At our office our doctors offer full-scope comprehensive eye exams for all ages. A complete eye exam at our office includes:
- A thorough case history of your concerns
- Accurate determination of the best prescription lenses for your needs
- Assessment of your binocular function (how your eyes co-ordinate to work together to produce single, clear, and comfortable vision at all distances)
- A complete ocular health exam, including assessment for eye surface disorders such as dry eye, and a dilated retinal exam to assess the internal structures of the eye and monitor for signs of eye disease
- Individualized testing for your age and vision concerns, which may include additional binocular vision or eye health tests
If you are not due for a complete exam, our doctors can do partial assessments to address your specific concerns. Any change in your vision could indicate a problem with your eyes and should be assessed by your optometrist, regardless of when your last eye exam was.
DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING
This technology allows your optometrist to take a high-resolution photograph of the retina. This can show early abnormalities that may threaten your vision, and allows for accurate monitoring of changes that might appear over time. While very useful for monitoring diabetic changes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other retinal disorders, a baseline image of your healthy eyes can help detect early warning signs of eye disease that is not yet affecting your vision. A healthy photograph can be compared with future images to detect changes.
At our clinic, our doctors strive to provide the most thorough and comprehensive eye care possible. As new technology becomes available and proves to contribute to a higher standard of care, the eye exams we provide at our clinic evolve. We are proud to offer some new testing to all of our patients, with the goal of detecting and treating eye disease as early and effectively as possible.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. This allows not only a view of the surface of the retina, but the underlying areas where early signs of eye disease often presents. These images help with early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of retinal diseases and conditions including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and post-surgical complications, among many others. This imaging is available to all of our patients. Your optometrist will discuss if this imaging is beneficial for you.
Our doctors can determine your suitability for contact lens wear and fit you into the perfect lens for your lifestyle. We fit the most current lenses available on the market and offer the healthiest products for your eyes. Whether you are a current contact lens wearer or are interested in starting lens wear, your optometrist can review your options with you. We offer initial contact lens training by highly trained and experienced staff, routine contact lens assessments, and emergency and trouble-shooting appointments to address your needs and concerns.

LOW VISION ASSESSMENT AND DISPENSING OF LOW VISION AIDS
Our doctors can provide an assessment of your specific visual needs and demonstrate the benefit of the many visual aids that are available. We are able to dispense vision aids through the Assistive Devices Program (ADP) offered through the government of Ontario, which can provide funding for these low vision aids. Please contact our office to make an appointment if you are interested in discussing low vision concerns and ADP eligibility for you or a family member.
VISUAL FIELD TESTING
If determined necessary by your optometrist, a standardized test of your peripheral vision can de done. This test is useful in diagnosing and managing vision loss in many conditions, including glaucoma, optic nerve damage, and vision loss due to damage along the visual pathway in the brain.
Our office can also perform the testing necessary for Ministry of Transportation requirements for all classes of drivers licence.
