Technological advances in diagnostic tools and treatments have made many changes to clinical optometry care. We readily embrace these advances and are excited to be able to offer our patients the latest technology to diagnose, manage and treat many eye conditions.
- OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) Scanning
- Optos Optomap Ultra-Wide Digital Retinal Imaging
- Retinal Photography
- Visual Fields Analysis
- Oculus Dry Eye Screening
- IPL (Intense Pulsed Lights) Treatments
- Blephasteam Treatments
OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography
Our OCT machine allows us to scan through the various layers of the eye, to see beneath the surface. This gives us a much more advanced view of the structures than a retinal photograph can produce.
This gives us the ability to assess an monitor many sight threatening ocular conditions including:
- Macular degeneration- assessment of wet type versus dry
- Macular holes and vitreous traction
- Plaquenil screening
We have been making use of retinal photography for many years and are highly skilled in its use. Taking photos is one thing but accurate and careful analysis of the results is the key to effectiveness.
Digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to take photographs of the inside of your eye. This allows your optometrist to assess the health of your retina and to detect and manage eye and health conditions, including glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
A visual field test is an eye examination that can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, pituitary disease, brain tumours or other neurological deficits.
The E>Eye Medical Grade IPL device is the first and only Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device in the world, specifically designed for the treatment of dry eye syndrome due to the Meibomian Glands Dysfunction (MDG).
Blephasteam is a convenient in-office treatment for Meibomian gland dysfunction. Blephasteam uses the power of moisture and heat to provide a warm chamber with a set temperature that’s very beneficial to the eyes. The combined heat and moisture will increase blood flow and melt the waxy meibum to help relieve dry eyes. After each session, the now-melted secretions are manually expressed, improving oil flow and tear quality.
