What can you expect from your eye exam in Oyen?

First our friendly receptionist will take your contact information including phone number, address, etc. Then one our of trained optometric assistants will escort you to a "pre-screening" area where they will take measurements like the shape of your eye, an estimate of you vision, color vision, depth perception, blood pressure and pressures within the eye. An Optomap retinal image is generally taken at this time also.  Our technicians will ask some questions about any visual or medical history and record the amount of vision you have with your natural vision and with any eye glass or contact lens correction you currently wear. They will also do a few more tests that will give the doctor a starting point on how well your eyes work together as a team.

Then Dr. Hagens or Dr. Pratt will check your eyes for vision errors as well as for eye health and medical concerns. Frequently eye drops are used to "dilate" the pupils (open them wide so that a more through look inside of the eyes is possible) and photos of the inside of the eye may also be recommended. After the initial evaluation, the doctor may request further specialized testing on her findings. The entire exam is painless (other than a short stinging if eye drops are used), and can take anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes depending on which tests are needed.

What can you expect from your eye exam in Kindersley?

First our friendly receptionist will update your contact information including phone number, address, etc. Then Dr. Hagens or Dr. Pratt will escort you to our spacious exam room (with lots of extra chairs for accompanying family members).  There she will take ask some questions about any visual or medical history and record the amount of vision you have with your natural vision and with any eye glass or contact lens correction you currently wear. She will also take measurements like color vision, depth perception, blood pressure and pressures within the eye, depending on your age.

Then the doctor will check your eyes for vision errors as well as for eye health and medical concerns. Frequently eye drops are used to "dilate" the pupils (open them wide so that a more through look inside of the eyes is possible) and photos of the inside of the eye may also be recommended.  An automated screening of your peripheral vision will also be done if you are over aged 19.  Because these areas are so critical, a form of ultrasound of the optic nerve and macula will be taken for all patients aged 65 and older.  We believe you will find your exam exceptionally thorough and all questions will be answered along the way!

The entire exam is painless (other than a short stinging when dilating drops are used), and can take anywhere from 20 to 90 minutes depending on which tests are needed.
