Eye Exams Are The Only Way to Stay On Top of Your Eye Health

Book Appointment

Winnipeg receives an average of 2,353 hours of sunshine per year across an average of 316 days. On most days, the average Canadian will spend just under 5 hours in front of a computer, mobile phone, or television. That’s a lot for your eyes to take.

Isn’t it time for a little preventative maintenance?

Most eye diseases, including serious ones that can impair your eyesight (such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy), start their development asymptomatically. This means that you may be developing an eye disease without realizing it.

For diseases like glaucoma, by the time you notice changes to your vision, it’s too late to reverse them. Preventative eyecare is about detecting, diagnosing, and treating eye diseases before they get out of control.

An hour per year is all it takes to ensure your eyes are being properly looked after. For all the hours you spend enjoying the sun and the screens, an hour per year to make sure everything is operating as it should be is a small time investment to make.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Our eye exams are painless and non-invasive. The exam is broken down into two sections: preliminary testing and testing with an optometrist.

The first step of the eye exam is to complete a few diagnostic tests that provide us with some important information. These tests include:

    • Autorefractor – This test takes a measurement of the shape of your eyes and will provide a rough estimate of what prescription – if any – is needed for corrective lenses.
    • Visual field testing – This test assesses the quality of your peripheral vision.
    • Digital retinal imaging – A photo of your retina (the back of your eye) is taken. If you have been a patient of ours before, this image will be compared to images taken at other exams. This will help us identify the development of eye diseases as well as to get a visual on the health of your retina.
    • Tonometry – This test measures your eye pressure to determine if it is a normal range. High eye pressure is linked with the development of glaucoma.
    • Ocular coherence tomography – Also called OCT imaging, this test is used to create a visualization of your eye, and provides the optometrist with a very high resolution representation of your eye.

Once the preliminary tests are completed, you’ll meet with one of our optometrists who will discuss your vision, answer any questions you may have, and perform a few final tests that will complete the eye exam. These tests include:

    • Slit lamp exam – During this test the front surfaces of the eye are checked with a magnifying glass and a bright light to look for abnormalities (such as the development of cataracts or when assessing persistent dry eye).
    • Refraction test – During this test we will assess the corrective lens prescription needed to provide ideal vision.

We may perform other tests as needed.
