COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS
Requires dilation to rule out internal eye disease so please expect eye drop instillation. (Click for details)
Our fees are based on the OAO Fee guide as described (click for details)
DRY EYE TREATMENT
MEIBOMIAN GLAND EXPRESSION involves an extensive process of heating, massaging & compressing the upper & lower lids to physically remove the congested/thickened tears.
VISUAL THERAPY & CONCUSSION THERAPY
Vision Training in the form of eye exercises to develop focussing & binocular skills. This includes neuro-stimulation techniques to maximize visual-perceptual & visual-motor skills & ultimately learning efficiency. This traditionally can relieve symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, double vision etc.
Various Frequencies of light have been proven effective as a form of Visual Therapy for ocular conditions, concussions, visual-perceptual frustrations like dyslexia etc.
LOW VISION DEVICES
MOHLT/government funded Low Vision Aids for patients with permanently decreased vision
Includes permanent digital pictures of the eye to enhance diagnosis & monitor of eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetes and glaucoma.
OPTICAL COHERANCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT) Scans
This is very advanced technology that takes several thousand scans of the layers of the retina to identify damage in the deeper tissues not detectable with digital imaging (pictures). It is useful to more accurately diagnose retinal/macular/optic nerve damage, ex macular degeneration, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma etc.
Services include fitting, design, dispensing, care and follow up assessment on disposables and other prescribed soft and rigid gas permeable lenses. (Click for details)
OCULAR EMERGENCY ASSESSMENT
Red or pink eye, eye infections, allergies, chemicals and foreign body in eye, flashes or floaters.
CHILDRENS' EYE EXAMINATIONS
Annual eye exams are recommened from age 3. (Click for details)
DIABETIC EYE DISEASE
We now have available addional Testing of Contrast Sensitivity Function (along with FDT below) that allows better accuracy in diagnosing the level of cataract.
tonometer/IOP, Humphrey's automated visual field analyzer, Pachymetry, and OCT nerve scans are essential tests for glaucoma diagnosis. However all of these tests are not part of standard testing & not all OHIP insured services.
LASER PRK / LASIK Co-Management
Pre and post operative management - In order to maximize your success, please contact us for a referral to a reputable LASIK Centre of your choice.
Measurement of the corneal thickness which is done on all patients @ no additional fee, is useful for (click for details)
FREQUENCY DOUBLING TECHNIQUE (FDT)
This test is usefull for enhancing the diagnoses of various eye diseases such as Glaucoma, ARMD, Cataracts, Optic Nerve Pathology, along with providing critical information on medical conditions such as strokes, anomolies/growths in the brain (common symptom of headaches) etc.
COMPUTER VISION TESTING
This provides a more accurate & efficient Rx for computer use as we focus differently @ pixels on a monitor than we do on print. Please measure the distance from the bridge of your nose to your monitor for best results.
OCULAR VITAMINS & EYE DROPS
Recent research (AREDS study) indicates that ocular supplements such as zinc & various antioxidants potentially reduce the risk of progression of ARMD long term. Other more recent research has indicated that a high concentration of Lutein improves vision in patients with cataracts. In addition, now eye drops are available that can promote cellular regeneration @ the corneal level, ideal for Ocular Surface Diseases such as dry eye.
