glasses in my hand. Highly recommended.

Had my first eye exam here today and it was amazing. The staff is pleasant. For the past few years I have struggled with finding an eye Dr who could get my contact lens prescription correct. I have a pretty significant astigmatism and time after time, my contacts never feel like the fit right. Thankful for Dr. Higley really taking time to make sure it was correct!
