OUR SERVICES

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends eye exams once a year for children, seniors and contact lens wearers. Unless otherwise stated by your eye doctor, all other patients should be seen once every two years.

VISION & EYE HEALTH EXAMS

You and your Optometrist share the important task of keeping your eyes healthy for a lifetime.

CHILDREN’S EYE EXAMS

Approximately 80% of a child’s early development is dependent on his/her eye sight.

DIABETIC EYE EXAMS

If you have diabetes, you are at a greater risk of eye health problems such as diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema.

LASER VISION CORRECTION

If you feel restricted by wearing glasses or are tired of wearing contact lenses, laser surgery may be a great option for you!

CONTACT LENSES

The doctors at Invision Eyecare will attend to your eye health and ensure that your contact lenses properly correct your vision.

DRY EYE TREATMENT

Our eye care team has developed a new treatment plan to control and/or eliminate symptoms, maintain and preserve vision quality and prevent future eye health complications.

EYE DISEASE DETECTION

At Invision Eyecare, we use the most current technology available to perform our retinal examinations.

DIGITAL FUNDUS (RETINAL) IMAGES

In order to provide a more comprehensive eye exam, the doctors recommend that all patients have retinal images completed.

OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)

This instrument will provide the doctors with a three dimensional cross section of the eye (tissue layers of the retina) similar to an ultrasound but based upon laser light.
