BELOW ARE A LIST OF OUR SERVICES & PROCEDURES
In addition to standard and comprehensive eye exams, we also offer a number of specific procedures to help identify conditions and maximize your visual health.
GLAUCOMA EYE PRESSURE TESTS
Increased eye pressure can be an indication of glaucoma, and being tested for this can help you catch the condition early and take action right away. While high eye pressure alone does not cause glaucoma, increased levels can indicate that you may develop the condition later in life. Damage and vision loss caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed, so having your eyes examined regularly is crucial to maintaining your visual health.
These specialized cameras allow us to take a photograph of different layers of your eye, and using different filters allows for a range of different eye tests. These images can help us detect or track the progression of a range of eye conditions, including vision loss caused by diabetes, glaucoma or macular degeneration.
TESTING FOR CATARACTS AND MACULAR DEGENERATION
Cataracts is a condition where the lens of your eye becomes progressively opaque, causing blurred vision. They are most commonly caused by aging, but can also occur due to trauma, radiation exposure or a birth defect. Cataracts can be surgically removed, but there are still steps you can take to slow their progression in the meantime.
Macular degeneration, like cataracts, can result in blurred or lost vision, but this condition specifically targets the centre of the visual field. Macular degeneration can be diagnosed through a complete eye exam, and catching it early is crucial as there is currently no known treatment to restore vision already lost to this condition.
LOW VISION EXAMS
Low vision examinations are performed to determine whether special low vision optical devices, better lighting or other types of training can help the patient with low vision use their functional vision more effectively. Your optometrist can inform you on a number of different things related to your condition, including whether or not you will lose more sight in the future, if regular glasses can help and if you are entitled to special services or benefits. Our clinic is equipped with specialized equipment, including Eschenbach and Ocutech telescopes, as well as magnifiers and high-quality video magnifiers.
VISUAL FIELD TESTING
A visual field test is a type of eye examination that can detect issues with a person’s central and peripheral vision. This can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, including glaucoma, stroke, brain tumours or other neurological defects. Our clinic is equipped with specialized equipment to provide clients with a comprehensive visual field test.
SLIT LAMP WITH DIGITAL CAMERA
This includes the use of a slit lamp with a digital camera for examination of the anterior (front) of the eye (eyelids, cornea, conjunctiva, iris, crystalline lens, or cataract) and the posterior of the eye (retina).
Corneal pachymetry is the process of measuring the thickness of the cornea using a piece of specialized equipment known as a pachymeter. These procedures are important to patients who may require surgery on their corneas as it provides the surgeon with more detailed information prior to the surgery. The test results can also be used to identify glaucoma in its early stages.
TESTING FOR OTHER EYE DISEASES
Our comprehensive eye exams can also detect a number of other eye-related diseases, including:
Strabismus (crossed eye)
Amblyopia (lazy eye)
Corneal and lid diseases (i.e.: pink eye)
CONTACT LENS FITTING
We also offer comprehensive contact lens fitting services. This is crucial to ensuring that you receive not only the best corrective vision from your contacts, but also to help ensure optimal ocular health.
