Eye Exams in Georgetown, Ontario for Healthy Vision

Visiting your family doctor for an annual checkup is critical to managing your health. Doing the same for your eyes is just as important for maintaining healthy vision and ensuring a high quality of life.

An eye exam involves a thorough, detailed examination of your eyes and visual health. During the exam, our doctors will ask you about your medical history, family history of any diseases or health issues, medications you may be taking, or about any recent hospital visits. Keep in mind that these are all elements that can affect your vision in one way or another.

Your vision can also be affected by other things, such as the climate, hormones, pregnancy, and your personal lifestyle.

Dilating eye drops are a nuisance but are still needed for proper evaluation of the inside of the eye. There is no equipment on the market that can override the use of dilating eye drops which is why the College of Optometrists of Ontario insists on their use.
