staff at Carolinas Vision Group in Ballantyne did their part to protect people's eyes. The practice gave away 3,000 pairs of special glasses to patients and others in the community so they could safely view the eclipse. Day to day, Carolina Vision offers an assortment of advanced technologies geared toward making the lives of patients easier and healthier. Optomap retinal imag- ing, for example, lets doctors take images of the retina in the back of the eye, including the optic nerve and blood vessels, to watch for changes over time. Orthokeratology is a non-surgical procedure that elimi- nates the need for glasses or daytime contact lenses. A specially designed contact lens that patients wear while sleeping at night gently reshapes the eye. This is a popular option for children too young to have correc- tive surgery. "It's like a retainer that retains the shape of fixed teeth as they are growing," Knudson says. Since opening the practice in 2007, he is pleased to see the area's growth and its impact on services. "The medi- cal offerings in Ballantyne are incredible," he says. "They have grown and continue to improve with time."
