Our specialty camera allows us to photograph the inside of the eye, including the retina, optic nerve, blood vessels, and macula. Excellent for understanding how your eye works, it also allows us to better see any changes due to diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, macular degeneration, and glaucoma, just to name a few.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive scan of the eye allowing the doctors to view the numerous layers of your retina in cross section. This scan can be exceptionally telling of complications due to diabetes and macular degeneration, allowing for a deeper view of the nerve tissue.
Visual field testing allows for mapping of each eye’s field of view. This is an interactive test and is important in monitoring some disease processes including diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, stroke, and cataracts to name a few.
Low levels of pigment in the macular area of the retina are linked with a higher risk of developing macular degeneration, and its progression. We are proud to offer macular pigment density testing at VVO. Based on the results of this test we are able to predict relative risk of developing macular degeneration and more accurately make recommendations to help reduce your risk.
At Victoria Village Optometry we are excited to offer Vision Therapy to clients of all ages. Vision Therapy allows us to work one-on-one with children and adults whose eyes may not be working together as a team. With in-office sessions combined with at-home activities, Vision Therapy can help reduce headaches and strain, and improve overall achievement in school and everyday activities.
Whether for special occasions, sports, or everyday use, we offer contact lenses and training of soft, hard, clear, coloured, and specialty lenses. Being a foreign object on the eye, it is important that contacts are assessed on the eye for proper fit and comfort to minimize infections, discomfort, and to assess for oxygenation of the cornea.

UV protection is important all year round! UV rays have direct access to our eyes, but also reflect into the eye off of snow and water, making it important to wear our sunglasses in the winter, summer, and even on overcast days throughout the year. At VVO we have a wide selection of fashion and prescription sunglasses, both polarized and non-polarized. Come in and speak with our frame specialists today to determine the best option to protect your eyes!
