Digital Retinal Photography

The Clarity a High Resolution Image of Your Eye Provides is a Game Changer

Digital Retinal Photography Lets Us See So Much

The advanced technology we have in our office to view the back of the eye in such extraordinary detail gives our eye doctors advantages over offices that don’t invest in these new instruments. Because of it we can see the development of many eye diseases when they are in their infancy, enabling us to catch these concerns earlier. As you know, when it comes to eye diseases, early detection and treatment is key.

Results are immediate; digital photography eliminates the wait. We are able to immediately use the information provided by digital retinal photography to infer problems, make assessments, and provide us insights into the state of your eye health.

Immensely effective for the detection of many eye diseases

As you can imagine, the ability to see – in ultra-high resolution – what is happening to the eye facilitates easier and more accurate diagnosis of many eye diseases. These include:

  • Glaucoma
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Retinal tears and detachments
  • Optic strokes
  • And many others

During your next eye exam, our Optometrist will go over the results and indicate what they are seeing and where.

Effective for detecting non-eye diseases, too!

Often, we see the signs of high blood pressure or diabetes before they are even on our patients radar.

What is retinal fundus photography, and how does it work?

Digital retinal photography is also known as digital retinal fundus photography. Fundus photography simply refers to photography of the back of the eye.

Your retina consists of ten somewhat translucent layers. Fundus photography provides a top-down view through these layers to the back of your eye. Using fundus photography, we can detect and then monitor the development of many eye diseases – as mentioned above – in a way that simply would not be possible without it.

NTOC Testimonials

  • Since 2004, Dr. Peacock and Dr. Amarnath of NTOC have very capably managed my eye care needs in conjunction with my Ophthalmologist. As a regular patient at their clinic, I can attest to their competence and to their hightech equipment. The NTOC Optometrists have an excellent working relationship with the two Ophthalmologists who have privileges at Stevenson Memorial Hospital. This is so important to their patients who are determined to require the next level of eye care. Their staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. NTOC is a great place to entrust your eyes.

    J.J. Paul Whiteside, CMA, FCMA, Alliston

  • Dr. Amarnath and Dr. Peacock have been more than accommodating under both our planned and emergency situations. NTOC always provides flexible options and they are always happy to see us. Each visit is a very positive experience. The services and products they provide are comprehensive, but not high-pressured, and they provide service and guarantees that are much higher than industry standards. We totally enjoy and appreciate being their patients and recommend NTOC without reservation.

    Maryann & Gordon Foy, Alliston

  • When I experienced a serious eye condition in 2006, I was very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and quick response by Dr. Amarnath and his team at NTOC. I was referred to an eye specialist the very same day, and my follow-up care was thorough and efficient, even to this day. This team works with absolute professionalism, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.

    Gregg Fullarton, Cookstown

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Peacock since 2002, and find him to be very competent and thorough. Dr.Peacock genuinely listens to any concerns I have about my eyes, and takes the time to enquire with interest about my family. His team is always pleasant, polite and helpful, making me feel very comfortable when I visit the clinic.

    Patricia Murphy, New Tecumseth

  • I was very impressed with my first visit. From the moment I walked in, the staff was more than friendly and she did her best to explain procedures and tests that would be done today. I am a very nervous eye patient and Dr. Peacock did everything to ease my tensions and explain all procedures. When choosing my glasses, I felt very confident in her suggestions and was very pleased with the time taken to ensure the correct choice and fit. All in all, I am thrilled with my choice of optometrist office. And, I look forward to my next visit. Something I have never experienced before. Thank you.
