The Eye Exam
Doctors of Optometry play an essential and ongoing role in ensuring the health of you and your family.
We diagnose, treat and help prevent diseases and disorders affecting the eyes and the visual system. We also assist in identifying general health conditions that are often first detected through an eye exam, provide referrals to specialists and help manage post eye-surgery health. From infants to grade-schoolers through to grandparents, Doctors of Optometry not only ensure quality of vision and eye health, but quality of life.
As Doctors of Optometry, we evaluate many factors that can affect your vision and eye health. We review your case history, conduct an external and internal exam of your eyes, and measure vision qualities, such as eye movements and coordination, sharpness of vision and peripheral vision. We also evaluate your ability to adjust focus, and to see colour and depth normally. If we detect problems, we may recommend glasses, contact lenses, eye exercises, medication or surgery.
Here at the Little Eye Shop, comprehensive full eye exams involve testing for a glasses prescription, glaucoma testing, cataract evaluation, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, binocular vision assessment, and much more.
We will also perform a full dry eye work-up to diagnose and take control of pesky irritations, discomfort, and redness.
Many serious eye conditions don’t have obvious symptoms. Some eye diseases only show symptoms when the condition is advanced and difficult, or even impossible, to treat. A comprehensive eye exam provides the full assurance of vision and eye health that a simple sight test or a school vision screening cannot.
Your vision is priceless. Comprehensive eye exams by a Doctor of Optometry not only ensure good vision and eye health, but peace of mind.
