comprehensive eye exams
The Optos Retinal Image Scanner creates digital images of the eye called Optomaps. These images are taken in seconds and typically without eye drops or dilation of the pupil that are used in traditional retinal exams.
This scanner helps our optometrists peer into 220 degrees of the retina to diagnose eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
This imaging system is included with most comprehensive exams for everyone over the age of 19 years.
Who can get an eye exam?
Babies & Children
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends babies to have their eyes examined for the first time between 6-9 months of age. It is then advisable to have their eyes examined again before they attend school and every two years going forward.
Eye examinations are an important part of overall health maintenance. Getting eyes examined every two years helps ensure your vision is crisp longer. For those with diabetes it is recommended to have eyes examined yearly.
Most eye diseases can be detected early. To help prevent any accidents related vision loss, eye exams are recommended annually for seniors with no pre-existing health conditions.
