 The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends comprehensive eye exams every year for all age groups, and more frequent visits if there is a risk of specific conditions. Many patients are covered for eye exams under OHIP or other health insurance plans. We offer direct billing to all major health benefit insurance plans, including Manulife, Canada Life, Greenshield and Sun Life. Your sight plays a critical role in maintaining your overall quality of life. 

Gordon Wood Eye Associates is more than an eyecare clinic that performs vision exams to update your prescription for eyeglasses only. While a vision exam detects changes to your vision, it is not a medical evaluation of your eyes and can not detect ocular diseases; they can not detect the underlying cause of your vision changes. 

We also provide vision exams and testing for 3rd party requirements including Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Registrar of Motor Vehicles vision reports for driver’s licenses, as well as applications for RCMP, police, or other organizations. Please note that these 3rd party exams and tests are not covered under OHIP and additional fees may apply. 

Comprehensive Eye Exam

A thorough comprehensive eye exam includes a vision exam, but on top of that, our eye doctors evaluate the health of your eye and detect any eye diseases. The comprehensive eye exam will begin at:

  • Understanding and analysis of your medical history and visual needs
  • Measurement of visual acuity
  • Binocular vision assessment
  • Assessment of your eye's internal structures ie. retina, optic nerve, floaters
  • Neurological assessment of the visual system
  • Ocular disease screening


Ocular Diseases

Many ocular diseases are silent, making it difficult to notice the change in your vision. And when you do notice symptoms, the damage is done and is irreversible. Many diseases are preventable with early detection with a full comprehensive eye exam. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. At Gordon Wood Eye Associates, we diagnose, manage, and prevent ocular diseases and disorders including:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetes and diabetic retinopathy
  • Macular degeneration
  • Retinal detachment and other retinal conditions
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Digital eye strain
  • And many more

When necessary, we will refer you to top ophthalmology specialists to co-manage the eye conditions. Consider the doctor of optometry as the family doctor specializing in the eyes. Regular comprehensive eye exams are essential for preserving both your vision and overall eye health. Protect your vision today for a clearer and healthier tomorrow.
