Our procedures are non-invasive and will cause minimal to no pain. Some patients may notice a mild stinging with eye drops, but will only feel the sting for 5-10 seconds.
Dilation uses eye drops to cause the pupils (the coloured parts of the eye) to become larger allowing more light into the eye. This allow the doctors to have a better view to the back of the eye. Your doctor will suggest whether or not you will need to dilate on that visit and explain to you what to expect and how long it will take to recover.
Generally, an eye exam will take between 15-20 or more minutes depending on the reason for visit. Please allow for 30-45 minutes including check in and check out.

Yes, as a screening instrument, we use the eye-puff machine (non-contact tonometer) to measure the pressure of the eyes. This is important for conditions including glaucoma. If requested, we can use other methods of measurement for your comfort.
OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomographer. Our unit, the 3D Maestro 1 by Topcon, also has retinal photography built in. What all those words mean is that we are able to take high resolution cross section scans of the retina to allow for early detection and monitoring of many diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other conditions that may affect your eye health.
