Comprehensive Eye Exams
Eye exams are not only for people who need glasses or contacts. Every individual should have comprehensive eye exams to make sure they are seeing clearly and, most importantly, not suffering from any eye diseases.
At Inspire Vision Care, comprehensive eye exams are done with state of the art technology. Many vision liming eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and age related macula degeneration are detected at an early stage and appropriate treatment is performed.
All eye exams will start with a comprehensive medical history, followed by a series of tests to evaluate vision and eye health . These tests consist of: visual acuity assessment, binocular vision testing, refractive testing, eye pressure testing, visual field evaluation, slit lamp assessment, comprehensive retinal assessment with binocular indirect ophthalmoscope and fundus camera.
Adult Eye Examination
All adults under 65 years of age should have a comprehensive eye exam at least once every 2 years to check for eye diseases and monitor any prescription changes. Direct billing service to major private insurances is offered at Inspire Vision Care.
Senior Eye Examination
All adults above the age of 65 years of age should have a comprehensive eye exam ANNUALLY to check for eye diseases and monitor any prescription changes. These annual eye exams are covered by OHIP.
Children Eye Examination
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that children have eye exams starting at 6 months of age. ANNUAL eye exams are recommended after infancy. 80% of learning is visual; therefore, it is important that every child has an annual eye exam. Eye exams are covered annually by OHIP until the age of 19.
Nowadays, most people prefer to wear contacts instead of glasses. If you are interested in contact lenses, please let your eye doctor know prior to your appointment. During your exam, we will discuss the various contact lenses available and determine the best option based on your individual needs and lifestyle.
Ocular Disease Management
Inspire Vision Care specializes in ocular disease management services such as:
- Diabetic eye care
- Macular degeneration
Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well.
Farsightedness, known as hyperopia, makes it difficult to see objects close by. If you are experiencing farsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.
Nearsightedness, known as myopia, makes it difficult to see objects from afar. If you are experiencing nearsightedness, corrective lenses such as glasses or contact lenses will be prescribed. After a thorough examination, we will determine the prescription that’s best for you.
Diabetic Eye Care
While it’s true that the primary symptom of diabetes is high blood sugar (hyperglycemia), it can lead to many other problems throughout the body, including wreaking havoc on your eyes. Some of the most common eye conditions caused by hyperglycemia are cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, which occurs when the tiny blood vessels in your eyes become damaged by the high blood sugar levels over time.
If you are interested in laser surgery, we will begin with a comprehensive eye examination, which will let us know more about you and your needs. We may have to perform some testing to properly diagnose your eye conditions. During this time, the surgeon and staff will go over what you can expect before, during and after the procedure; we want to make sure to give you realistic answers for your unique vision.
What we see is the result of signals sent from the eyes to the brain. Usually, the brain receives signals from both (bi) eyes (ocular) at the same time. The information contained in the signal from each eye is slightly different and with well-functioning binocular vision, the brain is able to use these differences to judge distances and coordinate eye movements.
Emergency Eye Care
Here at Inspire Vision Care, we are here for you in the case of an emergency. There are times when you may need immediate care for your eyes. Any time that you experience trauma to your eyes, you need to be seen. If you get anything in your eye, especially chemicals and foreign objects, you should be seen immediately to limit the potential damage to the eye.
