Comprehensive Eye Exams
Our comprehensive eye exams target important aspects of both your vision and eye health. We not only try to solve common vision problems, such as the correction of distance or near vision with glasses, we also evaluate the entire eyes to check for medical issues such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and dry eyes. The following ten points explain some of the services we provide during a full eye examination:
- 1. Thorough measurement of your distance, intermediate and reading vision to determine whether you are a candidate for glasses, contact lenses or laser surgery.
- 2. Recommendations regarding the type of corrective lenses that will enhance your work performance and meet your lifestyle needs.
- 3. Discussion of your general and family health history to customize a plan for protecting the future well-being of your eyes.
- 4. Measurement of eye coordination and if warranted, depth perception and peripheral field of vision testing.
- 5. Detection of the early signs of surface eye conditions, such as pink eye, keratoconus and dry eyes and subsequent medical treatment if required.
- 6. Detection of internal eye diseases that can slowly rob you of your vision, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
- 7. Additional testing and procedures when necessary, such as digital retinal photography, pachymetry (ie. ultrasound to determine corneal thickness) and colour vision assessment.
- 8. Lifestyle and nutritional recommendations for protecting and maintaining your vision throughout life.
- 9. Prompt referral to specialists when necessary.
- 10. Specialty consultation, such as pre- and post-operative assessments for laser surgery and low vision evaluations.
We examine all age groups, from infants to seniors. Please note that children under 20 and seniors over 65 are covered under OHIP for a full eye examination every 12 months. Partial examinations addressing a specific complaint for these age groups are also covered anytime following a full eye exam. Since a change in legislation in 2004, Adults aged 20-64 are not covered under OHIP for eye examinations, though some medical conditions (eg. diabetes) are still eligible for OHIP coverage.
