Our services

Professional eye care that cares

Our office is proud to provide comprehensive eye examinations to people of all ages. Eye care is much more than being able to read the letters on a chart. At our office we provide contact lenses, spectacle lens wear, glaucoma testing and management, monitoring of macular degeneration, dry eye treatment, foreign body care, diabetic monitoring and more.


Children: the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that a child’s first examination occur at 6 months and then annually until they are 19 years old.

Adults: eye examinations are recommended at a minimum of every 2 years. Certain health or ocular conditions require more frequent examinations. Seniors: annual examinations are recommended as there is an increased risk of eye diseases with advancing age.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are available to patients of all ages. Contacts are available in a wide range of powers and are capable of correcting near-sightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. Advances in contact lenses have made it possible for many who were previously told that they were not contact lens candidates to be successful contact lens wearers. We offer a wide range of contact lenses from daily disposables to continuous wear contacts. Please speak to your optometrist for more information. 

Surgery Co-Management

At our office we offer pre- and post-operative care for certain eye surgeries. We provide comprehensive eye examinations that can provide crucial information about whether surgery is an option and what surgery would be recommended. LASIK, PRK and CLE are just a few of the surgeries possible. Visit the Ontario Association of Optometrists website to learn more about eye surgeries.

Retinal Imaging Optometry

Retinal Imaging Optometry has come a long way from just being able to read 20/20. With the advent of retinal photography and the use of OCT (optical coherence tomography) we are able to diagnose and manage eye disease early and help minimize the impact on the patient. Annual imaging is recommended for those patients with ARMD, glaucoma, diabetes and those who use certain medications known for their ocular side effects. Visit the American Academy of Ophthalmology website to learn more about retinal imaging.

What Is Optical Coherence Tomography?

American Academy of Ophthalmology Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. With OCT, your ophthalmologist can see each of the retina’s distinctive layers. This allows your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. Learn more about optical coherence tomography at the American Academy of Ophthalmology website.

Diabetes

Diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness in North America. Diabetes can lead to diabetic retinopathy, or disease at the back of the eye. Diabetic retinopathy can lead to vision impairment and blindness. Duration of the disease and poor blood sugar control are both risk factors for retinopathy. The prevalence and impact of diabetes on vision is so profound that annual eye examinations are mandated for people of all ages. Read about diabetes and the eyes at the Ontario Association of Optometrists website.

Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment

Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment Glaucoma is the silent thief. It is not possible to tell that you have glaucoma until the end stages of the disease. Glaucoma is traditionally associated with high pressures inside the eye and leads to progressive loss of your peripheral or side vision. At our office, we provide screening tools for glaucoma and glaucoma management and monitoring. Management and diagnosis is done through a multitude of tools: pressure testing, visual field analysis, pachymetry, gonioscopy and OCT. Visit the Ontario Association of Optometrists website to learn more about glaucoma.
