During the eye exam
The optometrist will carry out a thorough examination of your eyes to make sure you have the correct glasses or contact lenses prescription and to evaluate the health of your eyes. The optometrist will pay particular attention to the latter and carry out specific tests appropriate to your age group.
The scanner and the digital retina camera, which produces high-resolution images of the retina, are used for the early detection of eye diseases such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and eye conditions associated with diabetes. Retinal imaging is included in the cost of a basic exam. However, they are not included when the basic exam is covered by the "Régie d'assurance maladie du Québec" (RAMQ)
Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner
Unique in Montreal, VU includes the use of their OCT scanner with every eye exam. Also known Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), this scanner provides very precise images of the different layers of the retina. These images can be used to detect early signs of eye disorders, including certain diseases of the retina and optic nerve glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, and this before the symptoms manifest themselves.
The use of the optical coherence tomographie scanner also makes it possible to properly refer cases to an ophthalmologist and to perform a better follow-up, if a problem is detected. VU offers you the most complete eye exam in Montreal there is, with experienced optometrists.
