Comprehensive Eye Exams
As a routine eye examination, a complete vision and ocular health assessment will be performed. Routine testing for macular degeneration, cataracts, galucoma, retinal disorders and general health problems (hypertension, diabetes, etc.,) are done at annual visits.
Dilated Fundas Exams
This test can be part of the routine eye exam. It uses dilating eye-drops to enlarge the pupillary opening to obtain a superior view of the back of the eye (retina). The effects of the eye drops are light sensitivity and some blurred vision that can last for 2-3 hours. We recommend patients wear sunglasses on the way home, however even with dark sunglasses driving on a sunny day may be very difficult. Having a driver with you is the safest strategy.
Automated Visual Fields
This is a computerized test to measure central and peripheral visual fields. It is usually performed for detection of glaucoma, optic nerve disorders and neurological conditions. The testing of visual fields can also be done to determine if standards are met for driving licences.
Optomap Retinal Exam
The Optomap Retinal Exam is a screening tool that can assess up to 80% of the central and peripheral retina. It can be done with out the use of dilation drops. We recommend everyone have it at their annual eye examination.
Laser Vision Surgery Consultation
Refractive surgery eligibility can be established during the comprehensive eye exam.The risks and benefits of the latest technology will be communicated so the patient can make an informed decision. Pre and post laser surgery management care can be done at our office whereas the surgery is done at the laser vision center of your choice.
Our office is equipped to fit, train, and dispense a full range of contact lenses: Disposable (daily, biweekly, monthly), toric, multifocal, colour, rigid gas permeable (RGPs)……
This test uses ultrasound to accurately measure the thickness of the cornea. It allows a more precise reading of the intraocular pressure (IOP) when testing for glaucoma and aids in assessing the suitability for laser correction.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
This is a highly detailing imaging technique to capture cross-sectional views of the retina. It is useful for macular diseases such as macular holes and macular degeneration, as well as for optic neuropathies such as glaucoma.
