Advanced Technology in eyecare
Modern technology in today's age has revolutionized EVERYTHING - and that includes your eye care! We understand the importance of your eyes and vision which is why we always strive to utilize the latest technology to facilitate your eye examinations.
At Centenary Optical, our eye doctor has in-house access to a number of advanced diagnostic tools to facilitate your eye care. This allows us to provide the most comprehensive vision care and ensure nothing is missed.
Retinal photography involves taking a picture of the inside of your eye to aid the doctor in the diagnosis and management of eye disease. Retinal photography is useful for the early detection of subtle abnormalities affecting the retina and optic nerve. It can play a key role in the management of diseases like diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and glaucoma, to name a few.
Most eye diseases do not have any symptoms in the early stages - many of which can be easily treated/prevented if detected early enough. OCT imaging captures a high resolution scan of the layers of the retina and other structures inside the eye. The eye doctor then analyzes the results and uses them to identify any subtle changes in the tissues. This allows for the detection of eye disease much earlier than it would become apparent in a typical eye exam.
Optical Coherence Topography (OCT)
Visual Fields (Perimetry)
Our in-house visual field analyzer allows for the detection of any visual field loss. Often changes in your visual field can occur without any significant symptoms and can represent underlying disease. If deemed necessary, our eye doctor will order this test to screen for diseases like glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and even brain tumors.
Corneal pachymetry involves measuring the thickness of the cornea - the clear dome like structure of your eye. It is a painless procedure that uses a portable ultrasound device to measure the thickness of the cornea. The results of this test can help the eye doctor to determine your risk of diseases like glaucoma and keratoconus. It can also help assess whether you would be a suitable candidate for refractive surgery such ask LASIK or PRK.
