The Importance of Eye Exams

What happens in a general eye exam?

During and eye exam the doctor will conduct a variety of tests designed to measure visual acuity. There is no pain or discomfort associated with an eye exam, and in some cases eye drops will be used to look for underlying issues.

How often should you be seen by an Optometrist?

  • Kids 19 and under as well as adults over 65 are covered annually by OHIP

  • Every 2 years is suggested for ages 20-64

Why should you get an eye exam?

Eye exams are important for the maintenance of your overall health, as well as your eye health. Routine eye exams can catch underlying health issues not directly related to your vision, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
