Eye Exams for All Ages

Eye exams are an important part of preventive health care. We provide a thorough checkup for eyes of all ages, both to help everyone in your family see properly and to detect early signs of eye disease.

We prioritize taking the time to get to know you and your family and tailor our treatments to your unique needs. We’re happy to explain procedures or tests to help you feel comfortable.

How Often Do I Need an Eye Exam?

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that low-risk patients adhere to these guidelines at a minimum:

  • Adults between the ages of 20 to 39 should have an eye exam every 2 to 3 years.
  • Adults between the ages of 40 to 64 should have an eye exam every 2 years.
  • Adults 65 years and older should have an annual eye exam.

Patients with diabetes, high myopia, or other vision conditions should have more frequent examinations. We will work with you and your unique needs to determine the best exam schedule for your eyes.

Book your appointment today to keep on track with your eye health.

What Happens During an Eye Exam?

When you first walk into our practice, you’ll be greeted by our friendly team. If you’re a new patient, we’ll ask some questions about your health history, lifestyle, and current medications. We’ll discuss your family history, give you time to ask questions, and address any concerns.

Comprehensive eye exams are more than just a vision test. Our questions about your health and family history are designed to help us assess your risk factors for eye diseases or other vision conditions.

During the exam, we will carefully and thoroughly evaluate both the internal and external structures of the eye using modern technology. We will measure your visual acuity to determine whether you need corrective lenses or if you already have them if your prescription is up-to-date.

We may also assess your colour vision, binocular vision (how well the eyes work as a team), depth perception, and how your pupils respond to light.

Book Your Appointment Today

Even if you think you have perfect vision, it’s still important to have regular eye exams. Eye diseases can begin with little to no symptoms, so a comprehensive exam remains the best way to assess any early signs of eye disease.

Help preserve your sight for years to come by booking a comprehensive eye exam today for every member of your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we accept all prescriptions for glasses that have not expired. If your prescription is expired or you need to have your prescription assessed, we are more than happy to book you an appointment with one of our doctors for an exam.

We make glasses in-house, and it takes around 3 hours for us to edge the lenses into your frame of choice. If glasses need to be ordered in, they typically take around 7 to 10 business days. Specialty orders may take longer to arrive. Our optical will do our best to give you an accurate time estimate and have your glasses made as soon as we can.

A full eye exam includes the following:

  • A comprehensive ocular and medical history check-up to identify or assess your risk factors for certain eye diseases
  • A vision check and prescription for glasses, if warranted
  • Binocular vision testing to check how your eyes are functioning together
  • A measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) on all patients
  • An optomap scan of your retina on all patients
  • An OCT (optical coherence tomography) scan for adults
  • A comprehensive eye health check in the office by the doctor
  • If warranted, your eye doctor may recommend a visual field test to better assess peripheral vision in Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) use, glaucoma, etc.

Children (18 and under), seniors (65+), or those with certain medical conditions are eligible for medical services plan (MSP) coverage. MSP covers part of the eye exam and visual field tests (think of it like insurance), lowering the total cost of the exam you/your insurance is responsible for. We do not charge for children age 2 and under.

A patient is NOT eligible for MSP coverage if:

  • You are from out of province
  • Not registered with BC medical
  • If you have had an eye exam elsewhere within the past year
Service Full Cost If MSP Billable
Adult Eye Exam (19+) $152 $105
Adult Contact Lens Wearer Eye Exam (19+) $167 $120
Child Eye Exam (2-18) $85 $30
Child Contact Lens Wearer Eye Exam (2-18) $100 $45

Yes, we are more than happy to be a part of your LASIK journey. We are pleased to offer post-op follow-ups.

Yes, we can directly bill most insurance companies. If your insurance company is not eligible for direct billing, we will provide you with a detailed receipt to submit for reimbursement.

Please bring a list of medications, your glasses and contact lenses (or your last prescription), and any forms that need to be completed.

Full eye exams are usually between 30 to 45 minutes.

Our office offers wide-field retinal imaging with the optomap machine on all patients who are physically able to. The optomap scan provides a 200-degree image of the retina (inside lining of the eye).

In certain cases, dilation is still recommended to better assess the retina and check for cataracts and other ocular diseases. If you are dilated, we encourage bringing a driver with you so you feel more safe on the way home.
