Eye test brampton near me Why you need it?

A complete or comprehensive eye exam is a test that includes vision assessments, as well as the external and internal structure of the eye

Vision is only one part of your complete eye health

It is crucial to regularly have eye exams whether or not you put on glasses or contact lenses, even if your vision is sharp. The eye exam can spot problems that your eyes may be suffering from. We recommend that you take a comprehensive eye examination to ensure that your eyes are working well.

In a thorough eye examination, dilatory eye drops are used to simplify the viewing of the rear portion of the eye called the retina and the optic nerve head, which sends visual signals to the brain.

Comprehensive eye examinations include assessment of visual acuity, periphery, depth perception, eye control and other functions that can influence the vision and eye safety (as clearly seen by the eye at various distances).
Besides, necessary tests for eye disorders, such as macular degeneration, macular dystrophy, and glaucoma, we conduct simple tests.

OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan):

OHIP covers the price of one major eye exam (for vision and general eye health) every year, in addition to minor assessments that you need if you are either 19 years and younger (children) or 65 years and older (seniors). If you are an adult aged 20 to 64 years, you are no longer eligible for eye examinations, as of Nov 1st, 2004. Nevertheless, adults with certain medical conditions; such as diabetes, glaucoma, retinal disease, corneal disease, amblyopia, strabismus, and visually significant cataracts are OHIP covered for a complete eye exam every 12 months. Note: Diabetic and glaucoma patients should bring their medications or a pharmacy print out that shows their prescriptions to the eye exam.)

optometrist brampton What can an optometrist do to improve eye health awareness?

Mac & Co EYECARE is one of the foremost optometrists and eyewear retailers in Brampton. We are committed to helping our patients with the highest standard of eye health and vision care. We also take care to augment the awareness and understanding of optometrists' role in safeguarding patients' health.

There is a common misunderstanding that if people see clearly, then it means their eyes must be healthy. In reality, many severe and sight-threatening eye diseases do not depict early warning symptoms. Optometrists have the skills to detect many of the threatening eye conditions in the early stages.

The Optometrists at Mac & Co EYECARE are quick to explain your eye exam results, report your conditions, describe your options, and hear your eye care needs. We encourage patients to ask questions so that we can monitor, diagnose, and treat their potential vision problems.


Why Should You Take the Eye Exam? What Will Be Asked Before the Test?

A comprehensive eye exam can do more than determine how you can see from a distance and which lens prescription or glasses will give you the best possible vision. If you have not taken an eye examination before or are visiting the optometrist for the first time, you will be asked:

  1. Questions about your medical history.
  2. Your family's medical history.
  3. Vision problems you may have previously suffered.

eye examination What to expect

Case History - Preliminary Testing - Visual Acuity - Binocularity - Ocular Health

  • 1 Case History | To begin with, we will ask about your general health, as well as any eye problems or visual concerns. Family histories of eye disease and drugs you can currently take are also important information to share with us.
  • 2 Preliminary Testing | For a general picture of your vision, we will test your pupils' reaction to light, eye motility, peripheral vision, and colour vision.
  • 3 Visual Acuity | Your level of vision can be measured by reading a simple eye chart with letters and numbers. Refractive error should be tested manually using a phoropter to reliably diagnose near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism. We will ask you to look through different lenses to provide input on which lenses give you the best vision. We can also use a retinoscope to determine how light reflects on these lenses.
  • 4 Binocularity | We'll check your accommodation and eye teaming to see how well your eyes focus and match.
  • 5 Ocular Health | Using diagnostic equipment and high-powered lenses, our eye doctors will examine the retina, retinal structures, and the eye's inner tissues to test for signs of disease or abnormalities. We may apply eye drops to dilate your pupils to facilitate this part of your test. Following our full eye examination, we will share our results to determine the most effective treatment plan.
