Start Early. Stay Healthy.
Start With Simple Steps
Before your child sees Dr. Kate Holthaus they experience 3 quick high definition scans for their prescription and ocular health. This allows their exam to be complete and efficient.
Glasses Prescription Scan: Through high definition scans, your glasses prescription is more detailed than ever before with little to no "which is better, 1 or 2" questioning.
No Puff Eye Pressure: No more scary puff of air directly into your eyes. With the iCare® Tonometer, we can determine your risk for glaucoma with no puff of air.
Retinal Scan: With scanning laser technology, we scan and capture 82% of your retina in one image, eliminating the need for most patients to be dilated.
