This eye exam evaluates the sharpness of your vision and the general health of your eyes. A series of testing is done such as:
- Vision and Medical history
- Visual Acuity test
- Colour Vision test
- Muscle Alignment test
- Depth Perception test
- Peripheral Vision test
- Prescription check
- Slit lamp exam
- Glaucoma test - eye pressure test
- Dilated fundus examination
Each of our exams also include a fundus photo in order to provide the doctor with a more thorough examination of your health. Fundus photo is a great tool to record and compare the health of the eye year to year. At the same time, it’s an educational tool for the doctor to share with their patients.
In some cases, additional tests may be recommended by our optometrists. We can perform OCTs (Optical Coherence Tomography) and Visual Field tests at our office. If necessary, a referral to an ophthalmologist can be arranged for further consultation and management.
It’s important for adults (40 and over) to have their eyes examined regularly (minimum every two years) to check for problems such as: Glaucoma, Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Cataracts and Diabetic Retinopathy.
