Comprehensive Eye Exams
Vision Exams

Numerous places provide vision exams to update your prescription for eyeglasses only, but it is important to understand it is different from a comprehensive eye exam.   While a vision exam detect changes to your vision, but it does not include a medical evaluation of your eyes and can not detect ocular disease.  In other words, they can not detect the underlying cause of your vision changes.  Your sight plays a critical role in maintaining your overall quality of life.

A comprehensive eye exam includes a vision exam, but on top of that, it will include various evaluations to detect eye disease and check the medical health of your eye.  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

  • neurological assessment of the visual system

  • ocular disease screening

Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options.  We offer comprehensive eye exams for all ages.  Gordon Wood Eye Associates is a medical optometry clinic with geriatric and paediatric services.  Annual eye exams are fully covered by eligible OHIP for children who are 19 years old and under, or seniors who are 65 years old and above.  We direct bill to all major insurance companies for individuals not covered by OHIP.


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 are irreversible.  Many diseases are preventable with early detection with a full comprehensive eye exam.  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.
