We use the latest technology to perform the most accurate and thorough comprehensive eye examination.
We initially do a thorough investigation to determine the most accurate prescription to correct any visual problems correctable by glasses or contact lenses. We then do a thorough assessment of the health of the eye to detect if any diseases are present or developing. Early detection of eye diseases is critical in maintaining good eye health and preventing visual loss. All of our doctors are trained and certified in ocular therapeutics. If surgical treatment is required we will promptly refer patients requiring such. We also co-manage patients seeking Lasik surgery.
We offer advanced retinal imaging which takes digital pictures of the back of the eye to determine your current eye condition.
The doctors at Stoney Creek Optometry are able to capture, examine and review these images with you during your eye exam. Retinal images are captured in less than a second and nothing will touch your eyes. Retinal photos are critical as they detect, measure and alert our optometrists of any potential health risks, including early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy, hypertension, macular degeneration and glaucoma.
We will give you a thorough assessment during your eye exam to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Lasik surgery.
We will then discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of Lasik surgery. Should you decide to proceed we work with the top Lasik clinics in Hamilton and Toronto and will co-manage your surgery with the chosen clinic.
Our clinic now has in-house OCT testing.
This technology is vastly superior to photography retinal imaging and until recently was only available in hospital eye clinics and some ophthalmology clinics. This allows our clinic to do these advanced diagnostic tests immediately during the eye exam rather than waiting weeks or months to refer patients out for these tests and results.
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology.
Like ultrasounds, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.
A scanning laser is used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to a CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.
With an OCT scan doctors are provided with colour-coded, cross-sectional imaging of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
An OCT scan is a non-invasive, painless test. It is performed in 5 minutes right in our clinic. Ask us about OCT at your next visit.
