Eye Disease diagnosis and management
LIPIFLOW® Treatment For Dry Eye
LipiFlow® applies localized heat and pressure in adult patients with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), also known as evaporative dry eye or lipid deficient dry eye.
Unlike traditional dry eye treatments (i.e., warm compresses, wetting drops and ointments), LipiFlow® treats the root cause, the obstructed Meibomian glands. The goal of unblocking the glands is to allow them to return to their natural production of lipids required for a healthy tear film. LipiFlow treatments are provided by our licensed professionals for suitable candidates.
With LipiFlow® treatments available at our office, your Optometrist can make the medical recommendation that’s right for you.
Introducing Optomap, the state-of-the-art vision exam that revolutionizes the way we perform retinal evaluations. This technology provides us with a more comprehensive, 200˚ view of your retina.
You’ll benefit from:
- A non-invasive exam
- Reduction of uncomfortable pupil dilation
- Instant, accurate image of the retina
- Digital files—images remain on the computer for future comparisons of even the most minor changes
- Better detection of any medical eye issues (e.g. detached or torn retinas, macular degeneration and tumours)
- Better detection of high blood pressure and compromised circulatory health
In addition to wide field retinal scanning as provided with the Optomap, we also utilize detailed digital retinal/fundus photography for further documentation of retinal, vascular, macular and optic nerve diseases and disorders.
Visual Field Screening
Threshold and screening visual field testing to detect peripheral and central visual field loss due to glaucoma, neurological disease, injury or stroke, or certain drug induced side effects is offered as part of our comprehensive ocular evaluation when indicated.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
The latest technology to detail cellular layers and thickness of the retina arrived at our practice in 2011. We have since obtained updated software versions and the newest Zeiss Cirrus Model in 2019. This advanced technology is utilized in the treatment and management of glaucoma and glaucoma suspect patients, diabetics and those battling macular degeneration and other retinal diseases. Early detection and timely treatment can positively alter the course of these potentially devastating eye diseases.
