Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Queenston Eye Care, Dr. Dhaliwal provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call (905) 662-9043 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
Digital Retinal Imaging
We offer high resolution retinal photography, which uses a computer-integrated digital imaging system to record a detailed view of the retina. We take high quality pictures of the inside of the eye and make diagnosis of a wide range of eye health conditions. This picture provides an excellent reference point for future comparisons.
Digital retinal imaging assists in the prevention, detection and management of problems such as diabetic changes, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy, glaucoma and other diseases.
We recommend that all our patients have this test. It is especially important for those with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, retinal diseases, flashing lights, decreased vision or a strong glasses prescription. Using the state of the art equipment, helps us best educate you on your health and wellness.

Digital Eye Strain
Now that we live in the “Digital Era”, screen time is unavoidable for most. We are constantly exposed to a large amount of harmful blue light emitted by our electronics. Computer monitors, laptops, tablets, smart phones, LED TVs – even compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs emit blue light. Digital Eye Strain arises from daily over-exposure to blue light, leading to the symptoms listed below. Read more.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye is a common chronic eye condition where the eyes do not produce enough tears or produce poor quality tears leading to quick evaporation, leaving your eyes irritated and dry. Dry Eye symptoms are more common in older adults and in patients with certain diseases, such as diabetes, allergic conjunctivitis, or Sjögren’s syndrome. Common causes include extensive outdoor activity in the wind and sun, staring at a computer screen for long periods of time, wearing contact lenses for extended times, certain medications, or fatigue. Cigarette smokers are at a higher risk for chronic dry eye. Read more.
