The only way to ensure healthy vision is to have your eyes examined by an eyecare professional. In addition to evaluating your vision, your optometrist will assess the overall health of your eyes.
Did you know?
Certain health issues can be detected during a routine eye exam. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment such as retinal cameras, certain health concerns can be avoided.
Do you see clearly?
Having 20/20 vision doesn’t necessarily mean your eyes are in perfect health. Only a simple eye exam performed by an eyecare professional can determine this.
Vision + Eye health = a complete exam!
Your vision and ocular health are evaluated through several tests. The following text will help you better understand the importance of each test performed during your next visit with your optometrist.
Visual Acuity Test

Shows your level of refractive error and finds out the night prescription for glasses or contact lenses. It also determines the presence of myopia, hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism and/or presbyopia.
Measures the curvature of the cornea. Keratometer is used to adjust contact lenses as well as screen for certain corneal diseases.
Evaluates the eyes' ability to work together. Adequate muscular synergy permits stereoscopic vision.
