Your Vision is Important
Routine eye exams can detect vision problems, eye disease and general health problems before you are aware a problem exists. Detecting eye health problems is the most important aspect of an eye exam.
Our optometrists (OD) thoroughly check all our patients for cataracts, glaucoma, retinal holes, macular degeneration, and general health problems, which may have ocular indications, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. As a highly trained health professional, your optometrist will provide a detailed evaluation of your vision and eye health.
We do children eye examinations starting at 6-12 months old. We also recommend children at the age of 3 to begin getting their eyes checked annually. Providing visual assessments for infants can determine how well they can see, if the eyes are equal in power, the development of their eyes, and any signs of potential eye diseases.

Eye Health Exam Process
Other Visual Tests
When you first walk into our vision clinic, you will receive a friendly greeting. If you have an appointment, our staff will ask you for your name and/or health card and get you started with our eye health exam process. Our staff would also ask to make sure that all contact information is correct. If there are any changes to your contact information, we would like to keep it updated in our patient database. All information is kept confidential and private.
All patients must be pre-screened before seeing the optometrist. This procedure is to provide the optometrist with additional measurements to ensure a proper visual assessment. At this stage, an auto-refractor and NCT (non-contact tonometer) will be used to take measurements of your eye. An auto-refractor is used to get an estimate of the eye’s refractive error and an NCT is used to measure eye pressure. After the measurements are completed, you may be asked if you have any chief complaints, concerns or medical history about your eyes that will be addressed to your Optometrist.
Feel free to talk to your optometrist about any vision problems. Our environment is focused on making patients feel comfortable. Our optometrists and staff would love to hear and understand your eye concerns during the eye health exam process. Our optometrists thoroughly check all our patients for cataracts, glaucoma, retinal holes, macular degeneration, and general health problems, which may have ocular indications, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. As a highly trained health professional, your optometrist will provide a detailed evaluation of your vision and eye health.
Other Visual Tests
Based on the optometrist’s assessment, patients may require to do additional tests such as a visual field analyzer, which tests for visual field defects. If you are interested in contact lenses, corneal topography might be needed. If you are interested in LASIK or refractive surgery, pachymetry will be conducted. If you are interested in purchasing eyewear, a PD measurement is necessary for proper vision correction and fitting. If the optometrist diagnoses for cataracts or glaucoma, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) would need to be completed. OCT is a specialized device similar to an MRI, which scans the retina for diagnosis and monitoring progression of eye diseases.
Retinal photography is another service that uses a specialized camera to take a picture of the interior surface of the eye including the retina, optic disc, macula and posterior pole. This service is recommended, but optional. Retinal photographs should be taken every year in order for the optometrist to properly monitor the overall health of your eyes. In order to take a proper image of the retinal, the patient would require to be dilated to increase the size of the pupil. The dilation and retinal photography process takes between 10 to 15 minutes. Dilating pupils will slightly blur the patient’s vision. It is recommended to wait at least half an hour to an hour before driving. We also recommend wearing sunglasses to provide comfort in bright sunlight.
