Eye Exam Valleytown Eye Care

Examinations – What To Expect

Your eye exam will start with an optometric assistant taking you to the pre-test room. Here, we will review your ocular and health history as well as take some automated measurements, such as autorefraction, autokeratometry and lensometry, all tests that will that aid your examination.

Eye Exams not only determine your need for prescription lenses but will also help detect the following; Glaucoma, Cataracts, Macular degeneration, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Contact lens problems, retinal and corneal disorders. Many other tests such as colour vision testing and stereopsis will be performed as required.

Peripheral Vision Testing Valleytown Eye Care

Peripheral Vision Testing

Peripheral visual is the part of your vision that we refer to as your “side vision” or that part that is not in the centre of your gaze.  This is important for many reasons including detection and mobility.

The testing of peripheral vision is called Visual Field testing and is usually an automated test.  It is essential for detection of certain eye diseases and also proper management of several ocular and systemic health conditions including glaucoma, pituitary tumours, stroke, macular degeneration and diabetes.

It is also a required test for Ministry of Transportation licensing.

Digital Retinal Pictures Valleytown Eye Care

Digital Retinal Pictures

This technology enables us to more accurately assess and monitor ocular and systemic health. Although, it is recommended for most adults, this is particularly useful in the management of diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, strokes of the eye and other vascular abnormalities.
