20/20 Vision Center is proud to bring our patients the i.Terminal by ZEISS, a unique integrated optical measurement system that combines a new level of fitting and measurement precision. Our patients rely on their new eye wear to provide them with consistently clear, comfortable vision and they have come to expect only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship from 20/20 Vision Center.
To help us to deliver the best accuracy possible—especially for the newest free-form and digitally-surfaced multi-focal lens designs—20/20 Vision Center decided to bring you the iTerminal. In one simple process, i.Terminal Advanced Measurement Technology delivers superior fitting accuracy for optimum progressive lens performance. The instrument automatically takes key measurements of the new eye glass frames you select from our optical, and allows us to provide you with advanced progressive lens customization using the very latest free-form lens making technology. We are the only eye care office in Fort Collins to provide you with this technology.

Digital Retinal Imaging
We use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes, which allows the doctor to evaluate the health of the back of the eye, the retina. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina.
This is very important in assisting your Optometrist to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.
The advantages of digital imaging include:
- Quick, safe, non-invasive and painless
- Provides detailed images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes
- Provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue
- Image resolution is extremely high quality
- Uses eye-safe near-infra-red light
- No patient prep required
Corneal topography, also known as photokeratoscopy or videokeratography, is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision.
The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK and evaluation of its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses. Corneal Topography measures thousands of points on the cornea, providing detailed information about it's shape. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.

Visual Field Testing
A visual field test measures how much 'side' vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Essentially lights are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. Your head is kept still and you have to place your chin on a chin rest. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check that you are concentrating.
We include the Humphrey Field Analyzer in our high-tech lineup because it is the accepted standard of care in glaucoma diagnosis and management. The Humphrey Field Analyzer is a highly advanced instrument which includes a multitude of features.
If during your comprehensive examination other tests or symptoms indicate a possible problem, the doctors at 20/20 Vision Center will likely recommend you receive the detailed visual field testing that only the Humphrey Field Analyzer can provide. Unlike the FDT, which only takes 35 seconds per eye, the more extensive testing on the Field Analyzer can take up to 7 minutes per eye. Some of the reasons 20/20 Vision Center brings you this technology include that it helps to meticulously track any vision loss associated with eye disease or other health problems. Patients who may be suffering from any of the following should expect to undergo a field test: glaucoma, retinal detachments and disease, brain tumors, optic tract lesions, Multiple Sclerosis, and a variety of other conditions.
