OCT Retina Picture

2) New Cirrus Photo/OCT Continued... 

Uptown Eyecare is proud to announce that we now have the very latest in imaging technology…Cirrus Photo by Zeiss!

Saving time and space, this revolutionary instrument combines a retinal camera with the powerful scanning laser (also known as OCT – optical coherence tomography) that can facilitate evaluation, and help to monitor and follow-up optic nerve and macular pathologies.

Uptown EyeCare is excited to have this invaluable tool not only for clinical diagnosis, but also for patient education, doctor-to-doctor communication and co-management. No more referrals to other clinics for retinal or optic nerve imaging, we brought the technology in-house and can now image, observe and manage most ocular diseases with this amazing instrument. The OCT test takes only about 10 minutes and it is completely pain-free.

Feel free to contact our practice to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment!
Dailies Total Flyer

3) Dailies Continued...

Introducing the world’s first and only Water Gradient Contact Lens – Dailies Total 1 by Alcon!

In the summer of 2013 Uptown Eyecare was selected as one of the premier offices in Oregon to offer Dailies Total 1 contact lenses by Alcon! The Dailies Total 1 is one of the most exceptional contact lenses on the market. This brand new lens is the first water gradient lens ever developed, with the outermost surface being actually close to 100% water. This makes the lens bond with your existing tear film, making the lens feel as natural as possible on your eye.

Not only is the hydrophilic nature a factor in comfort, but also Dailies Total 1 is 6x more breathable than the leading daily disposable lens. Higher oxygen transmissibility through the contact lens allows the wearer all-day comfort and also promotes clearer, healthy-looking eyes. The Dailies Total 1 contact lens is an incredible advancement in eye health technology, and after 10 years of development, this lens has surpassed all previous standards of comfort and optical quality.

LA Loop Picture

4) La LOOP Continued...

With styles for both men & women, La LOOP is perfect for everyone on your gift list!

Here at Uptown Eyecare & Optical, we’ve been on the lookout for a fresh, modern way to keep our glasses handy that doesn’t remind us of wearing our grandmother’s eyeglass chains. We had been looking high and low, and during our last trip to Vision Expo in October, we finally found it….La LOOP! 

Tired of constantly misplacing her glasses, entrepreneur and mother of three Elizabeth Fauraut was determined to develop a product that could not only keep track of her glasses, but could also be a stylish accessory. And so La LOOP was born. La LOOP’s patented hinge sets it apart from other eyewear accessories. This hinge uses 360-degree swivel technology to ensure that glasses stay safe and in place, without bending, twisting or falling. The loop sits at the bottom of stunning, stylish and modern necklaces made from high-end materials including Italian leather, sterling silver, coral, turquoise & gemstones. With designs for both men and women, La LOOP is the chic contemporary eyewear accessory for everyone!

The La LOOP collection can be found at Marc Le Bihan stores in France and in specialty boutiques worldwide such as Bergdorf Goodman and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.  Now it’s finally available in Portland at Uptown Eyecare & Optical! Stop by to learn why La LOOP is the newest accessory you won’t be able to live without!
CRT Picture

5) Corneal Refractive Therapy Continued... 

CRT is a method of reshaping the cornea of your eye by wearing contact lenses while you sleep without permanently altering its physiology. When you wake up, you remove the contact lenses and enjoy clear vision all day long. It's that simple!
If you are a soft contact lens wearer that is experiencing contact lens discomfort because of dryness or allergies, this is an exciting option for you. Having no lenses on your eyes during waking hours allows healthy, unobstructed access to oxygen and freedom from lens discomfort. If you are considering LASIK, but are worried about the long-term effects or want a non-permanent form of vision correction, CRT might be a better option for you. If initiated early enough in childhood for nearsighted children, CRT can also effectively decrease the risk of myopia progression and kids are free of contacts and glasses during the day.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Friberg who is certified to fit CRT lenses today and see if this is the solution you’ve been looking for!

6) HSA Continued...

Time is running out…. Don’t let your flex account

The end of the year is approaching quickly. What better way to get ready for another year than resolving to have your best possible vision? Health Savings Accounts (HSA) & Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) have only a limited amount of time for you to spend your hard earned pre-tax money. 

Don’t forget that eyewear is considered a medical device and can be paid for with these types of accounts!  It’s a great time to get that pair of glasses you’ve had your eye on, or a new pair of sunglasses so you are ready for the spring.  It’s even a perfect time to invest in additional pairs of glasses so you can expand your eyeglass wardrobe!  Need more contacts?  Don’t worry, your hsa/fsa account will cover those as well!  If your prescriptions have expired, now is the perfect time to come in and have all of your eyewear needs taken care of. Call us at 503-228-3838 to schedule your annual eye exam. While you are here utilizing your hsa/fsa account, don’t forget to bring your existing pairs of glasses to have them adjusted.

Every three to four months your glasses should be tightened and adjusted so we can keep them in tip top shape!  Our ABO Certified Opticians are here 6 days a week to help with all of your adjustment needs. 

All of us at Uptown Eyecare & Optical look forward to seeing you before the end of 2013!
