Technology We Use
Fundus photography captures high quality coloured images of your eye’s fundus, including your central retina, optic disc, and macula, making it possible to spot problems like diabetic retinopathy or age-related macular degeneration.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a very sensitive imaging test used in advanced eye care practices. An OCT is similar to an ultrasound, but instead of sound, it uses light waves to take cross-sectional, structural images of your retina.
OCT angiography (OCTA) is a high definition imaging tool that captures pictures of your retina’s vascular system, including your superficial plexus, deep plexus, choriocapillaris, and outer retina zone.
Visual field testing is a technique used to determine if you have any blind spots in your central or peripheral vision. It allows us to determine if you are experiencing vision loss due to diabetic retinopathy, open-angle glaucoma, neurological issues, and more.
Goldmann applanation tonometry is a common eye care tool used to measure your intraocular pressure and detect signs of glaucoma. By gently touching the surface of your cornea, a tonometer can measure your intraocular pressure based on the amount of resistance from the eye.
