During Dr. Fier’s 35+ years of treating patients, he has brought many diagnostic and treatment technologies to the Treasure Coast and was the first to use:
- BAT (Brightness Acuity Test) and Contrast Sensitivity to better diagnose a patient’s “real life” vision
- PAM (Potential Acuity Meter) to give patients and doctors a realistic idea of visual outcomes following surgery
- Endothelial Cell Counter to assess the health of the cornea preoperatively
- Computerized measurements of the length of the eye for more accurate implant determination
- Ultraviolet filters in the implant and protect the eye and improving vision in bright sunlight and at nighttime
- GDx and GDx II and now OCT testing technology to measure optic nerve disease for glaucoma
- Computerized visual fields for glaucoma or neurological disease
- SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) and (ECP) Endocyclophotocoagulation lasers to painlessly treat glaucoma unresponsive to drop therapy
- Mitomycin enhanced trabeculectomy to improve outcomes of glaucoma surgery by reducing scarring.
Mini-Express Shunts in glaucoma surgery
- LASIK to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
- Fundus Photography and Digital Fluorescein Angiography to diagnose ARMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration) and Retinal Disease
- OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) to treat ARMD and Diabetic Retinal Disease
Dr. Fier also participated in the largest study in the U.S. (20,000 cataract surgeries) to determine safe anesthesia methods during surgery. He was also on the forefront of implanting new technology IOL’s (Intraocular Lenses) giving patients the ability to see far away and close up without the use of glasses.
As always, the doctors and staff at Fier Eye Care remain passionate about maintaining “The Best in Sight.”
