What Happens During a Comprehensive Eye Examination?

Iconic Eye Care provides comprehensive eye exams in an environment that’s safe, friendly, and relaxing. Our eye doctor will answer all your questions to ensure that you’re well prepared for the eye exam. During the eye exam, the following will happen:

  • The doctor will review your medical history, including your family history. This assessment will include eye and general health issues that you’ve had in the past or currently have.

  • A careful examination of your eyes, which includes checking whether you can comfortably move your eyes as required. The doctor will also check the health of the inner parts of your eye, including the pressure inside your eyes.

  • Our optometrist will determine your current level of vision. If you currently wear glasses, the eye doctor will check to see whether you require a different prescription.

  • The optometrist will tell you what you need to do to maintain or promote the good health of your eyes.

Who Needs Eye Exams?

Everybody can benefit from a comprehensive eye exam. At Iconic Eye Care, we attend to patients of all ages, from the very young to the senior patient. Patients aged 0-18 years old and above 65 are covered for comprehensive eye exams under Alberta Health Care. If your kindergarten child requires prescription glasses, you may be eligible to receive a free pair thanks to the Eye See Eye Learn program.

If you’re the parent of a young child, we advise that you book periodic eye exams to ensure that your child’s vision problems, if any, don’t go undiagnosed for an extended period. Children may not always know what entails perfect vision—as such, your child may be struggling to see without making this known to you or their teachers. An optometrist can detect any problems with your child’s eyesight before they get out of hand.

If you’ve been struggling with your vision, or want the professional assurance that everything is okay, book an appointment with our eye doctor in Edmonton, AB.
