Halifax, Nova Scotia
During your visit, your doctor will perform a variety of eye tests and procedures to examine the health and function of your eyes. This includes using the most advanced diagnostic instrumentation to assist in careful testing for glaucoma, cataracts and other eye diseases.
Vision is measured for various distances and eye muscle coordination is assessed. Our doctors recommend and utilize Optomap Retinal Imaging as part of a complete eye health assessment.
The need for eyeglasses or contact lenses will be determined, and your doctor will discuss your eye exam results.
In some cases, further special diagnostic procedures such as visual field testing or in-depth glaucoma evaluation may be required, and these are often undertaken on another visit.
Please note that many patients require pupil dilating eye drops for a complete examination, and the operation of a motor vehicle following this type of assessment is strongly discouraged. Those requiring such eye drops include, but are not limited to: persons with diabetes, high nearsightedness, and those over the age of 40. Your eye doctor will determine the need for pupil dilation at your visit.
