During your eye exam, you experience several tests designed to help us assess your eye health and vision. We make it a priority to stay up to date on the latest diagnostic tools and treatments to provide our patients with the best possible eye care.

Technology That Meets Your Needs

The optometry profession is consistently evolving, helping doctors better assess and treat patients. With new techniques and practices developing every day, we need to be aware of the latest developments.

To better serve you and your family, we have invested in effective technologies to assist us during comprehensive eye exams. We can get a complete picture of your eye health using our various tests.

Our Technology

At Maple Ridge Eye Care, we utilize effective modern technology to help us identify and treat different eye diseases. Your optometrist will choose specific tests to assess your eye health. These tests can help protect your eye health and preserve your vision.

Visual field testing is used to determine how wide of an area you can see, helping us identify blind spots in your vision. These blind spots can determine whether or not you’re experiencing eye conditions. We use Humphrey Matrix technology from Zeiss to complete visual field testing.

We use digital retinal imaging during every adult eye exam we perform. This technology helps us identify diseases and provides a reference point when completing future exams. Retinal imaging provides us with detailed scans that we can easily examine for potential issues.

Corneal mapping, or corneal topography, helps us map the cornea, the clear tissue covering the front of your eye. This technology helps create a 3D image of your cornea, helping identify injuries and diseases, and assisting in contact lens fittings. We use products from Topcon and TOMEY when utilizing corneal mapping.

Children with myopia are at risk of worsened vision with age. Myopic progression can cause a reliance on heavy prescriptions and an increased risk of eye diseases. Monitoring the growth rate of the eyes is vital for determining the risk of rapid myopia progression.

With technology like the Topcon MYAH, we can measure your child’s axial length with speed and precision.

Glaucoma can lead to severe vision loss with almost no visible symptoms in its earliest stages. Many forms of this disease can increase your intraocular pressure (IOP). We perform IOP measurements using the iCare tonometer or a non-contact tonometer during every eye exam to catch signs of glaucoma early.

A slit lamp examination includes using a bright light and microscope to look at your cornea, iris, retina, and optic nerve in detail. After dilating your eyes, we focus a thin beam of light on your eye.

This light allows us to see the internal structures of your eye, helping identify any problems before your vision is affected. With products from Reichert Instruments, we can help protect your eye health.

Dry eyes are becoming more common as Canadians spend more time on their computers and other digital devices. Examining the meibomian glands is vital for determining the cause of your dry eyes. With technology from Topcon, we can use meibography to complete an infrared scan of your meibomian glands.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology, such as the iVue, allows our team to scan and capture cross-sectional images of your retina. Using high-frequency light rays helps scan the retina, creating detailed images of its different layers. These images can help us identify and monitor the progress of different conditions.

We Have the Technology to Help

If you’re looking for a comprehensive eye exam, we have the technology to help. We can use several tests during your exam, depending on your needs. Book an appointment and see how our technology can help us better care for your eye health.
