If The Details Always Look a Little Fuzzy, It’s Probably Time to Pay Us a Visit

As we get older our eyes start to misbehave. Diseases that impair vision, such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, become more common the older we get. Staying on top of your eye health is important- vision lost to eye diseases can’t be restored.

Our approach to eye care is simple: by getting in-depth information about your eye health, and by taking high-resolution images of your eye, we can ensure that we are always properly managing any underlying eye diseases that could cause vision loss. Working together, we will ensure you have the best vision possible.

Changes to Vision Are Normal

Nearly 8% of Canadian adults (2.5 million people) have cataracts. Of those that do, most are over age 60. In fact, by the time you reach 65, it’s more likely than not that you’ll have some type of cataract forming.

As vision changes, we can work together to correct presbyopia, manage refractive errors, treat eye diseases, and more. As normal as changing eyesight is, there is much we can do to preserve and extend your visual acuity.

What to Expect During an Eye Exam

An eye exam takes approximately 1 hour to complete, including our pre-examination testing. During the eye exam we will assess your vision quality, update your corrective lens prescription (if needed), as well as identify any underlying eye diseases or conditions that may have formed since your last exam.

The eye exam is non-invasive and is not painful.

Pre-Examination Testing – Our pre-examination tests are a series of diagnostic tests performed with an optometric assistant and various pieces of equipment. Our offices are equipped with some of the most advanced diagnostic equipment available in eye care today, and we are proud to be able to offer our small town and rural patients access to advanced care without having to make a long drive to Calgary or Lethbridge.

Our offices in High River and Vulcan utilize the Topcon Maestro ocular coherence tomography equipment to take detailed images of your retina and optic nerve. This extremely sensitive and detailed assessment of your eye is ideal for detecting glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other vision-threatening eye diseases.

We also utilize high-resolution retinal imaging, using either the Zeiss Visucam (at our Okotoks office) or the Canon Retinal Camera (at our Nanton and High River offices).


Optometrist-Assisted Testing
– After the pre-testing is complete, you will meet with the optometrist who will complete the eye exam. The optometrist will complete specialized tests, many of which build off of the information obtained during the pre-testing. If needed, the optometrist finalizes your new (or updated) corrective lens prescription and determines your level of visual acuity.

The optometrist performs various tests, such as a slit-lamp exam, that empower them to make informed diagnoses.

Determining or Updating Your Corrective Lens Prescription – If you require corrective lenses, or your existing prescription requires updating, the optometrist will do so during the exam.

Diagnosing Eye Diseases & Conditions – If your eye has a developing eye disease or underlying condition that affects eye health or vision quality, it will be diagnosed during the eye exam. We perform an in-depth look at your eye health to ensure that we are proactively screening for these conditions.
