Our comprehensive eye exams check for three criteria: whether you need glasses or not, how your eyes work together and then your ocular health. After a thorough history of the patient’s visual and medical reason for the visit, the doctor will conduct appropriate tests to get the correct prescription for their needs. The second half of the exam is called the dilated fundus exam, where the doctor will instill a drop in your eye to dilate your pupils so that he can look inside of your eyes to check for many of the diseases that can affect the eye.
Dr. Bastiampillai specialized in Pediatrics during his time in Optometry school. Children are never too young for an exam, Dr. Bastiampillai uses pictures and toys to engage the child. The exam consists of testing visual acuity, testing for eye turns, binocular vision, and ocular health.
Children are recommended to have their first eye exam at 6 months old, second exam at 3 years, third at 5 years old and annual exams during their school years. Children are covered by OHIP once a year until they are of 19 years old.
