Adult & Senior Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are an important part of maintaining strong ocular health and vision. Eye exams are used to detect issues that have potentially gone unnoticed.
According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, adults should have eye exams:
- Every 2 to 3 years between ages 20 and 64
- At least once a year after age 65
During your eye exam, we will perform a series of tests. We’ll also collect careful medical history to determine if you’re at risk for eye diseases.
These vision tests allow us to determine if treatment is needed, helping correct any issues you may be dealing with.
During eye exams, we test for:
If you’re having problems with your vision or are experiencing any sort of pain, it’s best to book an appointment as soon as possible.
Children’s Eye Exams
Children strongly rely on their vision to learn and develop. Roughly 80% of what children learn is visual. If a child has problems with their vision, they may have difficulty with learning and become frustrated.
From an early age, children’s vision and ocular health must be examined to ensure they’re not at risk of developing serious issues.
Bringing your child in for an eye exam is an effective way to check that their eyes are healthy and their vision is clear. If we notice any issues during the exam, we’ll provide or recommend treatment.
If you’re a parent, don’t worry about the cost of your child’s eye exam. Every child aged 0–19 is covered for a full annual eye exam by the OHIP.

Diabetic Eye Exams
Diabetic patients may require extra attention during regular eye exams. If you have diabetes, you’re at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. This is because diabetes can affect the amount of sugar in your blood in your retina.
During your exam, we will analyze the blood vessels at the back of your eye to see if they have been damaged. If not treated, this can lead to changes in your vision or even blindness.
If you notice any of the following diabetic retinopathy symptoms, please contact us:
- Blurred vision
- Flashes of light in the field of vision
- Sudden loss of vision
- Blotches or spots in vision
In addition to diabetic retinopathy, patients with diabetes are also at risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic macular edema.

Contact Lens Exams
Glasses aren’t always for everyone, we get it. At SaveSight, we’re here to help you find the right contact lenses.
During a contact lens exam, our team works to fit you with the right type of contacts. Well-fitted contacts can make a big difference in comfort and sight.
When you come in for your contact lens exam, we’ll check:
- If you’d benefit more from daily disposable or extended wear lenses
- What type of contact lenses would best serve your needs
- If you need vision correction that specialty lenses could help correct (like multifocal lenses for presbyopia).
Are you interested in wearing contacts? Book an appointment for your lens exam and fitting today.
