We recommend comprehensive eye exams for all of our patients as it is an extremely vital part of providing the best eye care possible. Have perfect vision? Even those that don’t think they have any problems should visit their eye doctor in Thornhill at least once a year, many eye-related conditions actually have no symptoms or warning signs early on, however, they can be detected by an eye care professional. Not only can getting your eyes checked regularly help to detect any eye issues at an early stage (making them easier to treat) it can also help to determine the overall health of your eyes.

Comprehensive Eye Examinations: What to Expect

At Thornhill Vision Care, we strive to provide the best eye care possible, during your comprehensive eye examination in Thornhill you can expect:

  • Vision Testing

During vision testing, your optometrist will perform vision testing at all distances using an eye chart. This measures the sharpness of your vision.

  • Color Vision

During color vision testing, your eye doctor will test for any possible eye health problems that may be affecting your ability to see all colors properly.

  • Glaucoma Screening

During glaucoma screenings, the “puff-of-air test” also known as non-contact tonometry is typically used to check the pressure inside of your eyes by blowing air onto the surface and checking resistance.

  • Additional Optical Testing

Additional testing may also be performed including binocular vision/eye teaming evaluations, examination of the inside/outside of the eyes and more depending upon your eye health and any findings.

Typically, comprehensive eye examinations take about 30 minutes, however depending upon your eye health, eye care needs and any additional recommended testing it can vary.

How Often Should I Have A Comprehensive Exam?

When it comes to healthy adult patients, we recommend a comprehensive eye exam every 1 to 3 years, those with any eye-related conditions may need to visit more frequently. For younger teens/adults, we recommend vision testing every 3 years, up to the age of 40. Children should have their first eye exam by six months of age, second around age three and then again before starting first grade.
