POSTERIOR SEGMENT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR DOCUMENTATION AND MONITORING.
Our advanced retinal camera allows us to view and photograph the structures of your eye with unprecedented detail and clarity. We can detect subtle changes over time that can alert us to many conditions.
With the images we can see various infections, plaques developing (inside and outside the eye), as well as high blood pressure and diabetic changes in the retina. We can also see the beginning of macular and glaucoma changes when there is still time to do something about them.

CORNEAL AUTOKERATO TOPOGRAPHER FOR ADVANCED CONTACT LENS FITTING.
The automated refractor lets us objectively measure the ability of your eyes to focus light correctly on your retinas.
While you watch a picture move in and out of focus, a computer records the way the image appears on your retinas. By evaluating this image, we obtain a map of the curves of your cornea and use this information to determine a starting point for the prescription of your glasses or contact lenses.
The refractor helps us determine if your eye lids are impacting your sight and precisely measures the distance between your eyes which is paramount in designing your glasses.
By recording and comparing these images over time, we can monitor corneal changes and the progression of various optical diseases.
INFANT EYE EXAMINATION
Our infant vision tester makes it possible for us to test and evaluate the sight of very young children. We use the principle of “preferential looking,” or “silent speech,” for testing your baby. The test reveals what an infant can or cannot see.
It is advisable to have all infants checked at 6 months of age by an eye care provider, we specialize in that service.
Scoring is based on observation of the child’s visual response to stimulus targets; and visual acuity or “sharpness” is expressed in standard Snellen measurement as used with older children and adults. i.e. 20/20, 20/40, etc.
We are able to evaluate all the functions that we can with an adult. We can determine eye development and eye health (check for glaucoma, cataracts, congenital or acquired diseases); make sure the muscles and nerves are all present and functioning; that the eyes are working together as a team, that there is no amblyopia (lazy eye) or strabismus (eye turning). We can check for farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism; and we can evaluate and follow the development of the eyes and their acuity. We do all of these tests by objective procedures, which do not require patient resources.
The CV 5000 Phoropter
The CV 5000 Phoropter is a very precise Ophthalmic Testing piece of equipment that lets us test over 13,000,000,000,000,000 (quadrillion) combinations of lenses in front of your very eyes. It employs wave front technology for investigating refractive errors and visual dysfunction disorders.
We’ll try out various combinations of lens attributes while you look through the instrument at an eye chart across the room. This lets us find the best possible correction for your eyes by effectively letting you try on all the options we think will work best.
ANTERIOR SEGMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
Our advanced DC3 camera is used for acquiring digital images of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye. This instrument is used in combination with a slit lamp and used to take digital pictures and records of the observed images. It is very handy in demonstrating and documenting various eye diseases.
VISUAL FIELD TESTING
We perform visual field testing for diagnosis and screening of conditions such as glaucoma, Optic nerve disease and neurological defects related to headaches, compressive tumours, aneurysms, visual pathway disorders and retinal abnormalities.
