When 12-year-old Emily* first complained she couldn’t see clearly, her mother assumed she simply wanted to be like some of her friends who wore glasses. After months passed and the complaints continued, Emily and her mother visited Dr. Mojgan Besharat at Store 1319 in Durham, North Carolina.

Dr. Besharat, who has been affiliated with LensCrafters for 14 years, is one of 175 LensCrafters locations using AccuExam, the innovative digital eye exam technology that offers the most comprehensive eye health and vision assessment available. Using AccuExam’s Diagnostic Screen, Dr.Besharat showed Emily’s mother exactly what her daughter’s world looked like with and without vision correction.

“Imagine a clear scene of a beach,” said Dr. Besharat. “Then imagine that beach as washed out and blurry as an Impressionist painting. That is how Emily saw everything. Without AccuExam’s ability to show these kinds of differences, I’m not sure her mother would have understood just how poorly her daughter was seeing. In that moment, her mother realized her daughter had probably needed glasses for more than a year.”

That’s just one example of the power of AccuExam to transform the eye exam experience not only for patients but also for the doctors affiliated with LensCrafters.

“Showing patients what’s happening with their vision is always better than telling them” said Dr. Besharat.“The Vue Simulator and videos give both the doctor and the patient visuals that provide multiple levels of information. For example, when you talk astigmatism to a patient, it sounds a little crazy but when you can show the topography of the eye, it makes sense to patients immediately.“AccuExam makes me a better clinician because I can pick up eye diseases and degeneration earlier.”

Dr. Jeff Stovall, who has been using AccuExam since April at Store 168 in Atlanta, Georgia, agrees. Within the first few days of using AccuExam, he diagnosed a patient in his mid-50s in the early stages of cortical cataracts.

“I used AccuExam’s Point Spread Function to show the patient how light would ‘star-burst’ in his eyes with and without correction. With the Vue Simulator, I showed him how his vision will change as the cataracts mature overtime, and with the Digital Lens screen that features two images of a butterfly, I was able to explain how a digital-surface technology (DST) lens will improve his visual comfort. All of this occurred within the first few minutes of our conversation. The patient said that this was, by far, the most thorough eye exam he had ever had. He scheduled his wife to have an exam.

Drs. Stovall and Besharat believe AccuExam experience, which is exclusive to LensCrafters, will set the brand apart as leaders in the eye care industry for the quality of care they provide in such meaningful ways.

LensCrafters will launch AccuExam in 50 more affiliated offices in 2015. Stay tuned for more updates!
