Comprehensive Eye Exam for Adults & Seniors

At Eastgate Optometric Clinic, we strive to provide comprehensive, primary eye care for the whole family. Preventative and routine eye exams are important to maintain good eye health. Often, eye and vision problems do not have obvious symptoms or signs, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, our optometrist is able to provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss. The Canadian Optometric Association recommends yearly or bi-yearly eye and vision exams in order to preserve clear, healthy vision throughout life.

Eye Exam and Consultation

During an eye exam, Dr. Tina Jang will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications you are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Jang will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Jang will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Jang may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. Jang to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Jang evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. Dilation of the pupils may be necessary because it is an important procedure that helps the doctor to determine your overall ocular health. At Eastgate Optometric Clinic, we use the state of the art technology including a biomicroscope and a Optomap retinal scanning instrument which supports the diagnosis, analysis, documentation and treatment of ocular pathology and systemic disease. These images help the optometrist to document and compare our findings at later visits. The images are immediately available for review and used as educational tools so you can better understand the health of your eyes. After completing these tests, Dr. Jang reviews the results and discusses the findings and treatments with you.
