About Us

Eye sight is considered to be the most important of all the senses. In fact, 80 percent of learning comes directly through vision. Without our sense of sight, the world can become a very scary and dangerous place. Our highly capable team here at your local Optometrist, is led by Dr. Thadshika Parthipan who is dedicated to your visual care.

Providing you with everything from general checkups to the treatment of all manner of eye problems, our team here at your local Optometrist are completely dedicated to our patients and the swift treatment of any problems with their eyes.

We have two practices, one in Rockwood and one in Guelph. Our Rockwood practice is located on Alma Street on Highway 7, and our Guelph practice is located at the junction of Starwood Drive and Grange Road & close to the Big Bear Food Mart.

 

Our Equipment:

autoref
Nidek Auto Ref / Kerato / Tonometer TONOREF II
Three essential measurements combined in one UNIQUE instrument: The world’s first
  • Auto Refractometer (measurement of an index of refraction)
  • Auto Keratometer (also known as a ophthalmometer, is used for measuring the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea)
  • Non-Contact Tonometer (determine the intraocular pressure (IOP), the fluid pressure inside the eye, It is an important test in the evaluation of patients at risk from glaucoma)
740i
Zeiss 740i Visual Field Perimeter
The gold standard in perimetry to aid in glaucoma diagnosis and management. A visual field test is an eye examination that can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, brain tumors or other neurological deficits.  Machine based tests aid diagnostics by allowing a detailed printout of the patient’s visual field.

Nidek Smart Refractor RT-5100
A phoropter  is an instrument used during an eye examination to measure refractive error and determine eyeglass prescriptions. Typically, the patient sits behind the phoropter, and looks through it at an eye chart. The optometrist then changes lenses and other settings, while asking the patient for feedback on which settings give the best vision. Smart Refractor is the Next Best. With computer controlled lens changes and settings to get the best vision possible.

Nidek Optical Coherence Tomography Retina Scan
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina.With OCT, we can see each of the retina’s distinctive layers. This allows your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis. They also provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and diseases of the retina. These retinal diseases include age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic eye disease.
