Comprehensive Eye Exam Explained

1. Corrected or Uncorrected Visual Acuities

  • How well can you actually see? This is a very quick and effective way of checking for that with or without your glasses/contact lenses. Using our electronic automated projector, we can easily switch from the English alphabet to numbers, shapes or even movies for those that may have a language barrier or for the young ones.

2. Confrontational Visual Fields

  • This is a screening test to check your peripheral vision, or the “sides” of your vision. Sure you may be able to make out the letters straight ahead, but your vision would be severely compromised if that’s the only thing you see.

3. Pupillary Assessment

  • Pupillary Assessment involves shining UV filtered light into your eyes to assess how well the eyes are signalling to one other and their reactivity to light. A simple, yet essential neurological test as many diseases such as strokes, tumours, trauma and even diabetes can affect how the pupils are working.

4. Extraocular Muscle Mobility Assessment

  • Extra-ocular muscles are the muscles that moves your eyes in every cardinal direction – up, down, left, right and all those in between. This test is especially important if someone reports seeing double vision, or if there is inflammation around the eye. This is a routine test to ensure all muscle groups are functioning properly and in a coordinated fashion.
