COMPREHENSIVE Eye Exams
"Doctors of optometry recommend that adults have a comprehensive eye exam at least every two years. In some cases, more frequent visits may be required.
Our eyes change as we age, and as many common eye diseases have no early signs or symptoms, regular eye exams are the only way to ensure your eyes are healthy. During an eye exam, your doctor of optometry will examine the tissues and structures inside the eye, looking for eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, as well as tears in the retina, bleeding and tumours. They will also look for early signs of serious medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular disease during an exam.
Based on the results, your doctor of optometry will advise you about corrective lens options most suited to your personal needs, the treatment options, or will refer you to a specialist if further evaluation or treatment is required"

The OCT and Humphreys Visual equipment integrates the data from each and produce a report providing the Doctor greater accuracy in monitoring your eye conditions overtime.
Children's Eye Exams
Eye exams for children are extremely important because 5 to 10 percent of preschoolers and 25 percent of school-aged children have vision problems. Early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial because children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early. According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age. Children then should have additional eye exams at age 3, and annually to follow.
