Eye examinations are recommended annually for children (from the earliest age), as well as for seniors and adults with special medical conditions or wearing contact lenses. In healthy adults, an examination every 2 years is required. The exam is covered by the Québec health insurance card from 0 to 17 years of age, as well as from age 65.

Advanced equipment for your visual health
Our equipment is at the cutting edge of technology and allows for the most accurate evaluation. They include, among others:
Computerized visual charters
Tonometers (intraocular pressure measurement)
Pachymeters (corneal thickness measurement)
Computerized visual field device (Humphrey): [This instrument is used to assess the extent of peripheral vision and the diseases that can affect it (glaucoma, brain tumours, retinal detachments and other diseases affecting the retina and optic nerve). It is also this instrument that allows us to perform the Esterman test sometimes required by the SAAQ for the driver's licence]
Retinal camera (fundus photography): an image is worth a thousand words... Here, an image is worth a thousand evils! Digital photography allows you to better document your file by helping the optometrist detect changes affecting your eyes during certain pathologies.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) (retinal scan): this retinal layer thickness imaging device allows for earlier detection of several pathologies (such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and other diseases affecting the retina). Facilitating diagnosis, the OCT allows the optometrist to act more effectively and refer the patient more quickly if necessary. Similarly, he will be able to follow the evolution of these pathological conditions with precision.
