Many eye issues and diseases cause gradual vision loss without any noticeable symptoms, meaning your eyes could suffer serious damage and you might not even realize it until it’s too late. In most cases, this damage can be prevented with early intervention.
Our highly advanced diagnostic technology allows us to perform thorough eye health screenings; giving us the opportunity to spot any potential indications of disease earlier, and possibly preserving your vision.
Here is just some of the incredible technology we use to safeguard your vision.
The retina is a very light-sensitive system tissues lining the back of the eye. Retinal health is a crucial part of your vision; issues with the retina could result in sight loss.
Retinal photographs are detailed images of your retina which create a visual record of your current eye health. By comparing your retinal photos from year to year, we can monitor any changes your retina goes through over time. We recommend having retinal photographs taken annually, although they may be required more often for patients diagnosed with diabetes, macular degeneration, or other eye diseases.
The OCT uses light waves to take cross-section images of your retina, showing each layer of tissue. This level of detail allows your optometrist to map and measure the layers’ thickness, which can help with early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of retinal diseases. Your optometrist will let you know how often you should undergo OCT imaging to monitor your eye health.
Pachymetry uses a digital ultrasound instrument to measure your corneal thickness. This kind of testing gives us the important information we need for glaucoma diagnosis as well as determining your candidacy for laser eye surgery.
Your visual field measures the scope and sensitivity of your peripheral vision. We typically use visual field assessments to diagnose glaucoma, but we may also use it after a stroke, for optic nerve disease, or any other condition that affects the pathways between the eyes and the brain.
Our practice is conveniently located across the street from the Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital.
