- Refraction: This test is used to find the best-corrected vision, if necessary for prescription eyewear or contacts. Our doctors will try various lenses in front of each eye, as you focus on a chart at a distance or up-close, to help determine the best power of correction.
- Colour vision: You will be shown a series of images with symbols embedded in color dots or patterns. Based on your ability to identify the symbols, certain types of color-blindness can be diagnosed or ruled out.
- Ophthalmoscopy: This test is often done with an ophthalmoscope, a handheld instrument with a light and magnifying lenses. Through ophthalmoscopy, our aim is to inspect the retina and the surrounding inner eye. This test can help diagnose problems with the retina or retinal detachment and monitor diseases like glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
- Tonometry: This test measures intraocular pressure, which can indicate glaucoma if the pressure is abnormally high. Your inner eye pressure is measured either with a puff of air in the cornea or by a brief, direct contact with the cornea to measure how easily it is pushed inward.
