ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

REFRACTION

Our Nidek RT-3100 Intelligent Refraction Unit revolutionizes the traditional eye examination process. Say goodbye to the tedious “1” or “2” lens clicks. This automated system offers smooth, rapid lens selection, ensuring quicker, less fatiguing, and highly accurate eye exams. Seamlessly integrated with a digital chart, it provides diverse chart options, eliminating the need for memorization, catering to individuals of all ages and literacy levels.

Comparing between your old specs is now possible as the lens movement is smooth and almost instantaneous, so you can appreciate the change in your lens prescription, if any at all.

FUNDUS PHOTOGRAPHY

Explore the Depths of Eye Health

 

Fundus photography enables non-invasive exploration of the posterior segment of the eye. Beyond assessing ocular health, it unveils insights into systemic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), hypertension, and more. Within the limited view through the pupil, we observe the critical macula and the optic nerve, a conduit for visual information to the brain. Fundus photography aids in the early detection of conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, and age-related macular degeneration.

A healthy fundus. The large yellowish dot is the optic nerve head. The dark cherry coloured spot is the macula.

F2

Another healthy fundus pic.

F3

Diabetic Retinopathy. The yellow deposits are called exudates and a hallmark sign.

F4

Notice the pale optic nerve found in glaucoma which is the 2nd leading
cause of blindness.

F5

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)

F6

Age related macular degeneration (ARMD).

CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY

Corneal Topography creates a 3D map of the cornea in order to:

Mapping Corneal Precision

Our Corneal Topography system constructs a detailed 3D map of the cornea. It serves multifaceted roles, from assessing corneal shape to diagnosing conditions like keratoconus. Notably, it plays a pivotal role in the design of custom contact lenses, offering a cost-effective and time-efficient approach by simulating multiple virtual fits before actual lens production. Furthermore, it aids in the identification of corneal abnormalities, ranging from dry eye to ulcers.

C6

A Topography of a corneal injury.

There are many cases where patients have not been able to improve their vision with spectacles, and the Topographer has shown why, detecting surface abnormalities on the cornea from dry eye to ulcers. As a diagnostic tool it also can detect the meibomian gland dysfunction-one of the main causes of a dry eye.

SLIT-LAMP BIOMICROSCOPY

Illuminate the Front of Eye Health

The Slit-Lamp Biomicroscope provides high-resolution magnified views of anterior eye structures. It is instrumental in diagnosing a spectrum of conditions, including dry eyes, foreign body injuries, red eye presentations, and lid anomalies. Additionally, it serves as an indispensable tool in assessing the fitting of contact lenses, ensuring optimal comfort and vision.

OCT

Vision Precision Beyond Compare

Our Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) system functions akin to a medical CAT scan, delivering profiled and magnified images. In ophthalmology, OCTs are indispensable for early detection of sight-threatening diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Moreover, it is instrumental in refining the fit of our custom-designed scleral lenses, providing an intricate, close-up view of the lens-eye interaction.

An OCT image of a Scleral Contact Lens on an eye which has had a corneal graft.  Note how the lens closely follows the contours of the eye.

Oct2

An OCT image of a Corneal Graft, showing the junction between the donor & host corneas.

Note the Scleral Lens lying on top, with the tear layer forming a gap between the lens and the eye.

Oct3

An OCT image of a Corneal Graft, showing the junction between the donor & host corneas.

Note the Scleral Lens lying on top, with the tear layer forming a gap between the lens and the eye.

Oct4

Another OCT of a graft, this time the tear layer between the lens and eye is greater, and caused by the thinning of the host cornea in that area.

Oct5

An OCT image of the retina (back part of the eye), with the green arrow pointing to what Macular Degeneration looks like.  Also called Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), it is one of the leading causes of central vision loss in the world with family history and smoking increasing its incidence. 

Oct6

An OCT image showing the cornea, sclera (the white part of the eye), and iris (the eye’s colour), all in one image.  There is also a Scleral contact lens in place.

Oct7

This OCT image is to detect risk factors leading up to Glaucoma.  As mentioned previously. Glaucoma is the 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world, with an incidence of between 1-4 in every 100 people.  This test can detect risk factors long before any existing technology.  The above case is safe BTW.
