Comprehensive Eye Exams from an Experienced Team

Our eyes help us experience and interpret the world around us, and regular eye exams are a critical step in keeping them healthy for as long as possible.

Your eyes are delicate organs, so they need careful care. Regular eye exams will not only determine your required eyeglass prescription but will help us detect, diagnose, and manage possible eye diseases, as well as help us identify any age-related needs and vision changes that require attention.

At Parkview, your health and needs are the most important thing to us. We strive to make your visit as comfortable and successful as possible. Contact us to schedule your appointment today.

Your Eye Exam Frequency

The Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) recommends that adults between the ages of 18 and 64 undergo eye exams at least every 2 to 3 years. After 65, the CAO recommends annual eye exams to monitor for age-related concerns and vision issues.

However, because everyone is unique, this may be different for you. Our team will determine what frequency would work best for your needs and provide you with all the information you need.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Our comprehensive eye exams include standard and trusted eye tests using modern diagnostic equipment. Our doctors are dedicated to researching new technology in eye care to provide you with a service you can trust.

Regular eye exams involve a series of tests that check your eye health, diagnose eye disease, monitor for eye issues and concerns, and determine your visual acuity.

Every eye exam includes an ongoing discussion about your history and current conditions. This gives us insight into your specific needs so we can better understand your needs and personalize your experience.

We will then perform a series of tests that include assessments of your:

  • Depth perception
  • Binocular vision
  • Colour vision
  • Eye muscles and strength
  • Peripheral vision
  • Overall visual system
  • Internal and external structures of the eye
  • Prescription and eyewear needs

Getting a Closer Look with Innovative Technology

Just like everything else in the body, our eyes change as we grow older. We become more susceptible to vision changes like presbyopia and age-related complications like cataracts or macular degeneration

We use several diagnostic tools like tonometry, optical coherence tomography, and fundus photography to help us examine your eyes and notice any changes from your last appointment.

Tonometry is a standard test for glaucoma and ocular hypertension. We use both Perkins tonometry and non-contact tonometry to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) of the eye, which, when high, could indicate an issue that requires attention.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging test that takes a high-definition picture of the retina layers. OCT takes only a few minutes and allows us to examine your inner eye for signs of glaucoma and retinal diseases like age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Fundus photography is noninvasive imaging that photographs the back surface of the eye (the fundus), which contains the retina, macula, optic disc, fovea, and blood vessels.

Fundus photography allows us to view the back of the eye and detect various diseases and conditions, such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, and others.

An optomap is a digital image of the back of the eye captured through noninvasive, low-intensity laser scanning technology. An optomap can capture an 82% view of your retina and the back of your eye, providing a wide view that helps us examine your eyes in detail.

With an ultra-wide view, we can detect early signs of several eye diseases and health conditions, from retinal disease to cardiovascular disease, effectively and efficiently.

Protecting Your Eyes & Vision

Nothing is more important to us than your health, safety, and comfort. We strive to provide you with thorough, personalized, and comprehensive eye care, no matter your vision requirement or health concerns.
