The Importance of Eye Exams

Eye exams are fundamental to everybody’s ocular health.

As you age, it becomes even more important to have your eyes examined regularly. Your eyes become increasingly susceptible to diseases ranging from glaucoma to age-related macular degeneration.

Most eye diseases do not demonstrate symptoms in their early stages—this makes them difficult to detect without the help of your optometrist. Left unchecked, you could experience permanent vision loss before realizing you even have an eye disease.

Vision loss is usually permanent, but more often than not it is preventable. The first step to protecting your eyes, though, is having an eye exam.

When to Have an Eye Exam

Adults and seniors should have their eyes examined at least every year, but we may recommend more frequent exams for those with pre-existing eye conditions or a family history of eye disease. 

Even if you don’t wear glasses or contacts, regular exams can help detect changes in your vision before they become a problem.

What to Expect & What to Bring

When you come in for your eye exam, make sure to bring:

  • A list of medications, supplements, and eye drops you use
  • The current glasses or contact lenses you use
  • Sunglasses (for dilated eye exams)*
  • Health/OHIP card
  • Private medical insurance card**

Those with diabetes may want to bring in their most recent A1c readings, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

*If you are over the age of 20 and/or at risk of eye disease, your eyes will be dilated.) Dilating drops expand your pupils, temporarily impairing your near vision and making your eyes light-sensitive.

**If you would like us to bill your insurance, please email us 24 hours in advance so that we may predetermine the coverage.

During your eye exam, we test for visual acuity, refractive errors, and potential signs of eye diseases or conditions.

Visual acuity is a measure of how well you are able to see details such as letters, numbers, or pictures at a distance and near. 

A reduction in visual acuity may be indicative of an issue such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or an eye disease.

A refraction test involves using specialized tools to determine if you have a prescription, whether visual correction is needed, and, if so, to what extent. This complex process can aid in determining the best treatment for you.

Our wealth of experience, modern technology, and detailed assessment of the risk factors present promote a complete evaluation of your eyes for various diseases

We personalize the examination process according to the unique needs of each patient.
