Technologies

  • High Defenition OCT

    Optical Coherence Tomography technology has been cited as the most significant advancement in eyecare during the last decade. This technology enables doctors to better detect and manage patients with ocular diseases by showing tissue structure at a microscopic level. OCT utilized in ocular examinations can effectively catch subtle and early cases of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, epiretinal membranes, and macular holes.

    UTEC utilizes an OCT containing the largest and most comprehensive normative database in the world and is FDA approved. It uses long wavelength light to process detailed images of the external and internal structures of the eye and can generate a live 3-D image of the ocular tissues in real time. It is similar to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light thus making the assessment quick and safe, and allows our patients to have the utmost detailed and thorough examinations.

    We are thrilled to offer this cutting-edge technology at our office. Our doctors and staff will be more than happy to explain the needs and benefits to you. Book an appointment to experience the latest in eyecare technology available!

  • FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHY

    How Does Fundus Photography Work?

    Fundus photography utilizes safe visible light from a camera flash to obtain images of the back of the eye. It is used to inspect conditions associated to diseases that affect the eye and monitor the progression of ocular diseases. It is an effective tool to evaluate for eye diseases such as macular degeneration, retinal and choroidal pathologies, diabetic retinopathy, and optic nerve diseases.

    Advantages:

    • Observes a large retinal field at any one time.
    • Dilation not always required
    • Non-invasive
    • High patient compliance
    • Images can be saved and compared for serial analysis over time, allowing for better management plans
    • Different filters and options are available to allow for different types of imaging.
  • Fundus Camera

  • Automated Phoropter
  • Humphrey Automated Visual Field

    A visual field test measures an individual’s entire scope of vision including central and peripheral (side) vision. Conditions and diseases that may affect the visual field of the eye include:

    • Glaucoma
    • Macular Degeneration
    • Diabetes
    • Hypertension
    • Multiple Sclerosis
    • Thyroid Disease
    • Pituitary Gland Disorders
    • Stroke
    • Lid Droop (Ptosis)
    • Medications (e.g. Plaquenil)
    • Brain Tumours
    • Optic Nerve Diseases
    • Headaches

    Our Humphrey visual field instrument utilizes the most up-to-date software and hardware to detect for ocular related diseases. It is also approved and accepted by the Ministry of Transportation for legal driving requirements in Ontario.

  • Zeiss Humphrey Visual Field
  • Anterior Segment Imaging

    Anterior Segment Imaging (ASI) enables photographic images and videos to be taken of the ocular adnexa including the orbit, eyebrows, eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea, and iris.

    This is useful in monitoring conditions that may affect the anterior segment structures of the eyes. It is also clinically useful in monitoring and tracking healing when dealing with injuries or trauma to the front of the eye. It can also be used as an educational tool for patients in addressing common conditions such as dry eye and ocular surface disease.

    We are excited to utilize this technology to provide the best in patient care services.

  • MIBO Thermoflow

    How Does Mibo Thermoflo Work?

    The MiBo Thermoflo is a therapeutic medical device providing a safe and effective alternative therapy for dry eyes, specifically Meibomian gland dysfunction. It uses a proprietary thermoelectric heat pump to help maximize liquefaction of meibum, thus improving preservation and function of the evaporative component of the tear film. It may also be used on styes that have not resolved by traditional warm compresses alone.

    Thermo Electric Heating

    The Mibo Thermoflo supplies continuous controlled heat to the outer skin of the eyelids along with ultrasound gel for a gentle therpeutic massage. The heat is absorbed deep into the tissue and breaks down the hardened lipids in the Meibomian glands. With a customized and prescribed therapy regimen, the ducts of the Meibomian glands will secrete thinner and clearer lipids which will allow for a healthier tear film.

    Benefits:

    • Therapeutic
    • Lasting Benefits
    • Relaxing
    • Immediate Relief
    • Repeatable
