High Quality & Affordable Eye Care In Downtown Calgary

A comprehensive eye exam is thorough examination of your overall eye health and vision. This is different from a sight test. A sight test determines your prescription using a computerized software and an automated machine. This test often leads to inaccurate results as it does not take into account a variety of vision and eye issues. To ensure our patients get the best care for their specific needs, we only offer comprehensive eye exams, using the latest technology in the industry.

Your vision is constantly changing. This can be influenced by age, lifestyle, medications and general health problems that come up. With this in mind, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that adults should have comprehensive eye exams at least every two years. Children under the age of 18 and seniors over the age of 65 are covered by Alberta health care and receive free eye exams! At Core Eye Care we offer direct billing to insurance companies – so all you have to do is book your appointment and show up!

What to Expect During Your Comprehensive Eye Exam:

  • Questions about your lifestyle
  • Family health history & past medical or vision issues
  • Questions about medications, as some medications can affect the eyes
  • Detailed analysis of the visual acuity of each eye, individually, together and with corrective lenses
  • Assessment of depth perception, colour and eye coordination
  • Detailed assessment of the health of the eye
  • Measuring prescription at distance, intermediate and near (generating a spectacle and/or contact lens prescription)
  • 200 degree retinal photo with the Optomap Retinal Camera
  • Recommendations for future eye care based on your history and the data gathered from the exam

Expert Eye Care From Experienced Professionals

It’s critical that we obtain an accurate measurement of your vision so you leave our office with a solution that gives you excellent vision and no concerns. To ensure you get the personalized recommendations you need to see clearly, our doctors take the time to understand your background, current lifestyle and get an accurate reading of your eye health. Our comprehensive eye exams last about 30 minutes and include detailed questions regarding family history, past medical and vision issues and current medications taken. Our doctors then complete a comprehensive assessment of your sight, visual coordination, depth perception and screen for any eye health issues. You will walk away with recommendations tailored to your unique needs and answers to any questions you may have.
