Ocular Health - Clearview Eyecare examinations in Hamilton, Ontario


Regular check-ups including ocular health examinations are just as important, if not more, than the prescription portion of the eye examination. Conditions involving the front, inside, and back of the eye can also affect your vision; and in certain instances, can be irreversible.


Some conditions involving the front of your eye, like keratoconus, can affect your cornea, causing visual symptoms that may require more treatments than simply updating your glasses.


Conditions on the anterior portion of the eye, like cataracts, will frequently require surgical intervention when causing visual impairment. Conditions affecting the retina, like those mentioned below, can also affect the vision. These conditions require close monitoring, and sometimes advanced treatments.


OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) is an integral tool in the management of your visual health and often leads to earlier diagnosis of ocular diseases. OCT scans are similar to an ultrasound and captures a 3D image of the layers and tissues that make up the retina. This is essential when managing eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.


Digital Retinal Photography takes a digital photo of the surface of the retina. Although not as detailed as an OCT, retinal imaging still provides the doctor with high-quality images of the retina that can be compared to previous images to determine if there have been any health changes to the retina.
