Comprehensive Eye Exams
By getting an in depth look at the structures within the eye our optometrist not only tests your vision but the overall health of your eyes. This can help with early detection of ocular and systemic diseases which can have serious implications on your health and well being. In certain cases a dilation of the pupil may be necessary for further evaluation.
Other conditions our optometrist can manage and treat include:
- Dry Eye Syndrome
- Conjunctivitis (Pink eye)
- Foreign body removal
- Hordeolum and Chalazion
- LASIK consultation
- LATISSE for eyelash growth
- Age Related Macular degeneration
- Meibomian Gland Dysfunction
- Posterior Vitreous Detachment
- Retinal Detachment
Contact Lenses are a popular means of vision correction. They can be used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. Contact lenses are convenient, however, proper care is very important. This includes training for first time users, yearly contact lens fits and proper education on care and hygienic use.
Children and Seniors Vision
Children and seniors vision can change very quickly, which is why a yearly eye exam is recommended and covered by Alberta Health Care for children 18 years and younger and seniors 65 and older. It is recommended that infants receive their first eye exam between the 6-9 months of age.
Henry Family Vision is a proud member of the Eyesafe program administered by the Alberta Association of Optometrists on top of providing a wide variety of safety lenses and frames for whatever your workplace demands.
OCT Scan (Ocular Coherence Tomagraphy)
This device performs an ultrasound of the back of the eye, allowing early detection of numerous ocular diseases.
A retinal camera takes a picture of the back of the eye called the retina, the image aids our doctor in diagnosing and monitoring eye disease. Our retinal camera and OCT scanner are conveniently combined into one machine!
Visual Field Test
This machine measures central and peripheral vision. We primarily use this for glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, however, this machine has much more utility than just that. By testing for peripheral vision loss and vision abnormalities we can identify multiple conditions associated with those symptoms, such as macular degeneration, retina disease, optic neuropathy, brain tumors and stroke.
