We regularly evaluate and invest in new, up-to-date equipment that helps us to better care for your eyes. During your eye exam you will likely experience technology you’ve never seen before -there have been amazing advances designed to help us detect eye disease sooner, prescribe glasses or contact lenses more accurately, and make your visit more efficient.
The Zeiss i.Profiler Plus is an instrument that tests your exact optical “fingerprint”. Every eye is unique and there may be subtle irregularities that, if ignored, limit your best vision potential. Mountain View Optometry was the first practice in the province to beta-test the i.Profiler and we are excited to offer this brand new technology first to our patients. Learn more by clicking here.
We incorporate the latest Optomap California scanning laser in every comprehensive eye exam. This device takes a high-resolution, wide-field scan of your retina which helps our eye doctors diagnose diseases like tumours, holes and tears of the retina, diabetic eye disease and more.
The Zeiss Visucam takes a high-resolution image of the optic nerve and macula ‘ key structures inside your eye that need to be monitored for signs of disease. This allows the doctor to assess whether you have a risk for eye disease and creates a baseline which future images are easured against. The software helps the doctor pick up subtle changes from one exam to the next that may place you at risk for vision problems in the future.
This computerized instrument takes a precise measure of the sensitivity of your peripheral vision, and compares it to the expected values. Problems in this area can be an indication of glaucoma, retinal or optic nerve disease, or even brain tumours. The software is able to track the reliability of each test, and automatically alter the type of testing based on your responses during testing.
This advanced technology is the latest equipment that helps your eye doctor actually see below the surface! Laser light is reflected among the fine inner layers of the retina to produce an extremely detailed and magnified view of the layers of the retina – a structure only 1/5 the width of a human hair. The earliest and most subtle changes are visible with this test. Our eye doctors most commonly use it to test for glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease among many other pathologies.
Glasses fit differently on your face than they would on someone else’s. This can affect the vision through your new lasses and the accuracy of your prescription. We use Digital Measuring Technology by Zeiss to make sure your glasses fit and perform optimally.
