It is important to have your eyes tested every two years unless otherwise recommended by your Optometrist. Regular eye examinations are important for the detection of focusing problems, eye strain and assessment of diseases such as glaucoma, cataract and macular degeneration.


Certain body diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and multiple sclerosis may also manifest in one's eyes.

We have Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) as well as high resolution digital cameras and binocular microscopes which enables us to take digital photographs, videos and 3D scans of the anterior and  interior of your eyes.


This significant advancement in technology allows for early detection of many eye disease and abnormal ocular conditions.
