Brewer Eye Associates Gives Back
At Brewer Eye Associates, we love giving back to our community, as well as other communities. Dr. Brewer and her team have regularly been a part of OneSight.
OneSight is the independent nonprofit with the solutions, people and resources to eradicate the vision care crisis for good. We believe that when the world sees better, the world lives better—and that with clear vision, we can take on humanity’s greatest challenges. Together with donors, volunteers, partners and sponsors, we bring eye exams, glasses and permanent vision centers to the individuals and places that need eye care the most. We’ve impacted over 37 million people in 53 countries and counting—creating opportunity and sustainable change along the way. And to think, it all started in 1988 with an idea to give away 25 pairs of glasses to local kids who couldn’t afford them.
Great social distancing and covid procedures, reception was extremely friendly and helpful, Dr. Rivera was amazing and thorough and made my step mom (who has had so many bad experiences in the past) feel comfortable and cared for.
They are very friendly. The office is very clean. Explain everything to me that I could understand. All the staff there make you feel very welcome. I would recommend them to very one. Thank you!
Excellent care for my daughter Mia. Excellent. Super friendly, professional and clean. Thank you for helping me make my daughters first experience with having to get glasses so easy and smooth.
Our office provides state of the art optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging. The optomap is a digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology. It is the only technology that can capture 82% view of your retina at one time. The images are created by non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers with no adverse health effects and safe for all ages. The imaging takes less than a second and may help your eye doctor detect problems more quickly and easily. Some of the first signs of diseases such as stroke, diabetes and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms can be detected by the ultra-widefield imaging. Unlike traditional retinal exams, the optomap image can be saved for future comparisons.
