Eye Exams Designed For Real Life

Even if you feel like your vision has not changed since the last time you saw your optometrist, regular eye exams are an essential part of taking care of your overall health. An eye exam at least every 2 years—or every year if you’re over 65—is recommended by the Canadian Association of Optometrists to help catch serious eye conditions before they show symptoms.

An eye exam is integral beyond correcting your vision. We’ll assess the health of your eyes, including diagnostic imaging if needed. During your eye exam, we can help you with any vision concerns you may be living with; conditions such as dry eyes, digital eye strain, blurred vision, and even eye-related headaches.

We’ve developed streamlined exams that are efficient and comprehensive so you can get back to your day faster with the peace of mind of knowing your vision is taken care of.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Your eye exam with us is designed to assess both your eye health and your visual acuity, which is how clear your vision is at a distance. Be sure to let us know about any new symptoms you’re experiencing and any questions or concerns you have about your eyesight.

We use our digital Reichert Phoroptor and an eye chart to quickly and accurately assess any changes to your prescription if you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. To learn about the health of your eyes, we can take detailed, non-invasive images of your retinas and test the pressure within each eye. 

Throughout your appointment, we’ll explain what we’re doing so you’re fully involved in your own health care. Finally, if you need a new pair of glasses, we’ll invite you to shop our diverse selection of frames. We also provide contact lens fittings to help you find a comfortable fitting lens for your eyes.

Preserving Your Vision for Life

As we age, our eyes age right along with us. Some of these changes come with obvious symptoms, like difficulty reading things up close, called presbyopia, which starts affecting most people once they reach their 40s.

However, other eye diseases and conditions can seem to come out of nowhere because they develop without symptoms. Your eye exam gives us a chance to use our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, if needed, to identify conditions like glaucomamacular degenerationcataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, just to name a few. Testing allows us to begin disease management before an eye condition threatens your vision or becomes more difficult to treat.
