Our Eye Technology
We Can See Issues Long Before You Notice Them
At University Vision Centre, our experienced doctors use the latest technology in all our diagnostics and services to deliver only the most precise readings — and tailored treatments. This cutting-edge equipment allows us to uncover potential issues well before they impact your sight or quality of life.
Conditions We Detect with Our Eye Technology
Our incredible diagnostic tech allows our doctors to see a huge range of eye conditions and start treating them as early as possible. From identifying dry eye disease and glaucoma, to providing emergency eye care and surgery co-management, our technology helps us keep you seeing clearly.
You may not realize your irritating symptoms come from dry eye — but when you visit our dedicated dry eye workstation, we’ll assess your eyes to identify the underlying cause of your specific case. Tests explore indicators like tear osmolarity and break-up time, as well as the health of the meibomian glands in your eyes, which play a key role in the production of tears.
The retina is at risk for a variety of diseases, but one of the most common is diabetic retinopathy, a serious complication of diabetes. We use a variety of equipment, including Optos retinal imaging and visual field tests, to identify issues at the earliest point so we can start management to protect your vision.
Dubbed the “silent thief of sight,” glaucoma is a condition that often shows very few warning signs. As such, it requires both a skilled eye and advanced equipment to detect. After we’ve identified signs of glaucoma using a variety of testing methods, including optical coherence tomography (OCT) and visual field testing, we can develop an individualized approach to your case.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common condition that affects the macula, a structure in the center of the retina. AMD affects your central vision, but can be difficult to detect in its early stages. To make sure we see it as early as possible, we utilize a range of equipment, including OCT imaging and slit lamp exams, to start managing it as early as possible.
While cataracts are incredibly common, it’s not always obvious if you have them in their early stages. Topography and color vision tests can help us identify how severe the cataract is and what eyewear can help correct your vision, as well as guide us towards the best options for ultimately removing them with cataract surgery.
