Corneal topography testing available at Broadview Eyecare.
Automated Visual Field Analyzer tests are conducted to determine any defects in a patient’s peripheral vision. Test results can lead to a diagnosis of glaucoma or other neurological problems. Many eye and brain disorders can cause peripheral vision loss and visual field abnormalities.
A visual field test is required for those who need to complete the MTO (Ministry of Transportation) form. The applicant must have the following vision standards according to MTO.
Vision standards apply to all drivers. Applicants for and holders of Class A, B, C, D, E and F licences must have:
A visual acuity that is not poorer than:

Pachymetry is a simple, painless test that uses ultrasound or probe to measure the thickness of your cornea. You’ll get this test to create a baseline for comparison with future readings and is needed for any corneal or laser vision corrective surgery. A probe called a pachymeter is gently placed on the front of the eye (the cornea) to measure your cornea’s thickness. The procedure takes only about a minute to measure both eyes. Ask your Optometrist to learn why corneal thickness measurements are needed for your eye health care.
OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomography. It is a very specialized piece of equipment that allows the Optometrist to see within the layers of the retina and other structures of the eye. It is similar to an MRI but the eye structures are seen instantly and without any harmful radiation to the eye. The OCT has been invaluable in the detection and diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular disorders.
Optical coherence tomography testing available at Broadview Eyecare location.
Anterior segment photography also termed as “external photography” uses conventional macro photography equipment to document the external appearance of the eyes surrounding lid and facial structures. These specialty imaging is commonly used to document lesions of the eye or surrounding tissues, demonstrate facial nerve anomalies, and record pre and post surgical alignment of the eyes or eyelids.
Our technology can also take pictures of the anterior segment or anterior cavity, which is the front third of eye that includes the structures of the vitreous humour: the cornea, iris, ciliary body and lens. Our Optometrist will recommend anterior segment photography based on your eye health needs. Ask us to learn more.
