The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends children’s first ocular examination to be at 6 months of age. Our doctors will adapt their ocular examination for the age of the child. After their first examination we recommend yearly examinations.
Please allow 15-30 minutes for children, and 30-40 minutes for adult examinations.
We recommend yearly eye examinations for all of our patients. Many patients develop conditions without any symptoms. As we have two eyes, most patients that develop conditions in one eye do not realize as their brain starts to use their other eye exclusively.
Children’s vision is precious and vital for learning, yearly Paediatric Ocular Wellness Examinations ensure that your children have the best and most comfortable vision for school work and leisure activity.
Please visit our Ocular Wellness Examination and Paediatric Ocular Wellness Examination pages to see an outline of what to expect. Please bring your sunglasses, all glasses you are currently using, and your health card to the examination.
All adults will have their eyes dilated at their full examinations. Dilation allows our doctors to ensure that your nerve, your blood vessels and the back of the eye are healthy. Dilation will last 2-3 hours, but will be at its worse 30 minutes in and will decrease afterwards. Your near vision will be blurry for 1-2 hours. Please bring a pair of sunglasses, and please bring a driver if you are uncomfortable driving with the drops in.
We do not accept insurance. However we can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company. As well, glasses are considered medical devices and can be claimed on your annual taxes.
