Detailed Eye Exams

Eye exams are about more than just updating your prescription. They’re essential for taking a closer look at your eyes for potential issues.

Every eye exam includes optomap retinal imaging and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging to give us a clear look at your ocular health. We aim to prepare a personalized management plan for your eye health needs using all the information we can gather.

Explore Our Technology

When you visit us for your eye exam or eye health check-up, you can expect a full suite of diagnostic technology implemented throughout your experience. 

Our team strives to constantly evolve and find new ways to maximize your eye care experience.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) allows our team to capture 200-degree high-quality images to diagnose and manage different eye diseases, including diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Optos ultra-widefield retinal imaging works by using low-powered lasers and scanning technology to capture a digital image of the retina quickly and noninvasively. This device can help us monitor changes in your vision and develop a treatment plan.

The Nidek RS-330 OCT takes detailed scans of your eyes, providing valuable information about your eye health. OCT technology can detect and monitor conditions like AMD, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

OCT scans are included in every full adult eye exam at no additional charge to help us deliver accurate diagnoses and develop personalized treatment plans.

The Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer gives us more information about your visual health. Visual field testing allows our team to detect and monitor conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

Corneal pachymetry is the measurement of corneal thickness and is vital in monitoring glaucoma. By accurately measuring the thickness of the cornea, we can learn more about the intraocular pressure (IOP) in your eye, a key indicator for glaucoma.

This information helps our team monitor the progression of the disease and determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient.

The iCare tonometer measures intraocular pressure (IOP). Unlike other traditional tonometry methods, the iCare tonometer offers quick and easy IOP measurements without anesthesia or air puffs and is included in glaucoma exams.

All eye pressures that are out of normal ranges are double-checked with Goldmann applanation tonometry, the gold standard for tonometry.

Your Eye Health Comes First

Your eye health is our priority, and we want to do everything we can to help you enjoy clear, healthy vision. We’re constantly investing in new technology to provide accurate diagnoses of your eye health.

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.
