Eye Exam

Our optometrists have the expertise to customize your eye examination to your visual needs: occupation, hobbies, sports, screen time & ergonomics.

You might think that you have perfect vision, but during a complete eye exam, your optometrist can fully evaluate your visual health requirements, using our questionnaire as well as various tests.
  • Visual Acuity and refraction (the power of your eyes), with cycloplegic drops if required
  • Binocular vision (alignment, eye movement, stereoscopic vision)
  • Color vision
  • Ocular health, with the aid of pupil dilation if required
  • Examination of intraocular pressure and visual field
