Comprehensive Eye Exams

As a routine eye examination, a complete vision and ocular health assessment will be performed. Routine testing for macular degeneration, cataracts, galucoma, retinal disorders and general health problems (hypertension, diabetes, etc.,) are done at annual visits.

Dilated Fundas Exams

This test can be part of the routine eye exam. It uses dilating eye-drops to enlarge the pupillary opening to obtain a superior view of the back of the eye (retina). The effects of the eye drops are light sensitivity and some blurred vision that can last for 2-3 hours. We recommend patients wear sunglasses on the way home, however even with dark sunglasses driving on a sunny day may be very difficult. Having a driver with you is the safest strategy.

Automated Visual Fields

This is a computerized test to measure central and peripheral visual fields. It is usually performed for detection of glaucoma, optic nerve disorders and neurological conditions. The testing of visual fields can also be done to determine if standards are met for driving licences.

Optomap Retinal Exam

The Optomap Retinal Exam is a screening tool that can assess up to 80% of the central and peripheral retina. It can be done with out the use of dilation drops. We recommend everyone have it at their annual eye examination.

Laser Vision Surgery Consultation

Refractive surgery eligibility can be established during the comprehensive eye exam.The risks and benefits of the latest technology will be communicated so the patient can make an informed decision. Pre and post laser surgery management care can be done at our office whereas the surgery is done at the laser vision center of your choice.

Contact Lenses

Our office is equipped to fit, train, and dispense a full range of contact lenses: Disposable (daily, biweekly, monthly), toric, multifocal, colour, rigid gas permeable (RGPs)……

Corneal Pachometry

This test uses ultrasound to accurately measure the thickness of the cornea. It allows a more precise reading of the intraocular pressure (IOP) when testing for glaucoma and aids in assessing the suitability for laser correction.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

This is a highly detailing imaging technique to capture cross-sectional views of the retina. It is useful for macular diseases such as macular holes and macular degeneration, as well as for optic neuropathies such as glaucoma.

Frequently Asked Questions

As of November 1, 2004, OHIP will insure yearly eye examinations for children 0-19 years old and seniors 65 years old and above. People between 20 and 64 may be covered thru OHIP if they have specific medical conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma or diabetes. If you are not covered by OHIP, your health care benefits from work may insure you. Check with your employer or benefits department.

You should bring a list of all medications you are taking, your current glasses and Health Card to every appointment. If this is your first visit, we will ask you to fill out a general history form.

We recommend to see children at six months of age, and then yearly after age 3. You can bring them at any age if you see or suspect a problem. They do not need to know how to read, or have to respond for an examination. It is important for children to have routine check ups because they are often not aware if there is a vision problem. Early detection and treatment of many vision disorders decreases the chance of learning problems and minimizes the risk of amblyopia (lazy eye).
