To ensure a smooth and successful examination, please bring the following items with you:
- Your current eyeglasses or magnifiers that you use on a regular basis.
- A family member, friend, or caregiver to provide support and assistance.
- Any eye vitamins or supplements that you are currently taking.
- Samples of reading materials or objects that you are having difficulty seeing.
If you are a driver, please bring your driver’s licence so we can discuss any potential issues related to vision and driving.
The examination typically lasts about an hour and involves a unique low vision evaluation that allows you to try on and experience the low vision glasses being prescribed for you. This way, you will know exactly how much improvement to expect with the glasses.
If you have any questions about the appropriate supplements or vitamins for your specific eye condition, please bring them with you. We will review your current regimen and provide recommendations tailored to your needs.
