Our Equipment

There is more to vision than simply 20/20. At Cordova Bay Optometry, we offer a comprehensive eye exam using the latest technology available, so you can enjoy healthy eyes and vision for as long as possible. 

Wondering what equipment may be involved in your eye exam?  Take a look below. If you have any questions about the equipment we use, please do not hesitate to ask!



Digital Retinal Imaging

Digital retinal imaging, also known as a retinal photograph, is a non-invasive, diagnostic tool that produces digital high resolution, colored images of your retina, optic nerve, and blood vessels in the back of your eye.


Optical Coherence Tomography 

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. These measurements help with diagnosis and also provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and diseases of the retina.

Frequency Doubling Test

The Frequency Doubling Technology (FDT) perimeter is a portable  instrument designed for fast and effective screening of visual field loss.


Visual Fields Testing

The visual field, or perimetry test, provides analysis of central and ‘side’ vision. Visual field testing helps in the early detection and management of neurological and optic nerve diseases, such as glaucoma.

Tonometry is a diagnostic test that measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure (IOP). 



Pachymetry is a simple, painless test that quickly measures the thickness of the cornea.

Stereopsis is the perception of depth and three-dimensional structure through binocular vision, the combined visual information from two eyes. This is measured in office with the Randot Stereo Test.


Colour Testing 

The Ishihara test is a color perception test for  color deficiencies, the first in a class of successful color vision tests called pseudo-isochromatic plates. 

The Farnsworth D-15 help to diagnose the type and the quantity of the colour vision deficiency.




A phoropter is an instrument comprised of cylinders, prisms, and lenses that measures the eye's refractive error to help determine an eye prescription.



An autolensometer measures the prescription of eyeglass lenses. It determines sphere, cylinder, axis, prism and distance between each optical center (pupillary distance).

Slit  Lamp

A slit lamp is a microscope with a bright light used during an eye exam. It gives your optometrist a closer look at the different structures at the front of the eye and inside the eye. It’s a key tool in determining the health of your eyes and detecting eye disease.


Binocular Indirect Opthalmoscope

Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy (BIO) is an instrument that provides a widefield, dynamic, and stereoscopic view of the retina. 



Digital Eyewear Measurements

Our digital eyewear measurement device provides ten precise measurements that take into account how a frame will be worn by our patients once their eyewear is dispensed, optimizing their visual performance.
