By combining our years of experience in optometry with the most up-to-date technology, our patients receive the best relief from their particular eye condition.

HOW WE DIAGNOSE EYE CONDITIONS

Our office’s advanced technology can detect even the earliest diagnoses of various eye conditions. We’ll gather measurements and imagery to understand the health of your eyes during a comprehensive eye exam.

Sometimes, you may not be experiencing any discomfort or vision problems, but we can detect any potential risks for eye conditions with our technology. The earlier we can diagnose an eye condition, the better!

Advanced Retinal Imaging

Through advanced retinal imaging, we use a high-resolution camera to capture an image of your retina. We can get an almost perfect picture of the back of your eye, including the retina, optic disk, and blood vessels.

As you age, we can compare images from your previous visit to your most recent one. This allows us to closely detect subtle changes and help prevent serious disease progression.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the latest type of technology on the market used to detect the presence of any eye diseases. Usually, it’s only available in hospital eye clinics and some ophthalmology clinics, but our clinic now offers OCT testing on-site. Immediately receiving results allows us to treat any eye condition as quickly as possible.

A scanning laser analyzes your eye during this test to provide colour-coded, cross-sectional images. This non-invasive, painless test provides detailed images essential for the early diagnoses of certain eye conditions.

COMMON EYE CONDITIONS

Astigmatism

Blurred distance and near vision can occur when the eye is not completely round. Known as astigmatism, this common eye condition can typically be easily fixed with eyeglasses or contact lenses. In some situations, surgery is necessary.

Presbyopia

As we age, the lens of our eye changes, making it more challenging to focus on close objects. This eye condition – called Presbyopia – usually starts affecting patients after age 40. Like astigmatism, Presbyopia can be treated with corrective eyewear, contact lenses, or surgery.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Depending on your particular diagnosis of dry eye syndrome, we’ll develop a treatment plan that will help lessen your symptoms. Although dry eye syndrome cannot go away entirely, we have many suggestions to improve your eye comfort and help you enjoy life more.

TREATING EYE CONDITIONS AT STONEY CREEK OPTOMETRY

Early detection is key to treating many different eye conditions. In some situations, we’re even able to reverse the development of the eye condition so that no extensive treatment is necessary.

To stop a condition before it worsens, schedule a regular eye exam every one to two years. In-between appointments, contact us if you ever notice any vision abnormalities.
