Our optometrists examine eyes and treat vision problems, usually by prescribing eyeglasses or contact lenses, vision therapy, or rehabilitation programs. They also prescribe medicines to treat some eye diseases and allergies.

Optometrists examine patients’ eyes with several instruments. Retinoscopes, for example, help them see how patients react to lenses of different strengths. Ophthalmoscopes allow them to see the inside of the eye. Based on their examinations, they make diagnoses such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, and they prescribe lenses or other treatments. If an eye disease is diagnosed that requires surgery, they refer patients to ophthalmologists (physicians who perform eye surgery). Sometimes optometrists discover eye conditions caused by systemic problems, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, and they refer their patients to other medical doctors.

Health Canada (Non-Insured Health Benefits) is billed independently for these services by the practitioners.
