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, our doctor 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. We will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.
Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Our doctor provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. We measure how each eye is seeing by using a standard eye chart. Depending on the results of your vision test, our doctor will prescribe prescription glasses, contacts, or recommend treatments.
Eye Function Testing
In addition to vision testing, an eye exam will includes overview of how both eye work together and check for the functional vision. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle strength, peripheral vision, and reaction to the light. The test results enable our doctor to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.
As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist examines the overall health of the eye. Dilation of the pupils and retinal imaging is necessary to have clear view of inside of eye(retina). We use the state of the art technology including a biomicroscope and a Optomap retinal scanning instrument which help our doctor to diagnosis, document and monitor ocular findings. Our doctor will review the results and discussses the findings and treatments with patient.
