Our goal is to help everyone in the Toronto area to see to their maximum potential with optimum optical lenses and visual aids because we know how important your ocular health is. We strive to provide the full circle of care to all our patients. Our comprehensive eye exams include:
- Visual acuity and refractive status assessment: Your optometrist will determine your vision with and without correction and then perform a complete refractive assessment to determine the most accurate prescription for your glasses for clearest and most comfortable vision. We utilize a digital cutting edge phoropter technology instead of the conventional manual phoropter to perform the subjective part of refraction (this is sometimes referred to as the ‘better one or better two’ test).
- Binocular assessment: to determine how your two eyes work together as a team
- Accommodative assessment: To determine your eyes’ focusing ability at near and distant and during prolonged periods of reading and computer use. Your optometrist will also typically assess your vision for computer distance and other intermediate tasks.
- Pupil assessment: determine how your pupil react to light and whether they have any physiologic or other anomalies that might be an indication of other health conditions such as nerve palsy and Horner’s syndrome.
- Extra-ocular muscle function test: Determine the function of the muscles that help your eyes move in all directions.
- Cover test: Assess for misalignment in the eyes and detect early and advanced stages of eye turns (strabismus) or phoric disorders and improper binocular postures.
- Visual field assessment: Assess your peripheral vision. This test is done for different reasons and also has different modes. Manual confrontation test is typically done routinely for gross assessment, whereas more specific automated tests are done to assess for specific conditions such as glaucoma and brain tumors screening.
- Intraocular pressure test: Assesses the pressure inside your eyes for indications of glaucoma or other disorders leading to elevated eye pressure.
- Complete assessment of the anterior segment of your eyes: Your optometrist will examine the health of your eyes under the microscope (the slit lamp test) to determine if there any corneal or other anterior segment disease like conjunctivitis (pink eye) or other inflammatory eye disease or infections. Your doctor will also assess the lids and the adnexa for related medical problems.
- Posterior segment disease: This test is typically done through the dilation of the pupil with drops to examine the retina, the optic nerve and the other structures at the back of the eye.
- Retinal imaging: Our 360 Eyecare office prides itself in utilizing cutting edge digital retinal scans for complete assessment and documentations.
- Other specialty tests that your optometrist might need to perform for your specific case.
