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.
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.

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