Arena Eyeworks Leads The Nation...
July 1, 2006: Arena Eyeworks is designated by a group of industry leaders as their 'Practice of the Future' for San Diego County. "We have chosen Arena Eyeworks Optometry as our model showcase for embracing and incorporating the latest integrated technologies from the major players in the eye care field," says industry expert Bill Hatch in awarding this coveted honor to Dr. Goldsmid, his staff and associate Doctors.
October 1, 2005: Arena Eyeworks is selected to fit the first patient on a world-wide basis with the newly FDA approved hybrid "High Definition" SynergEyes contact lens. The central gas permeable portion of the lens is designed to neutralize higher order aberrations for optimized visual acuity, while the soft periphery offers stability, and comfort. This technology will now enable the fitting of contact lenses for those patients requiring the vision of a rigid contact lens yet desiring the comfort of a soft contact lens and will also address the fitting of more complex irregular corneal contours.
May 15, 2004: Arena Eyeworks is chosen as one of the first three investigation sites in the country for the award winning Z-View Aberrometer. This device replaces several tests currently performed in the eye doctor's office and provides the most complete and accurate account of the patient's optical errors and imperfections. Because of this superior capability to measure for these imperfections, the vision correction prescription is superior to the current 20/20 benchmark and provides "high definition" vision. The result is customized wavefront-guided spectacle and contact lenses which can reduce glaring, blurring and improve night vision.
Jan 18, 2003: The first of its kind CustomLASIK procedure in California was officially performed by our lasik specialist at our laser facility today. "This event marks the beginning of a new era in refractive surgery. With CustomLASIK, night symptoms are virtually eliminated, and refractive outcomes are more precise with patients having a greater chance of achieving 20/20 or better vision", says center representative, Brett Braun.
Aug 1, 2002: Arena Eyeworks is one of the first optometric practices in the U.S. to introduce the Panoramic 200 retinal imaging system. This VirtualPoint laser technology provides our patients with advanced early disease detection capability and is the first system capable of generating the most comprehensive image of the retina without the inconvenience of pupil dilation. At the push of a button, a digitized scan of the retina is instantly generated.
Dec 10, 2001: Arena Eyeworks Optometry is selected to be the very first practice in the nation to offer Focus Night & Day contact lenses for 30 Day Extended Wear use.
