1) Clarifye reduces the guessing work during refraction

Are you one of the many individuals who feel anxious before undergoing an eye exam? Perhaps you've experienced concerns about making a wrong choice when asked, "Which is better, 1 or 2?" and worried that it might result in an inaccurate prescription. Rest assured, you're not alone in these feelings!


The good news is that Clarifye offers a refreshing change. This innovative system is specifically engineered to select the optimal starting point for your exam by leveraging sophisticated measurements of your eye. By minimizing the guesswork involved in the refraction process, Clarifye greatly enhances the precision of your prescription. Say goodbye to unnecessary anxiety and embrace the confidence that comes with a more accurate and reliable eye examination.


2) Clarifye provides optometrists with superior precision and accuracy

How? By offering an extensive array of information that surpasses the traditional eye exam process. Notably, Clarifye harnesses the power of wavefront technology to detect higher-order aberrations (HOA) and integrates a built-in corneal topographer, enabling us to visualize the precise curvature of the front of your eye.


Consequently, your refraction process becomes more streamlined, granting us additional time to engage in meaningful conversations about your eye health and vision concerns. With Clarifye's advanced capabilities, we can focus on providing you with the utmost care and attention you deserve, ensuring a comprehensive and insightful eye examination.

3) Clarify is kid-friendly

We LOVE seeing kids! They're full of energy and life, plus we know how exciting it is to get your first pair of glasses.


To ensure a smooth and effective pediatric eye exam, Clarifye has been specifically crafted with children in mind. We understand that fear, excitement, or a sudden bout of shyness can sometimes make it challenging for young ones to provide accurate feedback. That's where Clarifye comes in, acting as a valuable guide throughout the examination process.


Additionally, Clarifye offers a unique feature that allows you to witness a side-by-side comparison of how your child sees—an exciting and eye-opening experience for both children and parents alike. With Clarifye's kid-friendly approach and the fascinating insights it provides, we strive to create a comfortable and engaging environment for your child's eye care journey.


4) Clarifye maps the "digital fingerprint" of your eye

One of the significant advantages of the corneal topographer measurement is its impact on the diagnosis of corneal disorders, such as keratoconus.


With Clarifye's precise topographer at our disposal, we can more effectively identify and evaluate these conditions, enabling us to tailor the most appropriate treatment plans for our patients.


Furthermore, this advanced technology plays a crucial role in determining your suitability for LASIK surgery. By thoroughly examining the corneal topography and pachymetry, we can assess the feasibility and potential outcomes of LASIK, helping us make informed decisions and recommendations for your vision correction journey.

5) Clarifye improves contact lens evaluations

With Clarifye's advanced technology, we gain crucial insights into the power, shape, and size requirements specific to your eye. This means we can fine-tune the contact lens evaluation process, ensuring optimal comfort, clarity, and vision correction for you. Whether you're a new contact lens wearer or have been wearing them for years, Clarifye enables us to provide personalized and precise recommendations to meet your unique needs.


It's worth mentioning that our commitment to exceptional eye care extends to all motivated patients, including those seeking scleral lenses. With Clarifye's comprehensive evaluation capabilities, we can confidently fit and assess the suitability of various contact lens options, offering a wide range of choices to our patients.


6) Clarifye takes into account DAYTIME and NIGHTTIME vision

Do you ever find that your eyesight seems different when transitioning from day to night? It's not just your imagination – your pupils actually change size in response to the light levels around you. In darker environments, your pupils dilate or expand to let in more light. While this natural adaptation helps you see in the dark, it can sometimes result in blurry night vision if not properly addressed.


Thankfully, Clarifye offers precise measurements for both daytime and nighttime vision. With this advanced system, optometrists can simulate how your vision would appear during the day and at night. By doing so, we can effectively minimize any discomfort caused by glare, starbursts, or halos that often accompany nighttime vision.

7) Clarifye is 100% digital

Clarifye measurements are taken with state-of-the-art equipment and performed in 90 seconds or less. Once complete, these measurements are synced to your personal profile. From there, your refraction is performed and stored for access over time.

At the end of your exam, your optometrist can easily generate custom glasses and contact lens prescriptions within seconds!


8) Clarifye has built-in patient educational tools

One remarkable feature of Clarifye that I absolutely love is its inclusion of patient education tools. Being a firm believer in the power of knowledge, I am thrilled to see this feature in action!


With these tools at our disposal, we can provide you with invaluable information on a wide range of topics. From answering frequently asked questions to shedding light on various eye health and vision conditions, Clarifye empowers us to educate and enlighten you.


9) Clarifye reduces the time it takes to get an eye exam

In today's fast-paced and hectic world, time is a precious commodity. We understand the value you place on every minute of your day. That's why Clarifye is a game-changer in the realm of eye care.


By streamlining the examination process and utilizing advanced technology, Clarifye allows us to dedicate more time to you, our valued patient.


10) Clarifye compares your old and new prescriptions

Imagine having the power to see the difference in your glasses prescription before making a purchase. Thanks to an incredible advancement in eye care technology, this is now possible with Clarifye.


Once your new glasses prescription is determined, we can instantly display your old prescription side by side for easy comparison. This feature empowers you to experience the change firsthand before committing to new glasses.


How much does a Clarifye eye exam cost?

The truth is, it can vary depending on several factors. You might be surprised to learn that with certain insurances, Clarifye eye exams can be as affordable as zero dollars.


However, if you don't have insurance coverage, the cost of a Clarifye eye exam at our office is $148. This comprehensive package includes a thorough evaluation of your eye health and vision, optomap digital retinal imaging, and a glasses prescription.


Is a Clarifye eye exam right for you?

Absolutely! If you haven't already, I highly encourage you to schedule an appointment to SEE and experience Clarifye for yourself! :)
