Digital Retinal Photography
Digital retinal photography consists of a digital camera system that takes a photograph of your retina. Here is a summary of the benefits of Digital Retinal Photography:
There is no need to wait for results, our digital camera gives us the images within seconds for review. By looking at digital photos from previous years, your doctor can look for changes over time and determine if more aggressive treatments are necessary.
We recommend that all our patients receive this test. It is especially important for patients with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, flashes of light, floaters, headaches and those with a strong glass prescription.

ABQ Eye Care is proud to fit the most technologically advanced contact lenses for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and bifocals. We provide contact lenses in a wide variety ranging from rigid gas permeable to soft disposable, extended wear, contacts for astigmatism, as well as colored contacts and bifocal contacts. Dr. Chan also is proficient in specialty contact lenses, such as patients with high prescriptions, amblyopia (lazy eye), keratoconus, post-refractive surgery, and other hard-to-fit contact lens patients. Whether you have been unsuccessful on wearing contact lenses in the past, or if your present contact lenses are not giving you the best comfort or vision you want, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your options with you.
Orthokeratology (also known as corneal molding or corneal refractive therapy/CRT) is non-surgical, non-invasive option to correct for low amounts of near-sightedness or astigmatism. It is a clinical technique that uses specially designed rigid contact lenses to reshape the cornea to reduce refractive error. A specialized contact lens is worn overnight so that glasses or contact lenses do not need to be work during the day. If your child's prescription keeps going up every year or you cannot wear soft contact lenses, orthokeratology offers an alternative to have good visual acuity throughout the day.
Dr. Tony Chan was a pioneer in the field of vision therapy and Dr. Mamie Chan continues on the tradition. Vision therapy is a specialized program individually designed to improve vision skills in eye movement control, eye focusing (accommodation) and coordination, and the teaming of both eyes.It is a sequence of activities individually prescribed and monitored by the Dr. Chan to develop efficient visual skills and processing. It is prescribed after a comprehensive eye examination has been performed and has indicated that vision therapy is an appropriate treatment option. The vision therapy program is based on the results of standardized tests, the needs of the patient, and the patient's signs and symptoms.
