Eye Care

Comprehensive Eye Examinations – Adults & Seniors

A comprehensive eye examination is a key component of your primary eye care regimen. Our optometrists, who are exceptionally skilled, can uncover potential problems that could lead to future vision complications.

Even in the absence of noticeable symptoms, it’s suggested that you get an eye examination annually or once every two years if you fall within the age bracket of 20 to 64. Seniors are encouraged to schedule annual examinations. Vision decline frequently occurs when symptoms go undetected or unnoticed. This is why a comprehensive eye exam is such an integral part of having healthy eyes for life.

Our clinic combines the latest technology with an exceptional care experience for each patient. Based on your exam, they can recommend proactive approaches and treatments to support your unique eye health needs.

Comprehensive Eye Examinations – Children

Eye exams are an important part of overall health for children. They should begin getting them at an early age to detect any possible eye health problems or vision concerns.

The Ontario Association of Optometrists recommends children start getting eye exams when they are six months old, and our team at HealthOne can perform them at this time. 

Afterwards, it’s recommended that children get an eye examination between the ages of 2 and three and on an annual basis after this. This ensures continued care for any existing or future eye conditions. If a child has vision issues, they may struggle at school or in other learning environments. This is why getting a comprehensive eye examination is so important. 

After the six-month mark, children should receive another exam between the ages of 2 and 3, and on an annual basis afterwards. This will ensure any possible eye diseases are identified and treated early. Children who experience problems with their vision may struggle in school and learning environments, so a comprehensive examination can help them reach their fullest potential. 

Retinal Scans

An important part of eye health is the retina, optic nerve, and retinal structures. A retinal scan is a procedure that allows us to indicate the health of these areas, which are critical for eye sight.

During the procedure, our optometrist will use a special camera to take a high-res photo of your retina. This will be used as a comparison in future appointments to track any potential changes. It can help identify diseases such as macular degeneration, retinal tears and detachments, glaucoma, and other retina-related diseases.

Contact Lens Fitting

Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses. They can be customized and created to fit your specific vision needs, just like regular eyewear.

You may choose to wear contact lenses daily or only for certain occasions, like an event or during a sports game. The first thing you need to do is have a contact lens fitting appointment to ensure proper fit and hygiene.

Step 2Contact lens consultation (including a contact lens fitting, measuring of the corneal curvature, pupil, and iris, and tear film evaluation)

Dry Eye Assessment

Dry Eye Disease (DED) is when the amount or quality of the tears being produced doesn’t keep the surface of the eyes properly lubricated.

It is a chronic medical condition that, although manageable, can be challenging to deal with.  

People who have Dry Eye Disease may frequently experience undesirable symptoms including red, watery, eyes, light sensitivity, blurry vision, and a burning or scratchy feeling. It’s crucial for this condition to be managed by an Optometrist because it can cause further complications such as cornia damage or loss of vision of left untreated. 

At HealthOne Optometry, we perform specialized dry eye tests to fully understand your unique case including your symptoms and tear quality.

LipiFlow Dry Eye Treatment (Toronto Location)

Dry eyes are often the result of a lack of oil in our tears. When this happens, the tears can evaporate prematurely and leave our eyes feeling uncomfortable and dry.

Many dry eye patients deal with excessively teary eyes when it’s windy. 

Lipiflow is an advanced treatment used to restore the oil levels in our tears. It is a quick 12 minute procedure where an activator is inserted around the eyelid and gently pulsates to clear any blockages in your oil glands. 

It’s recommended that you first come in for a dry eye consultation before booking a Lipiflow procedure. We may be able to complete both appointments in the same day. Click here to book your dry eye consultation. 

If you have already completed a dry eye consultation, click here to book your Lipiflow appointment. 

Eye Emergencies and Emergency Appointments

In the unfortunate case where an accident happens, it’s important for you to have access to emergency eye care.

At HealthOne, our Optometrists are thoroughly trained in treating eye emergencies and can properly diagnose and treat you. 

We suggest that you visit your eye doctor before going to the emergency room if you are experiencing vision loss, double vision, redness or eye pain, styes, pink eye, concussions, infections, itchiness or irritation, contact lens issues, foreign materials in the eyes, or have been exposed to chemicals. 

We offer emergency eye care services for new and existing patients.

HealthOne Optometry gives priority to emergency situations. Appointments may be booked the same day.

If you’d like to learn more about your options for contact lenses, speak with one of our optometrists.

Blue Blocking Technology

Blue light is a type of light that digital screens like computers phones, and tablets emit.

It causes us to strain our eyes and can cause damage to them. Long term exposure can influence your sleep schedule and cause unpleasant symptoms such as headaches, sore eyes, or long-term macular damage. 

The good news is that blue light blocker glasses can protect your eyes from blue light. In addition, they can reduce the glare and minimize the chances of you developing retinal damage. A member of our team at HealthOne Optometry would be pleased to discuss your options for blue light blocker glasses. 

Sunglasses

If you’re in need of sunglasses or prescription sunglasses, HealthOne Optometry is the place for you!

We’re passionate about teaching our patients about the importance of preventative eye care, and that includes protecting your eyes from the sun. UV light that comes from the sun can be extremely damaging to the eyes. This is why you need protective lenses that are also hiqh quality.

You might think you only need sunglasses when the sun is out. However, we suggest wearing sunglasses all year to keep your eyes the most protected and prevent potential eye diseases. Our sunglasses brands include top designers such as Gucci, Fendi, Kate Spade, and Tommy Hilfiger. We also carry sunglasses for women, men, and kids that balance style with functionality. You can get your sunglasses made with a prescription or without.

Dry Eye Therapy with I-MED Pharma

Dry Eye Disease is a condition where the eyes become dry as a result of the tears produced not being able to properly lubricate them.

The result is uncomfortable symptoms that can interfere with daily life. One of the biggest causes of Dry Eye Disease is our increased time spent looking at screens. 

At HealthOne, we have an innovative tool called the I-PEN Osmolarity System. It’s a diagnostic device that measures tear film osmolarity related to dry eyes. It is a quick and minimally invasive way to learn more about the specific traits of your dry eyes. After the procedure, our team will recommend products from I-MED to further support your dry eye treatment plan. They offer a unique line of products that can treat dry eyes affordably. 

We also offer I-MED Pharma’s unique line of products designed for dry eye treatment at an affordable cost.

I-DROP® (Eye Drops) (Toronto Location)

I-DROP® is an eye drop that provides viscoadaptive artificial tears without any preservatives.

As the only eye drop of its kind, I-DROP is a top tier choice for relieving dry eye symptoms quickly. It is one of many products offered by I-MED for the treatment of Dry Eye Disease. A great benefit is that it often requires less usage than other similar products on the market. Our Optometrist can educate you about how eye drops can play a role in your dry eye treatment. 

I-LID ’N LASH® (Wipes) (Toronto Location)

I-LID ‘N LASH are hydrating wipes that can be used to clean the eyes.

They are a great option for patients who experience Dry Eye Disease. When the Meibomian glands don’t produce enough oil, the tears can evaporate too quickly and leave the eyes feeling dry. Wipes are a great way to remove debris and cleanse the eye area while improving overall eye health. 

I-VU® Omega-3 Plus (Nutrition & Vitamins)(Toronto Location)

Many people overlook the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids for eye health. Most Canadians do not get enough of it in their diet, which is why supplements are a great alternative. 

At HealthOne, our Optometrists may recommend a supplement to support your eye health and health in general. 

It can be an effective strategy for reducing the development of dry eyes and their associated symptoms. Foods including fresh fish, seafood, fruits and leafy greens are all high in Omega-3’s, so if you do not eat a lot of them, it is likely a good idea to take I-VU Omega-3 Plus. Speak with our Optometrist to learn more about the role of nutrition and vitamins in your eye care approach. 

I-RELIEF™ Hot & Cold Therapy Eye Mask with ThermaBeads™ (Toronto Location)

If you have dry eyes, moist heat therapy is a great option for treatment. It can be done using a hot or cold therapy mask like the I-RELIEF from I-MED. The consistent use of a compress can have great benefits for your eyes including improved circulation and reduced tear evaporation. This makes it a wonderful treatment option for dry eyes.

Can I buy contact lenses over the counter or do I need a prescription?

You cannot buy contact lenses over the counter. You will need a prescription for contact lenses in order to buy them at an Optometrist or online. Please keep in mind that a prescription for contact lenses is different than a standard glasses prescription. You can speak with your Optometrist to receive a prescription if this is what your vision needs require. 

Do you need an eye test for contact lenses?

You can use a prescription for contact lenses if it is not expired. If you have not had your eyes checked by an Optometrist in some time, though, you should book an appointment for an eye exam to receive an updated prescription. Our clinic accepts appointments for eye exams. 

How long do contacts last?

The answer is dependent on the type of contact lenses. Daily contacts should be discarded and replaced daily, weekly, bi-weekly or months depending on the type. Extended-wear contact lenses are less common and not prescribed as often, however, they can be worn for up to a month before needing replacement. People who require long-term contacts are usually provided with rigid glass permeable contacts. 

Are prescription glasses covered by OHIP?

Glasses and contact lenses are not covered by OHIP. There are some health insurance plans that include Optometry services. Check with your provider directly to see if this is an option you have. 

Can an optometrist treat dry eye?

A skilled Optometrist will be able to try dry eyes. Our team at HealthOne specializes in treating dry eyes including the usage of an advanced machine called Lipiflow. It is an effective and safe method for treating dry eyes. 

Should I worry about dry eyes?

If you have dry eyes, it’s important to visit an eye doctor. They are a chronic condition that can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as red, watery eyes, pain, light sensitivity, and burning or scratchy feelings. Luckily, there are products and treatment options available to help. Speak with an Optometrist, like a team member at HealthOne, to learn more about how you can reduce your likelihood of developing dry eyes and treat any current symptoms. 

Can too much computer time cause eye problems?

Eye problems including dry eye symptoms, blurry vision, and headaches can all happen as a result of too much time on the computer. This is why you should take breaks often to help improve the onset of symptoms. In addition, an Optometrist can teach you additional strategies to improve and maintain overall eye health.
