At Henderson Vision Centre, we are dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible vision you can. Eye exams are among the most important things to help maintain and protect your eyesight and ocular health.
Many eye diseases that can threaten your vision begin asymptomatically. Without professional intervention and testing, you may not notice a severe eye condition until it’s caused irreversible damage.
When you visit us for an eye exam, you can expect friendly service and attentive care. We put your needs first so you can feel confident that your eyes will be appropriately taken care of.
Most patients report our comprehensive eye exams as efficient and generally painless. We use non-invasive diagnostic tools to keep you comfortable while we assess your ocular health.
Your appointment will begin with preliminary testing, which provides us with necessary information about your eyes and their health. The initial tests include:
After the preliminary tests, you will meet with one of our optometrists to discuss your results and perform some manual exams. During this time, you can ask any questions you may have to ensure you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about your eyes, health, and vision.
Some manual tests your optometrist will perform:
Visiting your optometrist regularly helps us monitor any changes to your health and vision and make appropriate recommendations for treatment programs when necessary. The Manitoba Association of Optometrists recommends adults between the ages of 19 and 65 visit their eye health professional at least every two years.
Adults over the age of 65 should visit their optometrist annually. The risk of developing vision-threatening conditions increases significantly with age, so having your optometrist evaluate your health can help preserve your health and vision as long as possible.
At Henderson Vision Centre, we are dedicated to providing you with top-quality care and friendly service to ensure your health and vision are cared for.
You can find us in the River East Plaza, between Safeway and Booster Juice, and across from Tim Hortons. We have plenty of parking available on-site.
*Please note we are CLOSED on Saturdays of long weekends and for the months of July and August.
“Just had the first eye exam for my daughter with Dr. Chow. My daughter really does not like doctors… but Dr. Chow was perfect she did the exam flawlessly and handled my daughter’s objections really well. ZERO stress. Now my daughter is excited to come back for her next eye exam in a year. Thank you also to Dr. Mestito-Dao super nice and super accommodating! Not to mention the staff, pro’s at what they do. Thank you and nicely done HVC!”
“I had a very good experience with this clinic. The reception staff were warm, and efficient. My insurance coverage was handling very well. The pre-exam procedures were done well, by staff that were well versed in doing them. The Optometrist (Dr Zimmer), was excellent to deal with and very thorough. The office had a pleasant ambiance, and I left my appointment with a very “good feeling” about the whole experience. I will be booking my appointments with this clinic again.”
“Every time I go to the H.V.C. I’m very pleased with Dr. Mundle & his staff’s thorough eye examination. They always take their time to explain & answer any questions I have regarding their tests & procedures.”
“Everyone was very friendly. They went over and above to explain everything to me. Helped me pick out new glasses which I’m obsessed with. When I went back in to pick them up the girl was so excited to help me and I left feeling so confident.”
“The staff are so friendly and it’s a very welcoming place. I see Dr. Mestito-Dao and I always feel like she listens to me and offers great feedback & advice. The exams are thorough so I also feel reassured that I’m in good hands and have had a comprehensive appointment. I would recommend Henderson Vision Centre to anyone.”
