The AdaptDx® is the first instrument to provide a practical and objective measurement of dark adaptation function, which is severely impaired in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and other macular degenerations.  We have just installed this technology in our office to help in the early diagnosis and treatment of AMD.  This instrument will also aide in diagnosis of night blindness.

Dr. Robert Gaetano of Vision Care Associates was invited by Bausch and Lomb to attend the B&L 2017 Symposium in February 2017 in San Francisco , California . Dr Gaetano was chosen as one of the few optometrists in the entire United States as a consultant to help launch the new Biotrue single use daily disposable lens for astigmatism & presbyopia (multifocal/bifocal need). 

Less than 300 practitioners from all over the globe were invited to attend this monumental event in San Francisco.

Since Dr. Gaetano helped launch the new lenses he has returned to Vision Care Associates and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to make these special lenses available to patients in the Youngstown area that are not available in most any other practice nationwide ! So if you were ever told you were not a good candidate for contact lenses because of astigmatism, needed reading glasses or bifocals or just dry eyes, now you may qualify to try these amazing new lenses!  Call us today for more information!!
