Eye Exams

Comprehensive eye exams for the entire family - children, adults and seniors.

A comprehensive eye examination may include some or all of the following (adapted from the Canadian Association of Optometry definition of a comprehensive eye examination):

  • Case history including an analysis of visual needs

  • Measurement of visual acuity of each eye with or without corrective lenses

  • Diagnosis of the refractive status or prescription (focusing power of the eye)

  • Binocular vision assessment (ability to see using both eyes together), as it relates to eye coordination, depth perception, and eye movements

  • Colour vision evaluation

  • Assessment of the health of the eye itself both inside and outside (including a dilated examination as needed)

  • A neurological assessment of the visual system including a review of the pupil reactions, ocular motility, and an assessment of the peripheral vision

  • Screening for glaucoma, including testing pressure inside the eye, looking inside the eye at the retina and optic nerve, as well as performing peripheral vision tests

  • Additional testing may be needed based on the results of the previous tests to confirm or rule out possible problems, to clarify uncertain findings, or to provide a more in depth assessment

    • These can include, but are not limited to tests such as:

      • Retinal photography

      • Corneal topography 

      • Optic nerve or macular scans with OCT (optical coherence tomography)

      • Automated visual field testing

  • All testing is used to determine the appropriate prescriiption lenses or to determine if a patient needs vision therapy or medical or surgical treatment

  • Recommendations for future eye care

New and returning patients are always welcome at South East Eyecare!
