Our office offers high resolution retinal photography through a digital imaging system. This test lets us take a picture inside your eye which:
The procedure takes approximately 2 minutes and requires the patient to look into a machine at a camera flash for each eye.
Retinal imaging is recommended for all patients as they allow for our doctors to provide a higher level of care.
We are excited to announce that we now offer a technology called Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF). FAF can analyze retinal cells located deeper than an optometrist can see with traditional equipment. Many ocular diseases can be diagnosed or the progression can be tracked by using FAF imaging.
By offering this service, our optometrist can provide an elevated level of care. Based on the eye examination, the optometrist may let the patient know if this test is suitable and recommended for them.
This technology allows us to plot out the field of vision of the patient to determine any visual field defects. An optometrist can interpret a visual field to diagnose and track the progression of a variety of ocular diseases.
Visual field testing is also used to determine if patients meet the visual requirements for driving licenses or visually demanding careers.
Please note that masks continue to be required in healthcare facilities. We will continue to update our policy in line with Ontario Health regulations. Thank you for your understanding!
