Adult eye exams:
Eyeglass prescription check, dilating exam to check the health of your eyes, and digital retinal photos. It is recommended adults have eye exams every 1-2 years. 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.
Children’s eye exams:
Children up to 19 years of age are covered for 1 comprehensive eye exam every 12 months . Dilation drops are not used on children unless it is found necessary by the eye doctor after the first visit. Your child does not need to know the alphabet. Instead, they are often asked to identify shapes and pictures during the eye exam to make sure their eyes are developing properly and to see if glasses are needed. For infant and toddlers, an objective test is done so they do not need to be able to communicate. It is recommended that children have their eyes tested annually.
Senior’s eye exams:
Similar to the adult comprehensive eye exam, this comprehensive exam checks your vision and the health of your eyes. The same tests are performed as the adult eye exam (general health and vision history, visual acuity, refraction, glaucoma tests, dilated fundus exam, etc.) but starting at the year of 65, these tests are covered by OHIP once a year. Although the test is covered by OHIP, there are additional diagnostic tests that are recommended that are not covered by OHIP.
Diabetic eye exams:
A comprehensive eye exam is recommended annually for people with diabetes. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can lead to diabetic retinopathy, a disease that can severely damage the retina resulting in permanent vision loss. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious condition that needs to be regularly monitored by an optometrist and annual eye exams for this condition are covered by OHIP once a year regardless of age.
Retinal imaging and OCT (optical coherence tomoraphy):
We provide retinal examinations using advanced technology that combines deep ocular tissue analysis and images. It allows us to see changes in the eye structures that are not visible during regular eye exams. Early diagnosis leads to quicker treatment and better outcomes.
