Personalized Eye Exams for Your Vision Needs

Ocular Health Examination

Regularly scheduled eye exams are essential for maintaining clear vision and healthy eyes. A complete eye exam will screen for vision problems as well as health concerns such as glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure.

By detecting early signs of disease or vision loss we are able to treat issues before they become worse.

During the exam at Eye Care Centre, your Optometrist will use the latest diagnostic tools to assess your eye health and performance.

Your Optometrist will also ask questions about your family history, current health, occupational hazards and any changes in vision you are experiencing. Please use this as an opportunity to discuss any concerns or issues you have regarding your eyes.

What to Expect

A complete eye exam includes several important steps including testing for peripheral vision, eye coordination, depth perception, color vision, close and far focusing abilities and binocular vision, or how well your eyes are working together.

Your Optometrist will also look for signs of diseases, many of which present no symptoms until irreversible damage has occurred. If any vision or health problems are discovered, your Optometrist will discuss treatment options and corrective measures, many of which are available at the Eye Care Centre.

Important Information to Know:

How often should I get an eye exam?

Optometrists recommend that you have your eyes checked every 12-24 months to assess your vision and eye health, to track changes, and to discuss any concerns.

Many diseases present no symptoms in the early phases but can be detected in a routine exam. Early detection is key to effective treatment, and regular visits ensure that a problem does not develop unnoticed. Your vision is an important part of your everyday life, and the sense that you probably rely on most.

Keep your eyes at their best by scheduling a regular eye exam.

If I just want eyeglasses do I need a full eye exam?

Generally an eye exam is needed before a prescription can be given. Eyes can change quickly, so if it has been more than a year since your last comprehensive exam then you will need to schedule an appointment to test for changes in your vision and eye health.

Once your prescription is verified and updated, we can help you to select new glasses to suit your needs.

Our Comprehensive Two-Stage Process

Our comprehensive eye exam includes two important parts. The first is administered by an optometric assistant and the second by the Optometrist.

Pre-Exam
  • A digital retinal scan examines the back of the eye to detect early signs of macular degeneration, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. You will also be checked for a detached retina or retinal holes. Finally, the scan will assess your optic nerve health and the overall health of your retinal tissue.
  • The Visual Fields test examines your peripheral vision (side vision) and looks for signs of glaucoma, the leading progressive nerve disease in the eye.
  • An auto refraction test measures power and curvature of the eye. This information is used to create an estimated prescription reading, which the Optometrist will refine.
  • The Non-Contact Tonometer (NCT) measures the pressure of your eye and looks for indicators of glaucoma, which can damage the optic nerve and eventually cause blindness.
Eye Exam
  • First, your optometrist will review your ocular and medical history and get a thorough understanding of your visual needs at home, at work, and at play.
  • The optometrist will conduct a refraction to incorporate visual clarity and visual performance.
  • Your optometrist will refine your refraction to optimize clarity and comfort of your vision.
  • Your new prescription will be compared to your old glasses to ensure a comfortable visual experience
  • Next, you’ll undergo an overall examination of eye health by an experienced Optometrist, including a second assessment of the front and back of the eye.
  • You’ll receive a thorough explanation of findings and your Optometrist’s recommendations.
How Long Does the Exam Take?

A complete eye exam takes approximately 30-60 minutes to complete. This includes the preliminary test conducted by the optometric assistant and the exam conducted by a certified and experienced Optometrist. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns with the Optometrist. Our staff are also available to assist you in choosing glasses and contact lenses.
