Common Tests

eye doctor with scopeWhile there are some basic eye vision tests common to most eye exams, children and young adults have different vision testing needs than say, a healthy middle-aged adult, or an adult with a history of eye problems.

Vision testing equipment ranges from simple tools like the “Big E” eye chart (Snellen Chart) and a hand-held penlight and eye cover, to more complex devices that swap lenses in front of your eyes or use special lamps to view the eye’s structure. A comprehensive eye exam includes vision testing, and vision testing equipment that is common to almost all eye exams, but is often tailored to your age, your specific need, or your individual symptoms. The following are some common tests you may be given during a routine eye exam.

Dear Patients,

Ontario will be entering LOCKDOWN on December 26 @12:01AM by order of the Government of Ontario for at least 28 days. Please note that medical care including Optometry services are NOT impacted by these changes.

We are open throughout the holiday season (Closed Dec25-27 and Dec31-Jan3) for orders, with very limited in person care. We will be open for full care on Jan 4. We will reserve two urgent care appointments each day during the province-wide lockdown to help reduce the number of eye related emergency room visits for our current patients.
