Vision Testing

For you and the entire family!

Comprehensive Exam

Complete Eye Exams for ages 19 to 64


Routine eye exams are important even if you see well and have no complaints; your eyes are about more than 20/20.  A comprehensive eye exam can detect sight or life threatening diseases.


Patients between the ages of 19-64 with no existing health or eye conditions should have their eyes checked every 2 years; however, more frequent monitoring may be recommended depending on your needs. 

Senior Eye Exams

Complete Annual Eye Exams for 65+

Manitoba Health Coverage Available
$60 Ocular Fundus Exam Fee

The risk of many eye diseases increases as we become older, and as such more frequent monitoring is recommended.  Patients 65 and older should be seen annually to help with early detection of sight threatening diseases.

Patients 65 and older are covered through Manitoba Health for a routine eye exam. There may be additional testing required that Manitoba Health does not cover.

Pediatric Eye Exams

80% of a child’s learning is based on vision, making vision health vital to a childs growth and development.

A first exam should be done between 6-9 months, then annually after that because kids grow and change so quickly. Children do not need to know their letters or numbers to do an exam.


A vision screening does not replace a comprehensive exam with an Optometrist.
