IOL Master Testing
The primary goal of our practice is to provide you with the best overall eye care possible. We provide IOL Master testing because this is the most sophisticated and accurate way to determine the power of the intraocular lens (IOL) implant that will be used for your cataract surgery. The IOL Master allows fast, accurate measurements of eye length and surface curvature, necessary for detrmining the strength of the lens used in cataract surgery. The IOL Master is efficient as it allows measurements to be taken with confidence in the accuracy of results. Furthermore, it is non-contact (nothing touches the eye and no drops are needed) and non invasive. The current OHIP covered ultrasound technology works very well, however, IOL Master technology provides a five fold increase in accuracy when measuring the length of the eye. IOL Master technology is considered non-essential and therefore not covered by OHIP. IOL Master technology is an optional service we provide to our patients who are intersted in the most accurate and technologically advanced measurements of their eyes.
