WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR EYE EXAMINATION?
All of our eye examinations involve a set of tests to assess your vision and eye health. A visual acuity test will check whether you have vision loss or if your prescription needs to be updated. Your optometrist will examine your eyes for abnormalities and look for signs of eye conditions. Depending on factors like your age, medical status and family history of eye health, they may recommend further testing or more regular eye examinations to monitor your eye health. At the end of the examination, you will receive a breakdown of your vision and eye health.
