We are excited to have Dr. Trisha Morehouse here helping us see patients. 

A little bit about her is She is married, has 3 young kids, lives in Brookings now but grew up in Parkston SD. She comes from an Ophthalmology clinic background so she is excited about the technology we have here to earlier detect any eye diseases.

 Give us a call today to set up your annual exam with Dr. Morehouse. We can't wait for our patients to meet her.









Technology is rapidly changing the eye care industry. At Weiss Eyecare Clinic we offer the newest in technology.



LipiView Interferometer

This tool will help to identify the type of Dry Eye Disease you may have by doing a few different tests to determine if the symptoms and issues stem from oil layer deficiencies or the water layer of your tear film. From there the doctor will be able recommend the best kind of treatment needed from the full assessment.

One of the types of treatment the doctor may recommend due to the severity is the Lipiflow procedure itself. This is just an amazing new advancement in technology to help with Dry Eye Disease and we are SO excited to be able to offer it to our patients!!

This procedure is not painful whatsoever and is actually kind of relaxing. The applicators are put on to the eyelids and heat up to a comfortable 108 degree temperature and massage the Meibomian Glands, which are what produces the oily portion of our tears to keep our eye moist, and by doing this it can release any debris or blockage and get those glands functioning again to help with those annoying discomforts. If you would like more information or to set up your Lipiview full assessment, please give us a call. We would love to answer any questions you may have.






The TearLab Osmolarity System is intended to measure the osmolarity of human tears to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye disease in patients suspected of having dry eye disease, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation.






OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)

The OCT is used for taking cross-sectional pictures of the retina. The retina is located at the back of your eye. It is used to diagnose and follow treatment in certain eye conditions and diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other diseases affecting the macula.





OptoMap Retinal Imaging

The optomap retinal imaging is a low-powered scanning laser that digitally scans the retina. It gives the Doctors a 200 degree view to check the health of the back of the eye for earlier detection of any eye diseases.

OptoMap Retinal Imaging benefits include:

  • A wide field of view of the retina which cannot be achieved with conventional cameras.
  • A permanent record of your retina for future comparison.
  • Early detection of eye diseases and disorders.
  • No need for dilation drops.
  • The process is comfortable & stress free as it is non-invasive
  • Suitable for all ages including children.
  • You can have Optomap taken even if you have cataracts, glaucoma, small pupils or don't like bright lights!






MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density)

The MPOD measures how thick or thin the Macular Pigment is in your eye. Macular Pigment is a layer in your eye that protects your eyes from the harmful blue rays of the sun. The MPOD then gives the doctor and idea of how thick or thin that Macular Pigment is in your eye and the risk factor of getting AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) in the future.






 Autorefractor/Keratometer/Tonometer Unit

The autorefractor portion takes an approximate of the correction needed for the patient. The Keratometer portion takes measurements of the curvature of the eye which is used for many things, one example being contact lenses. The tonometer checks the pressure in your eyes. Abnormal pressures can be a sign of glaucoma.






Auto Lensometer

This lensometer reads the prescription of the patient's glasses for verification and to compare what their glasses prescription is to what the doctor is finding for their prescription.







Visual Field Analyzer

The Visual Field tests for any visual field loss centrally and peripherally. It is ideal for detecting visual field loss associated with glaucoma and other eye diseases.
