Toronto Eye Exams That Exceed Expectations

You may think that eye exams are only for people who need glasses, but the truth is that everyone needs regular eye exams. Although it’s vital to ensure your eyes see clearly, that’s not all we look for in an eye exam. Many sight-limiting eye diseases like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration cause slow but permanent damage without any apparent symptoms. Regular eye exams allow us to detect any minor changes to your vision and catch early signs of disease. We have two convenient locations for Toronto eye exams.

The Right Time for an Eye Exam

Everyone, regardless of age, should receive a comprehensive eye exam at least once every two years. This keeps your prescription current and allows optometrists to monitor changes in your ocular health. 

If you are over 65, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends a complete eye exam every year. The same goes for patients who have experienced any eye disease in their past. 

Whether you’ve been getting them regularly or it’s been a while, come visit us for comprehensive Toronto eye exams.

How an Eye Health Exam Works

We don’t believe in the cookie-cutter approach. Every step of our exam process includes personalized, state-of-the-art testing. This gives us an accurate measurement of your prescription and allows us to provide specific recommendations based on your distinct visual needs. We also closely examine your ocular health. Our goal is to provide the best eye exam in Toronto for our patients.

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure you have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrists will measure how well each eye sees by using a wall chart and a reading chart. The results of these tests are represented by a fraction, with 20/20 being the norm.

Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Patel or Dr. Woods may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts lenses, or eye exercises.

Our optometrists will perform several tests to evaluate your depth perception, colour vision, eye muscle strength, peripheral vision, and eye muscle responsiveness. These simple tests help us make sure your eyes focus, move, and work together properly.

Once we have the results, we’ll be able to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing your eyes’ ability to focus or work together.

Now that we’ve tested your vision and eye function, it’s time to make sure your eyes are structurally healthy. Our team will inspect your eyes and eyelids using a special microscope, called a slit lamp and a bright light. We may also dilate your pupils to give us a better view of your eye’s interior.

We use a process called tonometry to measure eye pressure and hopefully rule out glaucoma. After completing all of these tests, your optometrist will review the results and go over any questions or concerns you might have.
