What is OCT Scanning?

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a medical imaging technology that captures 3D images from within the biological tissue of our eyes. In ophthalmology, OCT is used to acquire detailed images of the retina by using near-infrared, long wavelength light. It is critical to provide the doctor with a detailed image of the retina’s surface.

Healthy Retina

This picture of retinal layers was taken using laser light.  A healthy retina is crucial for perfect vision. This is how a healthy retina should look like. The circle where the light is focused, the macula, is where the images we receive get sent to the brain!

Meet The Macula

The most important section of the eye where the light is focused and then processed. Using our cutting edge technology, we model your macula in 3 dimensions. This allows the doctor to give the most accurate diagnosis possible!

Unhealthy Retina

An unhealthy retina scan can look like this. Your retina can help us detect glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, and many other conditions early. This can save you a lot of pain both financially, and most importantly, physically.

Early detection can avoid up to 80% of vision impairment. We are able to effectively diagnose and treat said conditions early as a result of our thorough exams and cutting-edge equipment, bringing you the service and care that you truly deserve.

They built two pairs of lenses for me. After several weeks I went back to them to redo because the lenses were just a little to strong. I couldn’t believe that they were willing to work with me after the amount of time had passed. They had patience and persistence on providing me with the service that they advertised. They reexamined me and gave me two new pairs of lens. THATS SERVICE! Thank you to the staff and practitioner for being courteous and professional.

Update. Brought in my glasses today that needed to be adjusted. Owner dropped everything and spent 10 minutes making sure they were perfect, including a professional cleaning. Feeling well taken care of. /Dropped in to see about whether we could save a broken frame. Professional and friendly owner carefully showed me why it was not possible and quickly found a new frame that matched. Had it ready in a couple hours. Highly recommend.

I would recommend Opticanada at the Westshore Mall. The latest equipment will be used to test your eyes and they have a great selection of reasonably priced frames.

I haven’t had an eye exam in over 10 years and I was feeling really nervous but the employees there are so super nice and really helpful and they walk you through everything. Made my whole experience feel like I was hanging out with an old friend of mine. I left very confident and much more knowledgable about my eyes situation than I was before hand!!! Thank you again so much!!
