Each examination is tailored to the individual’s needs. We book 60-minute slots so that each aspect of a patient’s visual needs can be addressed. The following types of examinations can be done:
Comprehensive Eye Examination
Everybody should have periodic and thorough eye examinations as part of routine primary care, especially since many eye diseases are silent or asymptomatic. Children should have their first eye test at 6 months. Our comprehensive eye examination is a series of tests, done by a behavioral optometrist, that assesses the health, sight, focus and alignment of the eyes.
We use the newest equipment available to screen for ocular pathology. This includes a fundus camera and an OCT scanner to detect eye diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, macular swelling, diabetic retinopathy and more. Your refractive status will then be determined to provide you with the best and most comfortable glasses. Vision is more than having twenty-twenty sight and we design your glasses according to this principle. The frame selection is just as important as the eye test. A professional will guide you in selecting the perfect pair of glasses that will look and feel great.
Binocular Vision Examination
Do you have reading glasses and still get headaches at the end of the day? Do you struggle with double vision or tired eyes? This could be due to an unstable binocular system. Download the questionnaire and answer the questions. If most of your answers are “yes”, book an appointment for a full binocular assessment.
Binocular vision examination includes examination and developing a treatment plan for strabismus (one eye turning in or out) for all ages.
Visual Perception Examination
Visual perception is the process of “taking in” visual information in our environment and organise, interpret and give meaning to it. If perception is incorrect, imprecise or altered, problems with spelling, reading, math, comprehension and handwriting may occur.
If visual information is perceived incorrectly, it cannot be matched or integrated with our other senses. It causes distraction and interferes with learning experiences. That what is seen can not be “trusted” and hampers the ability to learn. Poor visual perceptual skills cannot be outgrown and if not treated a child will continue to fall behind in class even if it looks like they are working harder than other children in the same class.
The visual perception examination will detect insufficiencies or poorly developed skills and a treatment plan can be prescribed.
