What is Our Total Eye Health Exam?

Our eye exam is designed to tell us everything about your vision and eye health. We test your vision, acuity, eye coordination, prescription, etc, and then assess your eye health with our state-of-the-art diagnostic technology; all in a comfortable and informative manner.

Many eye diseases don’t show any symptoms until they’ve already caused permanent vision loss. By performing an eye exam, we’re screening for and hopefully ruling out these eye diseases. Then we’ll take the time to educate you on how to minimize your risk of developing them in the future.

When the blood vessels in the retina start to deteriorate, reduced blood flow and bleeding cause reduced function of the macula; the cluster of cells that are responsible for your central vision. This disease is called age-related macular degeneration, and it’s the leading cause of vision loss in Canada.

Once AMD is detected, it can be slowed with treatment; preserving your vision. However, AMD usually develops without any noticeable symptoms, so the only way to get a diagnosis is through regular eye exams.

This eye disease is notorious. It slowly, silently and permanently damages vision. If eye pressure becomes too high, it causes cumulative damage to the optic nerve. If untreated, the damage eventually produces a progressive tunnel vision effect eventually resulting in blindness.

Luckily, glaucoma can be treated once it’s been diagnosed. But the damage it causes can’t be undone and the vision it destroys can’t be brought back.

We test for glaucoma at every eye exam; giving you the best chance of early diagnosis and preserving your vision.
