Support Your Visual Health with Eye Exams

A comprehensive eye exam allows our optometrists to identify more than just your prescription. Regularly scheduled eye exams can detect eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration, as well as vision-threatening health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and more.

As we age, we’re more likely to develop eye diseases, which is why regular visits to your optometrist are so important, especially after age 40. Our friendly optometrists will check your eyes for any signs of eye disease development at your exam.

Proper eye care always starts with an eye exam.

How Often Should You Get Your Eyes Examined?

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that adults 20–39 should have an exam every 2–3 years. People ages 40–64 should get an eye exam every 2 years. After age 65, people should get an eye examination annually. 

However, if you have diabetes or other eye health issues, your optometrist will likely want to see you on a personalized schedule.

What to Expect from an Eye Exam

At the beginning of your eye exam, we’ll ask you about any existing health concerns and your family medical history, and get an idea of your visual needs at work and at home.

Next, we’ll test your eyesight using an eye chart and determine your refractive error, if any, which may have changed since your last visit to an eye doctor. We’ll also take a look at the health of your eyes with a quick, simple slit lamp exam and retinal exam. We may dilate your pupils to give us a better view of the inner structures of your eyes for these examinations.

To screen for glaucoma, we may test the pressure inside your eye using tonometry. Depending on your particular eye care needs, we may do additional testing as well, and we’ll explain everything along the way.
