Dr. Banh is one of the few optometrists in Ontario

Dr. Banh is one of the few optometrists in Ontario to use EYECAP and 3D OCT, digital imaging systems that take pictures of the eye and transfers the image onto a computer screen. Now his patients can see conditions such as cataracts, mascular degeneration and glaucoma. With state of the art technologies, Dr. Banh can take a photo of the area of interest and monitor any changes over time. His patients can even take a picture home.

Our computer assisted digital retinal camera, and slit lamp imaging enable us to provide a more thorough record of the health of your eyes.

Digital Imaging can assist us in early detection of ocular problems including central retinal diseases, central detachments, holes, thinning, optic nerve disease (glaucoma), pre-cancerous lesions, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy, and diabetic retinopathy.

This type of testing also allows us to store these images to compare with the results of future tests so that a complete ocular health history can be generated. This will allow us to see minute changes that we may not have been able to identify without these tests.

We strongly recommend that ALL of our patients receive this test. It is especially important for those patients who have a personal or family history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal problems, headaches, floaters, flashing light streaks, a strong prescription for glasses, diminishing vision, macular degeneration, cataracts and are taking certain medications.
