Technology That Takes an Up-Close Look

When we’re examining your eyes at Stoney Creek Optometry, diagnostic equipment and technology are vital parts of understanding your eye health during a comprehensive eye exam. Imaging and measuring technology allows us to detect eye diseases or conditions and take an up-close look at significant parts of the eye, such as the retina or cornea. 

Request an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam, and our team will guide you through our diagnostic devices.

What to Expect During Diagnostic Testing

When we use diagnostic equipment in our practice, many tests require you to sit facing the machinery with your chin and forehead on a headrest. The imaging process only takes a couple of minutes and is noninvasive.

Our Diagnostic Technology

At Stoney Creek Optometry, we use advanced diagnostic devices to understand your eye health and take a closer look at the eye.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced digital imaging technology that is the gold standard for examining and detecting diseases of the retina and optic nerve. OCT imaging takes cross-sectional photos of the individual retinal layers and a detailed assessment of the optic nerve. This technology allows us to catch diseases such as MACULAR DEGENERATION, GLAUCOMA, and DIABETIC RETINOPATHY in their earliest stages, allowing early intervention to prevent vision loss. OCT imaging is a non-invasive test that takes only a few minutes.

Optical Coherence Tomography is just one specific form of retinal imaging, but there is a wide variety of other imaging techniques, such as fundus photography and angiogram. As with OCT, retinal imaging is used to view the retina in more detail, examine your eye health, and identify any eye diseases or conditions that may not be detected otherwise.

Keratometry is the process of measuring the curvature of the cornea’s surface. Automated keratometry uses light ray reflection and photodetectors to take an image and measure the cornea curve with more precise accuracy.

Automated Keratometry technology is important for assessing the condition of the cornea’s surface, as a damaged corneal surface can lead to vision problems. An automated keratometry test can detect conditions such as astigmatism, where the cornea has an irregular shape that causes blurry vision, and keratoconus, where the cornea appears cone or dome-shaped causing vision issues.

A Pachymeter is a device that measures the thickness of the cornea to determine if the cornea is swollen and contains excess fluid, which could point to vision problems. A pachymeter is also helpful in determining corneal thickness and health before laser eye surgery to determine candidacy.

Tonometry technology is used to measure the eye’s pressure, also known as the intraocular pressure (IOP). Automated puff tonometry, or non-contact tonometry, measures this using small puffs of air that travel to the cornea.  

Measuring the IOP of the eye can help determine if glaucoma might be present, and automated puff tonometry is an important diagnostic tool for glaucoma.
