An Eye Exam is Your First Step in Holistic Eye Care Wellness

Most Adults Need an Eye Exam Once Every One or Two Years

Children and seniors should have annual eye exams, as should people with diabetes or another medical condition that has significant potential to impact your eyes.

Utilizing Advanced Diagnostic Equipment

Leveraging powerful cameras and testing techniques – such as OCT Imaging and Digital Retinal Photography – we are able to gain insight into your eye health in ways that were not possible just 10 years ago.

A Fast, Pain-Free Test

Our exams are not invasive and do not cause any pain. They are detailed, accurate, and give us the ability to ensure that your eye health is the best it can be.

Most Vision Loss is Not Reversible- Early Detection & Treatment is Key
Preventative eye care takes only an hour or two per year and is your best way to ensure great long-term eye sight. Did you know that:

  • ¾ of vision loss can be prevented assuming early detection and treatment
  • Most eye diseases are asymptomatic in their initial stages

Almost all medical benefits programs extend coverage for eye exams and preventative eye care. We encourage you to utilize these benefits and come see us for an eye exam once per year.

Next Steps

Why We Encourage Preventative Eye Care

Your eyes are unique in that they often will not show obvious signs something is wrong until it is too late. Considering the role they play in our quality of life, we believe that everyone should take care to protect them. Eye diseases like Glaucoma typically develop without obvious symptoms. Left unchecked, you may find your field of vision significantly reduced before you realize something is going on. By then, it is almost always too late.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

During your eye exam we will:

  • Take a history of previous eye problems
  • Check prescription (refractive error)
  • Check eye health and disease
  • Screen for peripheral vision problems and binocular vision status
  • Counsel on preventative eye health
Tests Performed During an Eye Exam
  • Digital Retina Camera – Enables us to see signs of diabetes, macular degeneration, or developing cataracts. This also enables us to determine optic nerve health.
  • Cirrus HD-OCT – Advanced imaging technology that creates a digital cross-section of your retina and optic nerve.
  • Auto-Refractor – This determines the curvature of your eye. This is helpful for approximating lens prescription and contact fitment.
  • Non-Contact Tonometer – This device, known as the “air puff”, measures eye pressure. This is helpful in detecting Age-Related Macular Degeneration (aka, AMD).
  • Visual Examination – An overview of health and vision concerns and conditions.
  • Digital Retina Scan – Review images from the digital retinal camera for health concerns.
  • Peripheral Vision Screen – Determines the health of the connection between the optic nerve and brain.
  • Nerve Fibre Layer Analysis – New technology that helps to diagnose glaucoma ten years earlier than previous methods.
  • Visual Clarity Tests – Determines precise prescription for optimal vision.
