Eye & Vision Exams

At Merivale Vision Care, we take the time to explain the value of maintaining good vision throughout life, not just when you experience vision problems.

Eye and vision problems often do not have obvious symptoms, but are easily diagnosed by a licensed optometrist. By diagnosing eye and vision conditions early on, your Merivale Vision Care optometrist is able to provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss before it’s too late.

What should you expect when you book an eye exam at Merivale Vision Care? With your optometrist, your eye exam will include:

Learning About You

During the eye exam, your optometrist collects important details in order to determine if you need any treatments or are vulnerable to vision conditions. Your optometrist will ask you questions about:

  • Symptoms or issues you are experiencing such as blurred vision
  • Current medications
  • Work environment
  • Overall health
  • Family history and previous eye or vision conditions

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. Your optometrist will measure how each eye is seeing by using a computerized eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, your optometrist may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.

Eye Function Testing

Ever feel like your eyes can’t focus? An eye exam in our clinic includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrists perform several tests to evaluate:

  • Depth perception
  • Color vision
  • Eye muscle capabilities
  • Peripheral vision
  • Responsiveness to light

Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether your eyes are:

  • Focusing
  • Moving
  • Working together

Test results enable your optometrist to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing your eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health Evaluation

During the eye health evaluation your optometrist will use a microscope to inspect the frontal structures of the eye and add a series of lenses to examine inside of the eye. All full eye exams include wide field digital retinal imaging called an Optomap. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scans are also utilized when needed. OCTs help us understand the risk and extent of Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and other diseases of the retina.

questions about the nature of vision care

Eye care, like all medical exams and treatment, is individualized. So the best way to know what is right for you is to ask your optometrist. Under general terms, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends the following eye exam frequency for anyone who is at low risk vision loss:
