Preventive Health Care for Your Eyes

To see your best, look your best, and be your best, it’s essential to visit your optometrist regularly for an eye exam. Your eye exam is our opportunity to check the health of your eyes, assess any discomfort like dry eyes, and ensure your prescription is up to date.

We believe in a thorough, custom approach to providing eye care to each of our patients, so we’ll always take time to get to know you and to explain everything that happens in your eye exam.

What Happens During an Eye Exam?

Your eye exam with us begins with a thorough history of your ocular health as well as a discussion of your overall health. This will include any medications you’re taking, as many have potential side effects on the eyes, and understanding any increased risks to your eyes related to your lifestyle or work.

We’ll also assess:

  • Your visual acuity and glasses prescription
  • The alignment of your eyes and pupil reflexes
  • The pressure in your eye, which can be a warning sign for glaucoma
  • The health of your eyes, including dilating your pupils to better view their inner structures

We may recommend an iWellness scan as part of a comprehensive eye exam. This quick, noninvasive imaging procedure uses the latest optical coherence tomography technology to safely take 3D scans of the internal structures of your eyes. It creates high-resolution images that allow us to detect eye diseases at their earliest stages, when treatment can be most effective.

Based on the exam and any diagnostic imaging done, your optometrist will determine a treatment and management plan that is customized to your vision and eye health needs.

How Often Should You Get an Eye Examination?

As a general guideline, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends:

  • Healthy adults under 40 should have an eye exam every 2 or 3 years
  • People 41–64 should have an eye exam at least every 2 years
  • People 65 and older should have an annual eye exam

Once we’ve had a chance to get to know you and your particular vision needs, we may recommend a personalized eye exam schedule.
