The doctors of Tatum Eyecare place a high emphasis on patient care. All exams are scheduled on the half hour. This gives our optometrists ample time to spend with each patient to understand their needs, diagnose their visual condition and explain the patient's options. Our doctors believe that by investing in the latest technology we can continue to practice on the cutting edge of optometry and deliver the highest possible patient care. From our high tech retinal imaging equipment to our patient friendly eye pressure tests, you can be assured of getting the most comprehensive and comfortable eye exam!

Optos Retinal Scanning Laser
Not a big fan of the dilation drops? Don’t want to spend the next 5 hours with blurred vision? With the Optos technology we can greatly reduce the need to dilate our patients. The picture of the back of the eye produced by the Optos is over 4 times wider than with standard techniques through an undilated pupil. This means the doctors can evaluate the health of the back of your eye without the need for drops. Please check out the Optos website to truly appreciate this amazing piece of equipment.
Kowa Retinal Camera
It is true that the Optos camera gives us a wider field of view than the traditional retinal camera. However, the retinal camera gives us a much more detailed view of the central portion of the retina. We reserve this equipment when close monitoring and evaluation of the blood vessels, macula and optic nerve are needed!
The Dreaded Puff Test.
No one likes the puff test. And at Tatum Eyecae, we don’t like it either. So we went out and did something about it.
We recently purchased two ICare handheld tonometers (device for measuring eye pressure). These instruments allow us to take a pressure measurement in seconds without the puff of air. So easy, we can even use them on kids. For those traditionalists that still like the excitement of the puff, we also have the industry’s softest air puff tonometer.
