Our Eye Examinations Include

Visual Acuity Test: Read letters from each side as you're covering one eye. This test compares your sight to standard 20/20 vision.

Peripheral Visual Field Test: We will determine how well you can see on the "outskirts" or the side of your vision. If you have gaps in your peripheral vision, we can address them with glasses or contact lenses.

Keratometry Test : Using this test, we determine the shape and curve of your cornea, as well as whether or not you have astigmatism. If you have astigmatism or a steep/elongated cornea, this will affect the prescription that you need.

Refraction Test: We use a refraction test to determine your ideal eyeglass prescription and whether you're nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism.

Retinoscopy: Using a phoropter, we perform a retinoscopy to determine the best lens for you. We will switch out different lenses as you tell us if the focus gets more or less clear. We will shine a light into your eyes to determine how it affects your eyesight.

Intraocular Pressure Measurement : An abnormal eye pressure may be a warning sign of glaucoma. We will use specialized equipment to determine whether or not the pressure in your eye is normal.

How Often Should Eye Exams Be Conducted?

Eye exams for children 18 and under as well as seniors 65 and over should be conducted once every year to maintain ideal eye health. Eye exams for adults should be conducted at least once every two years. It doesn't require any medical referral for you to visit an optometrist. If you experience any of the following signs regularly, you should visit Eyecare Plus for a comprehensive test sooner than the normal recommended schedule:
  • Difficulty reading small print
  • Trouble adjusting focus after looking at near and far objects
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Headaches or dizziness after visual concentration
We also advise that if you experience eyestrain, dry or itchy eyes, difficulty focusing or find yourself rubbing your eyes, you should call Eyecare Plus or book an appointment online to come in to have your eyes assessed with us as soon as possible.

Does My Health Insurance Cover Eye Exams?

Alberta Health Care covers one eye examination per year for patients 18 and under as well as patients that are 65 and over. For those between ages of 18 and 65, most health insurance companies will cover you for an eye exam once every two years. For additional information regarding your vision care plan prior to your appointment, please contact your insurance company directly.

If you have any questions about billing or pricing, please contact our office.
