Please bring to your eye examination:
  • All glasses and/or contact lenses that you wear

  • Sunglasses, in case we dilate your eyes
Your eye examination will take between 30 - 45 minutes.
Comprehensive Eye Examinations
Your eye examination includes the following tests:

NEW Optical coherence tomography (OCT) - this is an optional test that takes detailed cross-sectional images of your retina. It allows for earlier detection and diagnosis of retinal conditions and diseases. There is an additional fee for this test.

In order to thoroughly assess your eye health, we typically use drops to dilate your eyes during the examination. Please come prepared to have your eyes dilated, by bringing sunglasses and someone to drive you home if you feel uncomfortable driving afterwards.

At the end of your examination, you will receive a written copy of your prescription.

Children's Eye Examinations

We are able to examine children who are 6 months of age and older. Your child does not have to be able to read letters, identify pictures or even speak in order for their eyes to be examined, as many of the tests used to examine a child's eyes and vision differ from those used with adults. In most cases, we will be able to determine:

Myopia Control

We are now fitting MiSight® 1 day contact lenses to reduce the progression of your child's nearsightedness. This is truly a breakthrough lens - during your child's eye exam we can determine if if would be suitable for them.

Emergency Care

Some of our optometrists are qualified to diagnose and prescribe treatment for eye infections, inflammation and allergies, among others.

If you have eye irritation, redness, have had an eye injury, need something removed from your eye, have had a sudden loss of vision, think you have an eye infection, or any other concern, we are able to see you on an emergency basis. Please phone and let the staff know the nature of your problem and we will fit you in the same day.

Ocular Photography

Our camera is able to take digital photographs of the front surface of your eyes and your retinas. The photos are used to document various findings so they can be followed and compared over time.

Refractive Surgery Consultation and Co-Management

Wondering about laser refractive surgery? Once we have completed your eye examination, we can advise you whether or not your prescription and eye health make you a suitable candidate for laser surgery. If you decide to proceed with surgery, your exam results can be forwarded to the laser centre of your choice. We also provide your post-operative care at the intervals required by the laser centre.
