Eye Care Technology

Eye Care Technology

We use up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible. Below are the different technologies that we use at Blink Eyewear - Optometry to give you the most comprehensive and thorough eye exam! Many eye diseases can be successfully treated and managed if detected at early stages.

Advantages of digital imaging:

  • Quick, safe, non-invasive, painless.
  • Provides detailed images.
  • Image resolution is very high quality allowing us to detect retinal disease early.
  • Uses eye-safe near-infrared light, no patient prep required. 

Digital Retinal Imaging & OCT Scans

  1. Digital Retinal imaging: Retinal images help us to look at pictures of the back of your eye, and visualize 2 very important parts of your eye; your Optic nerve and your central vision. These retinal images give our doctors the best view of your retina, which are stored electronically to allow us to access them and compare them year to year.
  2. OCT - Ocular Coherence Tomography: OCT scans allow us to see your retina from a different perspective.  It uses light to obtain high-resolution, cross-sectional views of the structural layers of the retina. One type of imaging allows us to visualize the layers of the retina in your central vision, and another type of imaging allows us to detect the thickness of fibres in your optic nerve. This type of imaging can give us early insight into different retinal diseases, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and many more.
  3. Virtual Visual field testing: there are a number of reasons why your doctor will order a visual field test. The purpose of doing a visual field test is to assess in detail your ability to see and perceive lights/objects in your visual field. This type of testing will test each eye by itself and involve you staring at a light source ahead. When the testing starts, random lights will flash in the machine and each time you see a flash you will be required to click a button. This testing is typically done for glaucoma, Plaquenil use, or concerns regarding vision loss.
  1. Bleph-Ex: This unique technology uses a rotating bursh to exfoliate the lid margins to remove debris. It is recommended to patients who have blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids).
  2. Meibography: This allows our doctors to see the health of the glands on your eyelids and allow our doctors to give you the best dry eye treatment recommendations.
  3. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and RF (Radio Frequency): See our REVITAL-EYES section for more information.
