What to Expect from Your Eye Exam

Your eye health and vision can change as you age, but we’re here to help.

We dedicate ourselves to providing personalized experiences for every patient. No matter your needs, we adapt our eye exam process to reflect your goals while maintaining our commitment to quality and thoroughness.

Initial Conversation

We start every eye exam with a conversation about your health history, your family’s health history, and any eye or vision problem you may have. This conversation helps us orient the exam to suit your needs and provides you with an opportunity to ask questions or stress concerns.

Once we ensure your vision and health history are correct and up to date, we’ll start with the rest of the exam.

Assessing your visual strength and acuity is how we determine your lens prescription. We have several tests to do this, but some of the most tried and true techniques include a phoropter (a device that tests your vision with multiple lenses) and a Snellen eye chart.

Once we have your lens prescription, we will then screen your eyes for diseases.

Eye disease screenings are crucial for every eye exam. As you age, your eyes are at a higher risk for diseases that should be diagnosed by an optometrist.

We use the latest retinal imaging and tonometry technology to search for signs of eye diseases. These diseases can include glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration, among others.

At the end of the exam, we’ll provide our findings and recommendations for managing your eye health and vision. Depending on your needs, we may update your glasses and contact lens prescriptions, prescribe medication, or recommend treatments like laser eye surgery.

How Often Should You Have Eye Exams?

According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, most patients should have an eye exam once every 2 years. However, we recommend annual exams so we can catch the earliest signs of issues before they permanently affect your eyes.

Are You at Risk?

You may need more frequent eye exams if you’re at risk of developing certain eye conditions. You may be at risk if you:
