Our new digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to generate a picture of the back of your eye, called your retina. They use light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina.
Retinal scans helps the doctor assess the health of your retina as well as assisting in the detection and detecting early disease conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
Finding retinal disorders as early as possible is critical to potentially preventing serious disease progression and even vision loss.
A visual field analyzer is a very sophisticated, computerized instrument that check for loss of sight and
ares of missing or decreased vision. Visual fields testing helps in the diagnosis of glaucoma (which, in later
stages, is characterized by a loss of peripheral and central vision): it helps in determining some retinal and
neurological problems associated with diabetes, tears, holes, detachments, macular degeneration, and
even tumors. It helps us better diagnose causes of headaches that may be ocular related.
The visual field helps us better determine the overall health and functioning of the internal eye and related optic pathway within the brain. It is very helpful to determine if more in depth testing may be necessary in other conditions, such as glaucoma

Dry eyes or Dry Eye Syndrome is a complex condition that can have multiple causes but tends to share common symptoms. Dr. Leung will use the latest technology to assess the cause of your dry eye symptoms in order to provide the best possible care. Causes of dry eye:
There are many ways to treat dry eyes. We recommend that you prevent dry eye symptoms before they begin and address lifestyle factors that may be aggravating an existing condition.
Blink a lot, drink plenty of fluids and avoid eye irritants. Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a focus on vitamins like Omega 3. Make sure to use preservative free lubricating eye drops if you are taking medication that puts you at risk for dry eyes. Over the counter eye drops for dry eye are not created the same. Please consult with us which drops to use.
During prolonged computer or digital device use, make sure to take a short break every 2 hours. In general you should take a 20min break every 2 hour by looking 20 feet away.
Drink enough water. Women need at least 91 oz. of water a day and men need even more. Insufficient water intake can directly contribute to a reduced supply of tears, particularly in hot and dry climates. Humidifiers can help with increasing moisture in dry environments.
A healthy diet is essential for maintaining optimal health. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to help maintain good vision and eye health, as well as decrease dry eyes symptoms.
Fish and flax are good natural sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, and are available in tablet/supplement form. There are supplements specifically made for dry eyes. These usually consist of Omega 3 with DHA from flaxseed oil, and include vitamin C, vitamin E, Vitamin B6, magnesium, and a variety of other vitamins specifically formulated for patients with this eye condition. Please note that not all supplements are created the same. Only 2 companies make fish oils that remove the ester alcohol that provide you the omega 3 that is viable for our body to use. Please contact us for this information. Generic fish oils do not work.
