The Atlantic Optical Difference!
Our company motto is
helping everyone to meet their visual needs.
At Atlantic Optical, we are
dedicated to providing each of our customers the opportunity to have
20/20 vision. We believe that everyone should have the right to enjoy
100% clear vision!
A top priority of ours is to invest in the
latest eye care technology in order to make sure our customers have the
ability to have better vision.
Our offices include the latest
visual field by Zeiss, A visual field test is an examination that may be
performed to analyze a patient's visual field. The exam may be performed
by a technician in one of several ways. The test may be performed by a
technician directly, with the assistance of a machine, or completely by
an automated machine. Machine based tests aid diagnostics by allowing a
detailed printout of the patient's visual field.
coherence tomography (OCT)
OCT delivers high resolution because it is
based on light, rather than sound or radio frequency. An optical beam is
directed at the tissue, and a small portion of this light that reflects
from sub-surface features is collected. Note that most light is not
reflected but, rather, scatters. The scattered light has lost its
original direction and does not contribute to forming an image but
rather contributes to glare.
The glare of scattered light causes
optically scattering materials (e.g., biological tissue, candle wax, or
certain plastics) to appear opaque or translucent even while they do not
strongly absorb light (as can be ascertained through a simple experiment
-e.g., shining a red laser pointer through one's finger).
the OCT technique, scattered light can be filtered out, completely
removing the glare. Even the very tiny proportion of reflected light
that is not scattered can then be detected and used to form the image
in, e.g., a scanning OCT system employing a microscope.
have the latest automated refractors is a computer-controlled machine
used during an eye examination to provide an objective measurement of a
person's refractive error and prescription for glasses or contact
lenses. This is achieved by measuring how light is changed as it enters
a person's eye.
We believe in fast and efficient service. A
majority of our customers enjoy receiving their prescription eyewear
within 1 hour, and contact lens wearers are usually notified for pick up
the next day after their visit. The reason we are able to provide this
fast service is because of our long time relationship with the
industryâ€™s biggest manufactures. We are very proud to announce our
acquisition of the Mr. Blue Lens Edging System in 2010. This system
allows us to process very complex glasses at a much faster rate,
achieving very accurate prescriptions.
We would like our
customers to be able to choose correct eyewear; we have the most
luxurious brands. We can also make our customers happy by providing them
with modern and inexpensive glasses.
