Giving Us a Deeper Understanding of Your Eyes
Digital retinal imaging is a procedure where your optometrist will take a high-resolution picture of your retina.
Traditionally, optometrists could only observe the retina but have no image to later refer to. However, new technology has allowed for the digital image to be processed immediately, so that your optometrist can review any issues within minutes.
At Vision Care Centre, we keep comprehensive digital records to monitor your ocular health effectively and detect any issues in the early stages.
What is Digital Retinal Imaging Used For?
Digital retinal imaging is useful for pinpointing signs of disease, degeneration, or damage to the back of your eye. With the high-resolution image, early warning signs of many issues can be detected. Some of these issues include:
- Retinal detachment
- Retinal tearing
- Macular degeneration
- Eye damage from high blood pressure or diabetes
Retinal tissue is sensitive and can be damaged by conditions that may lead to vision impairment and even vision loss. Early stages of eye diseases often do not have readily apparent symptoms, and can only be detected with retinal imaging.
By pinpointing areas of concern, your Vision Care Centre optometrist can help protect your vision and ensure your eyes are healthy.
Pros & Cons of Digital Retinal Imaging
Retinal imaging allows us to see early signs of eye diseases that may not be apparent to the naked eye. The test is noninvasive and generally painless, with results that are easy to interpret. The images can be kept on file so we can monitor treatment progress and overall ocular health.
However, digital retinal imaging should be used in tandem with other technologies. The images produced by digital retinal imaging may not always detect retinal bleeding, and cannot always see the outer edge of the retina.
At Vision Care Center, we are happy to help you with any questions you may have. Your vision is our priority.

We are an essential service and we are open.
I have seen Dr. Sebastian and he is the only one to have diagnosed my dry eye syndrome and I have seen others before him and did not catch this. As a result of my dry eyes my prescription was not reading accurately. I am grateful for his patience and extra care he has given me.
My family and I have always been impressed with the friendly yet extremely professional service we have enjoyed over the years. The doctors are knowledgeable and personable, the frame selection is excellent (as is the contingent of wonderful staff who are always available with honest opinions and helpful advice!) and the receptionists are fabulous and friendly. The newly renovated space is lovely as well. Well done, everyone!
My Vision Care experience was absolutely grand. I greatly value all the wonderful people there who looked after me during my visit. Everyone is extremely friendly and highly professional starting right from the time one enters the beautiful place.
The place itself provides a wonderful experience. I value all the professional advice that is given with the greatest care. For me it is a joy to come in on a regular basis and to know I am in good hands. I greatly value the care and guidance given by Dr. Ramesh.
We want to thank you very much for all your hard work that went into Alicia’s Neuro-Visual Therapy. It has opened Alicia’s ability to do so much more both personally and in school, and what means most to us as her parent, we see how confident Alicia is in herself and in her school work. She was always falling down a lot and she always had her head tilted to one side. Now she is focused to get her tasks done on time and the best part, correctly…

When I started the program, I had trouble focusing and sitting and doing my work. Since I started the 36 week program, this has changed. I focused on getting better grades than I did in grade 2 (now in grade 3). I have got A’s in all subjects this year. Now I can sit and do my work, I am able to focus and I am not always looking around the room at other things. I used to need a ruler to read, now I don’t and I can read better and faster than I used to. I am doing great and have learned a lot through this experience.
I am so thankful for encountering Dr. Ramesh who truly cares about her patients. Back in 2015 when I brought my daughter in for the first time, I was hysterical and scared. I was afraid that her eye will never stop turning in and that she would need surgery to fix the lazy eye.
Dr. Ramesh explained to me like no other doctor ( and I’ve brought my daughter to several specialists) what exactly is happening and what can be done to fix the problem. Anna is only 3 years old, we worked persistently with her to the point where now she is able to have great control of her eye. I cannot believe we went from her eye constantly turning in to barely noticing it now. Thank you so much for caring and all of your encouragement and support. You are not only an amazing doctor, but also and amazing person!
