This includes an all-around look into the refraction, health, and binocularity of your eyes. Routine eye exams are important in maintaining the quality of your vision. Our clinic is equipped with the newest technology available, including a Daytona Optos retinal camera (which takes a 200 degree picture of the posterior portion), a visual field analyzer (which can detect changes to your central and peripheral vision), and an Optical Coherence Tomographer, or OCT (which maps out the layers of your retina, giving a 3D perspective of your ocular health).
These pieces of equipment allow us to maintain a quantitative record of your ocular health over time, which ultimately means better optometric care for you. The quicker any changes are detected, the better the outcome – which is why it is important to see your optometrist on a regular basis! View our FAQ page for more information.
Whether you are interested in laser eye surgery to correct your vision, or whether you need to be referred to a specialist for ocular heath concerns, we can take care of these referrals for you.
After surgery has been completed, we offer on-going care and follow-ups. Keeping your surgeon up-to-date on your progress, you can rest assured that you will experience quality care with both Dr. Tatebe and Dr. Cook. Not only does this eliminate long delays in your surgeon’s waiting room, but you can avoid the repeated lengthy trips to the major city centre as well!
Did you know that your optometrist can prescribe ocular-related medication as well? Instead of bombarding your GP with concerns about your eyes, let your optometrist assist you! The optometrist has the specialized equipment needed to take care of your eyes, so let them do the prescribing specific to your eyes’ needs. Not only does this refer to patients suffering from common red eye symptoms, but also for patients with glaucoma. Both Dr. Tatebe and Dr. Cook can co-manage your care with the ophthalmologist, thereby helping you avoid long delays in the waiting room.
In addition to the vast assortment of frames, we also have access to a large variety of contact lenses. Every contact lens is chosen by our doctors to not only suit your needs, but to fit your eyes. Different brands and methods of wearing will change the type of contact lens best suited for you. We carry various types of daily, two-weekly, and monthly soft contacts for all ranges of powers; and are also able to fit rigid-gas-permeable (RGP) lenses. And we don’t stop there! Did you know that there are such things as “progressive” contact lenses? If you wear progressives, bifocals, or reading glasses, but want the benefit of contact lenses, these could be just the thing for you. Come and talk to one of our doctors to find out more about your options.
Frames / spectacles / lenses – however you want to refer to them – these optical necessities are the most common pieces of eyewear to be worn, updated, broken, or misplaced by the majority of the population who wear them. Whatever the reason for seeking new frames, our dispensing staff will assist you in selecting fashionable, functional, and affordable frames to suit your prescription needs. If there is something in particular that you are after, visit our Eyewear page for a list of lines that we currently carry.
