Digital Retinal Imaging

The retina is the inner most lining inside the eye. It is composed of several layers and functions like the film in a camera. Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

CIRRUS HD-OCT Ocular Coherence Tomography

Revealing the complete picture

Detect ocular disease up to 10 years ahead of time

Early detection is the key to prevention at EyedeologyTM. The Cirrus HD-OCT helps our Optometrists to diagnose and monitor retinal and optic nerve problems before any avoidable, permanent damage is done. The high quality and accuracy of the scans provide information on your eyes that is unavailable with any other technology. For our Optometrists, a detailed understanding of your eyes is essential to safeguard your vision for many years to come.

The Cirrus HD-OCT never touches your eye so there is no discomfort. It is safe and requires only a few minutes of your time. Our eye doctors are able to clearly see the internal structures of your eye. Problems can be treated before they progress as year after year we are able to monitor progression and analyse with other technology such as our retinal image and visual field

Retina and Optic Nerve

The OCT uses direct cross sectional imaging to look directly at a “cutaway” view of the layers of the retina and optic nerve to accurately measure their characteristics. Other machines show the surface of these structures but the Cirrus OCT shows us what is below the surface. The Cirrus HD-OCT is essential for monitoring various retinal conditions and glaucoma.

The Canon CR-2 Plus Digital Retinal Imaging provides:

We offer the Canon CR-2 Plus Retinal Imaging as an important part of our eye exams. The Canon CR-2 Plus image is as unique as you fingerprint and provides us with a look at the health of your retina. A high resolution image of the retina including the optic nerve, macula and the health of the blood vessels allow for the confirmation of a healthy eye vs. detection of disease.

A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.

The opportunity for you to view and discuss the image of your eye with our eye doctors at the time of your exam.

Special feature Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) imaging: Helps with Geographic Atrophy, Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy and other conditions that can affect vision may also be identified and monitored using FAF mode. These Metabolic changes at the level of photoreceptor/RPE complex may not be visualized by other routine imaging techniques.
