Spectacle Prescription

Having trouble with blurry vision? A spectacle (or glasses) lens tries to focus a clear image onto the retina. The doctor’s prescription is due mainly to the shape of your cornea. If you are only nearsighted (myopic) or farsighted (hyperopic), then you have what is called a “spherical” prescription. After an eye exam, if you need corrective lenses, you will receive a prescription that will describe what strength of lens you need.

Contact lens fitting and dispensing

Another option to correct vision that is unclear is to wear contact lenses. A contact lens is a thin, curved lens placed on the film of tears that covers the surface of your eye. Measurements will be taken of your eye to check the curve and diameter you require for your lenses. A variety of contact lens brands are available for purchase at The Opto Clinic.

Diabetic Eye exam

In Ontario, the cost of eye examinations for those with diabetes is covered through OHIP, regardless of age. It is recommended that people with diabetes should have an eye exam every year, or as recommended by an eye doctor. Eye exams give those living with diabetes an indication of how the disease is impacting their overall health. In North America, eye disease due to diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness in people between 30 to 69 years of age.

Glaucoma Evaluation

Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive eye disease caused by damage to the optic nerve, which leads to vision loss. Damage is often related to high pressure in your eye; an abnormality in the eye’s drainage system can cause fluid to build up, leading to excessive pressure.  Glaucoma is a difficult disease to detect without regular, complete eye exams because it has no noticeable symptoms. 

If you are 20 to 64 years old, and you have a specific medical condition affecting your eyes that requires regular monitoring, OHIP will cover a major eye exam once every 12 months and any follow-up appointments related to the condition.

Ocular disease management

Common eye diseases are

  • Age-related macular degeneration, the part of the retina responsible for colour vision and detailed sight. As the disease progresses, your central vision is slowly lost.
  • Cataracts are when the proteins in our natural lenses become opaque over time, causing clouding of vision and dimming of colours if not treated. 
  • Conjunctivitis, also known as ‘pink eye’, are caused by three main factors: allergies, bacteria, or viruses. We can help determine the cause and course of treatment.
  • Flashes and floaters — while most ‘floaters’ are harmless, if you experience sudden flahses of light, accompanied by a shower of floaters, you may be experiencing a retinal tear or retinal detactment. This is a serious condition that requires treatment as soon as possible to prevent permanent vision loss. 

At The Opto Clinic we aim to help protect your eye health. We will assess your eyes’ needs and develop a plan for care.

motor-vehicle accident ocular assessment

Have you been in a car accident? Motor vehicle collisions are responsible for a significant number of eye injuries every year.1 If you have been in a car accident, visit us as soon as possible to determine course of treatment, if necessary, to ensure best outcomes.

Myopia control management

Myopia is when the eye is longer than normal from front to back, or the cornea is too steeply curved. Affecting vision, it is often corrected with glasses and/or contact lenses, but sometimes with surgery. Myopia is particularly important to manage during childhood, which can either completely stop or slow down myopia progression. With regular monitoring, myopia can be kept from impacting your ocular health significantly.
