Digital Retinal Photography

eye-deology Vision Care differentiates itself from other clinics by having the most advanced modern diagnostic specialty testing equipment. Specialty equipment, such as a wide-angle high-resolution retinal imager, Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT), Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer and corneal topographer, ensures that patients receive the best comprehensive eye care. In some cases, specialty diagnostic equipment supports both screening and detailed tests. Screening tests occur before seeing the optometrist, while detailed assessments happen after an initial examination by the eye doctor. Patients wearing contact lenses or that have known conditions typically have specialty tests included in their regular exam.

Wide-angle retinal imaging is a unique technology that can capture more than 80% of the retina in one panoramic image, while traditional imaging methods typically only allow for 15% of the retina to be viewed at one time. The image enables optometrists to see the entire retina and to identify any concerns to patients. Getting a retinal image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches the eye at any time. To receive a scan, one looks into the device and follows the prompts.

Our Edmonton Eye Exams - Retinal Imaging: a detailed snapshot of the retina

Optical Coherence Tomography uses low-intensity infra-red light to provide a 3D image of the back of the eye. It shows not only the surface but also the depth of the structures. It is similar to using ultrasound and creates an image similar to that of a MRI or CT scan. The scan takes only seconds to acquire an image, and it is totally painless. All you need to do is look at a light, keep your eyes still, and not blink for two seconds.

Our Edmonton Eye Exams - OCT Screening: assessing the structure of the retina

This specialty test is frequently necessary to provide a comprehensive evaluation of a patient's visual field. For example, if a patient has glaucoma or receives poor results during the FDT screening test, they will likely undergo Humphrey Visual Field Analysis. For this test, the patient maintains focus on a central target and presses a button each time they see a light stimulus. It is impossible to see every light stimulus, and some lights may appear brighter/duller and slower/faster than others. The eye not being tested is often covered, and room lights dimmed for the test.

Our Edmonton Eye Exams - Humphrey Visual Field Analysis: evaluating central and peripheral vision

Since the cornea is responsible for approximately 70% of the eye's refractive power, evaluation of its topography, or surface curvature, is essential for determining the quality of vision and ocular health. Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique used for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea. The three-dimensional map generated by the scan is a valuable aid for optometrists that can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of several conditions, plan cataract surgery, plan refractive surgery (i.e., LASIK), and assess the fit of contact lenses.

For Albertans between of the ages of 0-18 (i.e., children) and 65+ (i.e., seniors), Alberta Health Services covers the cost of one comprehensive eye exam per year along with all medically necessary examinations (e.g., infections, foreign body removal, sudden vision changes, etc.). For Albertans between the ages of 19-64 (i.e., Adults), only medically necessary optometric exams are covered by Alberta Health Services. Adult comprehensive eye exams typically range between $90-160, depending on the number and type of tests/digital scans performed, the advanced technologies (e.g., retinal photography and Optical Coherence Tomography) used to assess patient ocular health, examination length, and overall thoroughness. Several additional tests and scans are required for contact lens wearers and for those that have had corrective eye surgery; therefore additional fees apply.

Depending on the clinic, the number and type of tests/scans performed, the advanced technologies used to assess patient eye health, and thoroughness of the optometrist, an eye exam (including all pre-testing) can take between 10-60 minutes to perform.

Given that individuals only have two eyes, that eye diseases do not produce symptoms until their advanced stages, the importance vision is to quality life, livelihood, and lifestyle, and that once vision is lost it cannot be returned, it is recommended that individuals get an optometrist-performed eye exam annually.

Annual eye exams are especially important for children and seniors, and for those individuals with systemic conditions, such as diabetes.
